Harry Potter is better because it is more adventurous and very suspenseful and fun 2 read. There are more books/movies of it then Twilight and the movies are awesome{Used awesome twice because HP is so Awesome (3x)}

I've never seen a Harry Potter movie or a Twilight movie. But if I had to chose, I'd pick Harry Potter. Don't believe in sparkling vampires...

there isnt even a good reason for twilight to be better. I mean really. i have read and watched both the books and movies of both series. and Twilight is not even close to as good as Harry potter.

I am a Twilight fan, but if it came down to it, I would choose Harry Potter every time.

Harry Potter all the way.
I read only the first book of Twilight and it just didnt do it for me. i think the Twilight movie (I also have only seen the first one, and slept mid-way through the second) are better than the books actually.

Harry Potter is clever and creative. It's not a love story. it involves everything.

Okay, I can understand why you would say this with Twilight, but Harry Potter? Come on, you've got to give Harry Potter some props! It's a good read :D

Harry Potter is a series of seven fantasy novels written by British author J. K. Rowling. The books chronicle the adventures of the eponymous adolescent wizard Harry Potter, together with Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, his friends from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Twilight is a young-adult vampire-romance novel written by author Stephenie Meyer. It was originally published in 2005 in hardback. It is the first book of the Twilight series, and introduces seventeen-year-old Isabella "Bella" Swan who moves from Phoenix, Arizona, to Forks, Washington, and finds her life in danger when she falls in love with a vampire, Edward Cullen.

I believe that Stephen King said it best: "Harry Potter is all about confronting fears, finding inner strength, and doing what is right in the face of adversity. Twilight is about how important it is to have a boyfriend."

I have to agree with him. I am a Twilight fan but I am bigger Harry Potter fan. Twilight got on my nerves at times since since Bella always had to be saved or coached into saving herself. Harry Potter sacrificed himself in every book. That is a great example that I want my children to love and understand.

Another positive of HP - all of the books are complete stand alone books (and I love how the books age/get darker with the characters). I do not feel that way about Twilight. I especially think that Breaking Dawn is two books and should have been split just like the movies. Normally, I am not a movie over book fan but I believe that the Twilight movies (for the most part) are better than the books. They are more condensed and add some much needed action to the series!

Yeah, it's pretty hard to compare Harry Potter to anything. Its massive appeal and influence (heck, they built a theme park for it) to all makes it a bit out of Twilight's league. If you want to compare Twilight to something, Fifty Shades is a much better competitor. They both go after the same theme from completely different sides of the spectrum. Also, they've both struck heavily upon one single group and thus share a sphere of influence. Like watching a DC comic fan go head-to-head with a Marvel fan, a Twilight vs. Fifty Shades fight could get ugly I think.
