Carry On
Carry On | Rainbow Rowell
#1 New York Times bestselling author!Booklist Editors’ Choice 2015 - Youth! Named a "Best Book of 2015" by Time Magazine, School Library Journal, Barnes & Noble, NPR, PopSugar, The Millions, and The News & Observer!Simon Snow is the worst Chosen One who's ever been chosen.That's what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he's probably right.Half the time, Simon can't even make his wand work, and the other half, he starts something on fire. His mentor's avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there's a magic-eating monster running around, wearing Simon's face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here -- it's their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon's infuriating nemesis didn't even bother to show up.Carry On - The Rise and Fall of Simon Snow is a ghost story, a love story and a mystery. It has just as much kissing and talking as you'd expect from a Rainbow Rowell story - but far, far more monsters.

"What you are is a fucking tragedy, Simon Snow. You literally couldn't be a bigger mess." ~ Baz

I admit I was a bit skeptical about #CarryOn because I mostly skimmed the Simon Snow parts in Fangirl but this book surprised me in the best way possible. I fell for Simon & Baz so hard, and I just couldn't stop reading. ?????

I'm so happy #WaywardSon is coming out soon - I need more #Snowbaz! ?

My favorite ya books. Actually some of my favorite books of all time. I have been obsessed with books since I was a child. I loved Judy Blume and the weekly readers my mom ordered for me that came to the house regularly. #24in48 #hour30challenge

This novel I could not put down. Rainbow Rowell is a fantastic author. Carry on is the perfect book for anyone who enjoyed Harry Potter or any magical story as a kid. The novel includes mythical and magical concepts and makes them exciting and new for a YA audience. Throughout the novel the characters make intriguing discoveries about themselves that leave you wanting to know more!

chaoticgoodhufflepuff I‘ve been thinking about reading this book for a while now! Your review convinced me to put it on my TBR list! 2d
Rowynbpg @chaoticgoodhufflepuff I‘m so happy that my review has helped you to put it in your TBR list! It is for sure one of my favourite novels I‘ve read in a while and everyone who I know who has read it also adores it! Also, the second one comes out this September! 2d

Trying to make this weekend as relaxing as possible. My back stopped aching, but I‘ve battled a headache for days and I woke up in the wee hours of the morning with a horrible sore throat. Now to just relax outside with a pup and read while my cat meows like crazy inside.

I absolutely loved this book. i wasn‘t sure what to think of it when i first started but i quickly got immersed into the world and fell madly in love with the characters. i stayed up all night finishing this book, not a dull moment and i‘m devastated i have to wait until september for the sequel. there‘s a moment at the end where Into My Arms by Nick Cave plays and i played it as i read and it was a whole thing🖤🌙😭 #fangirling

My week keeps getting worse. They found a nail in my tire yesterday, which thankfully could be repaired. Today, however, I managed to hurt my back while brushing my teeth. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I don‘t recommend coughing and brushing at the same time. It hurts. So my evening is now down to sitting in my chair with a heating pad and book.

MelissaSue81 What a crappy week! I pulled my hamstring on Friday and I also have spent a lot of time with a heating pad. Its mostly better now, until I tried “run“ across the street. Nope.. can't run yet!
This is a good book though! I love Rainbow Rowell!

My week has started out quite shitty (pardon my language). I was on my way to work and my tire pressure light came on saying my rear right tire was at a 7 when it turns out it was my right front that was completely flat. So now I‘m at Sears getting it fixed or changed. Not entirely sure it can be fixed which is how I did not want to start my day.

Bklover I hate car issues! Time consuming, expensive, and annoying! Hope you get some good reading in and make sure to reward yourself with a coffee or tea! 2w

I finished this book earlier this week.

I always wondered what to read first. Carry On or Fangirl. But advice from a friend whom I borrowed Carry On and Fangirl, I started with Carry On.

Anyone who hasn't read either or I strongly suggest reading Carry On before Fangirl.

A fantasy world that makes you at first lost in translation, but fixes it. As you go in an adventure

Also a perfect read for pride month 😊

I wasn‘t sure about this in the beginning. It is so different from the rest of Rainbow Rowell‘s other books and very much a Harry Potter wanna be. However, reading Fangirl first and thinking of Cath writing it really helped. I love the Simon and Baz dynamic. 4.5 ✨

Peddler410 I read this last year without having read Fangirl ... totally got the Harry Potter book 7 vibe. I almost bailed, but then Baz showed up ... Still haven‘t had the desire to read Fangirl, but I will read a Carry On sequel which is supposed to be happening 🤷🏻‍♀️ (edited) 4w

omg omg omg✨✨✨✨ ok so i‘ve read mixed reviews on this one but i have a feeling i‘m going to love it, i‘m a big fanfic reader (specifically drarry) so i‘m beyond curious to see how this reads, i love the cover art/concept

bookandbedandtea I loved this book but it made my brain hurt at times because it tried so hard to make it fit the HP world and it doesn't. 😉 Penelope, for instance...I kept trying to figure out if she was Hermione or Ron when the answer is neither- and both! So enjoy and remember it only bears a small resemblance to HP! 4w

Today was my library‘s annual book sale and I told myself I was going to be good. However, since it is the last day of the sale they really wanted to see everything go so it was $5 for as many books as you could fit in a wine box. 😬 (And then Simcoe, my cat, claimed my stack after I arrived home. 😹

With this reread, I met my yearly #GoodreadsChallenge!🎉100 books!📚💕

I definitely enjoyed this more the second time around. Baz and Simon‘s dramatic relationship is deliciously overwrought. (As any #Slytherdore ship should be!) Agatha annoyed me the first time through, but I found a new appreciation for her this time. And Penny is still 100% wonderful!

I can‘t wait for Wayward Son to come out 9/24! (The day after my birthday!🤫😆)

I think this may be my last Rainbow Rowell. I went into this novel with mixed feelings about her and it did nothing to dispel them. The first half of the book felt to me like reading well done HP fanfic, and even after the characters took on a life of their own and I got into the story I wasn‘t blown away.

Erinreadsthebooks Agreed! I really liked Attachments and Eleanor and Park, but I‘ve struggled to find other Rowell books I enjoy. 1mo
JeffyRoo This is the accompanying book to her novel Fangirl. In Fangirl, the main character, Cath, is a fanfiction writer, and Carry On Simon is Cath's fanfic. Carry On isn't my favourite RR either but the context might help. Seeing as it's RR writing as Cath, writing Fanfic about someone else's fictious books... complicated set up. Fangirl is definitely better though. 3w
IndoorDame @JeffyRoo Fangirl is actually the first Rainbow Rowell I read, and one of the ones I did really like, but it's been long enough that I'd forgotten the name of the character she writes about in that novel. It's totally a cool idea that she actually wrote the fictional novel from her earlier novel, very meta, but it doesn't actually change my opinion about the book. 3w

This book far exceeded my expectations! Loved it! It was a bit of a slow starter, but once it got going I couldn‘t put it down. And honestly it tickles me that this is fictional fan fiction that started off as a plot point in another book and now it has a life of its own. I‘m definitely excited for the sequel. I‘d read the phonebook if it was written by Rainbow Rowell.

You ever read a book so fast you have to go back and reread it to savor the story? Yeah, just me then. I flew through this beauty in a night, thanks to the relationship between Baz and Simon. The magical elements sometimes feel like background noise to the central relationship arc, and that works for me. I would definitely call this a Romance with fantastical elements than a fantasy with romantic elements. #willreadagain #carryon #romcom
