You may have heard this, but J.K. Rowling announced that she would be coming out with 12 new moments on Pottermore. Contrary to popular initial belief, it won’t be 12 short stories, but instead 12 moments posted starting today, December 12th through December 23rd. You have to answer riddles in order to unlock the new moment or gift each day.
I’m a huge Harry Potter fan. I love the books and the movies. I know a number of people who loved the books and hated the movies, but I truly love both. Of course, the movies won’t be as detailed as the books – the movies would be 5 hours long! But that doesn’t make me love the movies any less. I love the feeling of magic coming to life through the movies. So, needless to say, I definitely want/wanted to check out these 12 moments on Pottermore. Today was the first day and I answered the riddle, which wasn’t as easy as you’d think! The answer was obvious, but you had to put a specific name. Without giving it away, the riddle was there and anyone who knows Harry Potter would know the answer- I put the last name of the person –> incorrect. I put the first and last name –>incorrect. I seriously thought there was something wrong with the website!! I’ll be honest, I looked it up to see if something had stopped working or crashed because of all the traffic on the site and I came across the answer. I had to add “Professor” before the name. See? So specific!
Anyway, I think I read the first moment, but I’m not really sure? I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I find the website to be sooo difficult to navigate! And I consider myself a pretty savvy website user and I just find it really confusing to go through. In conclusion, it’s exciting that there are some new little bits of the Potter world coming out, a little disappointing that it’s not really short stories, and a little confusing using the site!
