The Eighth Story. Nineteen Years Later.

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, a new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on July 30, 2016.

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.

Since I moved to another country I was able to get a more decent phone, so, naturally, I had to look for new apps! :)

Seventeen-year-old Crystal White is the new girl on Starfish Island. Dragged to the remote community by her environmental activist father, she is eager to find fun that doesn’t involve touching fish guts or listening to local folklore.

During a midnight swim with some new friends, Crystal is pulled out to sea by the waves. Convinced she’s going to drown, Crystal is rescued by Llyr, a handsome stranger. As she searches for him in the following weeks, she finds there may be more truth to the Starfish legends than she thought.

Over a sizzling roller-coaster summer, Llyr introduces Crystal to magic she’d only ever dreamed of. But as Crystal comes to love Starfish Island, it begins to drive her family apart. A nearby power plant is devastating local marine life, and her parents are stuck in the middle. As the magic and mundane parts of Crystal’s life converge, she finds herself risking everything to save Llyr, her family, and herself.

Bridget Jones's Baby (2016)

Bridget Jones 1 & 2 are two of my favorite movies EVER, I find them incredibly funny and entertaining, so, naturally, I've been really looking forward to the third movie!! Hmm well, no, not exactly. I've been waiting for years for a third movie to be announced, thinking that it might never happen, but OH MY GOD IT HAPPENED AND I'M SO HAPPY. Especially after that third book came out, because... well, have you read what it's about?! No, thank you, Helen Fielding, I'd rather have this movie. Thank you very much.

Shadowhunters - Season 1

If you're familiar with The Mortal Instruments book series by Cassandra Clare, then you might have seen the Shadowhunters TV show, which follows the same story.

I actually started watching this in January when it came out and had to stop it for certain reasons, but I had the chance to finish it just recently and now I'm ready to talk about it! :)
