too many to mention.

Do not put statements in the negative form.
And don't start sentences with a conjunction.
If you reread your work, you will find on rereading that a
great deal of repetition can be avoided by rereading and editing.
Never use a long word when a diminutive one will do.
Unqualified superlatives are the worst of all.
De-accession euphemisms.
If any word is improper at the end of a sentence, a linking verb is.
Avoid trendy locutions that sound flaky.
Last, but not least, avoid cliches like the plague.
- William Safire, "Great Rules of Writing"

Actually, I love the books way better than the Harry Potter movies, but they don't disappoint me because I never expect the movies to be better than the books, and with the movies I can explore the whole Harry Potter world in an easier way from another person's perspective.
