Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - J.K. Rowling

What an ending!
I love how you get to the end and it gives you a glimpse into the future. All those questions you have raised, get some closure and you are left to imagine what it's like from there-on-out. I like that. Most books leave you wondering.
Plus the story all comes together. Yeah it leaves the future open for more, but the 7 book tale truly comes to an end.
I also don't hate Snape anymore. I want to but I can't, not now....
Yup, even though they are decent size books, or you think you know the story from seeing the films, you need to read them. I'm so glad I did, and yeah, I'll probably read The Cursed Child and the Fantastic Beasts books.
Now to watch the film and pray they do my favorite part in the book justice. Since they've omitted the house elves from the other films, I won't hold my breath. Just know Dobby is still my favorite character.

Second Time Around is Even Better!
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - J.K. Rowling,Mary GrandPré

Read this series 7 years ago.  This time I'm listening on Audible.  The whole fam loves this story, and it was really fun listening to the last couple hours of the first book while in the car yesterday.  I thought my teenagers were busying themselves with something else in the back seat when my 13-year-old said, "Please turn that up, Mom."  Love HP!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Hogwarts Library Book) - Newt Scamander,J.K. Rowling

A fabulously fun A to Z of the beasts in the Harry Potter world.  The book starts with an introduction by Newt Scamander (the nominal author) that discusses the purpose of the book, along with a brief history of muggle/wizard/beat relations and the evolution of which magical creatures is deemed a beast and which beings.  Each beast's entry includes a danger rating, it's primary locals, and a description.

 

Total catnip for a Harry Potter fan; there are a few illustrations, but generally the author and publisher missed a golden opportunity to make this book amazing.  Hopefully a fully illustrated edition will appear sometime in the future.

Back with Harry for another round!
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - J.K. Rowling,Mary GrandPré

What an absolute pleasure to be back in the world of Harry Potter!  When I finished the series 7 years ago the first thing I said was that I would like to read it again some day.  And now a member of my book club picked The Sorcerer's Stone for our November read!  Thrilled!  And this time I am listening on Audible...  and loving every second of it!
