Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Throne


290581555 stars

100% 5 stars. Oh my god. Oh my god. I can't believe it's over, I literally just put it down and I'm kind of crying. That was amazing. That was so amazing. I love it so much and I don't want it to be finished.

I have no idea where to begin. This means so much to me. I grew up with Harry Potter, wether I liked it or not. My mum was a huge fan and she showed me a couple of the movies and I loved them so when I was about 7 she started reading it to me every night and I kind of hated it but when I was about 9 my teacher read them to us and the whole class was obsessed with it. I remember one day, it was just after the Half Blood Prince movie came out a kid came in and told everyone that Dumbledore died and no one ever wanted to be his friend again. I read the books for myself when I was about 11 and since then I reread them about once a year because I can't help but go back to them.

I adored the friendship between Albus and Scorpius, it was so sweet to see. I love Scorpius so bloody much. I love all the characters a lot. I must say it was hard for me to picture everyone so grown up, it was weird and now I just want to go read about them being little babies again. I loved Draco in the other books but I loved him so much in this book even though he wasn't present in a lot of it. There is something about seeing people as dads that gets me somewhere deep in the feels. It was so sweet to see him concerned for his son and to see how much love he held for his son. I love it. There was also a lot of Romione love and that was just so good on my soul. Romione is like air for me, I can not get enough of it. J.K. could release a book just about the Romione household and I would eat it up (I'd eat up anything she writes though) I would read that for the rest of my life.

This was my first time reading a script and I was scared it would put me off but it didn't. At first it was weird and took a minute or two to get it all in my head but after that it flowed easily for me, just like a normal book. I did not think it would flow as easily as it did at all. I was actually really nervous when I found out it was only being released as a script, I'd stayed away from them for so long but this has absolutely changed my mind. I am so thrilled.

I won't say anything about the plot line other than I loved it. It was so cool and it's spiked a lot of thought for me . I wasn't expecting it at all, I don't really know what I was expecting but it wasn't that.

I have so many feelings and I'm actually surprised I managed to keep my review as calm as I have. Although, I can bet you some time tonight it'll really hit. Harry Potter hits me in a way no other book series does. I feel so sad that it's over again. It's like when Christmas Days over or you birthday and you get that sadness in the pit of your stomach because you'd been waiting so long and it was over in a flash. I hate that feeling so much because now I just want to go back to before I'd read it and just enjoy it a bit more but now it's over again. I can not say enough how much I love it. I know so many of you can probably relate to it because so many of you have grown up with it too but the story only dies if we let it and the stories hold so much magic and nostalgia. I'll be reading them to my children and my grandchildren one day.

  1. Yes I completely agree! I loved the plot line and everything about it! I think the only thing I would complain about is that I wish Scorbus would have happened, but what can you do?

    1. The whole time I was dying for Scorbus to happen, I still am dying for Scorbus to happen.

  2. It's amazing that you enjoyed it!
    I had very mixed feelings about this book. I mean I liked the parts you talked about here but I, personally, wasn't satisfied. It was great to return to the Wizarding World but I just didn't feel the magic. I'm really glad you liked it!
