I have been putting off writing this review for a while now, because I feel that it will not be well received.  However, I have to get this down because I have to get it out of my system, but before I start I just want to say…

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts One and Two by J.K. Rowling


It is impossible for me to put down into words all the feels I get from this book every time I read it without giving away major plot points.  Suffice it to say that this book, the final instalment, to date, of the Harry Potter universe…
