Despite the fact that many of J.K. Rowling’s stories have been out for nearly or over a decade, two of the Harry Potter books are still enchanting young readers.

The Guardian surveyed students from nearly 2,000 schools in the United Kingdom to determine what kids are reading. The list, in no particular order, is as follows:

Glass Houses by Rachel Caine
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Alex Rider: Crocodile Tears by Anthony Horowitz
The Dead Girls Dance by Rachel Caine
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth by Jeff Kinney
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
Mates, Dates, and Sole Survivors by Cathy Hopkins
Survival by Chris Ryan
Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan

We’re happy to see that kids are still discovering Harry Potter. Personally, we wish they had voted for other Harry Potter books like Order of the Phoenix or Deathly Hallows.

Unsurprisingly, all of the books on the list are fiction. Other stand outs include the first Twilight book, which just wrapped its film series, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid, which is a hit amongst elementary school kids.
