I am super excited to be bringing you this book review today! You may already know that I am continuing the #HPDec this year. If you have not heard of #HPDec don’t worry, it is a relatively new things started by Kristin of My Life as a Teacup a few years ago, here the post she did last year. I started re-reading Harry Potter for #HPDec last year and didn’t quite get to finish, but as you can see this year I am off to a smashing head start.
I finally gave in and bought this book to add to my Harry Potter collection. This was after there was much hype about the London play that came out in July. This book is the script of the play. While, I didn’t have the money or the time off to go see the London production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child I was eager to swallow this book in one sitting. I did not stand in line with the hordes of people when it came out instead I patiently waited for #HPDec to roll around to pick it up. Don’t worry I already had a ton of feels and watch a few too many book tubers give reviews on this book, so I knew more than my fair share jumping in.
This book picks up exactly where he left Harry Potter and his friends in the epilogue 19 years after Voldemort has been defeated. As mentioned in the epilogue of book 7, Harry and Ginny’s youngest son Albus is having troubles dealing with what house he may get sorted into in his first years at Hogwarts. While, I try not to give spoilers in my reviews this one is a dead giveaway. Albus unlike his siblings is sorted into Slytherin and soon feels ostracized from his family for being sorted into that house. It is also during his first year that he meets his one and only friend Scorpius, son of Draco Malfoy. Did anyone freak out here when it was revealed that Draco wasn’t married to Pansy Parkinson? (I working my way through the series again, but please don’t tell me what happened to her) There was a twinge of disappointment when I found that out.
