Welcome to Gaia! ::

I'm a little surprised/disappointed at the lack of topics on this matter. Is anyone else as excited about this as I am?
I am, but the book title sounds so plain

A review I read made it sound interesting.

I'm so excited I just can't even...

I'll read anything Jo Rowling writes. And since this is an adult novel about very un-magical things, I am most definitely going to check it out and see how she transitions from beloved YA author to daring new adult fiction writer.

I think it's precious that the original Harry Potter readers, when it was first published, are now adults themselves. It's like her books have grown up with her fans. heart

I thought so too, but the plot of the story sounds exciting.

Is anyone else going to pick it up today?

If it's available in the library some day, I'll probably look into borrowing a copy.

I was excited until I read what it was about... It doesn't quite seem to be my cup of tea.

I admit, I'm curious. I'm in no real hurry to read it but I believe I will eventually.
I pre-ordered it, then canceled the pre-order when I discovered it wasn't a fantasy book neutral
I'm an adult, but I prefer fantasy books, which I had expected this to be as it's J.K Rowling...
I bought the book yesterday and am only about 50 pages into it. It is a good book so far and I am happy I bought it. Although it is definitely not a book for kids. It uses swears and the things it describes are not for children's eyes. Other than that I love it heart

It's about a local election in a small town, interestingly.

I'm a big fantasy fan too. It'll be interesting to see how she does away from fantasy.

I saw it today, and was intrigued when I saw it was written by J.K. I picked it up and flipped through it for a few minutes. I was disappointed that there was really nothing of interest on any of the pages I skimmed. I think it will only sell because her name has become a staple. However, her career is in serious jeopardy if she doesn't come up with something fresh soon. Not that it matters, she can easily live off the royalties from HP for the rest of her life. How I envy her success...

I'm hoping to get it from the library without having to buy it, but I'm doubtful if I ever get it. There's too many holds on it. xD
