Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - By J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, John Tiffany

As a huge fan of the Harry Potter series since the very beginning, I knew I had to get my hands on J.K. Rowling's latest story "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" which is based on the stage play in London. Just when I thought the Harry Potter Series was over, J.K. Rowling surprised her fans with an 8th story filled with a new generation of Hogwarts students 19 years after the Battle of Hogwarts. At first I was a bit skeptical about reading it as I knew that the format of the story is different from the previous 7 novels.  Although it is told in script format, I found myself not being able to stop reading.  The format is different, that's for sure, but it didn't change the quality of the story.  I loved how they brought back many of the things I loved about the previous Harry Potter stories such as Quidditch, Time-Turners, and the Triwizard Tournament.
