Waiting on Wednesday: Carry On

12:00 AM Serena 0 Comments

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature, hosted by Breaking the Spine, where bloggers talk about upcoming releases they're looking forward to.

This week's pick is:
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
Expected Publication Date: October 6th, 2015

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. 

Before I saw Rainbow last month, all I knew was that Carry On is the Simon and Baz book. She talked more about what she was doing with it that night, and it made me want to read it even more. Basically: GIVE ME ALL THE RAINBOW BOOKS. 

What are you waiting on this Wednesday? Let me know!
