Harry Potter. Hufflepuff. Hollows. How many of you recognize these names and find yourself coming back to these familiar stories? Most of you have probably heard it before, but never read the books or watched the movies. It all started when Joanne (J.K.) Rowling got the idea of a giant carrying a boy through sheets of rain on a train in 1990. Harry Potter went to Hogwarts when he was 11 years old. Moving forward, Harry saved the wizarding world six different times throughout his school years. But now, Harry Potter books have stopped being written.  Therefore, what do fans do now?
Fans love the detail and complexity in the series.  “You can never stop thinking about it…” seventh-grader, Allie Hawkins, admits.
Here are book series suggestions for Harry Potter lovers:

4. Divergent by Veronica Roth

Warned that she must conceal her status, Tris uncovers a looming war which threatens everyone she loves.
5. Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
In what was once North America, the Capitol of Panem maintains its hold on its 12 districts by forcing them each to select a boy and a girl, called Tributes, to compete in a nationally televised event called the Hunger Games. Every citizen must watch as the youths fight to the death until only one remains. District 12 Tribute Katniss Everdeen has little to rely on, other than her hunting skills and sharp instincts, in an arena where she must weigh survival against love.
6. Hamilton the Musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda
Alexander Hamilton was born in the British West Indies, and later became General George Washington’s assistant. In 1788, as one of America’s Founding Fathers, he convinced New Yorkers to agree to ratify the U.S Constitution.
