Excerpt from The Cursed Child, by JK Rowling

This Friday, I will be releasing Chloe, Between the Cracks #4. Before then, you can sign up for the Goodreads Giveaway for a chance to win a free paperback copy, download Ruby, Between the Cracks, the first book in the series, or read a sample of Chloe. Then, of course, watch here or on my social networks for the release on Friday!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

Here is another book that I read over the Christmas vacation: The Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany. I bought it for my son, but I read it before he did. We have enjoyed many hours of reading Harry Potter books together over the years. It is an interesting read; I found it odd to read a J.K. Rowling book without her rich description and narrative. But it was nice to revisit some old friends. Here is my teaser:

I, uh, I opened a book. Something which has — in all my years on this planet — never been a particularly dangerous activity.
J.K. Rowling, The Cursed Child

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.”

  1. Cute teaser!! Thank you for sharing! Here’s my teaser for this week: Starling by Lesley Livingston

  2. I really liked that one. So glad to be back in the HP universe

  3. The only JK Rowling book I’ve read is the first adult book she wrote and it was OK. I’ve enjoyed the Potter movies (what I’ve seen of them) but never got into the books. I don’t know if I’ll read this one or not — I already have way too many books waiting to be read. Thanks for sharing about it. Here’s my link for this week: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1rl

  4. This book is on my TBR list. I’ll get around to it eventually!

    I know I bought this one. I’m not sure if it’s on TBR mountain or if I donated it. I’ll have to check. I have two this week – Beheld by Alex Flinn and A Perilous Undertaking by Deanna Raybourn. Happy reading!
