Wow, a new HP book...I never thought I would say (or write) those words. I don't even know how to go into this review.

I guess I can start out by saying that this book was not what I expected, but it was still amazing (because, hello? new HP book!). There were times however, where I felt like the character I was reading about was not the character that J.K. Rowling wrote in the original books. Of course, this was mostly written by Jack Thorne, so no surprise there. I was kind of expecting it.

I loved Scorpius and Albus. They tried to do the right thing multiple times and it kept blowing up in their faces. But it's the thought that counts, right? I definitely friendSHIP them (see what I did there?).

Just the amount of plot twists toward the end of the book kept me on the edge of my toes. The brilliance of it all was just WOW. I definitely want more (as in Rowling to write it as a novelization and not a script book).

It flew by way to fast. I did stay up late to finish it, but it was over too quickly and I WANT MORE. I just want more Harry and Ron and Hermione and Albus and Scorpius and everyone! Definitely loved it and wish I could see the play live. A 10/10 recommend for ANY Harry Potter fan out there.


Thanks for reading
