I remember the year 2007 like it was yesterday, I spent it going to Wizard Rock concerts, listening to MuggleCast, and staying up to go to a Midnight Release party for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. You can imagine what that night looked like as I went straight home and read it in less than 24 hours. 2016 has reminded me an awful lot of 2007 what with the release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, as well as the ebooks Jo Rowling released this summer.

Seeing that the movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is being released in theatres November 2016 I thought I would share with you three fall reads for the Harry Potter fan.

1. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J. K. Rowling (2009). This book was released years ago and the proceeds went to charity. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a textbook in the famous Harry Potter series and Rowling wrote the book describing different beasts in the Wizarding World. I will be rereading this book before the movie (same title but Rowling wrote a screenplay of a different story) comes out in November.

2. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them An Original Screenplay by J. K. Rowling (2016). This is a hardcover screenplay of the movie being released in November. Jo Rowling wrote this completely herself and it is based in New York City with Eddie Redmayne (swoons) as the main character. The release date is November 18, 2016 and you can pre-order it through Amazon and have it arrive at your house (no massive line-ups at midnight). Having read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child I am confident that I will enjoy reading another screenplay and can't wait to delve into a magical story again.

3. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Illustrated Edition (Harry Potter, Book 2) by J. K. Rowling, released October 4, 2016. Scholastic released the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone last fall and this fall they are releasing the illustrated version of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I own the illustrated version of Sorcerer's Stone and I have to say, it is exquisite and is a Harry Potter fan's dream. I must say, my Harry Potter books have been well loved over the years so Scholastic releasing hardcover illustrated versions of each Harry Potter book each year is brilliant as it allows me to have a nicer version of the book without paying for a box set of hardcover books all at once. Also, I love rereading Harry Potter books and autumn is the perfect time to reread the book along with gorgeous illustrations.

Are you a fan of Harry Potter? If so, please let me know in the comments which books you will be purchasing this fall of if you will be putting these books on your Christmas wishlist.

  1. I adore the HP series, I haven't had time to re-read almost anything - for some reason I feel the need to move on to a book I've never read and I keep telling myself I'll go back for re-reads but I never do. I might, though, I'd love to get back to Goblet of Fire!

    1. You should definitely reread the series when you find the time. Also, I recommend pre-ordering Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them the Original Screenplay as it will be something you have never read before!

  2. All of these are on my list!!! Can't wait for the movie to come out!
