Needed a light break from The Exorcist, and Quidditch Through the Ages was on Kindle Unlimited 🙌🏻 I love this library check out page in the beginning 😍
Even though I‘m a huge Harry Potter fan, this history of Quidditch didn‘t especially thrill me. Of course, I was reading a book about Quidditch for the reading challenge prompt, “read a book involving sports.” That probably says more about me than it says about this book.
The depth and breadth of Rowling‘s worldbuilding continues to astound me. If the Quidditch scenes were your favorite parts of the Harry Potter books, then this book is for you!
Today we had my son's birthday party. He wanted a Harry Potter theme, so we put up Hogwarts banners, I made Golden Snitches and we had a magical treasure hunt. I'm dead tired right now, but the children loved it!
Listening to this one entirely because it is read by Andrew Lincoln. It‘s such a delight to hear “Rick Grimes” speaking in his natural British accent (as well as in several additional put-upon accents and voices) about witches and wizards and magic. I love it when my fandoms collide!!!
Hi @ameliask8 , sorry I am a day late for opening !
Thank you so much for this awesome package! The chocolate frogs did survive the trip! Of course I will be devouring them all soon 😜 I‘m excited for my Ravenclaw notecards and the books of course!
And I can‘t believe you made the tote and book sleeve, I love them!! It‘s my first book sleeve actually and I‘m so excited to use it! Thank you!!! 💙
See my full review on my blog (see bio).
For all you lovers of Harry Potter, you will love this!! The wizards somehow decided to share this book with us, muggles.
A book about the history of Quidditch, the famous teams and players, all the exiting moments and mysterious injuries :D
I listened to the audio book, and it came with special edition with the 2014 World Cup, reported by Ginny Potter and Rita Skeeter! Loved it! 5⭐
After 26 days, baby Jace is finally home from the hospital!!! 💙💙💙 He is currently chilling in his DockATot from the lovely @MiyakoBunny while we listen to Quidditch Through the Ages on audiobook. We are so grateful to be home! 💙🤗💙
Happy Weasley Twins bday! 🎂
Also super spoiled by @Mommamanzi !! I felt like Harry Potter on his 1st Christmas at Hogwarts, only more spoiled! 💖💖 The socks! And the stickers, tea strainer, postcards, journal, Bath salts, tea, candle, & candies are all amazing-- I can't believe you found all that!! And the shirt & book & stuffy for buggy are perfect 😍😍 And you filled in my set and got me the quidditch & cinematography books! THANK YOU! 👇🏽
I managed to squeeze one more book in for March. A quick read on the history of Quidditch. Humorous and informative. 😉
Sounds right to me, unless of course you're participating in #LMPBC 😀
Sooooo....do I buy this now or not?! 🤔I love Andrew Lincoln and he has a wonderful voice, plus most of the proceeds go to charity. And it has excellent reviews.
Ok, I've talked myself into it! 😅😅😅
I have read Quidditch Through the Ages a few times over the years since the book was first released. Listening to the audiobook was a real treat! If you're interested in the world of Harry Potter, I highly recommend snagging this! 15% of the proceeds go to Comic Relief and Lumos!
Damn it, Audible.
There was absolutely no reason I needed this little book on audio. It‘s a HP ‘extra‘ I‘ve already read, and it‘s on my Kindle if I needed to read again.
But...you go and get Andrew Lincoln to read it, and I go and click on the video of him talking about it, and then I listen to the sample, and whoops! There goes a credit. 😒
This evening, I read the companion book to Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them. Just as charming and fun, and also gives more exciting information on the huge HP universe created by J.K. Rowling. So much fun—and it also benefits Comic Relief! Definite pick as well!
Soooo.....has anyone noticed they are releasing an audio version of Quidditch Through the Ages narrated by none other than Andrew Lincoln, AKA Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead?! 😱 I can't wait until this comes out, his real speaking voice is lovely (he does a great job with the Georgia accent on the show and I never would have guessed he was British!). #harrypotter #walkingdead #audiobook #audible #quidditch #jkrowling
A really, really light reading, good for an evening of trivia and curiosities about the Harry Potter World. But when It comes to HP I would probabily read also McGonagall's grocery list. (Everything BUT The Cursed Child).
Got my 4 year old to answer the Sorting Hat‘s questions so I can start getting her House-ready. No one is surprised. She was either going to be a Ravenclaw or a Gryffindor but if you knew her, you know she‘d fit right in with Luna Lovegood. I also had her answer the Patronus spell questions, her patronus is a stray cat, I kid you not and also I am ZERO PERCENT surprised. She is a stray cat incarnate. #pottermore #potterhead
These are the first two pages of Quidditch Through the Ages. There is also a foreword by Dumbledore. It's like getting the book straight from the Hogwarts Library. Those little details make the book worth purchasing for me :) :) :)
