J.K. ROWLING AND POTTERMORE EDITORS HAVE RELEASED 3 HARRY POTTER-RELATED EBOOKS!
As a self-proclaimed HUGE Harry Potter Fan, I’m kind of disappointed I haven’t stumbled upon these sooner. As tightly as us fans hold onto the magic of Harry Potter, it seems JK Rowling’s grip is even tighter.
With these three ebooks, Rowling gently guides fans back into her wizarding world through short stories. They contain thoughtful explanations of her plot choices, detailed backstories on characters, items, and traditions, and historical data of her own creation. It seems she just can’t help but return to to Harry.
Have you ever found yourself wondering…
Why McGonagall had the power to bring every Hogwarts statue to life but couldn’t kick Peeves out of the castle?
What on earth could make Greyback want to turn poor little Lupin?
How the sorting hat and the sword of Gryffindor came to be – and how they work?
When Azkaban and the Dementors came to form the wizards’ prison, and what happened to it after the Final Battle?
What made Dolores Umbridge such a witch or was she just born that vicious?
J.K. Rowling touches upon all of these topics and more.
Now, if you’re like me, you see Harry Potter on the TV and automatically switch to that channel. Once in a while you might feel nostalgic and pull one of those 7, thick HP tombs from your bookshelf for a quick reread.
But the anticipation and excitement we had as kids, or as first time reader’s and movie-watcher’s, was dimmed from the lack of new content.
This is why I felt like I was 11 again reading these. Falling so completely and deeply for the well-crafted world Rowling created. Harry Potter fans have always known that she is a master of her craft – to have created a series that people across the globe and of all ages have enjoyed not just once, but have come back to over and over like a welcome friend.
But J.K. Rowling has moved beyond just this feat. There’s something extra to be said about an author who’s thought of absolutely everything. Left no plot hole in her world. No character’s past and motives unexplored. Not even the smallest detail penned without extreme thought and care.
These 3 ebooks are clear evidence of this depth of thought.
So much so that I bought all three ebooks on my Amazon Kindle, read them in an hour or two, and will most certainly read them again!
