Waiting on Wednesday

I am beyond proud of myself. I have found a book that will soon be released that I want to read. I haven't forgotten about it, but managed to remember it for today! So, here we go. WoW is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.

 The book I am waiting for is 'The Casual Vacancy' by J.K. Rowling.
Pub. date: 27th September 2012
Publisher: Little, Brown (UK), Hachette Bookgroup (US)



The Casual VacancyWhen Barry Fairbrother dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Seemingly an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils…Pagford is not what it first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations? 
Blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising, The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling’s first novel for adults.
I am really looking forward to this book because I cannot wait to see whether Rowling is able to write for adults as well. Throughout the Harry Potter series we have seen her develop from a children's author to teenagers and young adults. I always felt she dealt with mature themes very well and therefore I'd love to read this book.
So, what are you waiting for?

  4. I'm not quite sure if I'm going to like it based on the blurb either (like another person who commented), but I definitely will be reading it just because JK Rowling wrote it and I can't wait to see what it's going to be like. :)

    My Wow Post!

  7. I'm still not sure if I want to read this one. I would only read it because it's J.K. Rowling. Don't like the cover and the synopsis just isn't my thing :( Well, I'll always have Harry Potter :)
