Wishlist Wednesday #8: The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling

This meme was created by Pen to Paper. Each week we will share a book that has been recently added to our wishlist or has been on it for ages. I’m taking this loosely and sharing books that I can’t wait to read.

I know I’m going to be disappointed by this, and it’s taking me a long time to get to The Casual Vacancy because of that, but I just can’t let a book by JK Rowling be left unread. I’m hoping that since I have low expectations it will be enjoyable. Hopefully I’ll get to it sometime soon!

Title: The Casual Vacancy
Author: JK Rowling
Publisher: Little, Brown
Hardcover: 503 pages
Summary (taken from Goodreads):

When Barry Fairbrother 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?
