Books 2 Door – Harry Potter Collection -Review

As a child I couldn’t get in to the Harry Potter books, I didn’t like the movies and I really didn’t understand the hype. As an adult I absolute love the movies (Me and Luke finally watched them all 3 years ago) and completely understood why HP was such a loved franchise. Since then we’ve both felt the need to read the books – especially as I think they are something Ellie will enjoy as she gets older too.

We recently got in touch with Books2Door who sent us a boxed set with all seven of the multi-award winning Harry Potter books in paperback. This release of Harry Potter Complete Collection contains all the Harry Potter books by J.K Rowling featuring beautifully illustrated cover art by Johnny Duddle (the author behind the amazing Gigantosaurus books) and comes in a sturdy box to keep the books in.

The book titles included are:
  • Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix
  • Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
  • Harry Potter are the Deathly Hallows

The Harry Potter series is recommended for children aged 9 and over. They were originally aimed at primary aged children but due to the success of the first few they were made darker and more adult orientated as the series went on. The first few books would be great to read aloud together but we will wait for Ellie to be a little bit older before introducing her to them – I want to read them myself first anyway!

I’m very excited to dive into the magical world of Hogwarts and get deeper into the characters and all the bits the movies miss out.

Books2Door has over 7000 reviews on Trustpilot and have amazing offers and deals! You won’t be disappointed in the range of books they offer – the bargain section is pretty stocked up too!

Disclosure – We were gifted the Harry Potter Complete Collection 7 Book Set to review by Books2Door however as always all thoughts, opinions and photographs are my own.

Books2Door – Review

Does anyone else’s child love stories? Whenever we are out and she sees a book she has to have one and Mummy can’t say no because I love that she loves books but WOW! Aren’t they expensive!
I’m so glad to introduce Books2Door who offer a fantastic range of babies, children and young adult books in one place! We recently received our collaboration book order and I couldn’t wait to share with you what we got!

As you probably know Ellie is an amazing storyteller, she is dramatic and full of expression; this has developed through her love of stories. I have been trying to move her on when we are reading together and pointing out simple CVC words to sound out and blend. She’s been trying really hard with this during lockdown so I knew I wanted books that would help her develop her reading so decided to look in the 5-7 years age range.

Ten Little Bookworms – £1.00



Ellie loves the “ten little” stories and we have used them to teach her subtraction and number skills too. When i saw this little book I knew she’d love it. It’s from the 2019 World Book Day range so isn’t a long story, perfect for filling time between activities or routine. This is the story of ten little borkworms and page by page one has gone astray. Ellie loved the illustrations and remembering how many bookworms would be left.

Where’s The Unicorn: a Magical Search and Find book – £4.49


These search and find books keep Ellie entertained for hours so when I saw there was a unicorn search and find book I got a little bit excited. Everyone loves unicorns right? Ellie definitely does. In this “where’s wally” style book there are 7 different coloured unicorns to find in 17 different locations. There is so much to find that children of all ages will love this book!

Ladybird Tales My Once Upon A Time Library – £27.99

I have always wanted Ellie to enjoy the classics as well as the many amazing modern-day stories and retells in the world. This 24 book set is complete with all the classics; Beauty and The Beast, Cinderella, The Three Little Pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk and so many more! Did you know Ladybird has been publishing fairy tales for over 45 years? They are the perfect addition to any child’s bookshelf or library! I can’t wait to read these to Ellie and eventually listen to her read them herself.

Books2Door has over 7000 reviews on Trustpilot and currently have free shipping for orders over £30! You won’t be disappointed in the range of books they offer – the bargain section is pretty stocked up too!
