JK Rowling's Writing An Adult Novel?


If you guys haven't heard yet, J.K. Rowling is writing a new (get this...) adult novel. Holy Freakin' Crap! I don't know about you guys, but I literally peed in my pants a little when I read this. She is by far one of my favorite authors and is also one of those "I'm not holding back, anything goes" kind of writers. Needless to say, I love her!

Not much has been announced about her book, such as what it's about, the publication date, etc, but apparently more will be revealed later this year. You can read more about it here and here.

What do you guys think? Excited it's an adult novel? What do you think I'll be about? Harry Potter: The Grown-Up Years? We can only hope so!

  1. I don't think it will be about Harry and the gang sadly but if it's set in the same world I would be completely satisfied ^_^. Or if its a fantasy/paranormal I'll be happy too. I am so excited! I hope later this year doesn't mean October - December.

  2. I a really excited for her to write a new book. I forgot where I read it, but I heard it will be an adult crime thriller. It won't have anything to do with HP at all. Don't know how much truth there is to that. The internet has exploded with speculation since hearing she is writing an adult novel.

  3. I wish it could be a new HP book. Sadly its going to be a whole different story, but knowing JK Rowling its going to be an amazing story. I am so excited! New Follower :) HP was the series that caused me to enjoy reading. I found a funny slide show on huffingtonspost a few days ago about this.

  5. @Rachel - Thanks for sharing the link that was an enjoyable slide show xD. @Amy - I am hoping crime thriller is just a rumour, I don't like crime thrillers o.o and I think it would have been all over the net if the genre was confirmed.

  6. I am spamming you're comments Lena, looks like J.K's site (which had a lot of HP elements) is being redesigned and will be back and new in the Spring, hopefully it'll give some clues into the new book :) http://www.jkrowling.com/

  7. Oh goodness, I really hope it's not a crime thriller. I'm just not into that genre, lol. Harry Potter fights crime. Nice.

    I think they said they'd release more info later this year, but they didn't give specifics. I'm sure when they do, the internet will be filled with news about it.

    Yay, so glad others are just as excited as me, even though it took me forever to learn about this. :-P

  8. I love that picture! I think it's great JK is writing more, and an adult book is such a departure, it would be even MORE awesome...especially since the fans who grew up with Harry Potter are adults themselves now. :)
