The Cuckoo's Calling-JK Rowling's secret book!

Saturday, July 13, 2013

I am sure most of you may have already seen this.. but here is JK Rowling's secret book that came out in April. She used a pseudonym name.  I am surprised it didn't stay secret longer but in the days of the internet I suppose secrets don't last.   “Being Robert Galbraith has been such a liberating experience,” Rowling said.  “It has been wonderful to publish without hype and expectation and pure pleasure to get feedback under a different name.”  I look forward to picking this up and checking it out!! Has anyone read it before you knew it was JK Rowling?


  1. Never heard of it before. She's right about people's expectations of her work, though.

  2. It's not a fantasy book.

    Why won't she return to fantasy? GAH!

  3. Blogger won't let me reply to comments today so I'll just reply here. I wish it was a fantasy book too. I just want her to do a new fantasy series!!! NOW!!!

  4. Wha?? Well done JK Rowling - I'm glad she's gotten some honest feedback on it! Not the kind of book I usually like to read though - like Lizzy says, return to some fantasy! Or at least YA!

  5. Hmmm... it sounds... okay. I don't think I'll read it though. And yes ,return to YA! Pretty please!

  6. I didn't read Casual Vacancy so I am not sure if I will read this one either. We'll have to see. So many books so little time.

  7. Isn't she sneaky! I'm keen to read this one. It sounds interesting.

  8. I read it as an ARC! Loved the characters and setting but felt the plot dragged a bit. Overall I enjoyed it and gave it 3.5 stars. Such a surprise to see JK wrote it!

    1. I think it is sooo fun you read it already!
