Review | Calling All Witches by Laurie Calkhoven

Calling All Witches

It feels like forever since I last did a book review so here is a brand new one for you, of course, all about Harry Potter called Calling All Witches! Not just Harry Potter for a change but all the females in the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts universe. When I say all the females, I mean ALL OF THEM! Not just the main ones. I saw this book on my wander around Waterstones and fell in love with the illustrations. You could tell they were based off the actresses who played them but there were definitely little differences!

See?

Doesn’t Hermione look beautiful?! You get the name of the character, 3 words to describe them, a quote about that character and then a few paragraphs chatting about more about their journey. I love how there isn’t pages and pages on detail because we already know and love these ladies and so many books are there already with all the detail you can want. Calling All Witches also has little topics you can work on about specific characters such as what you remember and so on!

Luna’s page definitely has to be one of my favourites because it really shows off her style and charm compared to the others. We obviously have a copy of The Quibbler, a thestral (because that’s how she and Harry really start to connect), some Spectospecs, her cork charm to keep away the Nargles and Ravenclaw’s diadem which is a Horcrux! I think the Ginny page up above describes more the book version rather than the film version but that’s just my opinion! Haha!

I love that we got to see Laurie’s take on how the more minor characters looked if they weren’t featured more in the films such as Helga Hufflepuff and Rowena Ravenclaw! Helga looked so sweet and Rowena so radiant! We also got to see more of Alice Longbottom, Lily Potter and Bunty (from Fantastic Beasts!). I wish we could have seen more of them but I will happily accept their little mentions in this!

What are your thoughts on Calling All Witches and who is your favourite witch in the series?
