Harry Potter Should Have Died: Controversial Views From the #1 Fan Site is the second book written by the people behind MuggleNet, and is a follow-up to their first book. It was released after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and provides different points of view on certain topics that were still highly talked about after Deathly Hallows was released.

While MuggleNet's first book discussed the possibilities of what would happen in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and used extensive research from the series, this book is a little more loose in nature, especially with the topics discussed. The authors still provide a verdict for each topic like they did in the previous book, but they're not seen as definitive as the last book, and are presented as more of a fun, opinionated look at the series.
