If you were a fan of Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl novel, then you’re going to be fan-personing all over the place right now because guess what! We’re getting a spinoff based on the fanfiction that appeared in the Fangirl novel (written by Cath). We always wanted to read more about Simon and Baz, and now our dreams are coming true!
Oh. Em. Gee! I think I just died.
Rainbow took to her official Tumblr to give fans some details about the upcoming Fangirl spinoff.
Here’s more info about my next book:
Simon Snow just wants to relax and savor his last year at the Watford School of Magicks, but no one will let him. His girlfriend broke up with him, his best friend is a pest, and his mentor keeps trying to hide him away in the mountains where maybe he’ll be safe. Simon can’t even enjoy the fact that his roommate and longtime nemesis is missing, because he can’t stop worrying about the evil git. Plus there are ghosts. And vampires. And actual evil things trying to shut Simon down. When you’re the most powerful magician the world has ever known, you never get to relax and savor anything. 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.
She also tweeted the glorious news:
CARRY ON will be a Simon Snow story. And a Simon & Baz story. A love story. It’s my 1st fantasy & it comes out in Oct. I hope you like it!

Really excited to see more of Rowell’s fantasy writing. The fanficion in the Fangirl book was very well-written, so we’re sure she’ll slay us all.
In another tweet, Rainbow Rowell announced that there’s even more news coming out was regarding Fangirl.
I’m not trolling you. I mean, I WOULD troll you. But I’m not right now: Real live Simon Snow book. PLUS MORE FANGIRL NEWS LATER THIS WEEK!
Ah, we’re getting spoiled now. We’ll be sure to post this news as soon as we discover what it is. What do you think it is? Let us know!
October 2015 is a long wait. How will we do it, fan-people? It’s worth it, though! So we’ll just have to.
