It's Time to Listen to Carry On!

Title: Carry On
Author: Rainbow Rowell
Audiobook Read by Euan Morton
 Publisher: Macmillan Audio
Publication Date: October 6, 2015
11 CDs | 13.5 hours | $39.99
#1 New York Times bestselling author Rainbow Rowell writes books about misfits and nerds, or people who feel like misfits and nerds, and how find their way through life -- cracking each other up and falling in love.

Making her highly-anticipated return to young adult fiction, Rainbow continues to break boundaries with CARRY ON, an epic fantasy following the triumphs and heartaches of Simon and Baz from her beloved bestseller Fangirl. 

Simon Snow just wants to relax and savor 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 roommate 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 savor anything.

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.

Hey, everyone! I know you've seen all the buzz about Rainbow Rowell's latest book, Carry On because it's everywhere! I've already read and reviewed the fantastic book, but I haven't yet listened to the entire audiobook. However, I have listened to the preview, read by Euan Morton, and I must say that if I hadn't already read the hardcover, I'd be listening to the audio version. It just might be one of those things I get myself for Christmas!

Listen to an Excerpt from Carry On

Rainbow Rowell writes books. Sometimes she writes about adults (Attachments andLandline). Sometimes she writes about teenagers (Eleanor & Park, Fangirl, and Carry On). But she always writes about people who talk a lot. And people who feel like they're screwing up. And people who fall in love.

When she’s not writing, Rainbow is reading comic books, planning Disney World trips and arguing about things that don't really matter in the big scheme of things. She lives in Nebraska with her husband and two sons. You can learn more on her website: 

Euan Morton is a Scottish actor and singer. He is known for his role as Boy George in the musical Taboo, receiving nominations for the Laurence Olivier Award and Tony Award for his performance.
