Harry Potter and the Cursed Child ★★★☆☆

I have done it! I have finally finished the latest—and last—story in the Harry Potter saga! It took me some time, but I finally got there.

Good morning, lovely booknebelungcats! I hope you’re potterheads, because today is a great day to be one. Pottermore is the official Harry Potter site with posts from J.K. Rowling herself.

There is also plenty of information on every Hogwarts house, every character, and even Ilvermorny, the North American school of wizardry.

And yesterday—just yesterday!—they released a new quiz: the Patronus test!
