Just for Fun Reading Challenge: Harry Potter: The Prequel by JK Rowling

Just for Fun Reading Challenge is a year long monthly challenge hosted by Dolly @ Dollycas thoughts.

I was cruising through Goodreads when I saw someone post this as "To-Read". I felt like the worst HP fan ever because I had no idea this even existed. Once I read it, I wasn't entirely convinced that JK had written it anyway.

First of all it was really short and it sounded like terrible fan fiction. "The Policeman pulled over and said 'Whoa!'" or something like that, was the sinker for me. Honestly, as much as I wish that JK WOULD make a prequel, she fleshed everything out as much as she possibly could in the last couple books. I later read that it was just a first draft for fun and that of course it's going to be a crappy read.

It did make me remember how much I loved the series and that I should revisit it sometime!


  1. I hadn't heard about this one either, but it does sound sort of cheesy :)

  2. I hadn't heard of this either so don't feel bad. It's so interesting what they'll publish from a very famous author.


I appreciate your comments!
