iRead: Harry Potter + The Cursed Child

Image-1 (1)

I have been hearing so many opinions about Harry’s newest adventures in the script for The Cursed Child, and here is mine.

I was beyond excited to have more Harry in my life, so I devoured this easy read in two evenings (quite the feat when you are a new mom). It is so important to remember the format of this “book.” It is a script, it is meant to be acted out on stage, so sometimes it may read flat. It also doesn’t flesh out the world the way we are used to reading with JK. That is because it is meant to be fleshed out on stage, and I’m sure is mindblowing and gorgeous. These are things to keep in mind before reading this “book,” and things that I have seen that are popping up in reviews as strikes against it, which isn’t fair.

With that said, lets get into the SPOILER FILLED review. You have been warned. Do not continue if you have not read the script or do not to be spoiled.

Buzz Bags Review: Game of Thrones

Do you remember the last time I reviewed Buzz Bags here on the blog? It’s a fandom jewelry subscription box that rivals Fandom of the Month Club. They have a different theme each month and for $15 you get a bag stuffed with goodies (namely, 3-5 accessories). In my experience, the bags often come with 5 more than 3, so you are definitely getting your moneys worth. When I broke down the Random Fandom Buzz Bag last time, I had a few gripes. Specifically, I was looking for more of their quality jewelry and less filler. Ask, and you shall receive.

April’s bag was Game of Thrones themed and it was slammed with amazing finds! I was so happy to see their beautiful necklaces included (3 of them, no less!) because I thought they were definitely the stars of the show last time. I instantly fell in love with the Targaryen sigil necklace because I love me some Khaleesi, but the Westeros map and house cog are so wearable and adorable too! I’d love the way these would look paired with a choker and a deep V cut top.
