Waiting on Wednesday (#3)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted over at Breaking the Spine.

It's all about highlighting the book(s) we can't wait to be released!!

Okay, here's one book I'm looking forward to reading:


The Casual Vacancy(Summary from Amazon)

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 fa├žade 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 WHY:  Okay. So. I plan on buying and devouring (hopefully smoothly with no feeling of indigestion) this book for one reason and one reason only. The amazing, talented, magical genius that is J.K. Rowling. It's no small secret that my favorite series in the history of forever is Harry Potter. This is J.K.'s first novel for adults. I guess I'm an adult.. sometimes. I don't like the cover or  the title and if this book was written by anyone else I would pass it right by after reading the summary. BUT it's J.K. FREAKING ROWLING. And I optimistically believe she will not let me down. Even though this book doesn't contain quidditch, butterbeer or house elves (that we know of...). LET ME AT IT!

To be released September 27th!!

  1. I personally won't be reading this as despite being a Rowling fan (massive Harry Potter fan) it sounds like something I would not enjoy!
