Favorite Quote: “[DUMBLEDORE] ‘You ask me, of all people, how to protect a boy in terrible danger? We cannot protect the young from harm. Pain must and will come.’ [HARRY] ‘So I’m supposed to stand and watch?’ [DUMBLEDORE] ’No. You’re supposed to teach him how to meet life.’”

Why I Chose It: Harry Potter! After watching Fantastic Beasts at the theater I remembered I hadn’t read “book 8” yet.

Other Notes: It was a little off putting reading this one at first given the script format. I think details and plot depth were a casualty of the form…I’m sure the play would be really enjoyable in person. It reads quick and is not unlike looking back through a yearbook, remembering stories and people / characters you love and miss.
