Waiting on Wednesday

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

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
 
 
The Casual Vacancy 
 
Title: The Casual Vacancy
Author: J.K. Rowling
Release Date: September 27th by Little Brown and Company
 
Description: When Barry Fairbrother 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?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Who isn't excited for this.  It's J.K. Rowling!!   I hope my expectations aren't too high.

  6. I featured this one last week. I'm excited about JK Rowling having another book coming out, but I'm alittle nervous about this one. I'll definitely read it eventually. Great pick!
