The Book Shelves: Harry Potter Part 2

Illustrated Harry Potter Books
Josh and I love collecting nice books, before we lived together we always used to joke that we'd bought another 'shelf book' when we picked up display-worthy books. When we did finally move in together it was a challenge to find somewhere to display these beautiful books until finally we settled on a bookcase at the top of the stairs. So that's where our book collection now lives. The shelves can be split into 5 categories, Disney, Harry Potter, The Beatles, Star Wars and magazines/programmes. I thought it would be fun to delve in our book shelves and share our lovely collection of books with you all, so today we'll be looking at our Harry Potter (and Fantastic Beasts) book collection with the focus being on the stories themselves. We covered our collection of factual Harry Potter books in an earlier post.
Of course we have all the original Harry Potter books though some are looking a little worse for wear now and unfortunately have some fading on the spines. I'll never part with the originals although eventually they may get stored away as I start to replace them with the Hufflepuff House editions.

Speaking of the House editions, when these were released last year I knew I'd have to start collecting them as I don't own any other cover versions of just the straight up novels (without illustrations etc). There have been some beautiful covers released but I just couldn't resist the one proudly displaying my house! I wish they'd just release the whole set though rather than one a year because that is quite annoying and it means it'll be another 6 years before my collection is complete!

The illustrated versions have to be some of my favourite books though I dread to think how thick they're going to get! Again these are only been released as one a year so there's 4 more books to go. The Prisoner of Azkaban is by far my favourite cover up to now but I'm excited to see The Deathly Hallows book when we eventually get to it!

I also own the illustrated version of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which was released last year. It's by a different illustrator to the other books but again it's a beautiful book. I wrote a full review of the illustrated version if you'd like to check it out.

I  have the through Lumos charity books, Quidditch Through the Ages, The Tales of Beedle the Bard and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Out of the three, I definitely love Beedle the Bard the most as it's a really nice collection of short stories.

Last but not least in my novel collection are the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them screenplay and Harry Potter and The Cursed Child play script. I found both of these very enjoyable to read and I'm desperate to go and see The Cursed Child at the theatre.

And that concludes my entire Harry Potter collection to date. Obviously as more books are released my collection will continue to grow. Don't forget to check out my full review of the illustrated version of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and be sure to read Part 1 of my Harry Potter book collection to see all the non-fiction books.
