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…

THIS IS COMING OUT IN 2019 INSTEAD OF 2020. FUCK YEAH

Rainbow Rowell said I’m gonna give the gays everything they asked for….also, make them broke because both the US and UK cover are A SIGHT TO BEHOLD

(also, Baz’s floral Gucci suit look™ was 100% inspired by Harry Styles you can’t look me in the eyes and say otherwise)

FUCKING SHIT I JUST HAD A HEART ATRACK




My SPN fandom heart is extremely happy with this title



2019? Better than 2020, I know that the year is almost over already, but still...





Simon and Baz look SO GOOD in this cover


My babies are coming back to me!
Alex ✰ Comets and Comments ✰
UPDATE: this fucking cover is everything i have ever wanted and my lil gay heart cannot cope.

description

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.

Rainbow Rowell writes books. Sometimes she writes about adults (ATTACHMENTS and LANDLINE). Sometimes she writes about teenagers (ELEANOR & PARK and FANGIRL). But she always writes about people who talk a lot. And people who feel like they're screwing up. And people who fall in love.

When she's not writing, Rainbow is reading comic books, planning Disney World trips and arguing about things that
