Waiting On Wednesday #2


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

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




Goodreads 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?

The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling’s first novel for adults.


Many people seem to have mixed feelings about The Casual Vacancy. But hey, it is a J. K. Rowling book after all, and I'm sure it'll be great! I'm really looking forward to reading this one. :)

I would like to know what's your Waiting On Wednesday!

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

    I'm in two minds about this one, because it really doesn't sound like something I'd enjoy. On the other hand, JKR! I think I'll get a cheap copy after it's been out for a while.

  8. I've been seeing this one around. I am nervous about it, but I will try my hardest not to compare it to HP because it's nothing like it.

    Great choice. New GFC follower. :]
