Did you hear, did you hear?
J. K. Rowling's first novel for adults is going to be called The Casual Vacancy! And the wait is not that long at all! It's out on the 27th of Sepetember 2012. Sure, that's months away but sooner than I thought it would take to read a new book by Rowling! I thought it would be ten years or never.
Seeing the release date and blurb made my day! It sounds very intriguing and I'd read anything she writes anyway! Blurb of The Casual Vacancy:
When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little 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?
Expected publication: September 27th 2012
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company
SQUEEAL. It's starting again! The anticipation and the feeling that oh my god, I can't wait! Sure, I expected a quirkier title but it still sounds fabulous! J. K. Rowling has the power to make everything else that's going on in your life seem so insignificant as it's so easy to get lost in the world she creates! Which is why I know that despite The Casual Vacancy being nothing like the Harry Potter series, it is going to be magical in its own way!
How psyched are you about The Casual Vacancy?
