“ALBUS: You were right, Scorpius. This train is magical.

SCORPIUS: At this precise moment in time, I take no pleasure in being right.”

I finally got a chance to pick up Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a play written by Jack Thorne. I was really apprehensive about this release, being a pretty staunch Potterhead, but I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this story. Read my full review here. Cover is linked to Goodreads.

Goodreads Synopsis:

      “It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.
      While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.
