I’m about 2/3 of the way done with the audiobook of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix but I’m trying to make my Potter immersion 100% before the end of CBR9 so I’ve also added the novellas JK Rowling wrote like this and the Tales of Beedle the Bard (which I’ll hit closer to Deathly Hallows) to my TBR.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, cowritten by Ms. Rowling and Newt Scamander, is a brief encyclopedia of the magical creatures that inhabit the Wizarding world but hide from Muggle eyes. This is Harry’s copy of the text book so it is has a few doodles and sarcastic comments in the margins.
It’s very cute and once again goes to prove how in depth Rowling’s world was in her mind. Besides the introduction from Albus Dumbledore and the first chapter that discussed the evolution of the Ministry of Magic’s involvement in Magical Creatures as well as the difference between beasts & beings she probably had all of this written out on the yarn wall that I’m sure she had all over her house during the Potter years.
All in all, a cute read for a Potter completist.
