Friday Book Share was created by Shelley Wilson. Anyone can have a go – all you need to do is answer the following questions based on a book you are currently reading/finished reading this week and use the hashtag #FridayBookShare. The rules are as follow:
First line of the book.
Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.
Introduce the main character using only three words.
Delightful design (add the cover image of the book).
Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)
Your favorite line/scene.
I’ve been reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (who hasn’t?)
First line: “Dad. He keeps saying it.”
Recruit fans by adding book blurb (not that I’d need to recruit fans for this one): 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.
Introduce the main character: Albus Potter is a combative son, loyal friend, and full of self-doubt
Audience appeal: Do I really need to say it?
Favorite line/scene: All of them, but I’m really enjoying the family dynamics.
“Everyone’s staring at us again.”
“Because of me! I’m extremely famous. My nose experiments are legendary!”
“They’re certainly something.”
