Recently, my sister Emily and I went on an early birthday trip to London. We had a whole Harry Potter weekend planned: day 1 was the Warner Bros Studio Tour in Leavesden, and day 2 was a visit to the Harry Potter: A History of Magic exhibition at the British Library. They were both such fun days and even though we were exhausted, it was so worth it!
This was actually my third trip to the Studio Tour. I’ve been once when it was just a regular day, once when it was all Christmassy, and this time, it was close to Halloween so they were celebrating everything Dark Arts.
It’s hard to believe it’s been over a week since YALC finished already. I still can’t stop telling people about it and my new-found love for Juno Dawson. <3 I’ve written a post about the books I got while I was there, but I still need to write a post all about what I did and who I met. I’ll get around it soon, I promise!
For now, I’m welcoming my pal Sarah from The Little Contemporary Corner to tell you all about her YALC best bits. Over to you, Sarah!
This isn’t Charlotte, I have been given the rights to the blog for today to tell you all about my YALC experience. As most of you must know by now, me and Charlotte both attended YALC this year together and had a wonderful bonding weekend over a lot of pasta and running.
This weekend was one of my favourite weekends in AGES. It’s Monday morning, I got back late last night, and I want to go straight back again. I miss YALC already 🙁
To make myself feel better, I’m going to share my haul with you!
I did all three days and it’s the first time that I’ve ever been to a whole convention. I loved it so much! I managed to bag so much free stuff, buy some great books, and meet (and fall in love with) some amazing authors. In the next few posts, I’m going to write all about my YALC experience. I’ll split it up into my haul, what I did there, and my tips for first-time YALCers. This first post will be all about the stuff I managed to get over the three days!

Publication Date: 31st July 2016
Publisher: Little, Brown UK
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.
