A Tiny Book Review for a Tiny Book (Quidditch Through the Ages, by J.K. Rowling)

October 7, 2018

For eight years, I kept up my “In Honour of September 1st” Harry Potter posts.

And this year… I did read a book. I did intend to post.

But I am so exhausted this year, and I just… have nothing to say about sports, even when they are fictional.

I always enjoyed reading about Quidditch matches, but Quidditch Through the Ages just did not work for me at all, and I don’t know whether the fault lies with the book, or with my inability to turn off the part of my brain that says, “This is not realistic at all.”



I don’t know where I am going with this project. The Tales of Beedle the Bard would be up for a reread next year, and I know I enjoyed at least one of the tales, so I am looking forward to that, but after that? I was thinking I’d continue with Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and the movies, including the Fantastic Beasts ones, but… I am not really excited about that idea. Especially with all the criticisms of JKR I’m reading lately.

I’ve always said, “I’m a Harry Potter fan, not a J.K. Rowling fan”, when people expected me to follow her to whatever else she would write afterwards, and I’ve always said, when people complained that the series would end after seven books, that I thought it was a good thing. And I certainly wish she had let it end there…

So I’d probably be happier if I let this project end, and pretended nothing after The Tales of Beedle the Bard exists.
