Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Review (SPOILERS)

Harry Potter and Cursed Child! Magic.

I LOVE IT! End of review.

Just kidding.

I really did love it though. But I don’t think everyone will. I think you have to go in with an open mind and not expecting it to be an 8th book of the original series. First of all, it is a play, second of all the story follows a whole new set of characters (the children of the original characters). I read it as approved historical fan-fiction. And that approach worked really well for me. There were some parts that I think were out of character for some of the characters but nothing that sent me into a literary tailspin. Except for the trolley witch. I mean, what the heck? That was just weird. Continue reading “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Review (SPOILERS)”

Reblog – Roald Dahl

I don’t reblog a lot of posts on here but I had to share this. Roald Dahl was my favorite author when I was a kid (even though The Witches gave me nightmares) and I hope his legacy lasts for many, many more years.

Roald Dahl, the whimsical and wicked mind behind Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, and other famous children’s literature, would have turned 100 on September 13, 2016. Here are seven stories about the man behind these tales.

The Tattered Cover Bookstore, Denver, CO

I was lucky enough to attend the Denver Publishing Institute (DPI) this summer and because of this I was blessed with the opportunity to visit the amazing Tattered Cover Bookstore! I don’t have many independent bookstores where I live, so it was so exciting to experience this store. I actually ended up going to 4 of their locations – Colfax, Historic LoDo, Union Station and their airport store. I went to a talk with Laird Hunt, author of Neverhome (good read) at the Colfax location with DPI and the LoDo store had a midnight release party for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and I had so much fun at it! (I’m a proud Hufflepuff)

The store itself is awesome. I love bookstores as a rule but this one was beautiful. Continue reading “The Tattered Cover Bookstore, Denver, CO”
