Simon Snow is starting his final year at Watford School of Magic and just wants to relax and enjoy the last year. Unfortunately things aren’t starting off well for Simon, his girlfriend wants to break up with him, his mentor thinks he’s a danger and wants to send him away and his roommate hasn’t shown up yet. And to top that all off Simon things his roommate is actually evil but he can’t help but worry about him.
Carry On is a spin off novel based off the fan fiction from Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl. With a lot of Harry Potter type elements a lot will compare the two books but I myself haven’t read the Harry Potter series…. yes, I’ve admitted again I haven’t read them. But that means I can’t honestly say how similar this one get to Harry Potter or not and I probably wouldn’t worry about it if I had, if you love books on magic then just enjoy the ride.
What I did find in this book was a really fun read that had me laughing all the way through. I immediately became attached to Simon as a character as he often had me laughing but then when introduced to Baz in the second book I fell in love with him too.
The book alternates the point of view between characters all the way throughout and what this does is let a reader get to know each of them a lot better. I found myself quite enjoying all of the characters as it went along. The story has a slight bit of a love triangle type of aspect but it’s actually more that had me laughing the way it’s set up. But the main couple then become absolutely charming when together.
Overall, a fun fantasy read that won me over with the humor of the story, I won’t say it didn’t have it’s flaws here and there but I had too good of a time laughing along to not rate this one high.
I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
