Based on an original new story by J.K.

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.

The Desert Island Book Tag

While I can’t imagine being stranded on a desert island would be my idea of a good time I love travelling, my last holiday was to Cancun Mexico where I spent a lot of time on the beach, so this was the perfect tag for me. Also to be honest I’d rather be on a beach right now, desert island or not, than in freezing cold England.

I was tagged by Jesse at Books at Dawn; thank you so much for the tag Jesse. You can check out his post via the above link and you should definitely check out his blog while you’re there.
