"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling
To be released September 27.
I need to admit that if this book wasn't written by the great J.K. Rowling of Harry Potter fame, it probably wouldn't have caught my attention. For starters, it's a book for adults, whereas I usually do the majority of my check-outs in the teen room. Secondly, the summary (below) doesn't sound like my type of thing. The politics of a small town? Probably not something I'm even interested in in real life. BUT, I simply adored the Harry Potter books and admire J.K. Rowling's writing, so I'll give it a try.
