Deja Vu Review (9)

So, Brittany from The Book Addict’s Guide has started a new weekly feature called The Deja Vu Review, where we can give mini reviews of books we’ve read before we started blogging (or books we never wrote reviews for).  I think this is a great idea, and although it means I’m participating in five memes a week (I know that is crazy!  But I will still post at least two book reviews a week) I wanted to support Brittany.  Plus, it is fun!

Quidditch Through the Ages by J.K. Rowling
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling
Rating: 4.5/5 stars
Mini-Review: Obviously I have loved the Harry Potter books since I first discovered them years (and years and years) ago when I was a sixteen-year-old sophomore in high school.  At that time only the first three HP books had been published, and although HP was extremely popular, it hadn’t quite become the phenomenon it became not long after.  But when I heard about the two Hogwarts text books were going to be published, I immediately jumped on that bandwagon.  I was still in high school, and although I had my own copies of both Quidditch Through the Ages and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, I never read them.  But finally, last summer I did.  And I am so glad.  I liked Quidditch more than Beasts, but enjoyed both.  What I admired most about these books is Rowling’s sense of humor, which I think was more evident in Quidditch.  If you haven’t read these two yet, I do recommend that you do.  They are a lot of fun, but I would start with Quidditch as there is a bit more of a story.  Beasts is after all very much like an encyclopedia – full of lots os info, but not really a story.

    I have not read fantastical beast and where to find them, but i’m hoping to get the chance soon. If only the book was a whole lot thicker!

  2. I just love both of these books! I wish similar books would come out 🙂

    Awesome! I haven’t read any of the “extra” Harry potter books so I will definitely have tho check these out someday 🙂 I’ve always been a little bit hesitant to read them.

    I didn’t know about these! I love HP, so I will definitely have to check into these two books. I really liked Tales of Beedle the Bard, so I am sure these two HP extras will be great, too. Here is my Deja Vu Review!
