Short Stories from Hogwarts

In the last few days I read the Pottermore Presents Series, where they collected J.K. Rowlings writings from Pottermore. Within three short books we get to know a lot about different characters, classes, spells and a lot of other things.

Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies by J.K. Rowling consists of short stories about different people who are called heros in the wizarding world.
We get to know a lot about Minerva McGonagall, who is indeed a heroine! J.K. Rowling tells as about her live and it was so interesting to me to get to know her that well! Remus Lupin is also one of the characters who got a detailed description in this book. Also Sybill Trelawney and Silvanus Kettlebrun, both teachers of Hogwarts. Besides J.K. Rowling tells as a few things about Animagi and Werewolves.
These short stories were so interesting and wonderful written! I am so glad that I got to know a few of my favorite characters better! Now I know a lot of things I did not know before.


Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists by J.K. Rowling is about those people of power in the magic world, such as the Ministers of Magic, but also Dolores Umbridge. We get to know a lot about Horace Slughorn and Potions but also about Professor Quirrell and the Poltergeist Peeves.
It was really nice to get to know a lot about all the Minister of Magic and also Askaban, the prison. Very interesting for me was the story of Dolores Umbridge, because we did not know a lot about her from the books. She is a very complex character to be honest. And I am really glad that Peeves was also in this short book because I really miss him in the films!
Again this short stories a awesome and I love getting to know new facts about different characters or classes.


Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide by J.K. Rowling is a short ebook with short extra stories about Hogwarts which are usually on Pottermore.
This book tells us stories about the Hogwarts Express and King’s Cross Station, about the Sorting Hat, places on the grounds of Hogwarts we didn’t meet in detail in the Harry Potter books, Lessons, Ghosts and Portraits in the castle and the secrets of the castle. Between those short stories are the thoughts of J.K. Rowling about a specific topic.
While reading this short book I got to know a lot of new things about the magic world. While reading works of Rowling you just feel this magical feeling you get every time something Harry Potter related comes across your way. This book is truly magical!
