deathly hallows of course, but you can’t read one book before the other, you won’t follow it’s best to read them in the right order

I really love them all too! I couldn’t recommend that someone read one of the middle books (or last book!) without reading the very first one. They would be missing out on a lot of the story and would be lost!

Going to be tough to keep it less than 300 words – Fav is PoA and DH but gotta read the first (PS) one first.

Guess That Book

"We were all in the D.A. together," said Neville quietly. "It was all supposed to be about fighting You-Know-Who, wasn't it? And this is the first chance we've had to do something real -- or was that all just a game or something?"
