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