The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling || Book Review

I have been a fan of the Harry Potter books ever since the first book was published in 1997.

I remember receiving the first and third book as a Christmas present, saving up for the second book and then reading the series in the order of release.

It still remains to this day to be one of my favourite series and pretty much the one that grew my love for reading and set me on the wonderful journey.

It’s only natural that I continue reading all the books ever published by the author and devour all the extra information about the Wizarding World.

Book review: The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling #bookreview #jkrowling #fantasybooks #shortstories #booktwt #bookaddict #booktwitter

Originally published: 2008

Format: Hardcover
Pages: 105

Plot from GoodReads:

“The Tales of Beedle the Bard” contains five richly diverse fairy tales, each with its own magical character, that will variously bring delight, laughter and the thrill of mortal peril.

Additional notes for each story penned by Professor Albus Dumbledore will be enjoyed by Muggles and wizards alike, as the Professor muses on the morals illuminated by the tales, and reveals snippets of information about life at Hogwarts.


I absolutely loved this book! While it’s filled with stories of magic an adventures, it’s packed with some good moral lessons and consequences. I loved getting perspectives around the magical world that weren’t solely focused on Harry, his friends and enemies, and Hogwarts.

I’m not a huge fan of rereading books, even the favourites, as I feel I lose time to read something new and there are just too many books out there calling my name), but even as I was reading the book, it gave me those tingles of remembrance about why I fell in love with J.K. Rowling’s books in the first place.

PS: if you listen to the audiobook, you’re in for a treat with actors doing the narrative. Splendid job there!

My Rating:

The book has a rating of 4.05 on GoodReads. I gave it a 5.
