It’s not my usual thing but I saw a battered paperback in a tiny cafe in London and was really intrigued. (more…)

Image1 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. (more…)

TOP 10 TUESDAY: Outside of the UK, US & ROI

With X Setting (top ten books set near the beach, top ten book set in boarding school, top ten books set in England, etc)” From The Broke and the Bookish.

“Top Ten Books Outside of the U.S.” was a themed a few months ago and I wasn’t very impressed with what I came up with. Six of my ten books were set in the UK/ROI which seemed like a bit of a cheat. It’s also a bit disheartening that I read more books set in made up fantasy lands than real countries not my own. Since then, I’ve made an effort to read books set outside of my comfort zone so I thought I’d try the topic again with a bit more variety.
