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.
Wayward Son (Simon Snow, #2) Reviews
Okay I decided that my rating is actually 2 stars. This book just really fell flat for me. So many things that made Carry On amazing just weren't present in this book. This book is just so incredibly different to Carry On. The tone of Carry On is fun, fluffy and it doesn't take itself too seriously whereas in Wayward Son, the tone completely shifts to a more serious tone with the characters going through their own struggles. I appreciated what it was going for, but unfortunately it just didn't work for me and what I personally wanted out of the sequel.
I feel like it's hard for me to articulate my thoughts and feelings on this book but basically Carry On was everything and Wayward Son was jarring and lacklustre (I'm really sad about it).
So many mixed feelings ah!!! I will try to write a review once I feel like I can better articulate my thoughts.
wayward son HURTS. in the best way. and to me, it's one of the most important books rainbow has ever written. full review after i reread carry on so i can read this a second time and read the series back to back
my sexuality: being attracted to all women and (1) floral suit wearing rat sucker
acknowledge Simon as bi or pay me $10,000
I have 99 problems, and the fact that this book already has multiple GORGEOUS covers is all of them!!!
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!
