This Monday I am reading Carry On by Rainbow Rowell.
This is her newest book and a continuation story of types from her novel Fan Girl. For those of you who have read Fan Girl you know what I am talking about but for those of you who don’t here is a synopsis from Goodreads:
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.
Alright so that didn’t tell you about the connection to FanGirl. Carry On is the fanfic that the character Cather wrote about a fictional book series she has been obsessed with for years. Carry On is a fictional world set in another fictional world. Just imagine Cath is real and the Simon Snow books are real and you are just reading her fanfic.
