Waiting on Wednesday [8]: Carry On by Rainbow Rowell


Carry On by Rainbow Rowell | St. Martin’s Griffin | Publication Date: October 6th, 2015

Rainbow Rowell continues to break boundaries with Carry On, an epic fantasy following the triumphs and heartaches of Simon and Baz from her beloved bestseller Fangirl.

Simon Snow just wants to relax and savor his last year at the Watford School of Magicks, but no one will let him. His girlfriend broke up with him, his best friend is a pest, and his mentor keeps trying to hide him away in the mountains where maybe he’ll be safe. Simon can’t even enjoy the fact that his roommate and longtime nemesis is missing, because he can’t stop worrying about the evil git. Plus there are ghosts. And vampires. And actual evil things trying to shut Simon down. When you’re the most powerful magician the world has ever known, you never get to relax and savor anything.

Carry On is a ghost story, a love story, a mystery and a melodrama. It has just as much kissing and talking as you’d expect from a Rainbow Rowell story — but far, far more monsters.

It’s like that morning after the most incredible night of your life and you’re still a little drunk. The love of your life cooks you breakfast: bacon, huevos rancheros, pancakes…the works. But just the thought of eating makes you want to projectile-vomit on his face while you curse the day he was born. You just can’t think about eating. ANYTHING.
That’s how I feel right now. I don’t know what to do with myself. I don’t know if I’ll ever be the same.  How do I go on? And then I realized, this. THIS book is the cure.
But how do I get a copy? Who do I have to f*ck/kill/marry? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
