Carry On | Rainbow Rowell
post image
Pickpick

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) 3w

Finished this one today thanks to morning traffic. I enjoyed this one more than the series. Kids are still unhappy with adults and who they are ruling the empire. Magic is important for the survival of mortals and immortals but not exactly sure how yet. I felt the characters were much more developed and layered. 3.5 ⭐️

Sonny and I finished this one tonight. I really enjoyed this. Cath an anxiety-ridden introvert that is a successful fanfic writer goes to college pretty much alone after her twin sister decides she needs to meet new people. What unfold is a beautiful story of family, finding love, finding herself and finding her own writing voice. #dogsoflitsy #sonnythemutt
