Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

 I really don’t know what to write here. You just have to read this book! Maybe it will disappoint you, because nothing can ever be as fantastic as the Harry Potter novels. It’s like going back to my childhood, on rainy afternoons, fascinated by the story, all these little details that come within. I wanted to be in Hogwarts so bad, I still want that though. A few months ago, when I first heard about this book, I couldn’t believe my ears. I thought to myself that I’ll never going to read that book, because that story ended in the seventh book for me. But then I surprisingly bought it anyway. I was on my way to a hair appointment, already late and then there was this little bookshop. I just had to get it in that moment and I didn’t regret it for a second. It was so nostalgic to read the play, like turning time. Being a child again, reading Harry Potter for the first time. And also, the story is unbelievable tense. I had to read it in almost one run, I couldn’t though because I was ill.

All the love,

Ron (about Hogwarts): Big. Wonderful. 
Full of food. 
I'd give anything to be going back.
Have you read it? What’d you think about it? Or why don’t you want to read it?

Mobile Library

Which book are you currently reading and which page are you on?

At the moment I am reading Mobile Library by David Whitehouse and I’m on page 180.

What is the first sentence on your current page?

… With full beams dipped to oncoming traffic, the mobile library snaked slowly down the lanes that sliced the country up.

What do you absolutely want to say about your book?

First to mention is the really beautiful cover which catched my eye in the library. I couldn’t resist in taking it home. And it is full of surprises, beautifully written and has a totally lovely story in it. I’m going to give you some quotes that I took note of, because they’re fabulous. It is a book about family and friendship and it reminds us that the stories we tell, are never finished.

It's as in life. Books are life. 
There is just the part you read. 
They start before that. They finish after it.
Everything carries on forever.
You are only in it for those pages, for a tiny window of time.
Do you sometimes read the last pages first?

No, definitely not. I know a lot of people who do that kind of thing but I really don’t understand why they’re doing it. Why continue reading when you know how it is going to end? There won’t be any surprises left to discover. I love to guess how the story could end and sometimes I’m disappointed, sometimes I’m not.

Above you can see the books, I am about to read within the next weeks. What is your current read?

Mistakes are those moments when we grip the future
so hard that it breaks,
and we know we must build another future from the pieces,
but one that can never be as good.

The Maze Runner

WHICH BOOK ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING AND WHICH PAGE ARE YOU ON?

I’m reading The Maze Runner by James Dashner and I am on page 269.

WHAT IS THE FIRST SENTENCE ON YOUR CURRENT PAGE?

… Newt was covered in soot and dirt, his hair matted with sweat.

WHAT DO YOU ABSOLUTELY WANT TO SAY ABOUT YOUR BOOK?

I’ve watched the first Maze Runner film in the cinema and I found it totally amazing. And as I was in the library last week I found the book surprisingly. Before that I’ve never thought of reading about that story, but I thought why not. And it is really a tense read!

She smiled for the first time, and he almost
 had to look away, as if something that nice
 didn’t belong in such a glum and gray place, 
as if he had no right to look at her expression.

Have you read the maze runner series?
