“Anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.”
– Ginny Weasley
Ginny Weasley is amazing.
She’s kind, she’s caring, she’s bold, she’s beautiful, she’s brave, and she’ll cast a mad bat-bogey hex on you before you could even say “quidditch” if you ever hurt someone she cared about.
Because of her strong personality and wild accomplishments…I decided to put together 12 books Ginny Weasley would read. IF she was a muggle of course!
The books on this list range from inspirational non fiction to heartwrenching fiction.
