The Cursed Wait

July 31st isn't any ordinary day - it is Harry Potter's birthday! That's why the WHOLE WORLD is waiting until then for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to be released. And it's not easy…

Harry Potter is my favourite book series. It has wizards, witches, giants and even ghosts. It is set at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry where teenagers learn all about magic. I just can't stop turning the pages! Harry and his friends face many obstacles through their school years and the movies add to each book's brilliance.

J.K Rowling has a knack for developing great characters. Hermione Granger is a massive brainiac and has absolutely no experience in kissing. Luna Lovegood is a crazy girl who talks about strange, non-existent creatures such as the 'Blibbering Humdinger' and 'Nargles'. Lord Voldemort is the meanest villain I have ever encountered by far. He murders muggles (non-magic people) and half-bloods (half- muggle and half-magic). I have blogged about him in my Vile Villain series HERE.

If you have been following my Facebook page then you will know Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was the first book I read in this year's MS Readathon. I ended up reading it in only four days! This story was very emotional; some of the losses were so great that I shut the book and waited a few minutes until bravely picking it up again. What got me through was knowing it was not the end. Another book was just around the corner. The wait for this book has been sooooooo unbearable!

While I have been impossibly waiting I have made some Harry Potter quizzes on the game-making website, Scratch. To test yourself on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows go HERE or try my Harry Potter All-Round Quiz HERE.

Like most bookaholics I will be engrossed in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Sunday. I expect quite a lot. It had better be brilliant. Please listen to 97.3 ABC Illawarra at 7.20 on Monday morning to find out if it is.
