Harry Potter fans were devastated when the seven-book saga came to an end, but it’s obvious now that they had no reason to me. With plays like The Cursed Child to the Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them movie, the Potter Universe continues to expand all the time. And now, fans have even more to look forward to.
Bloomsbury, the publishing house that brought the world Harry Potter, just announced two new books to the franchise.

The first is called Harry Potter — A History of Magic, and it’ll explore the different subjects taught at Hogwarts, including Herbology and Alchemy. That’s right — everything about your favorite classes will be found in the pages of this book. Basically, you’re going to be a Hogwarts student once you finish it. How’s that for your childhood fantasy finally being realized?
The second book, Harry Potter, A Journey Through the History of Magic will talk about the history of magic itself and will be “packed with unseen sketches and manuscript pages from J.K. Rowling.”
Needless to say, we’re stoked.

Honestly, these books are going to bring out our inner Hermiones, and we’re so ready.
So when I read and subsequently memorize the new Harry Potter History of Magic book will I have reached peak Hermione status?
