Waiting on Wednesday (#23): Carry On by Rainbow Rowell (October 6, 2015 by St. Martin's Griffin)


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
For more information, click here.



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.
BEFORE I SAY ANYTHING ELSE LET ME JUST SAY THAT ANYTHING RAINBOW ROWELL COMES UP WITH, I AM IN!

  3. I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS ONE. OH EXCUSE ME A SECOND WHILE I FANGIRL. XD It'll be really interesting to see Rainbow Rowell write something more in the "epic" genre too. EEP.

    1. You should definitely give Rainbow Rowell a chance - I know for some readers her books are too heavy on dialogue and lack action, but that's exactly how I like my books often :)

  6. This is crazy, but this is an author that has been on my TBR forever, but still haven't read a single one. Thank you for the intro to another book by Rainbow. I have to pick one up.
