Rainbow Rowell New Book: Carry On Simon


For those of you that are currently reading Fan Girl with our  Gabbing Geek Book Club, then you’ll totally appreciate this update. The author of Fan Girl is releasing her next book: Carry On in October. This book is inspired by the Fan Fiction that is mentioned (quite a few times) in the book Fan Girl. And as a fan of Fan Girl, I cannot wait to read Carry On – It’s like Harry Potter meets Buffy. But better. Way better. Check out the synopsis after the break:


“Thrilling and sexy, funny and shocking, deeply moving and very, very magical. Trust me, you have never, ever seen a wizard school like this.


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, 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.
