I was lucky enough to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway the other day. It was one of the most magical experiences I’ve ever had in the theater. It also reminded me of everything I loved about Harry Potter, and how much it’s meant to me over the years. The following are just a few of the reasons I fell in love with the series…

Right now, I am working on my goal of decreasing my TBR list (somewhow it’s become gigantic. Who knew?). Because of this, I keep looking back on what’s on the list, and I thought I would share some of the books I am really looking forward to reading.

Isabelle only wanted to take care of her father. Unfortunately, taking care of her father means following him out into what the weather reporters were calling ‘The Storm of the Century.’ When Isabelle’s car slides off the road and wedges itself into a snow bank, she has no choice but to seek help from the illusive Fitzroy mansion, tucked away in the woods on the edge of town. Inside, she encounters Leo, a solemn man with a dark past and a scarred face, who begrudgingly lets her stay after the roads close. She grows increasingly frustrated by his secrets, including the forbidden door that she is not allowed to look behind. At least he has his own personal library for her to browse.
Leo Fitzroy was once the popular son of one of Grimford’s wealthiest men. But after tragedy struck, he locked his broken body away in his mansion, staying away from the outside world that pitied him. He was used to his solitude, and he does not appreciate Isabelle’s special brand of annoyance. He wants nothing more to get her out of the house as soon as the roads are cleared. But when he learns that she likes books and 80s cult classics, he begins to realize that maybe she’s not so bad. Except the longer that she is in his house, the closer she gets to his secret. If she finds out, it will ruin everything.
A modern retelling of “Beauty and the Beast.”
