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.


I have raved about Fangirl ever since I read it in early 2014. One of my favorite things about the story, was the fanfiction our main character Cath and her twin sister Wren co-wrote called the " Simon Snow " series. Falling in love with Simon and Baz wasn't hard to do, and when I find out Rainbow was creating a spin off giving the two characters their own time to shine, I KNEW I had to have it. Now here it is, almost October, almost time for the release of Carry On! I don't know about you guys, but I am SUPER PUMPED to finally be re-united with Simon and Baz, so while we wait for October 6 to slowly come around, how about we throw a little party? Let's call this the #simonbaztakeover, Countdown To Carry On!
