A Double Review for Harry Potter! [Or Something Like That!]

Hey Guys! It’s time again for a double review!

I wanted to do these reviews together because essentially they should be read together. My books today are Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them  by Newt Scamander and Quidditch Through the Ages by Kennilworthy Whisp. So let’s dive back into the wonderful world of Harry Potter! :]

Collectively:

Purchased: Barnes and Noble – $9.99 [a piece]

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars [a piece]

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander

What’s it all about:

Newt takes beasts to the next level in the wonderful book. We are able to learn about the becoming of what are truly beasts and who are beings. This book goes through every known beast across the world and depicts just how dangerous they are and where they can be found.

The Best Parts:

I love the history behind how throughout the wizarding history who was decided to become a beast and who stayed a being. I also liked that with each beast there was a system in check to state their danger. This allows for if we ever encounter these beasts we know just how to handle them.

The Worst Parts:

I would have loved photos of these beasts to have been in this book. A lot of them I had to look up online, but then I remembered that they will be doing a movie for this book to help it’s readers understand these beasts. This movie will be released Nov. 18, 2016.

Quidditch Through the Ages by Kennilworthy Whisp

What’s it all about:

Quidditch! Whisp writes about this history of where Quidditch comes from and then how it has come to pass as todays most famous sport amongst wizards and witches.

The Best Parts:

It is great to see such a long history of Quidditch and read the letters and news articles involving them. Who knew that this sport went back so far! It is also great to read about the differences of back then to now, and the most famous teams throughout the world. I myself have never been to a Quidditch match, but I already feel like I know everything!

The Worst Parts:

Unlike Scamander’s novel there are diagrams in here which make for an easy read. There isn’t anything bad about his novel at all. A little dry, but that’s to go with any book you find in a library.

Final Thoughts:

I am so happy to have finally been able to find these books! I have been hunting for them! I just needed these two to finish my Harry Potter collection and I wasn’t disappointed. You all know how these books expand on the stories that we already know, but that isn’t what I want to talk about. What I really love about these books is that Rowling gives the royalties from these novels to Comic Relief. Comic Relief is an organization that helps those in poverty. For all of us who know the story of how Rowling was living before Harry Potter, this is clearly something that is close to her and am happy to have been able to help by purchasing these novels.
