Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
By Newt Scamander
I needed a little magic in my day… and this did the trick!
I absolutely loved Eddie Redmayne’s narration as Newt Scamander in the updated version of Fantastic Beasts!! The sound effects were spot on, as well. The accompanying book was wonderful, and I really enjoyed the new ink illustrations by Tomic. There was a lot of subtle humor throughout that kept me entertained!
Nifflers are still my favorite of course!! 😉
Audiobook Performance: ★★★★★
The Hogwarts Collection
By J.K. Rowling
I loved this Pottermore collection! It re-wet my appetite for the magic of the Wizarding World all over again that I will probably re-read the series! (Maybe on audiobook this time?!) I also could read an entire book just on Professor McGonagall! I like the Pottermore website but appreciate that they continue to publish collections too. I highly recommend for HP lovers everywhere to add this to their shelf… maybe one day they’ll publish for the physical collectors??
Harry Potter: A Journey Through A History of Magic
By British Library
I recommend the physical book, it is gorgeous and a quick informative read!
PSA: Be warned the audiobook is HIGHLY DISAPPOINTING!! Ahhh my ears 🙉🙉🙉 (But more power to you if you can make it through the first 45mins on the first 15 pages let alone the entire 11+hours)
