Harry Potter: A Journey Through Divination and Astronomy

In the third Harry Potter book, we might get to learn a few new things about the positioning of planets and how they affect us.
Harry Potter: A Journey Through Care of Magical Creatures
In JK Rowling's Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, we learned about some amazing creatures from the magical world. In the upcoming book, we expect to understand more about them.
