Genre: Young adult fiction

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 Watford School of Magicks, and Simon’s infuriating nemesis didn’t even bother to show up.

Carry On is a love letter to love stories and the power of words – to every ‘chosen one’ who ever had more on their mind than saving the world…


Carry On By Rainbow Rowell is a fantastic read! Its so gorgeous and so beautiful! I’m still in awe of this lovely book.

I admit that the first 1/3 rd of it is a little to get it. There is so much information and this book, apparently, is the fanfiction of the 8th book in a fictional series from Fangirl, another book by Rainbow Rowell. And I totally get it. But it is also a tad bit boring. BUT once Baz enters, it becomes so much MUCH better!

The characters are just bloody marvelous! Rainbow Rowell is perfect in weaving her characters. Not only they are relatable, but also so loving and huggable! Baz is my favourite character EVER! He is fiery, snarky, hopelessly in love, evilish, and just awesome! I liked Simon and Penelope as well(not as much as I liked Baz). And the romance is so adorable. SimonBaz is my new OTP.

Story wise, Carry on is amazing. I was intrigued throughout the book. The twist at the ending was pretty unpredictable. I just could not put the book down. I finished this 518 pages long book in 1.25 days. Its addicting. Its great. You should read this!

Rating – 5/5

“Safety, stability–it’s an illusion. It’s a false god, Simon. It’s like clinging to a sinking raft instead of learning to swim.”

― Rainbow Rowell, Carry On

    your dear friend



  2. Have you read ‘Fangirl’? I think I enjoyed ‘Fangirl’ more than I did ‘Carry On’ – and I kinda preferred the other little fanfictions in ‘Fangirl’ more than ‘Carry On’ too haha!
