Harry Potter and the Fantastic Beasts Logo Released

What is Headmaster J.K Rowling doing do us all ... The official logo for the 'Fantastic Beasts' movie which is to be released November 2016. As a fellow graphic designer the logo is so beautiful ♡

Here is the link to Pottermore for more information:


Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Yes, i'm slightly behind and i'm sure a good chunk of the world already knows about the instalment in the Harry Potter series. But ... EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! I CAN'T HELP BUT FANGIRL!

Instead of a film which we all wish, the addition will be a play. The play is based off of Harry Potter dealing with his past. And his son, Albus - struggling with his fathers legacy. The past and the future intertwine and both father and son confront dark secrets.

The release date is aimed for July 30th 2016. I'm sure everyone can't wait, I know I can't!! More details must be leaked or ...

Tiger's Curse By: Colleen Houck (Tiger Saga #1)

Tiger's Curse By: Colleen Houck (Tiger Saga #1)


Tiger's Curse follows 18 year old Kelsey Hayes - an ordinary girl trenching through her summer. She teams up with a mysterious white tiger named Ren heading face to face with dark forces in a mystical world to piece together a prophecy in order to break an ancient curse forever.


If you own the physical book then you'll know how gorgeous this cover. It has a beautiful metallic sheen to it. I honestly want all of the books in the series because of how beautiful they are lined up together. But any who, back to the story.

When you read the beginning the pacing is good. It did have the cliche introduction of characters. You have the heroine who is "chosen" to fulfill a prophecy/find their destiny. And you have the hot shot handsome love interest that is the finest of the land. When it comes to the dynamic and dialogue between the characters specifically Kelsey and Ren - just .. what. Pure awkwardness. I don't know if the aim was supposed to be quirky and adorable but the vibe I got was awkwardness:

“But it won’t work out.” I finished. There, it was out.
Ren looked confused. “Why not?”
“Because I’m too attracted to you.”
“I don’t understand what you are saying. How can your being attracted to me be a problem? I would think that’s a good thing.”
“For normal people… it is,” I stated.
“So I’m not normal?”
“No. Let me explain it this way. It’s like this… a starving man would gladly eat a radish, right? In fact, a radish would be a feast if that’s all he had. But if he had a buffet in front of him, the radish would never be chosen.”
Ren paused for a moment. “I don’t get it. What are you saying?”
“I’m saying…I’m the radish.”
“And what am I? The buffet?”
I tried to explain it further. “No…you’re the man. Now…I don’t really want to be the radish. I mean, who does? But I’m grounded enough to know what I am, and I am not a buffet. I mean, you could be having chocolate éclairs for heaven’s sake.”
“But not radishes.”


What initially drew my attention was the unique background - Indian folklore entwined with fantasy. As the story progressed the story itself started to go downhill. The story really had potential and I have to admit I had moments where I was like:

But that slowly dissipated halfway through the book. It seemed like there were just too many unnecessary details that weighed down the story, which I ended up pulling myself through the book to finish it.

I really wanted to love this book but it fell short. I may give the second book a chance, but I have a feeling I might not be able to pick it up anytime soon.

Overall,  If you don't mind a story with very many details and cheesy eye-rolling scenes  but also an unique concept involving indian culture, a mystical world, and adventure then this is a read for you.

I wrapped the unyielding woman I loved in my arms & kissed her slowly, hoping that some part of her would sense my absolute devotion.”
