JK Rowling Thinking About a Sequel to Harry Potter Series

funny cat picture

Keishon blogged that JK Rowling was interviewed for Time Magazine and dropped hints of a possible 8th harry Potter book. She appears wistful about the end of the series and might not ready to let go. The 8th book would feature a different central character than Harry but set in the same world. Her daughter is requesting more books and that might provide a greater influence on Rowling than any other fan. After all, who doesn’t want to give their kids more stories?

Unfortunately, if there is another Potter book, it wouldn’t be for years. According to the Daily Mail report, Rowling said it would be ten years before a sequel would make an appearance.

    Oh dear.

    Don’t do it Jo. You’ve already created enough plotholes to drop a universe into.

    J K Rowlings plays Sarah Conner in the movie Dear Frankie.
    Pity John Conner is deaf, he wouldn’t be able to hear the death eaters coming.

    If an 8th book was written i think it should take place from Albus Potter’s point of view. I also think J.K Rowling should leave the responsibility of the 8th book being written up to someone else but they would still have to follow guidelines so the book doesn’t become messed up like the movies.

    Voldemort is dead! Unless Rowling wants to conceive a new boogy man she has no central conflict. I loved the Harry Potter series but enough is enough. Rowling should construct a new universe or write in a new genre if she wants to continue her career. Otherwise she will sound like a broken record. Writing a completely unrelated novel could help the image of her questionable talent.

    I am one of Harry Potter’s biggest fans! I think she should write another series about The two Potter boys and about their adventures at Hogwarts. It doesn’t matter if Voldemort is dead. I was intruiged by the Epilouge at the end of the 6th book. The was no Voldemort in the Epilouge!

    I say it should be like, their kid’s first year at Hogwarts and if BIG if, it works out then maybe even make more than eight
