Top 5 favorite Harry Potter book scenes

Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone

1-Mirror of Erised- I love the scene between Dumbledore and Harry when Harry returns to the Mirror of Erised a third time. It’s such a poignant scene! The whole scene is amazing but I really LOVE when Dumbledore says to Harry,

‘It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that.’

I tend to do this more frequently than I care to admit. I’m always thinking about what I want to do “someday”, (I talked about that in a previous post) instead of working for something and making it happen! So this scene really strikes a chord with me.

2-Through the trapdoor- One of my favorite book scenes is when Hermione rushes at Harry and hugs him towards the end of this chapter. This is in Snape’s potions/poison room after going through the trapdoor. Then afterward Hermion hugs Harry she says,

‘Books! And cleverness! There are more important things-friendship and bravery- oh Harry-be careful!’

Not only is this scene super funny because Harry reaction to be hugged is super funny to me! But even with all the craziness that happening (Hermione thinks Harry is going to DIE!) Hermione still realizes what’s important. This is a lesson that we can take with us. To always remember what is important and not to get caught up in the little things!

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

3-The rogue bludger-Don’t you just love Dobby?! I certainly do! In this scene Harry find out that Dobby is responsible for the budger that hit him in the Quidditch game. Which resulted in Harry loosing the bones in his arm. Harry is asking him why he is trying to kill him.

‘Not kill you, sir, never kill you!’

I think this scene is so cute and funny! I just love how Dobby is still is trying to help, even in his misguided way.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

4-The Maurader’s Map-This scene is when the Weasley twins are giving the Maurader’s map to Harry and they are describing how to make the map work.

‘I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.’

I equate this scene, in particular this line, with all things Harry Potter.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

5-Percy and Padfoot-This scene is when Harry, Ron, and Hermione are talking with Sirius when his head appears in the fireplace. They are talking about Professor Umbridge could be a death eater. How she is foul enough to be one and Sirius responds with,

‘Yes, but the world isn’t split into good people and death eaters.’

This is important to remember that the world isn’t just black and white. People aren’t all good or all bad.

Will you look at that! I managed to narrow it down to only FIVE scenes! What do you think? Are any of these your favorite Harry Potter book scenes?
