Wrap Up: June 2017

1. Fantastic Beast and Where to Find them Screenplay by J.K. Rowling

This read exactly as the movie so I thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved the movie and this was no different. If you have already seen Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie and are not interested in reading the screenplay, I would recommend flipping through the pages. At the beginning of each scene there is an image/drawing of the different creatures. And while you may have seen the beasts on the big screen the drawings are so intricate and beautiful it is well worth the peruse. 

Rating: 5/5

2. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Askaban by J.K. Rowling

When I was much younger this was my favourite book of the series and I am so happy to say after not having read this book in so long I still love it. This book packs in a lot of emotion. While some friendships falter it brings a sense of reality to the story because no one perfect. And I always cry at the end when they (you know who but in case you don't) reunite. This book is a good built up of what's to come.

Rating: 5/5

3. Quidditch Through the Ages by Kennilworthy Whisp aka J.K. Rowling

I thought reading this before the Goblet of Fire was the perfect time because the beginning of the novel is set at the Quidditch World Cup. Quidditch Through the Ages explores the evolution of Quidditch. Topics include the development of the 3 balls, evolution of broomsticks and also different teams around the world. The stories were interesting but it wasn't as good as Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them (from the Hogwarts Library).

Rating: 4/5

4. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling

So I'm just going to put it out there, I finished this on the 2 June. But I'm including in June's wrap up because I injured my eye to it was real struggle to get through this but I did. I'm going to take a little break from reading because it is really difficult to see and takes an immense amount of concentration.

But aside from the visual difficulties I had reading, I loved it. This book will keep you on your toes till the end. It's not so action packed that it feels rushed as there were moments which focused on building different characters. J.K Rowling writes the world of Hogwarts so well. From the moving pictures to Peeves the Poltergeist, this series has something for everyone. 

Before this book we don't see much in terms of politics however in this novels we start to peel the layers. It makes for a very dynamic read. The only downside, is that this book made me realise how much I hate the movie.

Rating: 5/5
