Upcoming Books: Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

I am a big fan of Rainbow Rowell and this October, her next book Carry On will
finally be available to read! So here is what Rainbow has told us so far…

– It is being released on Oct. 6, 2015

-There are no Advanced Reader Copies. Nobody can read it until the release date!

– It was inspired by fictional fanfiction of a fictional series

– It is a love story

Carry On is a standalone novel however reading Fangirl will introduce you to its hero, Simon Snow, and his nemesis, Baz

– It is Rainbow’s first fantasy novel

– It is being written as if by Rainbow Rowell not Cath or Gemma T. Leslie


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, and a mystery. It has just as much kissing and talking as you’d expect from a Rainbow Rowell story — but far, far more monsters.

  1. I feel sometimes like I am the only person in the world who hasn’t read a Rainbow Rowell book. *Goes and hides behind the sofa in shame* :p Which book would you recommend if I tried reading one of her books and what do you especially like about her writing? 🙂

    1. I felt the same way until around 9 months ago! I’d definitely recommend Eleanor & Park. It’s an easy read and a really lovely story!

      I feel that Rainbow Rowell really understands what its like to be a teenager/young adult – especially someone that doesn’t really fit in. It makes it so easy to relate to and care for her characters 🙂
