Carry On!

by

carry_oRainbow Rowell, the acclaimed author of Eleanor & Park and Fangirl, has a new book that just came out, Carry On.

If you are a Rowell fan then I do not have to convince you to check out her new book, but if you are not here are some thing to know about Carry On: Rowell is a huge Harry Potter and Twilight fan and the book is heavily influenced by both. How exciting! Apparently, “‘Carry On, Simon,’ which pairs Simon Snow with his roommate and nemesis, named Baz, is an obvious analogue of the popular slashfic pairing of Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy, with an addition — Baz is a vampire — that also nods to the Twilight books.”

So here is what the book is about:

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.
