“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to spotlight upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
I can’t believe I did not yet feature this book/screenplay before. I mean, it’s only MY BIGGEST WISH EVER COME TRUE! I feel like I’ve wanted this almost my whole life. I’m so excited! And nervous! And a little scared. But mostly excited!
My pick for this week: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany
What it’s about:
NEW HARRY POTTER, NEW HARRY POTTER, NEW HARRY POTTER!
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a new play by Jack Thorne, is the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. It will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on 30th July 2016
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.
What book release are you eagerly anticipating?
