TOPIC OF THE WEEK: Review of the BOTM – Carry On by Rainbow Rowell


Okay, here’s the thing – I just started this book last night. Soooooo, yeah, I can’t really give you a full review at this time.

I had hoped to at least be much farther into this novel than I am, but Smashing Series September went a lot slower than originally planned. But the good news is that I did finish The Winner’s Kiss Trilogy, The Remnant Chronicles Trilogy, and the Dorothy Must Die series. Bad news is that I didn’t even get to Throne of Glass series or Half Bad Trilogy, but there’s always October!!! Anyways, back to the subject of this post…

I did read Fangirl. That’s been my only taste of Rowell’s books up until this point. And while I enjoyed it, I had no desire whatsoever to read anything else by her. I’m just not a fan of contemporaries – y’all should know this by now! Luckily, this book is a fantasy so I’m hoping to at least find it entertaining. I know plenty of bloggers rave about it (hence it being the Hype or Like Friday BOTM), but I’m usually a contrarian so this should be interesting.
