Goodness gracious! I love Rainbow Rowell! I love, love, love Rainbow Rowell! I loved Carry On!
As I have mentioned several times before, I don’t read/like fantasy as much as I read/like contemporary stories. I don’t like reading about someone who will save mankind or in this book, a chosen one. However, this just worked very well for me. So well! 🙂
All the three main characters (I love Baz the most!) were interesting enough that they really got me into reading this book. The character development and the relationships were very interesting. And of course, the dialogues. The cute, silly banters were a lot of fun, Rainbow Rowell really struck me with her sarcastic wit. It really made me laugh-out-loud literally! :D:D:D I also can’t remember how many times it made me shout “just kiss already!” in my head while reading this. Oh Baz! I really adore you!
So, I loved this book. Even though I’m not a big fan of fantasy and chosen one stories, I was amazed by this one! It’s super gay. But I think that is why I enjoyed it so much. Simon and Baz’s relationship just shows that there really is a thin line between love and hate. 🙂

“Every thing is a story. And you are the hero. You sacrificed everything for me.”
“I wish I’d never figured it out. That I love him. It’s only ever been a torment.”
“One time, he pushed me down a flight of stairs. It was awesome.”
“It’s the good things that hurt when you’re missing them.”
