The first 4 were awesome!

Book 1: 5 stars
Book 2: 5 stars
Book 3: 4 stars
Book 4 3 1/2 stars
Book 5: 2 sats
Book 6: 3 1/2 stars
Book 7: ???

But they slowly began to decline in awesomeness but they are climbing back up the ladder!

I liked the first and seocond ones beacuase they were set in a strange and wired world to the main carahter(Harry) but ordinary to everyone else.
The rest of the books loose that eg Harry breaks his bowl he dosent curse he simpliy says some magic words and it comes back together.

i dont like the 6th and 5th because they have no mision like eg:a snake inhabiting the school or a werewolf and a godfather found.

On the contrary, the ambiguity is meant to be there, and it makes it better. And the 5th and 6th books do have a main plot, a "mission" as you put it: The goal of the fifth is varied, but revovles around stopping Voldemort from gaining more power, while the sixth is about resitisting Voldemort now that he has gained even more power, e.g.: through finding the horcruxes. Just becuase you can't understand the purpose of the book doesn't mean it's bad.

And the point of book 3 was not finding out Harry has a Godfather, nor was book 2 meant to show that Hogwarts had a Basalisk living in it: they were meant to develope the plot and setting more, while also showing Voldemort is returning to power.
