Pottermore Presents: 3 Novellas From Queen J.K. Rowling
Rejoice Potterheads! Pottermore and our Queen Rowling is releasing 3 novellas on September 6 from the wizarding world of Harry Potter. (I just found out okay?) Unfortunately, it's only available in digital format (for now, fingers crossed on print copies).
According to the description:
Pottermore Presents is a collection of J.K. Rowling’s writing: short reads originally featured on pottermore.com. These eBooks, with writing curated by Pottermore, will take you beyond the Harry Potter stories as J.K. Rowling reveals her inspiration, intricate details of characters’ lives and surprises from the wizarding world.So it's just short stories, but hopefully, it will be enough to fill our need for more stories from our beloved magical fantasy world.
I'll put buy links after each blurb which you can use to pre-order/purchase a digital copy. Using these links will help me earn a small commission. ;)
Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists
(Pottermore Presents #1)
No Muggle Prime Minister has ever set foot in the Ministry of Magic, for reasons most succinctly summed up by ex-Minister Dugald McPhail (term of office 1858-1865): “their puir wee braines couldnae cope wi’ it.”’ – J.K. Rowling
These stories of power, politics and pesky poltergeists give you a glimpse into the darker side of the wizarding world, revealing the ruthless roots of Professor Umbridge, the lowdown on the Ministers for Magic and the history of the wizarding prison Azkaban. You will also delve deeper into Horace Slughorn’s early years as Potions master at Hogwarts - and his acquaintance with one Tom Marvolo Riddle.
Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies
(Pottermore Presents #2)
‘Minerva was the Roman goddess of warriors and wisdom. William McGonagall is celebrated as the worst poet in British history. There was something irresistible to me about his name, and the idea that such a brilliant woman might be a distant relative of the buffoonish McGonagall.’ – J.K. Rowling
These stories of heroism, hardship and dangerous hobbies profile two of the Harry Potter stories’ most courageous and iconic characters: Minerva McGonagall and Remus Lupin. J.K. Rowling also gives us a peek behind the closed curtains of Sybill Trelawney’s life, and you’ll encounter the reckless, magical-beast-loving Silvanus Kettleburn along the way.
Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide
(Pottermore Presents #3)
‘The Ministry of Magic felt strongly, however, that to construct an additional wizarding station in the middle of London would stretch even the Muggles’ notorious determination not to notice magic when it was exploding in front of their faces.’ – J.K. Rowling
Hogwarts An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide takes you on a journey to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You’ll venture into the Hogwarts grounds, become better acquainted with its more permanent residents, learn more about lessons and discover secrets of the castle . . . all at the turn of a page.
I pre-ordered my own copy and will hopefully receive it on my Kindle by the time I wake up. Expect a review soon.
