My Reaction to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in 18 Gifs (And I Haven’t Even Read It Yet)

July 27, 2016 books, miscellaneous 12

To celebrate the release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on July 31st, Aentee @ Read at Midnight came up with the idea of Potterhead July, a month-long Harry Potter blog festival. I grew up with Harry Potter, so obviously I had to participate.



I thought about writing a long, heartfelt post for this, I really did. Instead, I give you my reaction to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in 18 gifs, because that’s just where I’m at.

How I spent my time since the last book was released


How I actually spent it


When I heard about Cursed Child


When I realized it was actually happening


…but there was no chance for me to see it


When I met someone who didn’t know about it yet


When I discovered the Friday Forty lottery where you can get tickets


…when I discovered the tickets are virtually impossible to get


If someone spoils anything before I read it


When I noticed that the release date is only a few days away


But the amazon delivery date says Aug 8th instead of July 31st


What I’ll try to remember if anyone says anything bad about it


What I’ll do as soon as I get my copy


What most people will probably think


How I’ll feel once I’ve read it and it’s over again


What I’ll do if I see someone else reading it


If people get annoyed by the hype


If anyone tries to borrow my copy instead of getting their own



Yes, that last one is my favorite. Also, none of these gifs were created by me. How about you? Are you excited, or could you literally not care less? Are you going to avoid the internet so no one spoilers you, or are you searching out any little hint you can find?

    Ahhhh…. I’m torn! I kinda want to not read it and wait until it comes to NYC. It hasn’t been officially announced yet, but I’m sure it’ll happen ASAP. I think I want to see the play first vs reading it. BUT I know spoilers will be rampant and nobody likes a spoiled Samantha ;)

    I love this post! I admit, I’m pretty anxious about it. But all the hype for the play also makes me really excited! I didn’t pre-order it though. I’ll wait until the reviews are coming, do decide whether to read it or not ;)

    Yeah, I preordered from Amazon too, so I won’t be getting it the day of. I knew that would happen, so I’m not sure why I decided to preorder it instead of going into the store other than I wanted the reassurance that I would have a copy. (Can you imagine going to the store only to discover they’re sold out? I wouldn’t be able to handle it, not that it’s likely to happen.)

    I think I’ll be okay waiting the extra days since I have plenty to keep me busy that week, but I think I’m going to have to completely avoid the Internet. I’ve avoided the spoilers so far, but I imagine that will be a lot tougher once everyone’s reading it.

    I’m one of those people to whom you’ll have to say “No offense, but I really don’t care.” I am interested to read the story, but unfortunately I have read the spoilers and I just don’t think it sounds like a very good story. All the same, I think your GIFs are quite amusing and I hope that you enjoy the play when you get to read it!
