These Illustrated edition’s are my first time ever reading the Harry Potter series, and I am so happy to be reading the series through these editions. The illustrations add so much magic, liveliness, intrigue, and fun to the story of Harry Potter. I absolutely love these editions and I can’t wait to turn each page to see the story progress as well as see the beautiful illustrations. I can’t recommend these books enough especially if you have never read Harry Potter, this is the perfect way to start and truly be immersed in the world of Hogwarts and the magic that each page brings. J. K Rowling’s writing is so much fun to read and it truly keeps you captivated in the plot, settings and characters. The writing is also the kind that keeps you from not wanting to stop as the book is so well written and portrayed through words. This is quickly becoming one of my top two series I have ever read. 100% recommend getting the illustrated edition as you will fall in live from the first page.
