Mica’s Take Over: Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

I’m sorry that this is late! This was supposed to be posted on Wednesday, but I forgot to schedule it… oops.

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Breaking The Spine. It is a post where we share a book we are excited to read but isn’t published yet.


Carry On

Carry On is a spin-off to Fangirl. Carry On does not have a synopsis yet, so here is the synopsis to Fangirl.

Cath is a Simon Snow fan.

Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan . . .

But for Cath, being a fan is her life — and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving.

Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fanfiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.

Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.

Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fanfiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words . . . And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

For Cath, the question is: Can she do this?

Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?

And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?


Why Am I Waiting?

Fangirl is a really good book (and the title also explains who I am). I am very excited to see how this spin-off will turn out. Apparently, the book is supposed to be based off of the fanfic that Cath wrote: Carry On, Simon. Rowell has a nice style of writing, and I can’t wait to read her new work.
