It’s Halloween and, as promised, J.K. Rowling has delivered us the treat of a new story from the wizarding world of our hero, Harry Potter. But before jumping in, let’s not forget that this a day of fright. This story fittingly features one of the most sinister, cringe-inducing characters to come across Harry Potter’s path, Dolores Umbridge [insert booing here] [and we don’t mean the ghostly kind]. Rowling tackles Umbridge’s past and rise to power within the Ministry of Magic, while also discussing where she found inspiration for the character. Head over to Today.com or jump on to Pottermore (which you should probably do anyway) to check it out.
Our conclusion? We still don’t like Dolores… (Though we always love reading new Harry Potter stories!)
