Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

Published: October 6th, 2015

“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 sets 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 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.”

I just want to say to Rainbow Rowell: thank you. You are definitely becoming my favorite author with the way you write. It’s magic. Everything about this book was perfect. I didn’t want it to end. At all. When I closed the book, I definitely pouted for a good while. Simon was my favorite character. I loved that he was so strong while having this internal battle with himself. In a very close second, Baz was the best. Strong, sarcastic, and witty: the perfect combination. Penny was the smart one that could get them out of any situation. I couldn’t help compare this book with Harry Potter, and I can gladly say that it held it’s own. Carry On was the perfect book. To the people reading this review: I would say to read Rainbow Rowell’s book Fangirl first. It is about a girl who writes fanfiction based off of a book series about the one and only Simon Snow. This is her fanfiction. It will make more sense. It’s not mandatory, but it might make more sense.

About the Author:
Rainbow Rowell writes books. Sometimes she writes about adults (ATTACHMENTS and LANDLINE). Sometimes she writes about teenagers (ELEANOR & PARK and FANGIRL). But she always writes about people who talk a lot. And people who feel like they’re screwing up. And people who fall in love.

When she’s not writing, Rainbow is reading comic books, planning Disney World trips and arguing about things that don’t really matter in the big scheme of things.

She lives in Nebraska with her husband and two sons.
