SEPTEMBER 2019 BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT: CARRY ON BY RAINBOW ROWELL

Hello guys!!

The book of the month for this month is an LGBTQ+ favourite: Carry On! I’ve heard many good things from a heap of friends about it and am excited for us all to try it 😀

______
A #1 New York Times-bestseller
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 starts 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 – The Rise and Fall of Simon Snow 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.

See you on September 30th when we will be discussing 😉
