*SPOILER FANTASTIC BEASTS*

I hope percival graves is still alive somewhere over the rainbow and I share the theories of a relationship between Credence and percival before Grindelwald comes and destroyed everything 💔
Credence is a cinnamon roll.
Percival is the new Mr Grey.

Harry Potter Books in Italian

Hi everyone! I’ve seen several posts about Harry Potter books in several languages and, since I have all the seven books, I wanted to share them with you. I wanted to point out that these are the new edition books (which means that the translation is updated compared to the first edition, so for all Italian readers, these books may be different from the ones you know. Also: the covers are different) Have fun!

  1. Harry Potter e la Pietra Filosofale
  2. Harry Potter e la Camera dei Segreti
  3. Harry Potter e il Prigioniero di Azkaban
  4. Harry Potter e il Calice di Fuoco
  5. Harry Potter e l’Ordine della Fenice
  6. Harry Potter e il Principe Mezzosangue
  7. Harry Potter e i Doni della Morte
Non serve a niente rifugiarsi nei sogni, Harry, è dimenticarsi di vivere.

12. Mar. 17 // three days ago was my 21st birthday and today I celebrated with my family; I thought I might share with you the bookish presents I got 🤓
- my brother was in Paris on a school trip, so he went to ‘Shakespeare and company’ and got me this beautiful bag and notebook
- my cousins gifted me 'the Goblet of Fire’, 'the Order of the Phoenix’ and 'Quidditch through the ages’ so I can add them to my english Harry Potter collection

I’m sooo happy
