Waiting On Wednesday (35)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that
spotlights upcoming releases that I’m really
looking forward to. Waiting On Wednesday
is the creation of Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:

Harry Potter and the Cursed ChildHarry Potter and the Cursed Child
J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany & Jack Thorne
Arthur A. Levine Books, July 2016
Fantasy

From the publisher—

The Eighth Story. Nineteen Years Later.

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, a new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on July 30, 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.

Why am I waiting so eagerly? I’ve missed Harry and I can’t wait to see what life is like for him now that he’s a family man working for the Ministry of Magic. Having said that, I’m a little trepidatious since this is actually a play script and there are two other writers involved so it will certainly be different from the original series. Still…Harry 😉
