5 Things to Look Forward to After Harry Potter

Categories: Film
It is evident that few series (books or movies) will ever be able to achieve the popularity and esteem that the Harry Potter novels attained in the past years, and most certainly, none will be able to enchant readers quite like these novels did.

But fret not, HP fans, after the jump are 5 Things to Look Forward to Until J.K. Rowling Envisions Her Next Major Franchise . . .

1. Pottermore

Rowling rocked the HP world by announcing an all new website to be launched in October 2011. For the first time ever, audio and ebook versions of the Harry Potter series will be available for purchase. The site will also feature exclusive materials (more than 18,000 words) about the characters, places and objects of the franchise, and will be an interactive forum for readers to delve even further into the wizarding world. Members will be able to read as well as experience Harry's journey first-hand with online features that allow them to choose a wand, be sorted into a Hogwarts house, and even cast spells and mix potions. In the Youtube video announcing the website above, Rowling explained Pottermore as an "opportunity to say thank you [...to a] wonderful, diverse and loyal readership."

2. The Hunger Games

So it doesn't feature wizards or vampires but The Hunger Games trilogy, written by Suzanne Collins, is bound to keep readers entertained and enthralled. Set in a post-apocalyptic future, the book follows the story of Katniss Everdeen, a 16-year-old who enters a survival competition where she is forced to fight for her life in order to save those she loves. All three books have already been published and the first movie starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth is to be released next March.

Don't worry, muggles, reading other books will not make you a traitor to the Potter franchise. In fact, you might actually enjoy it.
