Waiting On Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill  that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.  I'm excited to be back and participating in this meme!  My choice this week is:

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.

Expected release date: September 27, 2012

I can't wait for this book!  I'm sure we are all wondering how this will be compared to her Harry Potter series.  If it's anything like it, it will be the next big hit.  

What are you waiting to read?



  1. I didn't know J.K. Rowling was writing another book! I don't know if this is really my type of book but I might give it a try since J.K. Rowling is awesome haha.

  2. Awesome pick! I'm not too excited about it though, it sounds too serious!

    My WoW!

  3. This does sound interesting!
