After a week of reading in my spare time, I finished Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and I have to say I did not love it. I know that what I was reading was a play and it wouldn’t be the same as the other books but I just didn’t like the story, I don’t think it was good and I don’t think it did justice to the rest of the series. By saying this I’m not undermining all the work they put into it, or the great writer that J.K. Rowling is, because she is amazing and an inspiration.
I just don’t thing they did the best job with the new stuff. Those 7 books have more than enough material to make an amazing continuation, but it seemed like the writers just wrote the first thing that came to mind. There were a lot of characters introduced in the beginning of the story but never seen again. Where they just forgotten? They try to solve the problem doing the same thing over and over again. There are so many spells, why did they always use the same ones?
I don’t want to say a lot more because I don’t want to spoil it for anybody, and if you read the other seven I recommend you read it and make your own opinion. Maybe you see other things I didn’t, or maybe actually seeing it live on stage is a totally different thing.

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
