If you haven't picked up Carry On, Rainbow Rowell's brilliant exploration into the World of Mages, you're missing out.

It's a page-turning, romantic adventure following Simon Snow - 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. 

If you've already had your mitts on a copy of Carry On (we'd be surprised if you hadn't), then this post is a treat just for you.
 
Rainbow has unveiled two new facts about each of the lead characters in Carry On, brand new to the world - so wait no further to find out what Agatha watches on YouTube, or what Baz would like to do when he leaves school . . .
 
Things you didn't know about....
 
Simon
He’s desperate to learn how to drive.
 
He’s met his relatives in the World of Mages, but he doesn’t know it. 
 
Penelope
She has terrible handwriting. (She thinks it’s a waste of time.)
 
She’s scared that her boyfriend will ask her to move to America. 
 
Baz
He’s kept Simon’s cross. For sentimental reasons.

He’s never told anyone, but he’d like to teach at Watford someday.
 
Agatha
 
When she can’t sleep, she watches make-up tutorials on YouTube. 
 
She misses watching the Eurovision contest. 
 
So there you have it - we're squeeing in our ASOS boots (bought impulsively in the sales, obvs). Simon and Baz are truly the OTP to end all OTPs, and just try to stop us daydreaming about learning how to get the perfect brows with Agatha via the power of the Internet.
