Some Thoughts on Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (Finally)

29056083How has it been over a month since Harry Potter and the Cursed Child came out? I literally don’t know where time goes. Rather predictably, I planned on going to at least one of the super fun-looking midnight release parties held July 31 and bookstores across the city but then fell asleep at 9pm instead. Also rather predictably, I woke up Sunday morning, downloaded the book (play?), and read through the story in one sitting.

I have a hard time know what to say when people ask me about this book.

There are things I liked about it, for sure. Scorpius Malfoy will forever be one of my favorite characters in the Hogwarts world. I love that Draco’s son is like a perfect mix of Ron and Hermione. Poetic justice, for everyone. I also really loved Albus Severus as a character and found the plot very clever. It was a really fun diving back into the world of Hogwarts for a day.  Continue reading “Some Thoughts on Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (Finally)”

Confession, I’ve been venturing into a few HP fanfics lately. It is a pretty crazy world, and some of the stuff I see is not very good. But a lot of what I read is very very good, and it is definitely the most lovely to be back in this world again. As a result of this illicit reading, I definitely have had Harry Potter on my brain lately. I thought I’d throw back to a classic Marry Date or Dump and ask you to choose between these three integral characters.

Marry, Date or Dump: The Marauders

Happy Monday friends! There is something about the Halloween to Christmas season that puts Hogwarts on my mind. I mean honestly, there is something about any time of year that puts Hogwarts on my mind, but I think it is there more during the holiday season. I thought it would be fun to see which of the Marauders everyone would marry, date, or dump. I decided to leave Wormtail/Peter pettigrew off the list, because everyone would dump him (although if you disagree please explain yourself in the comments!). So your choices are James Potter (Prongs), Sirius Black (Padfoot), and Remus Lupin (Moony). I’m still making my mind up so I’m excited to see who you pick!

Marry, Date or Dump: Triwizard Tournament Champions

After J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter’s birthday last week, I definitely have Hogwarts on my mind. I’ve done lots of harry potter themed marry, date or dump posts (and I will probably do lots more), but this week I wondered who you would choose between the Triwizard champions. Let me know who you’d marry, who you’d date, and who you’d dump between Cedric Diggory, Fleur Delacour, and Viktor Krum. I’m excited to see how you decide!
