It would certainly be cool to be able to read more about the children of the trio, but I wouldn't hold my breath for it. From all I have heard, she isn't interested in doing a follow up series.

Personally I wouldn't like to have an 8th book that much. I think the story was pretty well rounded and even though it would be awesome to see the next generation, the story of the Potters could go on forever and if it was forced, then we (the fans) wouldn't enjoy it that much. I'd much prefer buying and reading a lexicon or something of sorts and get more in depth information on the characters like Minerva McGonagall, Albus Dumbledore and more minor ones.

I am totally torn....

On the one hand, I desperately want another series.... On the other, I just want textbooks. I just wanna feel like a Hogwarts student.

I WANT BOTH!!

(Speaking of.... JKR said on her Twitter that she is writing something out this year... and I heard rumors of "Albus Severus and the Lost Prophecy".... May wanna check those out.... see how much of rumors they are...)

As much as I don't like to disappoint you, JK Rowling's official site says the following:
"J.K. Rowling is to publish a new novel for adults. Further details will be announced later in the year."

And with a scribly-font in the bottom right corner of that said site there is a statement that Rowling shared:
"Although I've enjoyed writing it just as much, my next novel will be very different from the Harry Potter series."

So sadly, at least for the time being, we aren't getting more HP-related material. But at least we are getting more stuff written by Rowling so all is well in the world. *nods* :)

So basically according to a site (and it's tumblr), I was muggled... It mentioned Albus Severus and a Very convincing plotline... And I loved it... But yeah, not true.

As long as we are getting books from JKR, I am totally thrilled with that! I know that what ever she writes will be amazing. Her mind is so creative!!! :)

I really want a new book. I want to know the story of James, Siruis, Remus, Severus and Lily. And I also would absolutely love a book about Harry Potter's children. But I can't wait ten years, I want more books now.

I wish she'd write a book on the Founders - there's so much there she could include. So much background, history, angst. How Godric and Salazar were once friends, how the friendship ended and Salazar left, Helena's jealousy of her mother and stealing the diadem and later losing her life, how the Sorting Hat was charmed, the first Hogwarts students....

I know that JK Rowling had recently finished writing a complete biography of Remus Lupin, I don't know whether she will publish it but I would absolutely love if she wrote more books like how she did with Tales of Beedle the Bard, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them etc.

Oh so many great potential stories the she could tell us.

I really love the idea of a series about the founding of Hogwarts, I hope she decides to publish the Remus Lupin biography. I would adore a book about the Marauders' Era Hogwarts and the first war. A Lupin biography? Why not the biography of Severus Snape as well? Or Lily? What about the lives of Harry's professor's I would love to read about Minerva's time as a young woman. ,And then there is the sequel material she provided in the epilogue. I would to learn more about the next generation especially Albus Severus, he has already stolen a piece of my heart. So utterly adorable. So many other potential ways to flesh the world of Harry Potter. It would be amazing!

Oh completely forgot to add.

I do really love the idea of a Harry Potter Encyclopedia or some fun textbooks. I would never turn them down and would be grateful for them. However, if I have my druthers I'd like to see a new series.

If she will write more books, I think it would be really cool if they were written in the Marauder era or the new generation!!!!! :D
This is totally awesome!
