Waiting on Wednesday (57)

This week, I'm waiting on...

The Casual Vacancy by J. K. Rowling. Here's what Goodreads has to say: 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?

I mean, it's by J. K. Rowling, so I'm not really sure what else there is to say! What do you think of this book? What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

We're definitely eager to see what Rowling's new book is like. Do we expect to love it like Harry Potter? No way. But we respect Rowling immensely as a storyteller, and we're rooting for another good book. :)
