Weekly Reads: Carry On

Carry On is the most recent book that Rainbow Rowell has written. It is the story is fan-fic'd in her story, Fangirl. I read this book over a year ago, and didn't get around to blogging about it. I recommend this book over and over to teens and adults at my library. Love story, fantasy, intrigue, magic, what more could you want?

My rating: 5 stars.

Summary 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.
