J.K. Rowling's New Novel

It looks like we are going to get a new novel from J. K. Rowling:


The author of the mega-selling "Harry Potter" series has an agreement with Little, Brown in the United States and Britain to publish her first novel for grownups. The title, release date and details about the novel, long rumored, were not announced Thursday.

I thought that the HP series was for grownups...and that it just worked out that kids liked the early books. Frankly, I would not have let my kids who were younger than 14 read the last two books.  I think that they were much too dark for young minds.  Can't wait for a new book!

Re: J.K. Rowling's New Novel

I'm very tempted to pre-order this. I know it won't be Harry Potter, and it's the signal that the series is definitely over, and that makes me very sad and nostalgic since I literally grew up with the series (bought the first book when I was 10). At the same time, I thought she did such a good job with Harry Potter that I really would love to see what she does with this.

Re: J.K. Rowling's New Novel

I am also thinking of pre-ordering the book as well.  J. K. Rowling is an AWESOME author.  The job she did on all the Harry Potter Books is OUTSTANDING! 


Even though the new books are nothing like the Harry Potter Series, I am looking forward to getting the books; because J. K. Rowling is a gifted author.


I really wish J. K. Rowling would have continued with the Harry Potter Series.  I was hooked from the first book all the way through the last one.  You know you have a good series when all you think about is when the next book will be coming to the store, so you can be held captive by the author once more!
