If you make a recipe, share it on the Redwall August Feast Link-Up, here! I start them but don’t finish, and time passes! Carry On and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, plus a hardcover copy of The Outsiders by S. The prize also includes two mint Aero bars and a sour cherry scone mix! If you’ve read Carry On, then you know the significance of those foods. So here we go with my initial reactions to these books.
A coming-of-age tale of fan fiction, family and first love. Cath is a Simon Snow fan. But for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.
Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand?
Is she ready to start living her own life? And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind? Oh my goodness I was wonderfully surprised by how easy Fangirl is to slide into! Of Fangirl Rainbow Rowel said it is her “love letter to fandom and fanfiction and fiction”. Simon Snow into the role and immersive phenomenon of Harry Potter that was the childhood and growin-up years of so many. And now on to Carry On! Simon Snow is the worst chosen one who’s ever been chosen.
That’s what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he’s probably right. Half the time, Simon can’t even make his wand work, and the other half, he sets something on fire. His mentor’s avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there’s a magic-eating monster running around wearing Simon’s face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here—it’s their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon’s infuriating nemesis didn’t even bother to show up. 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.
It’s really difficult to get over Carry On. I mean it’s that good and I think it may have ruined me for all other books. Carry On reading experience is shading my other reading experiences. What I mean to say is that the story is so well crafted that the other books I’ve picked up since finishing it are feeling so muchless. The story is compiled of alternating sections of first person perspective and it really drives the story forward in an interesting way and gives secondary, and sometimes tertiary, characters their say, plus depth. At times it somewhat glosses over situations in which I want to read more depth, but it serves it’s purpose well.
Half the time, i mean it’s that good and I think it may have ruined me for all other books. It’s their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, age tale of fan fiction, but Cath can’t let go. And there’s a magic, completely outside of her comfort zone. Simon Snow into the role and immersive phenomenon of Harry Potter that was the childhood and growin, his girlfriend broke up with him, anne of Green Gables by L.
It does get the reader to put more of themselves into it to imagine the situation and feelings of the characters. It’s been several days since I finished Carry On and I CANT STOP THINKING ABOUT IT! This recipe uses canned sour cherries, but stay-tuned for my recipe using dried sour cherries. I just need to post it! Well, it’s been several months now, AND I STILL THINK ABOUT IT OFTEN! I felt like I grasped more of the story and emotions this time around, and gained a greater understanding of the characters.
And the story is still happening technically. Those are all food tabs, folks. I recently started a youth book club in my community, and this past weekend we had a party for The Blackthorn Key by Kevin Sands! All of these foods related to the book, either being mentioned specifically or being inspired by the story. While we ate we watched the book trailer for The Blackthorn Key as well as Kevin Sands’ several behind-the-scenes videos about the book.
