If you are still curled up in a ball and crying because Harry Potter has officially come to end, and you need a fix ASAP, you’re in luck! J.K. Rowling has announced that she is going to release a new book entitled The Casual Vacancy. Now, it’s not Harry Potter related at all which is devastating for all of us I know , but at least we have some J.K. back in our lives. We have to look on the bright side, Potterheads.
She seems to be going in a different direction with this new novel which seems to written more towards adult readers. For the most part, J.K.’s fan base is twenty-somethings who grew up with the Potter series and now look back with nostalgia and joy at the wonderful world of Harry Potter. For a lot of us, she was our childhood. It seems that this new novel is definitely is not for kids. According to her publisher’s website, The Casual Vacancy tells the story of a man named Barry Fairweather who “dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock.”
I think it’s cool that J.K. is taking a different route with this book and exploring other areas. She couldn’t write about wizards forever (even though we wish she would).
What do you guys think about her new book? Will you read it?
