Harry Potter i Przeklęte Dziecko
Harry Potter i Przeklete Dziecko. Czesc pierwsza i druga - J.K. Rowling,John Kerr Tiffany,Jack Thorne

Książki opisujące przygody Harry Pottera mają u mnie szczególne miejsce na półce i w sercu. Więc było wiadomo, że sięgnę również i po tą pozycje.
"Harry Potter i przeklęte dziecko" to historia, która dzieje się dziewiętnaście lat później. Jak wiemy Harry jest bohaterem, pokonał Czarnego Pana, wygrał razem z Gwardią Dumbledora bitwę o Hogwart. Gdy kończy się splendor i sława, zaczyna się zwyczajne życie. Na początku Harry właśnie czegoś takiego chciał...normalności. Zero czarnej magii, zero niebezpiecznych przygód, zero osób do uratowania. Jednak gdy od 11 roku życia regularnie co rok spotykają cię jakieś przygody, normalność w końcu zaczyna nudzić. Dodatkowy problem stanowi krnąbrny syn Albus, który jakby na to nie patrzeć robi wszystko by nie być podobny do sławnego ojca. Jednak jak nosi się nazwisko Potter nie jest to takie proste. Wszyscy uważają go za innego, w dodatku zamiast do Gryffindoru Tiara przydziela go do Slytherinu. A jego najlepszym przyjacielem staje się Scorpius Malfoy. Dla Harrego to powód do zmartwień, ponieważ za chłopcem Malfoyów ciągną się nieprzyjemne plotki.
To sztuka, a więc nie ma rozbudowanych opisów czy przejść z jednej sceny do drugiej. "Przeklęte dziecko" nie wprowadza żadnej nowej wielkiej historii, nawet jeśli kilkakrotnie dodaje coś nowego - zaskakującego bądź kontrowersyjnego - do kanonu. Bardziej można ją potraktować jak dodatek do serii, dzięki któremu możemy spędzić trochę czasu z bohaterami.
Niestety, po zakończeniu czytania nadal mam wrażenie jakbym przeczytała fanfiction. Grubymi nićmi szyta opowieść jest czasami nawet zaskakująca i poruszająca. Ta część jak wszystkie inne przypomina nam jak ważną magią jest czysta miłość i nie trzeba mieć różdżek do wykonania tego czaru. Brakuje tu zawiłości i książkowej logiki, którą tak lubię. Na przykład ucieczka Albusa i Scorpiusa z pociągu...ja nadal zastanawiam się jak oni to zrobili i jak dotarli później w dalsze miejsca...
Przyjemne wydanie, fajnie i szybko się czyta książkę w takiej formie. Jednak fabuła taka sobie. Przeczytałam z ciekawości i sentymentu w ciągu dwóch dni, ale bez szału.

Why Choose a Trailer Tongue Jack

When it comes to the interior of your RV, there are already so many different components, appliances, and essential pieces of equipment that are needed in order for you to comfortably, safely, and efficiently travel with an RV. No matter how long or short the road trip is, you should always come well prepared for anything. The same thing goes for the exterior of your RV and how you manage to transport it from point A to point B.

One of the most important and crucial things to know when using your RV is how to properly hitch it to your vehicle before hitting the road. This is extremely important because if done improperly, there are many opportunities to damage both your motorhome and the vehicle it’s attached to, as well as cause potential damage or accidents to other cars on the road. Needless to say, it’s important that you know what you’re doing when it comes to hitching up your ride before you hit the road.

This can all be done with the help of a trailer tongue jack. This device, if you’re using an electric one, works similarly to any vehicle jack by using hydraulic pressure that makes it easy to lift a heavy load, which in this case would be your RV or motorhome. This kind of device not only allows you to level the trailer properly but also can lift and lower the front of your trailer so you can easily hitch and unhitch the trailer from your tow vehicle.

You can take your pick, but usually, electronic trailer jacks are much easier to operate and can ensure that your trailer is properly leveled so you can hitch it correctly to your truck or car. Plus, manual trailer tongue jacks can be quite strenuous to crank, as you’re trying to level a full-on motorhome with the help of a hand power crank. If you are carrying a heavier load, an automatic tongue jack would be the best option for you.

Having an RV can be a lot of responsibility, but in the end, it’s worth it when you and your family can have those memories to look back on during your RV trips. If you’re a first-timer, it might seem overwhelming, but with enough research and the correct devices, your road trips will become the highlight of your summer vacations.

If this is your first time attempting to use something like this or if you’re in the market for a new device, don’t go anywhere else to get it but RVupgrades. At RVupgrades, they always have the best and highest quality RV accessories and equipment available at reasonable prices. You can pick and choose which trailer jack you think would work best for your rig with all of their great options.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to them on their website at rvupgradestore.com. They are happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have. RVing can be hard sometimes, but with the help of RVupgrades, they will make the process much easier than you could imagine.

THE AGE OF BRONZE by Rob Kidd
Age of Bronze - Rob Kidd,Walt Disney Company

Tumen wants to go home so Jack and his crew take him back where they are greeted by his family and friends. Throwing a celebration dinner and story telling cause Jack and his crew to dream of the City of Gold. Waking the next day there are persona non gratis because the amulet leading to the City of Gold is missing and Tumen's great-grandfather is ill. Knowing they did not steal the amulet leads Jack and crew to search the island where a small doll is found with the mark of Madame Minuit upon it. Now they must sail to New Orleans and find Madame and retrieve the amulet.

 

I enjoyed this story. It starts a little slow but once they hit New Orleans it gets exciting. We find out about Madame Minuit and more about the amulet. We also learn more about Arabella. The ending sets up their next adventure (I hope) and I am ready for it.

Jack Frost: The End Becomes the Beginning (The Guardians, #5) by William Joyce
Guardians Chapter Book #5 - William Joyce

I've been reading this series for a long time now. I began reading this series earlier this year with the intent to read each book back to back to get the full picture of what William Joyce wanted to tell the reader. I started well with my reading adventure, reading all the picture books and the first four books in the series in a timely manner. Then 2020 happened and slapped everyone in the face including myself. I'm not going to lie, guys. It's been hard. Extremely hard. With the pandemic, the civil injustices happening in my country, wildfires raging madly on the West coast, and personal issues happening throughout, I have not had the time nor the mental fortitude to dedicate to reading. My health (physical, mental, and emotional) has not been doing well either. I just feel like I've been all over the place as of late. With that being said, I am hoping things are settling enough that I can get back into reading. Still being mindful and aware we are not out of the woods yet (nor will we be any time soon), but also capable of treating myself right and enjoy a good book from time to time. I'm still mentally clogged with everything going on, but I want to try to get back into the hobbies I love and miss doing this year.

 

And with that, I bring to you my review of Jack Frost: The End Becomes the Beginning.

 

I really liked this book. It's not my favorite book in the series, but I did enjoy it for what it was. I don't intend to go into too many details with this review since it's the final book in the series but I did want to talk about a few things that won't spoil the plot.

 

It's a very good book. And the conclusion, though not really what I was hoping for, was not bad in any way. However, I had a few problems with it as I was reading it. The first thing that bugged me was the pacing. Joyce wrote this book after the movie came out and it shows. Which is a bit of a bummer for since his original story was magnificent. In this book he tried to tie in the movie and book universes too much and it did not blend well. It felt disjointed at times and forced. The pacing suffered because of this as well. The beginning was very slow. VERY SLOW. He kept rehashing certain scenes from the previous books and also diving deep into moments that took placed in the past and not during the actual story being told. A lot of the story was told in "flashback" moments which took the reader out of the current plot. It felt messy and rushed in some areas and it dragged in others.

 

The characters are still loveable and unique. But they definitely took a backseat in this book. Joyce focused more on action and "plot" but he completely forgot about what a lot of readers picked up these books for in the first place and that was to see these amazing characters interact in this whimsical world he created. When those parts appeared in this book, it was incredible just like it was in the precious books. But they were few and far between. Most of the scenes in this book was one battle after the other. That's it. I wanted to see more of the relationships between all of the characters,

 

I especially feel Pitch was left as an afterthought, almost. Yes, he's a lingering presence throughout the whole book, but he doesn't actually make an appearance until the end of the book, if you're not including the flashback portion. It was very underwhelming seeing what happens at the end. I was hoping for more interaction, more feeling. It was like (and I'm keeping it vague here on purpose) Jack does a thing, Emily Jane says thanks, and that's it! I wanted Jack and Pitch to have a full on conversation! To come to the realization that they are not so different after all. To say thanks or sorry or something! But we didn't get much of anything and it felt very hollow.

 

The ending... I'm not a huge fan of. It was an ending that would have meant something if we were introduced to certain elements beforehand. Not almost 250 pages into the book. It felt, like most of this books, rather empty and pointless.

 

That's not to say this book is bad. It's not. I did like it. I was just expecting to see more of the characters I fell in love with interacting with one another and understanding one another. Instead I got a bunch of action with no real substance.

 

If you've read the other books in this series, I do recommend you read this one. It's good to see the conclusion to this amazing series. Just don't expect too much going in and you may enjoy this a lot more.

 

I'm glad that despite everything that's been happening in the world, I was still able to finish this series that I have been meaning to read for quite some time now. I don't know what I'll be reading next but I hope that I will continue to read regardless.
