Reviews Wayward Son (Simon Snow, #2)

  • Chloe
    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 ...

    I really really liked this, but i did have some big issues. Mostly, it was just that while the plot's arc felt well resolved, the character arcs for simon and baz were anything but. RTC + will rate this later

    “I'd give him all that I am. I'd give him all that I was. I'd open up a vein.I'd tie our hearts together, chamber by chamber.” At this point I am being willingly dragged by SnowBaz.Simon believes that his only purpose in life was magic, to be the chosen one that everyone needed. Now that it’s over, Simon thinks that Baz and Penny don’t love him, that they only ever did because of his power. My heart. My poor, poor soul. All I wanted was f...

    UM. NO. YES? So I have to be honest, I thought Carry On had the best ending, and really, these characters were great in a standalone--it was...enough (it's never enough, my friends). Hearing that there was going to be a second book (i.e. Wayward Son) I thought it was unnecessary. However: I WAS OFC HAPPY TO SEE BAZ, SIMON, AND PENELOPE AGAIN. BUT: I was skeptical if it would be necessary. UH--NECESSARY EVIL. I literally hugged this book when I fi...

    4.5 starsEver since I finished Carry On, last year, I wanted, NEEDED more of Baz and Simon. It took them so long to get together in the first book, but I was fine with it, because they were Baz and Simon, I just never thought I'll get more. And now maybe even a third book??????Anyway, Wayward Son, wasn't perfect. Far from it, but it gave me pretty much what I wanted, Baz and Simon, and of course Penelope in forced proximity on a road trip through...

    That feeling when you’ve been anticipating a book for over a year and it’s, well, lackluster...Some background: a few years ago Rainbow Rowell wrote an amazing book called Fangirl . One of the main characters in that book wrote fan fiction about a Harry Potter-esque character named Simon Snow and his nemesis/crush Baz (think Draco Malfoy).Rowell then wrote Carry On , which followed Simon and Baz, Simon’s best friend Penny, and their battl...

    Star Rating: —> 5 Stars🌟⭐🌟⭐🌟Oh, by 5 I mean all the Stars in the galaxy, obvs.HELL YAHThis was fucking fantastic. I really hope there are more sequels coming because man... Rowell ALWAYS has this way of accessing to magic (there’s no other explanation for her brilliance) & flaunts it when she enchants us with her novels... but it’s ALWAYS the strongest for me when it involves Simon & Baz. Rainbow Rowell has created two of my fa...
