    Default The Casual Vacancy

    Have you run out and bought this book? I'm so sad I don't get paid till tomorrow so will have to wait...

    I was one of those people who lined up outside bookshops for Harry potter and I can't wait to see what her new book is like!

    I was talking to a friend about this one today (I haven't bought it yet), and she said she had high hopes for it, but was finding it hard to get into (up to chapter 5) as the characters were still getting developed. Saw it in Big W today for $20

    I got it at Big W for $20

    I am finding it a little hard to get into too, but I'm not sure if that's the book or just me at the moment with so much going on..

    I just finished it. Found it pretty hard to get into, but I persevered and after the 8th or so chapter I really wanted to keep reading.
    I was a little :O at some of the content....she's supposed to write about magic!!! :P

    I got it on my Kobo when it came out. But haven't had time to sit and have a proper read so have only read a few chapters.

    Oh I've been wondering whether or not to buy it.

    I'm not looking for a new Harry Potter, but I think she is a lovely writer.. I'm just afraid of disappointment!
