Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them | Newt Scamander
Straight from the library at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, a book of magical creatures that no Harry Potter fan should be without! A copy of FANTASTIC BEASTS & WHERE TO FIND THEM resides in almost every wizarding household in the country. Now Muggles too have the chance to discover where the Quintaped lives, what the Puffskein eats, and why it is best not to leave milk out for a Knarl. Proceeds from the sale of this book will go to Comic Relief, which means that the dollars and Galleons you exchange for it will do magic beyond the powers of any wizard. If you feel that this is insufficient reason to part with your money, I can only hope that passing wizards feel more charitable if they see you being attacked by a Manticore. -- Albus Dumbledore

This is the best addendum to the Harry Potter series! J.K. Rowling is ridiculously talented and this is so incredibly creative. I loved learning about all of the magical creatures. The references to other “magical texts“ were great additions. I am constantly amazed at how detailed this world has become.

I read this on Sept 1 and gave it 3 ⭐️. I bought this for similar reasons as I bought Quidditch Through the Ages. While this was fun, it was an A-Z guide, which was dull at points.

LibrarianRyan These were originally written and released as a fundraiser for Comic Relief in the UK. 1mo
Aaronlisa I totally understand that and it‘s why I bought it, I just found Quidditch Through the Ages was the better read. I like the fact that even if you aren‘t in the UK, money raised from these books go to charity. 1mo

Time to brush up on some knowledge before arrival!! I managed to get my hands on a Wizard‘s copy of Scamander‘s book, despite coming from a Muggle home.

The moving illustrations make this read so much more magical! ✨

This was a short and concise book on the beasts of the Wizarding World. With Eddie Redmayne‘s narration, this compendium came alive as I made my way through the vast number of creatures. Light-hearted and quick; a perfect book to alleviate the heavy fantasy I‘ve been reading recently.

I loved this book. The details were so good you can picture every fantastic beast. Also the audio book has Newt Scamander narrating it which makes it that much better 😃

This was a cute read but I probably prefer it if I were going through the books for the first time and not years after the fact. I listened to it on audiobook which was great but I think it's better read in a physical format.

To my person for #springathogwarts exchange. I decided to do a collage of the books I need to complete my collection in current.
I want the second book in hardback to match the first book I have in hardback. With the yellow and black. I know they're mixing it up. First was black, this is yellow etc

Listened to this one on Sunday at work. Super quick and easy listen at only about 2 hrs. Didn't hurt that it was narrated by Newt Scamander himself, Eddie Redmayne. It was fun listening to the list of Fantastic Beasts in alphabetical order, learning where they are native to, and their behaviors. Definitely a 5🌟 pick. #NewtScamander #JKRowling #FantasticBeast #Hogwarts

Loved revisiting this especially as it was the audiobook version. Even you lose seeing the notes that Harry and Ron write in the book it is made up in the sound effects.

Even though it was nice listening to Eddie Redmayne it doesn't make me want to watch the films as these books were made to make money for a good cause and to compliment the Harry Potter series.

I disappeared for a few days without interning to. I managed to finish The Stand and was so burnt out by it that I just stopped all of my reading.

I am going to try to get back into my #NEWTsreadathon2018 list and see if I can get back to finishing a few books each week.

I seriously hate books that cause me to go into reading slumps. 😑

Aseleener So, was The Stand a "pan" for you? Are you glad you read it or do you wish you had not even bothered? 14mo
InLibrisVeritas @Aseleener It was definitely a 👎🏻 I wish I hadn't bothered with it. I read it for #losersclub and while I wasn't required to finish it, I was hoping that it would get better for me as some point. It didn't.😅 14mo

Eeek so I just heard about #NEWTSreadathon2018 by Book Roast on YouTube - it's a #readingchallenge themed around Hogwarts subjects - and I'm a huge Harry Potter nerd so I drew myself a spread for OWLS (which I missed) and NEWTS. I am not sure how far I'll go between my backpackEurope and botmbacklog challenge but I figured I could continue this after. Is anyone else doing it? Here's my OWLS spread (all spreads are on instagram.com/bookandcat_ig ).

A big Thank you to @whippoorwill815 for such a wonderful #HarryPotterSwap package! I love every bit of it! The aroma of the coffee sent my little one running in asking "is that coffee.

And I am glad you found a new book to add to your list while you where at it :)
