Would You Read These Weird Books From Harry Potter’s World?

by Christine Marie Attardo

Perhaps you are familiar with some of the titles that have been featured in the Harry Potter books and films. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is certainly one that made an impact! Well, thanks to Pottermore it was brought to my attention just how many books have been mentioned in the wizarding world. Then I got to thinking…would I read any of these? Titles like, The Adventures of Martin Miggs, the Mad Muggle certainly capture my attention. What about Men Who Love Dragons Too Much? Sounds pretty complicated, doesn’t it?

Here’s what Pottermore had to say:

Do we even want to know about the sort of people who checked this one out of the library? Even Hagrid stuck with a simple textbook when it came to hatching young Norbert the Norwegian Ridgeback, and we thought his adoration of the ‘misunderstood creatures’ was borderline worrying! That being said, this text is guaranteed to be full of brilliant anecdotes. For instance, we’d love to know more about men determined to domesticate the Hungarian Horntail. Good luck to them (and, possibly, their remaining limbs).

I can’t help but laugh out loud at the thought of the contents.

What about, Blood Brothers: My Life Amongst the Vampires:

Vampires are only very briefly touched upon in the Harry Potter series, and only appeared when Harry met the author of the vampire study, Eldred Worple, at Slughorn’s Christmas party.

Maybe someone should tweet at J.K. Rowling and ask her to write some of these. Read more about titles such as, Hairy Snout, Human Heart and Death Omens: What to Do When You Know the Worst is Coming on Pottermore.
