Well people....its almost here. The moment we've all been waiting for!
No, not the apocalypse....
The release of J.K. Rowling's new book! A Casual Vacancy makes it's appearance this Thursday! Yes yes I'm a Harry Potter fanatic and this is not going to be a Harry Potter book, I know :( ....sigh...
But I'm still excited! I'm working very hard to maintain my expectations, I know it won't have the same, pardon the pun, "magic" as Harry and the gang, but good ol' Jo is a dang fine writer, so I'm expecting it to be a dang fine book. The plot doesn't exactly catch my eye, but if her characters are half as engaging in The Casual Vacancy as HP, I'll be a happy girl. We'll see!
Unfortunately I'm not going to get to read it right away because the list price is just a touch above my budget. I'm a stay at home mom of two kids in married student housing of a major University up to my eyeballs in medical debt from kid #1 and student loans from husband, so yeah.... I'm too broke to shell out the 35 bucks :) But I've got a library card and I ain't afraid to use it people!
So what are your thoughts?
Are you looking forward to the book?
Do you care at all?
Is it a tad too pricy to you or are you too excited to care?
