Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
That’s it. I’m going to have to spell this imbecile away from me. My last deed will be to save Simon Snow’s life, and my whole family will be ashamed.

I have to say that I really am enjoying this book so far. Not much has actually happened yet, (at least not the real adventure), but it’s been fairly entertaining. I can see why some people might not enjoy it or find that it’s basically a rip off off Harry Potter, and to those people I say – that’s the whole point. This book knows it’s a fictionalized version of a Harry Potter carbon copy fanfic. It’s in on the joke and makes fun of itself for it. It’s so blatantly obvious and that’s the whole point! If you are swearing off this book because of that, please don’t. Try reading it as a Harry Potter satire, and just embrace the silliness!
But seriously, Agatha can go die an awful death. I really cannot stand her and will be happy to play executioner if need be!
