In Carry On, Simon Snow and Baz Grimm-Pitch are, respectively, the Chosen One and a vampire. Both individuals have entirely different family lives, reputations, and beliefs. When they are forced to form an alliance over a common cause, however, they come to realize they might make a better team than they would like to admit.
Simon was chosen by a prophecy to do something along the lines of save the world. With the Humdrum, a monster that looks like Simon, wrecking havoc on the magical community, how far will Simon go to ensure the safety of others?
I never knew what was going to happen next with the characters, but I was always excited to find out. Because of the plot twists this book held, it kept me guessing until the very end.
With quirky characters like Baz Pitch, Simon’s sworn enemy, and Penelope Bunce, Simon’s best friend, I found myself wishing I could be transported to Watsford, the school they all attend, just to be a part of their unconventional squad.
MY SHIP SAILED! I was ecstatic. Though I already assumed the outcome of the relationship because of Fangirl, I was still pleasantly surprised.
I adore the progression of the relationship, and I would love to go into detail, but I’m trying not to spoil. I spoil a lot. I’m trying to stop. Trying being the key word.
Though I did eventually love the book, it took a few chapters for me to actually get into the story. Also, pay attention to who’s perspective the chapter is in, because a character or two are people who are either already dead or really loony.
All in all, Carry On turned me into a gushing fangirl. The build-up to the climax was perfection, and the resolution was bittersweet. It gets better every time I read it.
