10 Books For Adults That Are Just As Magical As The Harry Potter Series



It seems impossible to think that anything could compare, but if you look hard enough, there are books we can read as adults that have some of the same elements as our beloved Harry Potter. here is a small list of them.


The Name of the Wind By Patrick Rothfuss

The Name of the Windis the story of a young man who grows up to be the most famous wizard the world has ever known. This concept might sound just the tiniest bit familiar to Potter fans. Kvothe is an orphan who braves his crime-ridden city and enters an incredible school of magic. Rothfuss creates a grittier, more adult version a magic school which leaves room for a whole new, world-encompassing series for fantasy lovers to enter. Read More





The Magicians By Lev Grossman

This one is probably on every "Books Like Harry Potter" list around, but it's for good reason. The first in a series abut a young wizard finding his place in the magical world gives readers everywhere a taste of what they've been missing since Deathly Hallows. And besides, it is an amazing reminder of the power of a book to take you away completely. Read More


The Goldfinch By Donna Tartt

No magic here, I know, but that's not to say it isn't a magical reading experience. Donna Tartt's Pulitzer-Prize-winning novel is the story of Theo Decker, who loses his mom at a young age and is estranged from his father. What gets him through a terrible time in his life is the friendship he forges with another seemingly lost kid, Boris. Harry Potter is about magic, wizards, and everything in between, but it is ultimately a story about the power of friendship. So if you're missing the dynamic between Harry, Ron and Hermione, give this one a try. (Oh, and the length will definitely remind you of Harry Potter, too.) Read More


Ender's Game By Orson Scott Card

Ender's Gameis about a generations-long war, and one young boy who will come through and try to save the planet he calls home. Sounding a little familiar? Fans of Harry Potter will love the "chosen one" aspect of Ender's Game, and the epic battles will be reminiscent of several showdowns from the fantasy series. Read More



Neverwhere By Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman has the same amazing ability as J.K. Rowling to make readers believe the most impossible things, and with that, they could step into the pages and be a part of those impossibilities themselves. Richard Mayhew leaves his humdrum life behind and enters a world he never could have imagined. It's kind of what would happen if a muggle was thrown into the wizarding world with zero warning or explanation. With every turn of the page, Neverwhere draws readers further and further in, and you will lose yourself in this book like you haven't since the end of Potter! Read More



The Queen of the Tearling By Erika Johansen

Emma Watson is starring in the movie adaptation of this book, so we basically all have to read it eventually, right? Right. BUT. There's so much more to it than that! The Queen and the Tearlingis about a princess who, in order to claim her throne, must defeat a sorceress in a battle between light and dark powers. Have we finally received the female answer to Harry Potter? It definitely could be. Read More

Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell By Susanna Clarke

It's 1806, and the majority of people no longer believe in magic anymore. So naturally, when local recluse Mr. Norrell reveals his own magical powers, he becomes a celebrity overnight. But soon, another, much younger wizard comes forward: the enigmatic Jonathan Strange, who becomes a student of Mr. Norrell. But before long, Jonathan's interest in the darker sides of magic strains their relationship, and threatens everything around them. An immense tale of a battle between dark and light magic, Harry Potter fans will simply devour this. Read More


The Eyre Affair By Jasper Fforde

It's 1985 in Great Britain — but not the Britain we all know and love. Cloning and time travel are definitely A Thing, and nothing is taken more seriously than literature. It seems like an amazing time to be alive, right? Wrong! London is basically a police state where anyone can get lost inside the world of a book or poem, and characters themselves can escape from the pages of their books to wreak havoc on the world. It's a magical page-turner that will capture the attention and hearts of Potter readers everywhere. Read More

Cloud Atlas By David Mitchell

David Mitchell's writing is as immersive and mind-boggling as Rowling's. In Cloud Atlas, Mitchell weaves together the stories of several people at once, and in doing so crosses countries, generations, and worlds in a way that seems almost impossible. As we read the Harry Potter series, we kept wondering, "How did she do it?" and readers are pretty much guaranteed to have similar mind boggled reaction to Cloud Atlas, in the best way possible. Read More
