Waiting on Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. It spotlights soon to be released books that can't come quick enough!


Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Published Date: 6 October 2015
Pre-Order: Amazon | The Book Depository

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.
(summary from Goodreads)

So this book is old news, but I only just read Fangirl and then saw this, and well, flailed. A lot. I want to read this book so, so much. As someone who reads a huge amount of fanfiction I enjoyed Fangirl and that Rowell has written this book delights me. DELIGHTS ME! Oh, October, why are you still so far away? 

What upcoming release has you delighted? 


  1. As much as I love fanfic, I'm a bit embarrassed I haven't read FANGIRL yet. I hope you enjoy this one! WoW

    1. I felt the same way, haha! But there's just so many books - and fanfic - to read and so little time! ;-) I hope you get the chance to read Fangirl soon and that you enjoy it as much as I did. Thanks for stopping by, Leeanna!
