Archives - Teenreads Monthly Update

We are officially less than 10 days from the release of HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD --- or roughly 9 days, 14 hours and 30 minutes at the time of writing this newsletter, but who’s counting? Scholastic got the party started early today with a good old-fashioned #MuggleMob outside of their offices in SoHo, New York. About 300 employees gathered in a flash mob to read from Harry Potter books and give away free copies of the previous books in the series while music from the movies played in the background. I’m sad to say that I wasn’t on the scene, but my Twitter feed gave me major FOMO --- you can see some pictures above.

I can't believe it's already July --- or, as I like to call it, Harry Potter month! We've been totally buzzing about reuniting with our favorite wizard, but that also made me think about the joys of binge-reading a series and getting totally swept up in a new world full of exciting characters. I know some of you may not be the biggest Harry Potter fans (muggles, the lot of you), so I decided to create a little list of other binge-worthy series for your summer reading.
