"Waiting On" Wednesday: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick for this week:

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.

I highly doubt I'm the only HP fan eagerly awaiting this one.  What are you waiting on this week?

Soooo conflicted over this one! I love Harry Potter but this doesn't feel like a new book to me when it's the script from the play. Again, soooo many conflicted feelings over it!

Here's my WoW

Have a GREAT day!

I really don't know how I feel about this one. Mixed emotions, as much as I love Harry Potter, reading Harry Potter in a script form would be...I don't know, weird I guess

Have a nice day

I'm so unsure about this. As a HP fan, I'm so excited. At the same time, I'm so nervous that it's going to let me down! I really hope it's great. Great pick!

First of all, wow, thanks. I love to see this many comments.

I understand everyone's trepidation about my pick. I have to admit I feel the same way. What if it stinks? Then it almost ruins the whole series.

Hope you all have a great week.
