It's currently 1 am and I am STILL debating whether or not I should order The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling. I've been debating for a while now (since early April) because I want to borrow from the library first , however, there is already 50+ hold on the pre-order copy. REALLY?! And... so I finally ordered it (because le bf is annoyed with my indecisiveness and urge me to press that "pay" button on Amazon)
Anyways, I can't wait till September 27th! Please come sooner! I can't wait for another...four months!
Summary from Goodreads and Chapters:
When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little 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.
empty seat left by Barry on the town''s 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
[insert fangirl excitement and giddy-ness here] Even the summary sound epic! Off to sleep. Good night everyone!
