Waiting on Wednesday- Carry On- Rainbow Rowell

I love Rainbow Rowell.  Her writing is so wonderfully readable, she's not afraid to explore topics outside the ordinary and from following her on twitter I've discovered she's a proper, fully-fledged fangirl.  This all appeals to me.
I've loved her other releases and ran a Rainbow Rowell week on Books with Bunny last year, but I cannot wait for Carry On.   Can't it be October 8th already?
The Blurb
Simon Snow just wants to relax and savour his last year at the Watford School of Magicks, but no one will let him. His girlfriend broke up with him, his best friend is a pest and his mentor keeps trying to hide him away in the mountains where maybe he'll be safe. Simon can't even enjoy the fact that his room-mate and longtime nemesis is missing, because he can't stop worrying about the evil git. Plus there are ghosts. And vampires. And actual evil things trying to shut Simon down. When you're the most powerful magician the world has ever known, you never get to relax and savour anything.

Based on the characters Simon and Baz who featured in Rainbow Rowell's bestselling Fangirl, Carry On is a ghost story, a love story, a mystery and a melodrama. It has just as much kissing and talking as you'd expect from a Rainbow Rowell story - but far, far more monsters.

Carry On is released on October 8th 2015, published by Macmillan Children's Books.
