Read your book and eat it, too!

I’d like to think that every book lover wants a personal book cake. I, for one, would love to have my favorite books immortalized not only in my head but also in my taste buds. 🙂 My sweet tooth and book lust have finally found the perfect home in these customized cakes! They’re too beautiful to eat, though. 🙂 Nonetheless, I’m sure it’s worth devouring every single bite the same way books are worth relishing every single page. Enjoy! 🙂

NEW: The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling

I’m really excited about this! I must confess first that I haven’t read any of the Harry Potter novels. I mean, I plan to at some point in my reading life. Haha! What I’ve always wanted was to read a J.K. Rowling novel for adults and tadaaaaa!!!! She finally wrote one for fiction fanatics like me!!! YAY! 😀

Here’s the press release of Little Brown for her new book:

Little, Brown Book Group announces that the new novel for adults by J.K. Rowling is entitled The Casual Vacancy.  The book will be published worldwide in the English language in hardback, ebook, unabridged audio download and on CD on Thursday 27th September 2012.

The Casual Vacancy

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.

The Casual Vacancy 
480 pages (approximately)
ISBN  9781408704202   (hardback) price £20.00
ISBN  9781405519229   (ebook) price £11.99

BLOGGER’S NOTE: The Harry Potter series is in my reading list this year. This is because I vowed not to read it until the 7th book is released and the final movie is shown. 🙂
