Waiting on Wednesday: Carry On - Rainbow Rowell

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on Carry On by Rainbow Rowell!

Carry On
Rainbow Rowell
Series: N/A
Release Date: October 6th, 2015
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Waited on by: Noor 

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.

Fangirl was such a good time and I can't believe we're less than a month away from the release of the fanfiction that the main character is so known for. I'm really excited for Carry On because Rowell said -- at least I think this is what she said -- that she isn't trying to be herself writing as Cath writing as the author or any of that, she's just writing the book and telling the story. I know the Carry On passages in Fangirl weren't as strong as the actual Fangirl parts of fangirl but that's because the point of Fangirl was to focus on Cath and her real life. This time, it's all about the fictional world (which is now I guess real) so it'll obviously be more developed and fleshed out. I have faith in Rainbow Rowell and her prowess as a writer and I'm excited for her take on ghosts and monsters and kissing (oh my).

  1. I am so excited that Rainbow is going to write this tale! I was hoping for a sequel to Fangirl, but this is acceptable! :p
