Harry Potter: Movies vs Books- via Bustle

Which one do you favor from the Harry Potter franchise: the books or the movies?

I have to admit I am wholeheartedly a book fan 🙂

Read voraciously.

  1. I am a complete book fan but the movies technically started my love of it. My best friend at the time invited me to see the first movie. I wasn’t super interested but I wanted to hang out with her. After seeing the movie I was in love and immediately picked up book two. I did eventually go back a read book one (I’ve read all multiple times) but I’ve been obsessed with everything Harry Potter ever since.

    1. I read all the books first and then watched the movies in the order of reading book one then watching the movies. This was a bad idea because I was acutely aware of all the ways the two mediums didn’t align. I got over it though and I too am HP obsessed!!

  2. I have to admit that, for a change, I love them both. The books, as always, are more detailed, and will always be treasured (I re-read them often). However, the individual cast members made the movies great (my husband and I re-watch these regularly).

  3. The books of course! Though I thought the movies did a great job of honoring the spirit of the novels. Except for the fact Ravenclaw will always be silver and blue versus the bronze and blue found in the books. Ugh.

    I think the only “movie” I prefer over the book is Game of Thrones.

  4. I love both. I was late to the game with the books – I fell in love with the movies when they were first released, and then immediately devoured all the books. I was lucky enough to be in London when they released The Half-Blood Prince in July 2005 – I have the British copy! Harry Potter is one of the best things that’s happened to me, and many others.

    1. I was late to the party too. Lucky you loving in London! I just visited there in November and went to the platform 9 3/4 at Kings Cross 😁 I’m heading to Harry Potter World in California in October this year and I can’t waaaait!


  5. I think they’re both fantastic. The books are enthralling and I adore them. The movies, I think if you watch them as a separate thing to the books, are fantastic. It’s hard to appreciate film over novels because you can’t include as much, but I think as a stand-alone series they were fantastic.
