Are you disenfranchised by JK Rowling’s violent anti-trans tweets and you respect human rights above all? Are you a reader who got into reading because of Harry Potter and, now that she has been deemed highly problematic, want to expand your reading into new books, but want the same formula? Here’s some books I recommend as books that feel like Harry Potter in various ways and can get you further into reading. The main key is to make sure you’re being an ally to trans people and to all people who have been harmed by JK Rowling’s words, such as Jewish people and Indigenous people.
