I loved this book, and I want the third one. Carry On has really grown on me this year - I liked it originally, but the audiobook was incredible which then led to me reading it again on kindle. So I‘m just a Simon and Baz addict and rainbow can do no wrong for me. I did find they had some moments which just made my heart ache 💔 All the feels. Penny and Agatha too, I liked even more here. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

As a fan of carry on, I think that this book was the sequel I didn‘t know I needed but I couldn‘t live without. The perspective of the chosen one after the big event is something I‘ve never seen before, and seeing the characters I know and love struggle is heartbreaking, but makes then that much more human. I feel like I know them so much more now, and I can‘t want for the next one, I know it‘ll be awesome!

Crowley, this was fantastic! I think I read it in two days. Dearest Rainbow, I love you, and also please don‘t wait four years for the 3rd book, kthanksbye 😂😁♥️
Simon + Baz 4EVER

Lovesbooks87 She said on Twitter that she is shooting to have the book out in two years. 2d
CBee @Lovesbooks87 that‘s so loooooooong to wait though 😩😩😩😩 but it‘s better than four years! 😁♥️ 2d
Lovesbooks87 @CBee that‘s what I am saying too. But like you said better than 4 years! 2d

CBee @Lovesbooks87 yes! I‘m sure it will be worth the wait. I love these characters so much! 2d
madamereadsalot1 I do adore these books! Got my daughter turned onto them too and we both ship Simon and Baz. ♥️😆 I want the third one like yesterday. Lol! But two years is bound to give us good quality! 2d
CBee @madamereadsalot1 I read the last page and was like YES! A 3rd is coming! But it can‘t be soon enough. Simon and Baz..... sigh 😍 2d
madamereadsalot1 @CBee same! Can't wait to see what's going on at their old school and what kind of mischief(and romance) they'll fall into next time...🥰 2d
CBee @madamereadsalot1 agreed! Hoping for a certain two characters to get together! Penelope and Shep! (edited) 2d
madamereadsalot1 @CBee I sure hope so! It seems a bit obvious, but Rowell could throw a curve ball and not include that story arc. Fingers crossed they do though! I really hope Shep sticks around no matter what! And I hope Simon and Baz work past their issues and become a real REAL couple next book! 2d
CBee @madamereadsalot1 same! I‘m very interested to hear more about how he was cursed. And if Penny can fix it! 2d
madamereadsalot1 @CBee I'm also curious about Simon and his wings/tail. It was said in the book, because he has no magic they should have gone away. But it was also said he was a baby dragon. Sooooo does he still have his magic? Is he an animagus? What is going on!? 2d
CBee @madamereadsalot1 I think he still has his magic, somehow. At one point, I did think he was about to go full dragon. I wonder if there was some sort of transfer type thing back in Carry On when he and Baz confronted the dragon...... 🤔 So many questions!!! 2d
madamereadsalot1 @CBee I think he's still magical too. Just blocked up. Something in his brain, his confidence or whatever, maybe? I'm excited to learn more about him! 2d

I don‘t know if it‘s because I listened to the audiobook, but the story didn‘t flow well and seemed choppy. Lots of good lines though, I laughed quite a bit.

OH NO I'M DONE 😭And as I finished we got the enormous news that Simon & Baz‘s story IS NOT THAT OVER YET AND oh wow this is definitely the kind of focus on Baz I was hoping for! This was such a fun adventure through the mundane, expansive, ever-changing American landscape. I was on the edge of my seat throughout. There was plenty of danger and magic and laughter and some sorrow. Lovely.

readordierachel I loved it too. So stoked there will be another ❤ 1w

Thoroughly enjoyed this. Not as much as I did Carry On, mind you, but the bar was set a tad high for any second book, Rowell or not. Also cannot believe we're being blessed with a third Snow-book, what a time to be alive 💃

Mehso-so

So.. I was never a huge carry on fan, but I am a solid enough RR fan that I will read the rest of the Simon Snow series. This book started out pretty good. The struggle in the relationship between Baz and Simon, the first part of the trip with the renaissance fair was hilarious.. but then it lost me. Too many changing points of view.. And I really didn‘t “get” what happened, which is my own struggle with fantasy, but also no real resolution.

Fun book, but definitely “middle book”. I‘ll say 2pts for #teamslaughter as it was a mystery as to who had Agatha, where was she, and how were our misfit heroes going to save her exactly. Also, #scaryscavengerhunt: Witch, vampire, and over 200 pages.

2pts for #scarathlon #teamslaughter

@Clwojick I went through and adjusted all my post points to score them accurately now that I get it. 😅

Clwojick No worries! i've been tracking them all on my side too. The only thing i'm ever unsure of, point-wise, is if a book falls in our theme or not... sometimes you can't tell by the cover or title. But all in all, it's been pretty easy to track for everyone. 2w

I really enjoyed taking a road trip across America with Simon, Baz, and Penny. I am so excited that Rainbow Rowell said this week that there is going to be another Simon Snow book. Hopefully we don't have to wait that long for it!

Thanks heavens Rainbow Rowell announced yesterday that she‘s working on a sequel to Wayward Son. If I have to wait 4 years for Any Way the Wind Blows I will probably die though.

Wayward Son really delivers on RR‘s strengths: character development. I loved each character more than I thought possible. The road trip narrative brings surprises. Vampire Las Vegas is awesome!

Simon and Baz are the best characters! I read this book twice immediately!

Julsmarshall I agree with everything you‘ve said! Can‘t wait for Any Way the Wind Blows! 2w

I absolutely adored this book. It made me sad to see the relationship issues that Baz and Simon have but I am hopeful that things are going to work out for them. This wasn't exactly what I was expecting from the sequel but I loved it every step of the way. I really hope we get to see a conclusion to the series soon!

Ahh! I need more! 😆 When I first read Fangirl, I never imagined that I‘d be able to read one, let alone two books about Simon and Baz, and now I can‘t imagine not reading even more! I loved so much about this book. I loved seeing the relationships change and unfold, and watching the characters grow into themselves. I need Rainbow Rowell to write so many more books, because each one feels like an emotional hug! ❤️ Four and a half stars.

September was a good reading month. 34 books & comics total—with a much more even split between the two. Tagged book was my favorite...because Baz & Simon!!! Also, Rowell lived up to the pressure of a sequel. Gideon the Ninth & The Bone Houses were also great. Middlewest & IHF Book 2 because I love Skottie Young‘s storytelling. Takei‘s powerful memoir & Warga‘s equally compelling story about refugees & finally Doughty‘s fascinating book.

#septemberwrapup I read some depressing books in September. 😂 thankful I had Jim Gaffigan & Rainbow Rowell to cheer me up. 5 physical, 4 audio. 1 re-read, the rest were new, 6 new-to-me authors, only 1 poc author, 2 that have lgbtq as main characters. WS is still my fave of the month, partly because I was so excited about its release. Jekyll & Hyde was my least favorite but still liked it.

Baz, Simon and Penny take a road trip to America, where they encounter big cities, large open spaces, soggy sandwiches, cukture shock, and loads of vampires. This book has the same characters as Carry On, but a completely different setting and plot. The dialogue is brilliant as usual, the action is well-written, there is a mystery and vampire slaying. The relationship trouble was unecessary, but otherwise really fun. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Sounds fun! 3w
Gezemice @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Oh yes you would enjoy it. You probably would care for the romance, too ;) 3w

GingerAntics Interesting. Illinois and Iowa are not known for pig farming. They actually farm corn, wheat, and cows. That must be cow pies they were smelling. 3w
Gezemice @GingerAntics I live in Illinois, there are no pig farms just endless corn and soybeans. She is syaing the difference is that Iowa has pig farms in addition to endless corn fields. But I picked this quote because a large part of the book is about them marveling at the things that are different in America from England. (edited) 3w
GingerAntics Woops, forgot about the soybeans. Sorry. lol Yeah, there are a lot of differences. 3w
Scochrane26 I laughed at this part because Illinois is so boring to drive through (at least from ky to St. Louis). Haven‘t been to Iowa. 3w
Gezemice @Scochrane26 @GingerAntics I laughed too because I live in Illinois. We say there is variety! Sometimes you get corn on one side, soybean on the other. Sometimes soy on both sides. Sometimes corn on both sides. Scenic! 3w
GingerAntics Exactly! lol 3w
eraderneely I was once driving I-70 from Denver to Ohio and just lining the state maps up side to side. I thought I would be in Indianapolis by dinner, then heard someone mention Chicago on the radio and thought “oh crap, I forgot Illinois!” [we didn‘t go through Iowa that trip, but is it really so different?) 3w
LibrarianRyan @Gezemice yep. Most of the hog farms have closed. I don‘t know where your at, I‘m at the capitol, but my Gramps use to run one of those hog farms in Charleston. 3w
Clare-Dragonfly Is she going to continue the series with the rest of the song lyrics? 🤔 3w
Gezemice @eraderneely Indiana and Ohio are probably even worse lol 3w
Gezemice @LibrarianRyan I am in Urbana - there is cow farm but they don‘t smell too bad. The university has a large animal farm to the south for research that we smell occasionally when the wind blows from the south - thankfully it is rare 3w
Gezemice @Clare-Dragonfly I don‘t know. “For there'll be peace when you are done” is not very catchy as a book title. 🤔 3w
LibrarianRyan @Gezemice oh yes. I know that farm. I did some “research” there for a class in high school. 3w
Gezemice @LibrarianRyan Oh really? I guess you know the town then... 3w
LibrarianRyan @Gezemice Oh yeah. I was the Director of the Mattoon Library for 8 years. My parents are from Oakland, and home was always my grandmothers in Learna (Outside Charleston). I'm a military brat and it was the only house that never moved. If you wanted to do any type of real shopping you had to go to Chambana. I have only been in Springfield 2 years. 3w
Gezemice @LibrarianRyan That‘s awesome! We are close! We should meet sometime! Although I kinda doubt that “real shopping” applies to Chambana any more. Stores are closing left and right... 3w
LibrarianRyan @Gezemice Its still better than some of the smaller places. Springfield has not been hit to hard, unless you go to the mall. And we should. I normally go to the #STLmeetup, but I have been thinking of arranging one at the capitol. 3w
