Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Review

What a joy it is to be delving back into the Potterverse! Hogwarts, the Ministry of Magic, the Hogwarts Express and of course Harry, Ron and Hermione. This time though, the story is centred on a friendship between Harry’s son Albus, and Draco’s son Scorpius, who have become friends…and Slytherin classmates. Part One has been a fascinating reintroduction to the magical world, and the story concerns Albus’ frustration at living under the shadow of the famous Harry Potter, and their (Albus and Scorpius’s) attempts to change history to right a wrong. To a correct an injustice. A Mistake.  Continue reading

Ultimate Harry Potter Book Tag

Ultimate Harry Potter Book Tag

I spotted this Tag on susannevalenti and being the huge Harry Potter fan I am, I decided to join in on this Tag. Check out her blog people! Most of the images with quotes and gifs are not mine, I just loved them when I was searching for something to accompany my answers. There is a colossal amount of brilliantly made gifs and quotes which have clearly taken people plenty of time and devotion, and I thank you and congratulate you on them. I would have loved to include more but I didn’t want to make it too overbearing.

With it being my 100th post, I thought I would share some things about me, and I have done that through some top tens of films, books, songs, actors, actresses and places that I like. I also want to say thank you to all my followers that have made me feel that my blog is somewhat interesting and have left comments and liked my blog posts. I know this is a bit of a long post and I apologise for that, but I can assure you this will be the longest post I ever do … until the 200th!

Emma Watson Tribute

Emma Watson Tribute

With having some time on my hands after finishing university for the year, I thought I would do something a bit different and a bit more in depth. Therefore I decided to combine the main function of this blog (reviewing) with a beautiful and talented young woman in a kind of tribute post. The young lady I am referring to is Miss Emma Watson. As some of you may or may not know, I have a huge crush on Emma, I can neither confirm or deny that I have her calendar, posters and a signed poster in my bedroom…For many Brits around my age she was probably one of our first crushes, and due to the Harry Potter book series becoming almost a sacred text in Britain, and especially since the films came out, the world, Emma now has a global fascination. The film series has complimented the book series and is now recognised as the best film franchise of all time with devoted Potterheads around the world and of all ages. Emma’s appearances in the Harry Potter franchise are what she will always be most famous for, but since her early days as the frizzy-haired know-it-all Hermione Granger, she has developed into an exceptional young woman. Not only is she an actress who is getting better at her craft in a variety of roles, but she is also a University of Brown graduate and a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador. I have included some of my thoughts on each of the films she has appeared in, some gifs and photos of said films (Sorry for the huge amount of them!) and a mention to her upcoming film work and her HeForShe involvement.

Harry Potter Studios

Harry Potter Studios

5 / 5

I went to Harry Potter Studios for my 21st birthday. It was absolutely magical! The sets, props, costumes, drawings, models, rooms etcetera were all absolutely brilliant. I really enjoyed every second of the 3 hours I was there. I could of spent all day there! One thing that I was thankful for was that there were many people of the Harry Potter Generation, 19-29 year olds, rather than children. It was great fun to walk around the studio and admiring the brilliant craftsmanship of every item without children running around and shouting, everyone was happy and smiling and willing to let people take photos of each other in front of sets ranging from Dumbledore’s office to 4 Privet Drive. It is a much see attraction for any Harry Potter fan. Here are just a few of the photos I took when I walked around, there are over a hundred more that I took
