Where I Got It: My shelf (bday gift)

A complete guide to the spells, charms, and hexes used throughout the Harry Potter Universe. Includes information about wands and other enchanted objects as well.

I was looking through my unread physical books and nothing was catching my eye. I spotted this little number and decided I needed an easy book to read. 

This is a guide to spells, charms, and hexes used throughout the HP Universe. It also includes information about enchanted objects as well like wands. 

This was quick and easy, but entertaining. I loved reading more of the lore behind some of the magic elements of the HP world. 

I especially loved the bits about the wands!

There are little ancedotes throughout the book about where a certain spell was used or the history behind it's creation. It was interesting and a nice chang of pace for me. I have been feeling a little...meh? This was a nice fresh read. 

Def an informational, but interesting especially if you love the HP world. I do wish we had more in the guide like digging into the different (known) patronous shapes and maybe some characters? Sure it would've made it longer, but I feel like we could've used more. 

4 stars for me though. It was nice

I've only read the series once so I would need to read it again to get the benefit of more detail like this. But I think I would enjoy it.

I may have read this when it came out? I have a couple small books that were special releases about that time.
