Waiting on Wednesday (33)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly awaiting.

The Casual Vacancy
by J.K Rowling
Expected Publication: September 27th, 2012

Summary:
When Barry Fairweather dies in his early forties, the town of Pagford is left in shock.

Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but 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?

Fans all over the world are holding their breaths for this book! Rowling's first release since Harry Potter, and it's an adult book! For those of us that grew up reading Harry Potter it's absolutely perfect! Her last story was one that will be loved and revered for ages, and rightly so. I cannot wait to see what she brings us next!! I am more than sure it will be something wonderful! :D

What are you waiting on?

  1. The blurb doesn't really grab me, so I'll probably be waiting to see what people say. But I'm sure it will be a page-turner nonetheless!

    1. The blurb is kind of vague, but I'll definitely be reading it just on the grounds of who wrote it :).
