  1. The screenplay aspect doesn't interest me too much but the magical characters are what really has me intrigued. And it's a plus that it's coming out around the holidays as it will make a great Christmas gift. Hope you love it and thanks for stopping by my blog!

    1. Hi, Barb!

      I will read ANYTHING Rowling writes that's related to the Harry Potter world!! Not interested in her other, adult stuff. So I really don't mind the screenplay format. After all, I own "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child". I even went to the midnight release party, at my local Barnes & Noble. (And I went in costume, too!)

      Yes. it's GREAT that this coming out close to Christmas! I will do my best to attend this midnight release party, as well!!

      You're very welcome for my visit!! Thanks for leaving such a nice comment!! :)

  2. I have never read any of her books but my daughter has and she became addicted to her Harry Potter books and movies. This is a book she would love getting her hands on.

    1. Hi, Freddie!

      I've read up to the middle of Book 6, where I stopped because something very sad took place....Now I'm re-reading the entire series, so I can then go on to "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child". I hope to be able to finish the series this time around!

      I LOVE the Harry Potter books, and the movies, as well!!

      Thanks for dropping by and commenting!! :)

  3. I am looking forward to the movie. I'm sure my husband will get the screenplay when it comes out. He loves stuff like that. :-)

    1. Hi, Wendy!

      Of course, I do prefer novels myself, but heck, I'll read ANYTHING written by Rowling that's related to the HP world!! So I can't wait to get this!!

      Thanks so much for commenting!! <3 :)

  4. Awesome choice. I will admit however that even though I'm an avid reader I have not read any of her books. My 12 year old son & I have started buying the Harry Potter series to read together.

    1. Hi, MJ!

      SO glad you like my choice!! And you haven't read any of the Harry Potter books yet? Oh, you NEED to do so! It's GREAT that you and your son are planning to read them together! That's SO sweet!

      Thanks for the nice comment!! :)
