Waiting on Wednesday #16: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay by J.K. Rowling

Hello everyone! "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, that is hosted by Breaking the Spine and the purpose of this event is that we spotlight upcoming releases of books that we are excited for! 

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Title:  Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay
Author: J.K. Rowling
Expected Publication Date:  November 19th, 2016

J.K. Rowling's screenwriting debut is captured in this exciting hardcover edition of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them screenplay.

When Magizoologist Newt Scamander arrives in New York, he intends his stay to be just a brief stopover. However, when his magical case is misplaced and some of Newt's fantastic beasts escape, it spells trouble for everyone…

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them marks the screenwriting debut of J.K. Rowling, author of the beloved and internationally bestselling Harry Potter books. Featuring a cast of remarkable characters, this is epic, adventure-packed storytelling at its very best.

Whether an existing fan or new to the wizarding world, this is a perfect addition to any reader's bookshelf.

A screenplay about J.K. Rowling's first screenplay debut!  Count me in!

So, what upcoming books are you looking forward to?  Please respond below!


  1. I'm not sure how I feel about these screenplays coming out. I've seen very mixed reviews on The Cursed Child and I think I, personally, would much prefer actually SEEING the play or films over reading the extra/additional material. Don't get me wrong, I ADORE Harry Potter...but... I'm not real interested in picking up all these extra books? I might be weird in that regard though. Regardless, I hope YOU enjoy it when you get the chance to pick it up!

    Here is my Weekly Wishlist post, if you're interested in taking a gander. No pressure or worries if you're not, though! Either way, happy book-ing to you in the near future...and have a great rest of your week!

    1. Thanks! I will admit that I was a bit annoyed with the constant screenplays coming out instead of just writing a full on book, but I am a bit interested to see how this will play out.

  2. I'm intrigued by this one as well :)

  3. I also prefer actually seeing the movie, then reading the screenplays. Thanks for stopping by our blog. Happy Reading!

  4. OOoo, interesting. I'm not into screenplays but I did like Harry Potter, back in the day. I should do a marathon reread of the series, especially since I haven't read Cursed Child. :D I hope you enjoy this book when you get a chance to read it!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a wonderful week. =)

    1. You're welcome and I might do a reread of Harry Potter myself!

  5. I'm going tonight to see the movie and I can't wait! Great pick! Thanks for stopping by Lisa Loves Literature's WOW earlier.

  6. I'm equally excited about Fantastic Beasts. I never thought I'd say this, but I'll probably watch the movie and skip the screenplay.
