There is only one thing that could make me put aside my beloved textbooks this fall–new Harry Potter books.
In a surprise announcement J.K. Rowling revealed that there will be two new books released on October 21st 2017. This comes exactly 21 years after the first book, Harry Potter and the sorcerer’s stone, was released.
But what will the books be about? We already know that harry potter and the cursed child had a very conclusive ending. Well, do you remember the two spin-off books about quidditch and magical beasts? These will be similar to those, covering topics like ‘a history of magic’ that we all remember hermoine making various quotes from throughout the series.
Even though its not a continuation of the beloved story, many die-hard fans are ecstatic about another chance to step into the wizard world.
This comes after the announcement of two more movies planned to follow up the fantastic beasts release last christmas. I know i’m not complaining about this sudden surge of harry potter again. You will find me rereading the original books of Harry Potter long into the night to prepare for the release of these add on books.
The books also come right before the start of Halloween, so I wonder if we will see a resurgence of harry potter Halloween costumes worn by the youth. Which is one thing i miss about the 2000s, I was personally dressed as Harry Potter several times for Halloween:) Be sure to let me know in the comments if you have ever had a harry potter costume!
