Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme highlights some of the books whose releases bloggers are most anticipating this year.
This week I’m hotly anticipating…
|The Casual Vacancy by J.K. RowlingExpected publication: September 27th 2012 by Little, Brown and Company
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?
To be honest, I think the cover sucks, but it is a J.K. Rowling book and being a devouted fan, how can I not read it? I’m super excited for this and I don’t care about my pledge not to buy any more books, this is one I will be out there to buy!!
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
