Harry Potter is My Favorite Book
By the time students are accepted in college, they are expected to know how to write essays. Essays are assigned by tutors as a way of evaluating students’ levels of understanding of the course materials and their writing skills.
Writing an essay can be just about any topic, even though students come up with such topics, these topics are generated from class lectures. For example, an essay on Harry Potter as one of my favorite books is a common topic assigned to literature students. The paper entails describing several aspects of the character Harry Potter by JK. Rowling. Students are expected to present what makes the book different from other literature and justify why the book stands out.
How to start
Essays are divided into specific segments; a standard one includes an introduction that describes the purpose of the essay, followed by the essay body paragraphs that support the main idea presented in the introduction. The last segment of an essay is a conclusion, a conclusion restates the major points discussed in the body paragraphs and wraps up the essay to remind the reader about the importance of the topic.
An essay introduction acts as a map that guides readers on what is to be presented in the other paragraphs. A good introduction includes a thesis statement that describes the purpose of the essay and the author’s position on the topic. An introductory example of an essay on Harry Potter as my favorite book can be as follows:

Harry was not loved by his aunt and uncle; however, everything changes when Harry joins Hogwarts school of Witchcraft, and he discovers that he is a wizard. One thing l love about the Harry Potter series is that it covers different themes that appeal to all ages.

Example of body paragraphs
I have always loved reading since my childhood; one of my favorite books is the Harry Potter series. The seven series novel written by J.K. Rowling is a fantasy novel that suitable for all ages. Rowling’s main theme is love and friendship. The seven series describe other themes of friendship, betrayal, and love.
I have read all series from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince as well as Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Once I start reading this series, I usually get stuck because the series is full of mystery, you can never tell what’s going to happen. There is always something weird waiting around the corner.
When reading the seven series novel, Harry Potter, I discovered that the author does not only describe one boy Harry, she makes the whole book alive by describing different characters like the Hogwarts students and teachers. The story also presents magical backgrounds, making it more interesting and adventurous.
The colorful scene in the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone when Harry talks with Ron present existing elements. For example, frogs are made of chocolate and can jump out of the window and jelly beans with different flavors are some of the features that make the story interesting.
I love the way the author used artistic expressions to create a world that seems to be real. Harry Potter is an inspiration to many young children because it encourages them to believe in themselves. The author shows the importance of friendship and love, it’s because of friendship and love that Harry won his enemy Volan-de –Mort. The book has moral stories that teach us honesty.
How to conclude
After presenting all the information describing why Harry Potter is the favorite book, the conclusion is the last section of an essay to persuade the reader. A good conclusion needs to have a lasting impression and leave the audience thinking about the paper. The conclusion reviews all the main points discussed in the body and highlights the key elements that make the book worth reading. The conclusion also calls for action by stating why the book is a must-read.
Example of conclusion
Harry Potter series is a great literature that anyone can read over and over again; right from the beginning up to the end, Rowling made an exciting series. There is no dull moment, whether it the battle with trolls or facing Lord Voldemort all the scenes are always exciting. I would recommend the book to anyone who loves adventure series because it keeps you occupied. You won’t be disappointed because each series is great. If you have not read any of Harry Potter series, you are missing out one of the best series ever written.
I like spend my free time with reading books. They tell me a lot of news about people, their life and their points of view. A book is a friend and also a teacher. Books rouse our interests, amuse us, enrich us mentally and give us new knowledge and a lot of wisdom.
My favourite book is Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe. Robinson Crusoe from York was a man that always wanted to be on the sea. But his father told him that he should stay home and work like his father. But his dream has become a reality when he left his home and he went on the sea with his friends. Near Africa’s coast pirats caught him and send him to jail. Then one man took him away from jail and Robinson had to go fishing and hunt with him. Then he ran away with one boy in a little boat. One day a ship from Spain saved them and they went to Brazil. Then he had a tobacco plantation there. But he wanted to go to Africa and while he was sailing his ship sank and he was alone on the unknown island. He made there a little fortress and then he was going to the wreck and he always brought something what could help him to live on this island. Then he made some fields and he was breeding some goats. One day he saw some cannibals and he had to fight them. He fought them and he became a friend of one cannibal, because he saved his life. Then he saw a ship on the sea so he went to that ship and he was saved. Then he went home, he had children and finally he was rich. He was on that island more than 27 years.
The most important thing for Robinson in this story was that he didn´t stop carrying tools and other things from the shipwreck and he brought on the island by his raft as many things as many he could.
This book is very interesting in that how Robinson coped with his destiny on the island. Defoe describes the nature very lively and the reader can easy imagine all the island and everything that Robinson produced and managed to do. I think that the story is very instructive because it shows us to not to give up until we´re alive and try to survive in any conditions that life gives us.
