For our first ever BAMF Review, we decided to read Rainbow Rowell’s CARRY ON. We approached the book with different past experiences.

Dani had read only one other Rainbow Rowell book, ELEANOR & PARK, while Jamie hadn’t read any. Jamie, however, was a huuuuge Harry/Draco fanfic fan, and, as you’ll see, this pairing is what inspired the book. We all agreed that the book was a bit slow and confusing to start.

About Convince Me To Read Reviews While we all have fairly similar tastes, sometimes we need a little push to read a certain book. The Convince Me to Read Review will be a review of the novel plus a section on why we think the others would enjoy it. It may lead to a Two Peas in a Pod Review! Jamie’s review I really enjoyed NOBODY’S GODDESS. It was something so unique and different that I found myself really enthralled with the story to the point that I almost had to blink myself out of a daze when I finished. […]
