“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald: The Original Screenplay” By J.K. Rowling Review

At the end of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured in New York with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escapes custody and sets about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists Newt, his former Hogwarts student, who agrees to help once again, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.

This is the second book in the Fantastic Beasts book series which are the original screenplay from the movies. 

In this book we get introduced to French Ministry of Magic and new fantastic animals from the Wizarding World which makes me love this book even more.

The characters here are so fucking awesome, and so well done and presented to us. But that’s just the thing with the Harry Potter universe because every character in this universe are so well written that they feel like real people who I wouldn’t have any problem being best friends with.

The fact that we keep learning more and more about Newt Scamander, Jacob Kowalski and Gellert Grindelwald makes me love this book and this series so much more. And the more I read and learn more about the trio I just can’t help it but love them more and more. And I find myself relating more and more to Newt Scamander after watching and reading the Fantastic Beasts series. 

I gotta be honest and confess that Gellert Grindelwald might be on my top ranking of favourite characters from Harry Potter universe along side Severus Snape. I think that Severus Snape and Gellert Grindelwald are both underrated characters in the Wizarding world. It might be an unpopular opinion but now you know it.

The twist with Credence is so good, that it made me give more points to this book and the whole series. But of course you could see the twist before it happened when the tale with Phoenix was mentioned. 

The writing is the original screenplay so I’m not gonna talk about it because I’m not a screen writer and I don’t know how to review them. 

The plot was fucking awesome, and it was sort of like being a part of this story because you were following the characters so well. 

There are couple of inconsistencies in this book and the whole Fantastic Beasts series but I love the Wizarding wording so of course it won’t bring it down for me. 

And we finally get some scenes from Hogwarts while Dumbledore was still a professor and not the headmaster. And the fact that we learn more about Dumbledore is just brilliant. 

I give this book 5 / 5

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay” By by J.K. Rowling Review

When Magizoologist Newt Scamander arrives in New York, he intends his stay to be just a brief stopover. However, when his magical case is misplaced and some of Newt’s fantastic beasts escape, it spells trouble for everyone. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them marks the screenwriting debut of J.K. Rowling, author of the beloved and internationally bestselling Harry Potter books. Featuring a cast of remarkable characters, this is epic, adventure-packed storytelling at its very best.

We been waiting for a long time for new Harry Potter books and finally they are here. Of course this is a screenplay of the movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them but it was still super fun to read it. Ive watched the movie when it first came out and since that time I forgot things which have happened in it and this book was a good reminder of what have happened. 

This book was super fun to read and it was super interesting and enjoyable as well. I couldn’t stop reading it because it was so interesting and so fun to read it.

Of course we can’t talk much about the writing style and the way it was written because it is a screenplay book of a movie so there are some limitations on how this book can be written. But I’ve still enjoyed it and I had fun reading it.

This book as well as the movie brings the Harry Potter universe to more adult level than the original 7 books of the Harry Potter series. And I loved it. And the fact that we learn more about characters and events before Harry Potter have been born brings more to universe and it makes it feel more real. 

The characters here or so brilliant and awesome. We learn more about important characters in the Harry Potter universe like Newt Scamander, Credence Barebone, Gellert Grindelwald and many more. By learning more about the characters the Harry Potter world becomes so much real and so much interesting.

The fact that the Harry Potter world expends and grows with the readers makes this series so unique.

The friendship between Newt Scamander and Jacob Kowalski reminds me of the friendship between Ron and Harry but also in a way the friendship between Newt and Jacob is unique because as we all know Newt is a wizard and Jacob is a mugle.

The fact that we get introduced to more creatures from the Harry Potter world really makes this books as well as the movie so much more unique because it really shows us that the wizarding world is so much bigger than we thought when the first Harry Potter book came out.

I give this book 5 / 5

“Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” By J.K. Rowling Review

There is a door at the end of a silent corridor. And it’s haunting Harry Pottter’s dreams. Why else would he be waking in the middle of the night, screaming in terror? Harry has a lot on his mind for this, his fifth year at Hogwarts: a Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher with a personality like poisoned honey; a big surprise on the Gryffindor Quidditch team; and the looming terror of the Ordinary Wizarding Level exams. But all these things pale next to the growing threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named – a threat that neither the magical government nor the authorities at Hogwarts can stop.

Just wow, this book as the entire series is so fucking good that I don’t have words to describe it.

However there is one thing which annoyed me with this book. And that thing is that the main action was left for the last 100 pages of this book and this book is over 800 pages long. And these first 700 pages are mostly about Dolores Umbridge drama and about Harry constantly talking about how he is not involved in anything. Which really annoyed me a lot because who in the right mind would let a 15 year old battle one of the greatest wizards of all time ? Because at the age of 15 you barely know anything at all. 

The writing style here was fucking good. The writing style felt more like a tale told over a fire at a summer camp rather than a 800 + pages book. I truly love when this happens and that’s why mum giving this book extra points for that. 

The characters in my opinion are getting better and better. Because they get more depth in them, they get more unique characters. And in this book we get more interesting characters in this series like Bellatrix Lestrange. The characters in this series feels like real human beings which Im the biggest fan of when it happens in books. 

The fact that we learned more about Professor Snape and about Lily and James Potter really makes this book better and more interesting. Because Snape, Lily and James are these characters in the series which deserve more space than they actually get so far at least. And of course Snape is my favourite character in the whole series makes it even more fun to learn more about his origin story. 

The plot itself here feels for the most part not that interesting as the ending. This is because of what I’ve mentioned before that these first 700 pages are mostly about Dolores Umbridge drama and about Harry constantly talking about how he is not involved in anything.

However the ending is just fucking brilliant and it is the reason why I’ve decided to give this book 5 out of 5 because it was so fucking good. It was so good that it made me forgive it for the death of one of my favourite characters in the series. If you know, you know who im talking about. I won’t say who it is just to not spoil the book for people who haven’t read lot yet but still want to enjoy the book without ay spoilers before they get into it. 

We also learn at the end of the book why Harry needs to go to Dursley’s every summer gives you more insights into how great this whole series actually is. 

I gotta say that I wish to see more of the Slytherins in the next 2 books in this series because I feel like we could have more of them. By the way we are talking about book 5 in the series so I think it’s time to revel which house I would want to belong to because no one can talk about Harry Potter without mentioning this fact. So the house which I would have want to be in is of course Slytherin. 

I give this book 5 / 5

“Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” By J.K. Rowling Review

Harry Potter is midway through his training as a wizard and his coming of age. Harry wants to get away from the pernicious Dursleys and go to the International Quidditch Cup with Hermione, Ron, and the Weasleys. He wants to dream about Cho Chang, his crush (and maybe do more than dream). He wants to find out about the mysterious event that’s supposed to take place at Hogwarts this year, an event involving two other rival schools of magic, and a competition that hasn’t happened for hundreds of years. He wants to be a normal, fourteen-year-old wizard. But unfortunately for Harry Potter, he’s not normal – even by wizarding standards.

It seems like the more forward I go into this series the more I enjoy it. And it comes from someone who didn’t like the Harry Potter movies and would rather watch on lope The Simpsons for a year than watch the movies again.

The plot it is the perfect young adult theme which everyone would like. And if I love a Young adult book then it means that everyone would like it. 

The written style in this one is amazing and really brings a lot into this whole series as well as this book. 

The ending in these books are always so damn satisfying. It may have something to do with Harry, Ron and Hermione escaping tragedy and returning to the normal world at the end of each school year. 

The characters here are just brilliant and the character development is very good and very clear to see in every book. Which really makes me glad because who doesn’t love good characters and good character development?

And so far at least in this series it seems like every book has a very good twist at the end which really makes me glad because I love good twists in books. 

And every time I started reading this book it really made it hard to stop reading it because it was so good. 

This book and the series so far is the definition on how Young Adult and fantasy books should be like. 

I give this book 5 / 5

“Breaking Dawn” By Stephenie Meyer Review

Bella and Edward Cullen get married, leaving behind a heartbroken Jacob. When Bella faces unexpected and life-threatening situations, she willingly risks her human life and possible vampire immortality.

I gotta say that this book was the best book in the twilight series so far. I still got two books to read in this series. And these two books are “Life and Death” and “Midnight Sun”. But so far this was the best book in the series so far at least and im giving this book extra points for that.

However I need to say that I have had less fun with this book than I’ve had with the first book in this series. Because I’m not team Jacob and pregnancy kind of disgust me.

There are some moments in this books which don’t make any sense like Edward having sex with Bella when Bella is still a human and Edward is basically the killing machine which can kill her at any second. Another thing is the pregnancy to Bella. She becomes pregnant and gives birth in less than 3 weeks. I gotta say that, that was the fastest pregnancy in the history of everything. There were more things but these two are the main things which made no sense to me.

The writing style feels like it had run down the hill since the first book in this series, because the writing style in this book was kind of bad but the writing style in the first book was amazing. 

The plot was okay, and for the most part it is what you can expect from twilight and teen book about love and vampires. 

The fact that Jacob and Edward in this book are starting to have a little bromance after 3 books of being in a war with each other also didn’t make much sense to me. But I guess that in young adult books nothing has too make sense as long as there is werewolves, vampires, a shy main character with not much friends and a small town.

I give this book 3 / 5

“Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” By J.K. Rowling Review

When the knight bus crashes through the darkness and screeches to a halt in front of him, it’s the start of another far from ordinary year at Hogwarts for Harry Potter. Sirius Black, escaped mass-murderer and follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the run – and they say he is coming after Harry. In his first ever Divination class, Professor Trelawney sees an omen of death in Harry’s tea leaves. But perhaps most terrifying of all are the dementors patrolling the school grounds, with their soul-sucking kiss

I can’t believe how fast I’m going through Harry Potter books, in a little bit over a month I was able to finish 3 Harry Potter books while reading other books on the side. 

I really wish that I’ve read these books when I was in grade school because I would have loved them more than I do now and I would get into reading sooner. 

This book really proves why the Harry Potter series is still one of the best book series which was ever written. It doesn’t matter if you like Young Adult books or not, I promise you that you will like this book and the whole series. Because it isn’t as much Young Adult as fantasy. 

The big twist at the end really blown my mind. I think that most of you know what twist I’m talking about but I won’t say it in case there is someone reading this review who haven’t read this book yet. But I gotta say I truly loved the twist at the end it was so fucking amazing. It was so good that I don’t even have words to describe it. 

The writing style is so good, it really didn’t feel like a Young Adult writing style as much as it felt like a high fantasy writing style. It wasn’t on the level with “A song of ice and fire” but it was very correct writing style for the whole plot in this book and for the theme of the book.

The plot of this book was just wow. I gotta say that the plot have really blown me away. I knew that the books in this series was good but this one have created a new level for this series. 

However I wish that there were more talk about Sirius Black at the beginning and in the middle part of this book. Because this book is supposed to be about him but we don’t get much of him until we are pretty deep into this book. This kind of disappointed me. 

And I gotta say that this book was the first book which made me have some negative thoughts about Professor Snape. As someone of you may know, Professor Snape is my favourite character when it comes to the movies but this book made a huge change because after reading this book my new favourite character is none other than Sirius Black.

I loved also to see Hermione to develop more as a character and not just be the all nerdy school girl made my day. Especially when she gave a knuckle sandwich to Draco’s face.

I give this book 5 / 5

“Eclipse” By Stephenie Meyer Review

As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob – knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which?

I gotta say that this one is the weakest book in the whole series so far, keep in mind that I have still like “Breaking dawn”, “Life and Death” and “Midnight Sun” to read. Which means that I’ve have 3 books to read in this series so everything can happen. But lets get into the review.

The plot oh boy, was very very weak. Because Jake begins to feel more or more crazy as the rest of the gang in this book. Edward become even more insufferable in this book, Charlie the only rational parent in this book have lost his mind as the rest of the gang. Bella gets even more insufferable than Edward because she won’t stop yapping about how being human sucks and how being a vampire is so amazing and great.  And I gotta say Rosalie have become my favourite character because in this book we get to know why she doesn’t like Bella and why she is always so grim. I really wish that Bella was like her and less like Edward in a way.

The writing style really takes a dive in this book, so much that I needed to switch to an audiobook instead of reading the physical version of this book. I had super hard time reading this book.

The situation between Jake, Edward and Bella is just even more insufferable than Edwards and Bella together. Because when Edward was gone in the second book in the series Bella became super best friends with Jake but the moment Edward showed up she completely forgets about Jake and just throws him out of her life like trash. It’s not a fun way to treat someone even a fictional character.

And the fact that Jake calls Edward “Blood-sucker” and Edward calls Jake “Dog” and Bella just lets them offend each other in front of her really pisses me off. Because how can you let your parent and your best friend insult each other in front of you and just not say anything about it? I can’t understand that. 

The big fight which this entire book is about doesn’t happen longer than 10 pages even the rest of the boo over 400 pages is about getting ready for the fight. Whats the point of doing that? Creating a fight for 400 pages but when the fight comes don’t give it longer time than 10 pages? Can someone explain this to me?

I give this point 1 / 5

“New Moon” By Stephenie Meyer Review

I knew we were both in mortal danger. Still, in that instant, I felt well. Whole. I could feel my heart racing in my chest, the blood pulsing hot and fast through my veins again. My lungs filled deep with the sweet scent that came off his skin. It was like there had never been any hole in my chest. I was perfect – not healed, but as if there had never been a wound in the first place. 

I gotta say it felt nice to not have Edward on every single page of the book, and have a little break from him in this book. Not having Edward around, Bella have become so much better character than she is when Edward is around. Every time Edward is around Bella becomes a 10 year old girl in completely in love. That isn’t even half bad. The thing which is the worst with this series is that Bella won’t shut up when it comes to how Vampires are much better than humans and how being  a human sucks. This aspect of this series really pisses me off because being a human is something much better than being a worthless dumb vampire. Yes I’m not a fan of vampires.

The writing style here is bad, the first book was much better when it came to the writing style. Because the writing style in this one was just super bad and it didn’t make sense to me when I was reading it.

When it comes to the plot itself then I’m sort of mentioned it above, but overall it was much better than the first book in this series. Because Edward wasn’t in this book as much as he was in the first book. For me personally Edward is insufferable, and to me he feels like the definition of a bipolar disorder in a teenager. My favorite character after reading this book becomes Jacob because he is the only person who feels like he is fully sane when everyone else in this book series feels like they are completely insane and out of their minds. 

Im Still having super hard time with the story and the characters because the story and the characters feels so out of touch as it possible can be. Edward is basically the guy with bipolar disorder, Bella is this 18 year old who didn’t develop after the age of 6, and every character beside of Jacob have some kind of disorder to them which truly makes this whole series a freak show. 

However this book isn’t half bad as I thought after watching the movie. The movies in the twilight franchise it the pure torture in my life.

I give this book 3 / 5

“Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” By J.K. Rowling Review

Harry Potter’s summer has included the worst birthday ever, doomy warnings from a house-elf called Dobby, and rescue from the Dursleys by his friend Ron Weasley in a magical flying car. Back at HOGWARTS SCHOOL OF WITCHCRAFT AND WIZARDRY for his second year, Harry hears strange whispers echo through empty corridors – and then the attacks start. Students are found as though turned to stone… Dobby’s sinister predictions seem to be coming true.

I gotta say that I’ve enjoyed this second book much more than the first book in the series. And it was a little bit better than the first book but not much better just a half point better. 

I think that most of you have read this books well as the whole series. So I don’t need to explain this book.

The writing style in this book was the generic young adult book writing style as you might expect from it. But when it comes to the overall rating of the writing style then it was pretty decent but nothing extraordinary. 

I gotta give this book points for giving us more background of Hogwarts and what things happened before Harry Potter arrived at the school. 

The plot in this book is amazing, it gripped me and wouldn’t let me go until I’ve finished the entire book. The entire plot it super interesting and enjoyable but there couple of moments where the action went to slow.

When it comes to the action then it was very slow. The whole action of this book happens at the ending fo the book which really pissed me off because this book would have been better if the action started sooner then the ending.

The ending was super fun, and it brought a lot to the story which I need to give it points for. 

However I wished that we could have seen more from the teachers and that the book would make every teacher in the book different from the other teachers. 

When it comes to my favourite character in the series then it is still Professor Snape. If he would have been a real teacher at my school back in the day, then for sure he would be my all time favourite teacher and I would have been at least 5 minutes early to each of his classes. 

I give this book 4 / 5

“The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner” By Stephenie Meyer Review

Exploration of the life of newborn vampire Bree Tanner, who briefly appears in the novel Eclipse as a member of Victoria’s vampire army. Bree is a teenage girl who is changed into a vampire by Victoria. Bree lives with a coven of twenty other newborns and Riley, Victoria’s subordinate.

So I gotta say here that this book was so much better than the first twilight book. This one was my second twilight book so I can’t really compare it to other books in the series. But that gonna change that soon enough, I hope at least. 

The things which pissed me off with the first twilight book didn’t exist here because it wasn’t about Edward and Bella. They were in this book but they were more like side characters which I enjoyed. Bree, the main character was younger than Bella in the first book but she was more likeable, she made better decisions. If Bella was even somehow similar to Bree then the whole main plot would have been so much better.  

This book provides us with a new and unique look into the book series which I truly enjoyed and Stephenie Meyer should write more book in this series which are from perspectives of more side characters like Jasper’s perspective, Jacob’s perspective, Esme’s perspective, Carlisle’ perspective and so on. Doing this would add a lot to this whole universe. 

The writing style was okay, but not much to talk about here. It for the most part was a typical YA book writing style which you know isn’t too deep or too hard. The language is very simple which really speaks that it is a YA book.

The plot itself was very good, it was so much better than the first twilight book. Because it had much more into it. It was short and it didn’t drag for so long as it did with the first book.

The characters here didn’t make so many decisions which pissed me off like they did in the first book in this series. Im really grateful for that because it shows that Stephenie Meyer can great good characters. 

I kind of wished that this book would have been longer than it was. And that this book had more descriptions to it and that it would start at the moment when Bree become a vampire so that we would be more familiar with her and get to know here better.

The ending here was good because it ended in the battlefield between the two covens on the open field in the forest. And I kind of liked that because you wasn’t left with nothing to connect the book to. 

I give this book 4 / 5
