The closest we'll get to a Hogwarts textbook!
2 April 2019
While it's not the Hogwarts: A History textbook that I'd die for, it's a fab collection of short stories and musings on Hogwarts and its most colourful inhabitants. We get to finally see inside the Hufflepuff common room, learn about the origins of the Hogwarts Express, find out how Nearly Headless Nick became nearly headless, and find out what happened to the Mirror of Erised - among much more!
This is a quick read that adds even more depth to the wizarding world, and I enjoyed every minute of it. It's great to get more back story on certain people or magical objects, as well as get some of JK's insights as to why things were or weren't included. I'll definitely be giving this a reread soon!
