The Casual Vacancy, J.K Rowling’s new book, is out September 27th

The Casual Vacancy will be J.K Rowling's first novel since the Harry Potter series ended.

J.K Rowling’s publishers have today announced the title and release date for her upcoming novel. The Casual Vacancy, released September 27th 2012, will be Rowling’s first book release since out since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in 2007. The novel will no doubt be widely anticipated by Rowling’s legions of fans, who made the Harry Potter series the biggest selling book series of all time.  Along with the title and date, J.K Rowling’s publishers released a short plot summary to give fans a flavour of the book:

“When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little 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?

Blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising, The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling’s first novel for adults.”

Goodbye September, Hello October

Goodbye September, Hello October

What a month it has been! Seeing “Goodbye September, Hello October” trend on twitter has made me think about how quickly time goes now. Between starting school again, celebrating a multitude of birthdays (I’m now 19!) and anniversaries, as well as having anew business venture in the family, Septemeber has been a crazy month!

It’s crazy how the time just goes, one minute you’re ending the summer, thinking about all the work you are going to do and how hard-working your going to be, and the next minute its the end of the month and you’ve got nothing done.

From next week I’ve promised my self that I’m going to knuckle down and do work. Get UCAS sorted, get the grades and all that stuff. I’ll try to keep up with the blogging, though this month I haven’t done much blog-related

But not before a big celebration, becuase it’s my friends birthday’s today. Happy Birthday to Alex and Jess Parker! (They’re twins)

I hope everyone has had a wonderful month, and an even better October.
