Playing with the Past
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts I and II (English)(Hardcover) - John Tiffany & J K Rowling Jack Thorne

Harry and Ginny are married and have three children together. The middle child is having a hard time adapting. He feels like he doesn't really belong and where he fits in, he is the Slytherin House. He has a friend in Draco Malfoy's son, Scorpius. Scorpius also doesn't feel like he belongs. He is rumored to by Voldemort's child. One day before their third year, Albus overhears a conversation between Cedric Diggory's father and his own father, begging for Harry to use an illegal Time-Turner to go back and save his son. 

 

They are prodded on by Delphi who claims to be Cedric's cousin. She keeps getting them to go back, in hopes of changing the past so much that she can make a prophecy come true. 

 

Scorpius points out that because it is predicted, doesn't mean it has to happen. The boys go back in time twice together and Scorpius 2 more times without Albus and once more with Delphi. 

 

This book looks at teens going through life changes, trying to figure out who they are and where they fit. The relationships between the teens and their parents, in this case, the sons and fathers. It also looks at the relationship between Draco and Harry. They come together and learn how each felt about the other and help each other with finding their sons. 

 

I loved the Harry Potter books when they first came out and I have reread them many times. It was fun to see how things continued after Voldemort died and how the main characters grew and changed themselves.

Those that we love never truly leave us, Harry. There are things that death cannot touch. Paint . . . and memory . . . and love.

I love this thought that someone never leaves us.

People say parenting is the hardest job in the world —they’re wrong —growing up is. We all just forget how hard it was.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts I and II (English)(Hardcover) - John Tiffany & J K Rowling Jack Thorne

I am reading this on the Kindle and can give an approximate page - about 41%.  

 

This is is Draco to Harry and Ginny. Growing up is hard, trying to find your way. Figure out who is a true friend and who would take you out as soon as they can.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Sssssecrets
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - J.K. Rowling,Mary GrandPré

I initially read this book to my son when it first came out.  I think he was 5.  That was a really long time ago and I couldn´t remember the story so I decided to read it again.  I am surprised at how much I had forgotten.  I love Dobbie, the house elf and how he would do something bad and then punish himself by banging his head into the wall or shutting his ears into the oven. Poor Dobbie.  I loved the flying car and how the boys stole it when they couldn´t get on the train to get to the school.  Harry and Ron narrowly escaped expulsion from school and were warned not to get into any more trouble.  Then, Harry starts hearing this strange voice that no one else can hear saying, ¨kill....kill......¨  He follows the voice and finds Mrs. Norris, a cat that roams the halls of the school petrified over words painted on the wall saying that the Chamber of Secrets has been opened and warning that all muggle born would be killed.  Of course, Harry, Ron, and Hermione are going to try to figure out what is going on for themselves since the staff at the school don´t seem to be able to.  

 

I enjoyed reading this book again but it made me sad thinking about my cute little boy that is now not so cute and a lot more hairy.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - J.K. Rowling,Mary GrandPré

I was so excited to start reading this book to K. We read book one and he really seemed to enjoy it so I decided he was ready for book 2. Harry Potter is back at Hogwarts and it won't be an easy year for him it seems that something will try to stop him from going to Hogwarts because something bad is suppose to happen. On top of that Harry is hearing parseltongue yet he doesn't understand what he is doing until he is told. Something starts scaring students and it has the teachers worried but hey leave it up to Harry and his two friends to try to find out what is going on at Hogwarts and try to stop it. 

The author did a great job with this magical world! Makes me wish that this could really happen in real life!

K enjoyed the story yet he wants to see the movie again because he thinks doing magic is pretty cool. 

We will be starting book three soon, K decided we needed a break because Harry Potter is a big book!
