My thoughts:

As of last year (2018, US) and two years ago (2017 UK) it’s been 20 years since the release of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. The two decades that followed the first book’s publication saw a beloved series follow suit and whirlwind fandom fall in love with it. Rowling has continued to keep the fire burning, too, by releasing new novels, gamesmusicals, and films like Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. It seems she doesn’t plan to stop expanding the Potterverse anytime soon.

So here we are again! All this is about a very well-known magical story. Harry Potter books contain some Gothic elements, such as an atmosphere of mystery and suspense, some inexplicable - all about magic - events, supernatural creatures and occurrences such as prophecies and visions. Young people love it! Potterheads and new readers will be tuned, for sure.

In sum, the Harry Potter magical novels are mesmerising page turners. I highly recommend them for any age group of students. Teachers, schools, teachers  must prepare for the new great moment. Your students will want to read the new ebooks!
