Wayward Son

Availability: Ready to download

The story is supposed to be over. Simon Snow did everything he was supposed to do. He beat the villain. He won the war. He even fell in love. Now comes the good part, right? Now comes the happily ever after… So why can’t Simon Snow get off the couch? What he needs, according to his best friend, is a change of scenery. He just needs to see himself in a new light… That’s how Si The story is supposed to be over. Simon Snow did everything he was supposed to do. He beat the villain. He won the war. He even fell in love. Now comes the good part, right? Now comes the happily ever after… So why can’t Simon Snow get off the couch? What he needs, according to his best friend, is a change of scenery. He just needs to see himself in a new light… That’s how Simon and Penny and Baz end up in a vintage convertible, tearing across the American West. They find trouble, of course. (Dragons, vampires, skunk-headed things with shotguns.) And they get lost. They get so lost, they start to wonder whether they ever knew where they were headed in the first place… With Wayward Son, Rainbow Rowell has written a book for everyone who ever wondered what happened to the Chosen One after he saved the day. And a book for everyone who was ever more curious about the second kiss than the first. It’s another helping of sour cherry scones with an absolutely decadent amount of butter. Come on, Simon Snow. Your hero’s journey might be over – but your life has just begun.

    I have 99 problems, and the fact that this book already has multiple GORGEOUS covers is all of them!!! ALSO THIS IS COMING OUT IN 2019 INSTEAD OF 2020. MISS ROWELL SAID I'M GONNA GIVE THE GAYS EVERYTHING THEY ASKED FOR On a slightly unrelated but equally important note, Baz’s floral Gucci suit look™ is 100% inspired by Harry Styles, you can’t look me in the eyes and say otherwise!

    UPDATE: this fucking cover is everything i have ever wanted and my lil gay heart cannot cope. we have the new doomsday date: we all gonna die™ sometime in 2020. - this gives you enough preparation to fully appreciate that our gay bois will be once again returning. - this also gives goodreads sufficient amount of time to update their rating scale to 10 stars. © ©

    Guys. GUYS. GAYWARD SON. Okay I'm sorry I'll show myself out now. *** As if I didn't have a hard enough time not getting this song stuck in my head EVERY SINGLE TIME I saw the words Carry On. Of course they just HAD to name the next one Wayward Son, which is even harder. But whatever, I'm thrilled we're getting a new one... I was never quite satisfied with the way Carry On ended. And also just more of Simon and Baz. *Walks away grinning and humming Carry On My Wayward Son*

    I hate the cover. Brb I am going to cry. 13/3/2019 Cover reveal this week... 7/11/2018 OMG OMG OMG KEEP CALM!! WAYWARD SON HAS BEEN MOVED UP TO 2019!!! 14/10/2018 Rowell finished the first draft and she released a teaser and I'm like ASDFGHJKL 23/7/2018 Is it 2020 already? No? *cries* 3/6/2018 I am: a) dying b) crying c) ready to sell my organs for this book d) all of the above and more Honestly, this is a blessing. Carry On is one of my favorite books so to know that we're going to get more Baz and Simon and I hate the cover. Brb I am going to cry. 13/3/2019 Cover reveal this week... 7/11/2018 OMG OMG OMG KEEP CALM!!

Carry On is one of my favorite books so to know that we're going to get more Baz and Simon and Penelope... it warms my heart. I am so deliriously happy right now! I can't stop crying! EDIT: My dumb ass didn't see the release date so now I am crying even more. TWO YEARS!? Am I in Azkaban? EDIT 2: Obviously this cover is my new screensaver. My boys look amazing! EDIT #I HAVE TOO MANY THINGS TO SAY: Baz's suit reminds me of this interaction between him and Fiona: "Go home and figure out how to take down the Mage." "I told you. I'm going dancing." I look at his suit again and his shiny black shoes. "Basil. Have you met a bloke?" He smiles, and he's made of trouble. We should have dropped him in the Thames in a bag of scones. We should have left him out for the fairies. "Something like that." YES, FIONA. HE MET A BLOKE CALLED SIMON AND THEY ARE CRAZY FOR EACH OTHER

    Wouldn’t it be great if Rowell used memes and vines as spells in this one?? 😂😂 EDIT: also, wouldn’t it be awesome if Rowell kept it all going for the whole song; “CARRY ON my WAYWARD SOOOOOOOON, there’ll be peace when you are doooooone. Lay your weary head to reeeeest, don’t you cry no more!” 🤣🤣
