If you’re a loyal fan of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, you’ve probably gotten into a duel or two over which novel is best in the series. While each individual has their opinion, we got an inside look at the most Googled Harry Potter book by state—and the results might make you Moody, pun intended.

Furniture brand Joybird released a study that showed the highest searched Harry Potter title in each state throughout the U.S., resulting in a visually satisfying map splashed with iconic cover illustrations. There is not unanimous favoritism across America, and each book is represented in some way, shape, or form.

Starting on the Northeast, it looks like the region is mostly on the same page, minus a few outliers. Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania are all for “Deathly Hallows,” but Vermont and Delaware are all about “Prisoner of Azkaban.” Maine is standing all on their lonesome up North with “Order of the Phoenix” taking the prize.

The Midwest’s ratio is similar to the Northeast’s pattern, just with different outlier novels. Once again, “Deathly Hallows” takes up the majority of states with eight searching the seventh book most. However, “Chamber of Secrets” makes its listing debut in Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Last but certainly not least, South Dakota is fan-favoriting “Goblet of Fire.”

Moving to the South, we see more diversity across the 16 states, although “Deathly Hallows” once again is the clear winner with eleven states. Delaware and Georgia are team “Prisoner of Azkaban,” Mississippi takes “Order of the Phoenix,” Tennessee is “Sorcerer’s Stone,” and West Virginia is the second and last “Goblet of Fire” state.

Last but not least, we have the West! Out of all the regions, this one is most diverse in its most-searched titles. Only Arizona, California, Idaho, New Mexico, and Oregon have “Deathly Hallows,” while Alaska and Wyoming are the only two states throughout the country that took “Half-Blood Prince.” Hawaii and Nevada love “Chamber of Secrets,” and Montana and Washington side with “Order of the Phoenix.” The outliers include Colorado’s “Prisoner of Azkaban” and Utah’s “Sorcerer’s Stone.”

It’s safe to say that “Deathly Hallows” takes the country’s overall lead of most-searched Harry Potter book with 28 states, taking a landslide lead with “Chamber of Secrets” coming in at 7. What are your thoughts on your state’s popular opinion?
