Potterheads are overjoyed with the news that author J.K. Rowling has revealed that she will be releasing four brand new Potter-related books next month. It is said that each new book will be based upon subjects that are taught to students at Hogwarts.
The upcoming releases will be e-books and Rowling claims that she came up with the idea following the audiobook and British exhibition Harry Potter: A History of Magic in 2017. The new publications will follow the three e-books which have already been published, and the theater production Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
