Today I went to the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Launch Party at our local dymocks which was lots of fun! Although we kind of missed out of a lot of activities at the book store (everyone was pretty spread out), it was great being there for the countdown and seeing some people in costume. It was also pretty cool being at the bookstore early before the public gained access.
I haven’t been able to read it yet and I doubt I will over the next few weeks, so no spoilers anyone! The hardback is so completely beautiful though.
Here’s some pics from the day!
It's not a golden ticket but @happyindulgence is still excited as!! #cursedchild #ABCRhi pic.twitter.com/0qTnjOswmB

I'm so jealous. I had to work all day on Saturday, and by the time I left my second job, I was just too tired to even attempt to go to one of the launch parties near me. Oh well… I never went to any of them as a kid, so I don't really feel like I missed out on anything.
I'm glad you had fun, though. I love that huge birthday cake for Harry. lol
My recent post The Olympic Book Tag
Oh man, that definitely sounds exhausting Erin! Yeah, I didn't go to them either but thought it would be fun to experience. It was actually kind of underwhelming, lol.
Awesome video!! I hope you read some more good books in August! Here’s my July Monthly Wrap Up!

Thank you Em! OMG I'm so disappointed that you didn't like it Em!
Aww, look like you had a lot of fun. I, too, am jealous of Aila and I haven't even seen the pictures. 😀
My recent post It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover
Hehe I'm sure she'll post some up once she's done chilling on the beach XD
I'm rereading the HP series right now, so it may be a few weeks before I decide to read this script. Can't wait to read your review!
My recent post The Others by Anne Bishop: This Series Will Be The Death of Me
Awww I love how you\’re re-reading it and getting back into it with this! That sounds lovely.
Really jealous of all you folks who were so excited for Cursed Child's release. I haven't read any of the HP books, but I so wish I could've join in the furor of anticipating its release! The bookstore here had a midnight party at the park and other ones were opened hours past midnight. 🙂
Have a great month to you all!
My recent post July Rewind
Thanks Joy, it\’s always fun to get hyped up with a release with others! I haven\’t been to a bookstore release like that one before, so much fun. Have a lovely month Joy!
Sooooo exciting!!! Looks like you had a blast!!! I'm definitely excited to get a copy as well. Looks like overall you had a fabulous month!! 🙂
Thanks Lisa, it\’s such a beautiful book to pick up, even though it\’s just a script! It was stressful but I\’m glad I\’m all moved in.
I'm so excited to read HP and the Cursed Child! I think it's out here in the US as well, I'll have to get a copy soon. Hope you have a wonderful August, Jeann! It must be fun to be in a new house:-)
It is definitely exciting for those who grew up with HP like myself! I hope you enjoy Tammy. I really do enjoy our new house.
It looks like a lot of fun! I personally didn't pre-order it or anything, I'm waiting for the reviews to decide whether to read it or not! 😀 We also have release party, but not a midnight one. I didn't came, but it also seems like a fun event 😀
My recent post On Growing Up and Letting Go
That makes a lot of sense Tasya, I\’m already hearing early thoughts on it so I want to read it myself to decide!
Omg Jeann, you're so cute in Rhi's video HAHA. Oh man, I'm so excited to dive into the book, even though I won't be able to for a while. In the meantime, I will just keep stroking the hardcover.
Hahah I was so excited Jenna XD she totally sprung me with that camera lol.
