When your Favourite Character Dies!

Hey everyone,

remember when your favourite character died in that book a.k.a in every book. And then you were like AASDFGXXBGSYGCW. Yeah, I am talking about that moment. Now I am not sure what exactly this post is about because I was actually grieving over the death of a certain character and I got this idea to talk about death of our favourite characters.

Now before the character’s death, everything is fine, everything is normal. You’re enjoying the story, you’re very close to the end of the book and BOOM! Your favourite character’s dead.

Types of People You Meet in your School Library

Hey everyone,

and really I don’t know if I like this title or not. Today I wanted to talk about different people you meet in the library at your school. Now why is it library “at school”? Because people are irritating. Because you go to the library during school hours and it is compulsory to go to the library and there are some children who don’t want to read so they disturb you. And in public library those people come who are actually interested in reading. Like come to the library in my school, you’ll understand what I mean. So I prepared a list of all the people I see around me in the library.

Top 5 Tuesday – Top 5 Rewind – Books I don’t talk about enough

Hey everyone,

and welcome to Top 5 Tuesday. Today’s topic is “Books I don’t talk about enough”. Seriously speaking, I was not ready to take part in today’s T5T. It’s one of the most difficult one. It was so hard to come up with my list because I feel that I have talked about some these books in one way or another and I don’t love any book. Like I don’t have any favourite book.

Carry On | Book Review

Hey everyone,

and welcome to another book review. Today is going to be a review on a book I just finished and I loved it so so much. It’s Carry On by Rainbow Rowell.

ughhhhh not again

 

Name – Carry On

Author – Rainbow Rowell

Publisher – St. Martin’s Press

Publishing Date – 6th October, 2015

Genre – Young Adult, Fantasy

Length – 522 pages

Synopsis –  In a world full of magick, Simon is the chosen one. The worst chosen one to be precise. He is supposed to be the most powerful person to walk on earth but half the time Simon can’t make his wand work and the other half he sets something on fire. And amidst all of this Simon has to deal with a lot of problems. His mentor is avoiding him, his girlfriend’s acting all weird and there is a super monstrous monster running out there who’s wearing Simon’s face. Simon should be worried about all of this but he finds himself more worried about Baz, his nemesis since seven years and roommate, who hasn’t arrived at Watford School of Magicks. Baz could be out there, plotting the fall of Simon Snow.

                                             REVIEWWWWWW

  I don’t know how or where to start because there’s so many things I love in this book and 1 post won’t be enough.

Let’s start with the characters. Characters were my favourite part about this book. I love all of the characters in this book except one or two. We have Simon, Baz, Penelope, Agatha and so many more. I love all of them. I love Simon. He is the chosen one but he makes mistakes. He doesn’t know how to control his power and he is stuck in all of these problems. Then we have Penelope. I love Penelope. She’s such a great great character. She’s smart, witty, strong and just so lovable. She might probably be my favourite character. And of course Baz. I really like Baz. I started enjoying the book more when Baz came around. Because he’s just so sly. Always sneering. Kind of the bad boy.

The plot is wonderful. Watford is amazing. And I know that a lot of people call this book a fanfiction of Harry Potter but this is different. Yes, at certain points you do get that feeling of Harry Potter but seriously this book has a story of its own. If you keep on thinking that this is like Harry Potter, you’ll never like this book. You’ll never be able to enjoy Watford.

The pacing was okay but in the beginning I found this book a bit boring and almost DNF’ed it. The beginning was a bit hard to understand because this takes place in Simon’s last year at Watford and it was a bit hard to understand this World of Mages which we know nothing about.

There are still some loose ends. I am still not sure about other characters. I feel that we don’t know what actually happens with them. Like Simon’s parents.

The writing style is absolutely wonderful. That is the one thing I like about Rainbow Rowell’s books. You just fly through them and you don’t even realize that you have read a 100 pages in 1 hour.

Now you don’t need to read Fangirl before reading Carry On. There’s no mention of Cath or anyone in this book. Which did disappoint me, kind of. I wanted to see Cath’s name on the front page. I don’t know why.

Dialogues! Let’s not forget dialogues. They were my favourite part of this book(after the characters). There are so many funny and like witty dialogues between these characters which made me laugh. Like actually laugh. I never laugh while reading books and this book made me laugh. I love how Simon would say something stupid and everyone would be like “We’re gonna throw up” or something like that.

This book is so informal. Like Rainbow Rowell wrote it from her heart. She wrote conversations which you could actually see happening in your real life. And I love it.

The plot twist or simply the plot was so smart. The idea of the villain was so smart. This book is so cool.

And the best part. Baz and Simon. My heart exploded whenever these two characters were together. The chemistry between these two is remarkable. They fight, they tease each other and I find it all wonderful.

This book is a book which you might enjoy more if you read it in one sitting because whenever I would read this book after taking a break, I always found it a bit difficult to get into the book again.

So I loved this book and didn’t actually have any problems with this book.

“It’s like being a fairy named Mary,” Baz goes on. “Or a vampire named Gampire,” I say. “Gampire isn’t even a proper name, Snow. You’re terrible at this game.”, Baz says.

 

“Carry on, Simon.”

ughhhhh not again

Aaaah…….I love this book so much. Especially the characters. I wish I could be friends with them. If you love Rainbow Rowell you have to read this book. It also has Vampires and Magic in it. So……..
