A word from HP world

To all of the Harry Potter fans out there.

The 7th and the last book of the HP series “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” will be released on 21st July this year.

And the big news for now is that HP covers are released. You can have a look at them in,

This is what the inside flap says.

“In this final, seventh installment of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling unveils in spectactular fashion the answers to the many questions that have been so eagerly awaited. The spellbinding, richly woven narrative, which plunges, twists and turns at a breathtaking pace, confirms the author as a mistress of storytelling, whose books will be read, reread and read again.”

But it’ll bring happy and sad feelings to all HP fans, Happy because they will have the chance to know answers to many riddles that were arised in previous books and sad because this will be the end of the series.
