Review + Fangirling: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Review + Fangirling: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

IT’S HERE!

If you’re a Harry Potter fan, you know exactly to what I’m referring. This beautiful piece of literature.


This beautiful edition to our most beloved universe. This fantastic and heartfelt story. Which I marathoned in one day, because of course I did. It’s Harry Potter. We’ve all been waiting for this.

So, I won’t include many spoilers, and no big ones. I just want to talk about the book, my feelings, and the thoughts I had when the last pages flipped over and “the end” stared back at me.

Book Talk: Pre-OrderingΒ 

Hello!

Okay, so I was all set to do a Tidbit yesterday (it was Tuesday, after all), but I woke up and the Internet wasn’t working! And since we are a generation of techy people, it was a serious bummer πŸ˜‚ I live out in the country, so the only things around me are fields of grass and cows. Not cell towers. Which means my phone internet is spotty and basically useless. The downside of remote locations! It did eventually get fixed and here I am. 😊 So, no harm done! I actually got a bit of reading in, too.

Since it’s no longer Tuesday, I thought I’d just turn my idea into a book talk, and discuss preordering with you!

Book Talk: Harry Potter Fever

Book Talk: Harry Potter Fever

Hey guys! 

So, I was planning on posting some reviews soon, but I’ve got a little confession about what’s been holding me. I have Harry Potter fever. And it’s getting Sirius πŸ˜‰ 

So, some backstory: I never read the HP books, and I’ve only seen movies 1-4, and that was way back in the day. I don’t know why I never read HP, really. My mom read the first book to me when I was around 8 years old, but I just wasn’t into it. Then, when I was older and enjoyed reading for myself, there was just so much hype around them! My generation was the first to love Harry and company. It seemed like everyone knew everything about the books and talked about everything from the movies all the time. So, I thought I knew the story. It seemed like I didn’t need to read the books. 

Then, fast forward about 8 years. I’m browsing my newly created book-devoted Instagram account (@FridaysAndBooks) a few months before now. And there I saw the most beautiful covers of Harry Potter ever. The Bloomsbury box set editions. 

  
I found them on Book Depository’s website, on sale of all things. And I couldn’t stop myself from creating reasons to buy them πŸ˜‚. Mind you, before this exact moment, I hadn’t considered reading HP at all. When I received them (yay, book mail!), they were to beautiful and such amazing quality that I put down whatever book I was reading at the time to start book one. I took a little break at the beginning of the second book, when it was moving a bit slowly. But, once I really got into the story, I finished books 2-4 in no time! So that brings me to know, at the start of book five, The Order of the Phoenix. 

  
I’m loving these books, and feeling so silly for not reading them earlier! However, I wonder if I would have appreciated them this much if I had read them when I was younger. Anyway, the whole point of this post is to say that I’m alive, and reading, but failing to post because I think that so many reviews have been written about Harry Potter, my writing one would be repetitive. Instead I’m just sharing my love, and asking about yours! 

So, tell me, what HP book is your favorite? Did you read the books or watch the movies first? Is your movie favorite different than your book favorite? I hope you’ll comment so we can discuss! ❀️

Sending love and virtual hugs! Cheers!
