Quidditch Through the Ages (Audiobook) by JK Rowling

5 Nuts Every time Pottermore releases one of the audios I am first in line to request them from Overdrive. It doesn’t matter that I’ve read them a million times, these are totally worth listening to. For several reasons. First, the actors they choose to narrate are always top notch. But that’s not the main […]

Quidditch Through the Ages by JK Rowling

4 Nuts It’s very strange to sit down with a book and realize you a reading a fake textbook from a made up history for a world that does not exist but you wish with all of your heart that it did. That is the entire reading experience of QUIDDITCH THROUGH THE AGES. So even […]

Tales of Beedle the Bard by JK Rowling

3 Nuts THE TALES OF BEEDLE THE BARD is the last book in the Hogwarts Library set (seriously, Rowling, where is my Hogwarts, A History already?) This is also the last Harry Potter review for the month of September, an important month in Potter canon. So here we are, our last Potter review (for now). […]

Harry Potter and the Deathly..

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling (Read by Jim Dale)

4 Nuts HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS is a big deal. Not so much because of its content but because of what is represented. Deathly Hallows was the culmination of years of work for JK Rowling and the majority of my childhood as a young reader. It was the end of the series that […]

Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince by JK Rowling (Read by Jim Dale)

Of the 7 books in the Harry Potter series (I still contend that Cursed Child isn’t a Harry Potter book), HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE is my favorite. Now, maybe it’s not the best narratively (that’s probably PRISONER OF AZKABAN) but it’s the best to me. And why is that? I can explain in […]

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by JK Rowling (Read by Jim Dale)

3.5 Nuts What? I’m only giving Order of the Phoenix a 3.5? HOOOOOW? I know, sacrilege right? But first let me point out that 3.5 isn’t that bad and I have plenty of reasons. When I first read this book as a kid, I think I was in middle school, it was like the pinnacle […]

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by John Tiffany, Jack Thorn, and JK Rowling

In honor of September the 1st, the day when Hogwarts students board the train to school, we are going to talk about HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD PARTS 1 & 2. So let me begin with this: this post is part review, part discussion, and part rant. I have sat on these feelings, listening […]

Fantastic Beasts and Where t..

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander (JK Rowling)

4.5 Nuts This is going to be a strange review. I have read/listened to several versions of this book at this point. Therefore I will comment on them in order. First the original version as originally released, then the updated parts, and finally the narrated version by actor Eddie Redmayne. Cool? Good. I got my […]

Harry, A History by Melissa ..

Harry, A History by Melissa Anelli

4.5 Nuts Back in the early 2000s everything was Harry Potter. For me it was my world. I wrote fanfiction, wrote on message boards, listened to podcasts and had every Potter related book I could find. One of the podcasts I listened to was called PotterCast and one of its hosts announces that she, Melissa […]
