Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.

This week I am waiting on Carry On by Rainbow Rowell (October 6, 2015)

Summary from GoodReads

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.

Why I'm Waiting

I’m a fan of Rowell, and FanGirl is one of my favorite YA books, so to finally be able to read Cath’s fanfic, it’s going to be amazing!  I’m also a huge fan of Harry Potter (seriously, my blog is a badger, I’m obviously a Hufflepuff J), so I really can’t wait to see what Rowell did with Simon Snow, what similarities she has between her Snow-verse and the Potter-verse.  I’m really hoping on some sort of amazingly done commentary on the Harry Potter craze, or at least a kick ass parody that’s not obviously a parody.


  1. Great pick! I loved Fangirl and I can't wait for stuff about Simon Snow. Have an awesome week. :)

  2. So far I've only read one Rowell book, but I really enjoyed it. I have Fangirl sitting on my TBR shelf, just need to hurry up and read it. Great pick!
