Calling all Harry Potter fans! You're in for a treat! J.K Rowling has recently announced the release of four new books based on the wizarding world. The first two of the four books are to be revealed on Pottermore, the "digital heart" of all muggles, on June 27th and we're all pretty damn excited!
After the final book was published in 2007, over 10 years ago, Rowling's announcement has peaked the interest of every single Harry Potter fanatic and we just can't wait for the first glimpse of the new books!
I can assure you, they're not going to be just any average read.
We found ourselves becoming obsessed with everything associated with the franchise, wanting to see how all the characters developed over the course of the story.
And it was turned into a play, too!

It was called Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and told the story of the original characters and their children after The Deathly Hallows.
After all the amazing Harry Potter content that already exists, we can't believe there's even more to come!
And Twitter is going crazy over the announcement!
Waaaaait. Is it true that JK Rowling’s gonna release 4 more Harry Potter stories next month?! 😱😱😱— Aly🌙🌸 (@Aly🌙🌸)1559214731.0
Rowling gave us little hints as to what the books will be about via Pottermore.

They will be released as short eBooks, centerd around the lessons taught at Hogwarts including, "Charms," "Defence Against the Dark Arts," (which is my personal favorite), "Potions," "Divination" and many more!
Just when we thought that it was all over...

This series aims to delve deeper into the history of Hogwarts and the magic that it possesses.
Excited? So are we!
They are said to be the perfect read for the train or "whatever muggle transport you prefer."
