Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Parts One and Two

By J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany

Expected Publication Date: July 31, 2016

For my first Waiting on Wednesday post, I’m not even sure this need to be said, but I CANNOT EVEN CONTAIN MY EXCITEMENT. When I first found out there’d be an eighth Harry Potter “book,” I wasn’t really sure how I felt. I had happily put to rest all feelings of I WANT MORE on the series. But now…now there is this. Future Harry.


Without further ado, here is the (AWESOME) synopsis on the newest Harry Potter book, which can be found here on Goodreads.

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.
