Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Roaowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne – Goodreads
This one is no doubt polarizing, but I ended up enjoying it. I think understanding that Rowling didn’t write this and that as a play it’s is handled definitely. Emotions are pushed harder, making them a bit cheesier in places, so that you get the just of how deep these feelings go quicker. Situations are sped up because a play only has a limited amount of time to work with. There is so much we don’t see in this, but I liked what I did see and much of it were actually things I’ve already thought about since the completion of the series. I do want to see the play though, because I’m positive there are things we’re missing out on that would otherwise fix some smaller issues.
Rooms by Lauren Oliver – Goodreads
This turned out to be somewhat underwhelming. I liked the use of the ghosts in the over all narrative, and I liked the closer look at how depression affects people in a wide variety of ways..but I just sort of got bored with it about half way through and it seemed to linger much longer than it’s short 300 pages.
The Fireman by Joe Hill – Goodreads
So far I’m really liking this one! I’ve read one Joe Hill novel before and it was half the size of this one, so I’m a bit worried how the rest will go but I love what’s happening now. I really like Harper, the main character, and the illness Dragonscale is pretty crazy. It’s probably going to take me a little bit to get through this one but I am enjoying all the weird little turns this one throws at me.
The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman – Goodreads
So far I’m enjoying this one. i like the idea of multiple universes all being connected by a Library that collects important books and documents from each one.
Dark Matter by Blake Crouch – Goodreads
I requested a review copy of this one after the book I initially wanted became unavailable. I’ve heard some really great things about it though and it seems the author has a pretty loyal following.
