The Deja Vu Review [17]: A Short Story/Novella

The Deja Vu Review is a new Sunday feature with mini-reviews from books I’ve read before I began my blog at The Book Addict’s Guide! Since I’ve been reading my whole life and only started my blog back in April of 2012, this is my opportunity to revisit some older books and share some mini-reviews of those that didn’t quite make it into the blog spotlight after the initial read.

This week’s topic is: A short story/novella

Harry Potter: The PrequelHarry Potter: The Prequel by J.K. Rowling
My original GR rating: 3 of 5 stars
Comments: This little prequel to Harry Potter was actually really interesting! I always like reading more about Harry Potter! I think the reason I gave it just three stars was because it was SO short that there really wasn’t much of a story to really rate! I always love little extra tidbits about HP and I’m sure any HP fan will enjoy this but I felt like there wasn’t quite enough plot to really call it a full-out prequel.

Prophet (Struck, #0.5)Prophet by Jennifer Bosworth
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Comments: This was a prequel to Jennifer Bosworth’s debut Struck. I thought it was really interesting that we got to hear a little bit more about Prophet. It really explained why he was the way he was and it was helpful information that would have been too much in the original story but made for a great addition!
