Waiting on Wednesday - Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J. K. Rowling

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Here's this week's book that I can't wait for...

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (Harry Potter, #7.5) 
by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne & John Tiffany
Expected Publication: 31st July 2016

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

I'm sure this one will be around a lot today. I first saw it around last week and I'm so excited to read it I just hope it lives up to the originals but I'm sure it will be just as epic. As for the show I wish I was able to go but I don't think that's going to happen so I'm just going to have to settle for the book. Come on July!

What are you waiting on?
