    14 Reasons Why "Harry Potter" Will Always Be Superior To "Twilight"

    Harry > Bella. I said what I said.

    Hi there! Huge Potterhead here. Let me start out by saying I have nothing against Twilight. I even had a cardboard cutout of Edward Cullen in my room in middle school, but we don't need to dwell on that.

    Now, I believe there's more than enough room in our hearts for us to love both Harry Potter and Twilight. But I CANNOT STAND when someone tries to tell me that the Twilight saga is the better series. So let's settle this once and for all by taking a look at all the reasons why Harry Potter is superior:

    1. The friendships are SO MUCH stronger.

    2. The world-building is freaking incredible.
