The Casual Vacancy

Yeah, not for a while.

So I finally go around to putting JK Rowling's new book, The Casual Vacancy, on hold at the library but it doesn't look like I'll be reading it any time soon. I am number 1341 in the waiting list.

The strange thing is that the library apparently only has 75 copies. Like, this is JK Rowling, who wrote the Harry Potter books, who is pretty much a legend and you didn't expect the next thing she publishes to be in extremely high demand? If the Percy Jackson series needs over 100 copies, then JK Rowling's grocery list will need over 100 copies, nevermind and actual new book written by her. This just confuses me. (ALSO: No offense Percy Jackson fans & Rick Riordan, I love the series but the fanbase is not even comparable to HP's.)

Back to the actual book, I'm not dying from not being able to read it right-now-at-this-very-second-and-no-sooner-or-else-bad-things-that-I-can't-bring-to-mind-will-happen because it's written for adults so I don't know what that will entail and the subject, to be honest, doesn't really draw me in. I am a teenager, therefore I read teen books. Adult books have never really been a thing for me unless you count the random neuroscience books on synesthesia and left-handedness and other interesting mind things that I read from time to time. (It's really interesting, ok? I can feel you judging me...) So I'm not sure whether the style of writing will appeal to me or whatever the difference is between adult and teen novels.

I will end up reading The Casual Vacancy and I'll see if I like it but I don't have mega high hopes and I can wait however long that is necessary until I get my hands on it. The end.
