Another World: A book review

In a world of its own.

Few pages into the book, you will realise you’re tricked. By the ghostly apparition on the cover. By the title. This is not the ghost story you signed up for. Picking a book by not reading about it, doesn’t seem a brilliant idea all of a sudden.

Fantastic Beasts And Where to Find Them (2016)

5 years later a dead fandom comes to life and in the most magical way possible.

I still remember when the eight year old me sat in one of the old cinema seats to watch one of my favourite books come to life on the big screen; the anticipation, the barely contained excitement, the awe at finally getting to see the magical world that I had imagined and built up in my mind for a few years.
