About This Quiz

From wands and unicorns to spell charms and invisibility cloaks, "Harry Potter" is an epic book and movie series that explores a magical wizardry world. It follows the story of "the boy who lived," otherwise known as Harry Potter himself. With the help of his friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, the golden trio embark on many exciting and daring adventures. But their ultimate goal is to find out more about Harry's past and defeat the dark lord known as Voldemort.

That may sound all fine and dandy, but some of the readers dislike certain elements in the book series. There were many questions that remained unanswered, as well as several plot holes that seemed to be forgotten about. So if you were in charge of the "Harry Potter" storyline, how would you change it? Would you place Harry into Ravenclaw instead of Gryffindor? Or, would you change the basilisk enemy in "Chamber of Secrets" to something more adorable like a fluffy rabbit? Or, perhaps you have a more grim ending in mind for Harry and his friends? Wherever your imagination takes you, it's time to take this magical quiz so we can guess which book is your #1 favorite pick!
