I’ve been a Harry Potter fan since I received my first book on Easter 1999. Admitedly, it took me a while to get passed the first three chapters. But once I did… I was sucked into the world of Harry Potter.
At the very end of the Harry Potter series — not just the book, but the movie series, too — I was distraught. A book that meant so much to me and was my escape has now come to an end. Where do I go from here?
I had Post-Potter Depression. And believe me, it’s a real thing.
But now… an eighth book is being released and I don’t know how to contain myself. J.K. Rowling has confirmed that Harry Potter and The Cursed Child will be released as an eighth book on the birthday of herself and Harry Potter.
The CEO of Little Brown Book Group UK, David Shelley, said of the announcement:
We are so thrilled to be publishing the script of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. J.K. Rowling and her team have received a huge number of appeals from fans who can’t be in London to see the play and who would like to read the play in book format – and so we are absolutely delighted to be able to make it available for them.
I don’t know about you, but I’m dusting off my Hogwarts robe for the midnight release.
Your Fellow Ravenclaw,
