J.K. Rowling is publishing 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' as a book
J.K Rowling's Harry Potter sequel may be a stage play, but that doesn't mean you can't read it at home.

On July 31, Rowling will publish the script for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in print and ebook format, making the story accessible to everyone who can’t make it to the theatrical version in London’s West End.

Pottermore announced Wednesday that Rowling will publish a “special rehearsal edition” of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which takes place nine years after the seventh Harry Potter book, and stars a new cast of adult actors as Harry, Ron, and Hermione. The first edition comes out shortly after the play’s London premiere, and will later be updated with a “definitive collector’s edition.” (Like most new plays, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child may go through some minor changes during its preview period, before its official opening.)

Are you a fan of Harry Potter? Have you read the books so much you know them by heart? Or perhaps you’ve only watched the movies and never tried the books? or you are just curious about them? No matter where your stand, you are invited now to join our online Harry Potter readalong!!

This event aims to let us all read together the seven (don’t be scared) books of the Harry Potter saga, so we can finish them right before the release in theaters of Fantastic Beasts!

How does it work? easy! Every week, we’ll follow a schedule of chapters to read together, and you’ll be invited to contribute to the readalong with prompts. Any form of art is welcome: fanfics, fancasts, poems, drawings, discussions, jewelry, knitting, really EVERYTHING! If you don’t want to participate and just read, that’s completely fine too!

The readalong will officially start on March 6th, but til then, we’ll publish different posts with useful informations or free activities to keep you waiting :)

You may want to follow the readalong blog and track the tag #harrypotterreadalong to be sure you are not missing anything!

Soon will come more details on the readalong, but in the meantime, don’t hesitate to send us your questions/suggestions :)

Let the magic begins…

Hey guys! I am in a really tough position right now: I’m a fulltime college student, totally broke and I need to help my family not only with my own expensives (I need a laptop to study and draw :c) but also with theirs until my mom finds a new job. This is my first time doing commissions so please forgive me if miss anything!

You can see more examples of my artwork here. Check my Instagram too if you want!

If interested email me at luzhanahp@gmail.com OR message me here on tumblr!

If not interested, please SIGNAL BOOST/REBLOG THIS and I’ll love you forever <3

I’m having a lot of feelings lately about the nostalgic Harry Potter fandom (The pre-tumblr days!).


Shoutout to all of the old, bizarre, theories that the Harry Potter fandom came up with (while the books were still coming out). The theories that were posted on message boards and were discussed with so much detail that we were all convinced that they were going to happen in the later books.

It’s 12:26 AM and I can’t remember them all but some of my favorites were:

• Ron was really a time-traveling, de-aged, Dumbledore.

• Crookshanks was an Animagus.

• Fred Weasley was going to turn out to be the evil twin.

• Petunia was a witch.

• I can’t remember the specifics but there were a lot of theories about what was going to happen to Ginny since Jo once mentioned that she was the seventh child of the seventh child. (Boy did that turn out to be anticlimactic.)

• Harry had a twin.

• Snape was really Regulus in disguise.

• The Giant Squid was really Godric Gryffindor.

Harry Potter Girls by chuwenjie on DeviantArt.com. Harry Potter girls! My favorite character is probably Bellatrix, but Ginny Weasley.. aghhhh I could draw her all day long! I included Cho and Tonks at the bottom partly cause they never get enough attention, and partly cause I didn’t like the way they were portrayed in the movies.

Her breath receded her; she would choke on air in her throat as she tried to inhale. She was overwhelmingly dizzy, as though she were on a rollercoaster ride. Muscles tensed, skin trembled, sweat glistened upon her pores. Her heart pumped the blood deafeningly in her ears and she hyperventilated, cornered like a deer trapped in the headlights. 

Her cacophobia made her detest the way she looked, but she would never let anyone know that. Externally, she was as vain and narcissistic as a girl could be.
