Will You Read J.K. Rowling's New Book?

As many of you might have heard, J.K. Rowling is writing a new book! She tweeted about it this past Friday.

According to her and her new publisher, Litte Brown, the book will be very different than her Harry Potter series and is geared toward an adult audience.

My question to you is: Will you read it? And, if so, what are your expectations?. There are some rumors that her newest book will be a crime thriller set in Edinburgh. What do you think of that?!

Personally, I think it’s tough on J.K. Rowling all around. There are so many high expectations after her blockbuster series. I’m not one to read a ton of crime thrillers, but I will drop everything to read anything else J.K. ever writes!

Please share your thoughts/reactions in the comments! :)

I'm a hardcore lover of young adult fiction and have been reviewing books since 2011. Other interests include Downton Abbey, heat lightning storms, Harry Potter land and (begrudingly) one orange tabby.

    I think I’ll probably wait until I’ve read some reviews on it, so I go in with realistic expectations. If not, I’ll probably be looking for an HP cameo the entire time! lol

    Oh, yes. I would read this book even it was HOW TO FIX YOUR AIR CONDITIONER IN TEN EASY STEPS. Or A HISTORY OF LARVAE IN NORTHERN IRELAND.

    I’m so excited about it. I don’t really have any expectations other than it being good. My fear is that there’s going to be so much hype surrounding this book because it’s JK Rowling, that it’s not going to be able to live up to it and kill any chance of her continuing her writing career. I hope that doesn’t happen! And, I hope this book is really good.

    I’d read a trashy romance novel written by J.K. Rowling, so I’m definitely reading this one. (I’m definitely with Rae on this!)

    It’ll be hard to get past the ‘what if it’s ‘Harry: The Grown-Up Years’ hopes, but it can be done. We already know she’s an incredibly talented writer, so I have no worries that this will be every bit as amazing, even if it’s totally different.

    Of course I’ll be reading it, unless it’s erotica, or something like that, lol. Only if she writes in a genre that is something I refuse to read will I refuse to read her new book. Otherwise, I’m excited to see what type of adult fiction she’s imagined up for us.
