Even if you write one of the most successful book series of the past century, it can still be hard getting your work published!

That's what J.K. Rowling proved when she was pitching new books under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith over the past few years.

The Harry Potter author previously revealed she wrote under the fake name because she wanted her future work to be unbiased and let it "stand or fall on its own merits."

And apparently, there was a lot more falling than standing, because Rowling shared with her fans a few of the rejection letters she got from publishers who weren't fans of Galbraith's work!

On Friday, the 50-year-old addressed a fan who had been rejected by a publisher, empathizing on Twitter:

Hermione always comes prepared!

Emma Watson may have not filmed a Harry Potter movie in quite some time, but she's still channeling her astute character!

The actress turned activist recently sat down with Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda to discuss (and freestyle about) her #HeForShe campaign.

But before they got to business, Miranda asked the 25-year-old if she could appease fans and sort the cast of his hit historical musical into the four Hogwarts Houses!

And even though the Broadway star tried to make it seem like this was a spontaneous bit, Watson whipped out a pen and paper with extensive notes — admitting that she had already done her homework!

Emma provided excellent reasoning as she sorted sisters Angelica and Eliza Schuyler and Aaron Burr.

But after she sorted Alexander Hamilton into Gryffindor, Miranda revealed that Daniel Radcliffe picked a different house for the title character!

We can never get too much Harry Potter!

Last week, J.K. Rowling took to Twitter to make a pretty AH-Mazing announcement about Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as she revealed the book won't be just one movie, but rather a trilogy!

While that's pretty exciting news, we've got an even BETTER announcement for fans of the HP books as a new series of four original stories titled The History of Magic in North America will debut on Pottermore — the author's interactive website — this week!

Not only that, but the stories will dive into previously unexplored areas of the Potterverse — in the United States!

The stories will give fans more background on Salem witch trials, the Native American legend of the skin-walkers, the Magical Congress of the United States of America, and of course the U.S. version of Hogwarts known as Ilvermorny.

We're guessing this info will help fans understand the world Newt Scamander (AKA Eddie Redmayne) will be entering when FBaWtFT hits theaters on November 18, 2016!

Happy World Book Day!

We love a good read — but not every book translates to the big screen!

The Hunger Games is an obvious high — though it kind of fell off toward the end… and Divergent and Percy Jackson have both gotten mixed reviews.

Find out which franchise was the absolute best adaptation — and which were so bad they never became a "series" at all…
