J.K. Rowling's New Book-Title & Release Date

I have been eagerly awaiting this news since I heard about J.K. Rowling's new book back in February. Today Little Brown has released more information to tease us readers with! The novel will be called The Casual Vacancy and will be published on September 27. The plot is being called "blacky comic" and according to Publishers Weekly:

 "The novel is set in a small English town called Pagford, which comes undone after one of its denizens, a man in his early 40s named Barry Fairweather, unexpectedly dies. The event shakes the town and reveals the rampant unrest bubbling under the surface in the deceptively perfect hamlet."

Here's the link to the full release from Publishers Weekly

So now that we have more details, will you be reading the book? Honestly, I would read it even if was my least favorite genres! I can't be the only one!:)


  1. I am definitely planning to read it. It kind of sounds like something that fans of Major Pettigrew's Last Stand and similar books would enjoy. Don't know how many of her teen readers will go for it but I'm sure I'll like it.

  2. I probably will read it even though I don't usually have time to read an adult book. But I read the price is $35 for a hardcover. Ouch!

  3. Definitely read. At this point I'd take a chance on reading anything she published.


I love hearing from other readers! Share your thoughts and chime in!
