Note: I wanted to write a discussion post, but I can’t quite pull my thoughts together into one coherent post. So, I’m just going to embed all my posts from Tumblr, Instagram, and Twitter to form a makeshift discussion. I think collectively, they tell the whole story of how I feel about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. My assessment is based on the actual play; I haven’t finished reading the script yet. For the record, I loved the story! Furthermore, I’ve attempted to keep my posts relatively spoiler free, but as with all things, read at your own discretion. Also, I LOVE Scorpius Malfoy!
DO NOT CONTINUE READING IF YOU HAVE NOT READ ALL OF HER NOVELS!
In addition to being a nerd, I’m a Disney fangirl! When I saw the Disney Book Tag post that Alexa over at Alexa Loves Books did, I knew that me and this tag were a match made in heaven. Like Alexa, I’m also going to challenge myself using only books and characters by one author, and who else would I choose but the wonderful and amazing, Rainbow Rowell.
THE LITTLE MERMAID • A character who is out of their element.
In Carry On, Simon Snow is the main protagonist–The Chosen One. However, much like the fictional wizard he was based on, Simon grew up surrounded with humans and clueless about his past and destiny. He has absolutely no control of his magic and even less understanding of the world he gets thrust into when The Mage finds him in an orphanage and brings him to Watford School of Magicks.
CINDERELLA • A character who goes through a major transformation.
Cather “Cath” Avery from Fangirl is one of my favorite characters because I think she’s a mirror of myself at that age. When we meet Cath, she’s very shy and introverted. She’s just went off to college, and she spends the majority of her days hiding in her dorm room; she is weary of even going to the cafeteria so she eats snack bars and other junk in her room. She obsesses over her chosen fandom (in this case, it’s our beloved Simon & Baz). She’s just a mess, really. As the year progresses, she becomes friends with her outspoken and no-f**ks-giving roommate and she falls for her roommate’s cute friend, Levi. The two of them help Cath come out of her shell (a little bit) and confront some of her demons.
This is my January tbr. I’m almost done with Carry On finally. (It’s so perfect!) I also plan to read The Devil’s Only Friend by Dan Wells, which I’m really, really excited for. It’s the 4th book in the I Am Not A Serial Killer/John Cleaver series. Lastly, I’m going to start rereading the Harry Potter series. I am hoping to finish all 7 books by August 4th, which is the day I see The Cursed Child. 😀
QOTD: What’s your favorite book or series?
I’m in love with these photos! Harry Potter is all grown up.
