Hogwarts is teeming with secrets.
Now THAT’S a Potter book–at last! Since I am a Potterhead, it is with a little sadness that I’ve already finished the short stories series released by Pottermore. I was actually holding it off for the longest time but oh well.
I enjoyed this very much because I have always loved the air of mystery that Hogwarts imposes right from the start of reading this series. That’s also the reason why my favorite movie of the series is the Sorcerer’s Stone because there was such a massive world-building effort. To get a glimpse on the mysteries and to have answers on the questions I’ve been itching to ask in so long about Hogwarts was so satisfying. Additionally, I loved the approach of this book because instead of characters, the magical things of the wizarding world was cast into the limelight. This has the cohesiveness I was looking for. Although I might say, I’m very confused with Cursed Child all the more with this time-turner section tackled. I’m just SO confused. Blasted Cursed Child.
Of the three short stories releases, I enjoyed this the most–this is a very nice close to the Pottermore Presents series. Although, I’m quite sure there will be more because, erm, Rowling hello?
Do I recommend it? Yuppsss! This is perfect for all the Potterheads out there! Great, now I want to reread Harry Potter again.
