Harry Potter turns 20 years old – Yes, you’re old now!
Harry Potter has been in existence for 20 years. Over the span of 7 books, J.K. Rowling enchanted readers across the world and across ages. However, 7 books and 8 movies was just not enough for some fans. The Harry Potter universe sparked the imagination of many of these fans that helps us answer a lot of the ‘what if’ questions in the form of fan-fiction. We’ve curated a list of the best fan-fiction that you need to check out now and just like J.K. Rowling, we’ve stuck to just 7.
