In Any Way the Wind Blows, Simon, Baz, Penelope, and Agatha have to decide how to move forward after all they've all been through. For Simon, that means deciding if he still wants to be a part of the World of Mages. For Baz, it's bouncing between two family crises and figuring out how to process his newfound vampire knowledge. Meanwhile, Penelope smuggled Shepard into the country on a fake passport and now needs to figure out what to do with him. And Agatha... well Agatha has had enough...

This book is the finale to the Simon Snow series and is an ending about ending.

I love this. I love Simon and Baz (together and individually). I love the growth of Penny in this novel tremendously; I was always slightly annoyed with her in the first two but she's changed a lot. Shepard - I still would love to see a novel based on his adventures before meeting the trio! Agatha, I'm so, so glad she's standing on her own feet, doing her own thing, on her own terms; her ending was probably one of my favorites.

These books were always comfy for me. Crazy things would happen, but I always knew they would get figured out in the end. That's not to say that Rainbow Rowell didn't have me going through all kinds of emotions with this nearly 600 page novel though! The way Simon was still trying to figure out who he was now that he wasn't the puppet of the Mage had me on such a roller coaster.

"I'm too... broken. I don't know how to be close to people. I don't know how to be quiet. When Baz gets like this with me... When he hands me his heart, I don't know how to hold it. I want to scream. I want to run. Maybe it's part of what the Mage did to me. He said he got me wrong, that I was a cracked vessel. I can't hold on to anything good."

Simon's recovery never felt like it jumped in any way. He's still recovering, and he made mistakes along the way with how he treated his friends and loved ones, but he learned from those. And again, as with the second book, Wayward Son, Rowell showed Baz and Simon working on their relationship constantly throughout the novel. Even though these books are YA, I appreciate Rowell never sugarcoating their relationship to make it all happy-go-lucky.

"This is what people do.
They get close and try to stay there.
They stay.
They keep trying to hold on to each other, even though it's not really possible. I don't think. Because people are always moving, aren't they. But that is what they do. They keep trying.
I'll keep trying.
To keep him well.
To keep him happy..."

I also appreciate the effort Rowell put into tying up as many loose ends as possible. Though there was one that was kind of left a bit open ended, I wasn't upset about that, because it lets the reader imagine the two different ways it can go. Rowell started the Simon Snow series from Fangirl , a story about a girl writing fanfiction about this series. We may have said goodbye to the characters in "officially published" form, but these characters are bound to go on many adventures still through the words of online stories. ( )

Rainbow Rowell - Any Way the Wind Blows: Not what I was looking for from a final book. I mean, we got the (really strange) conflict and the resolution, but it was diluted by a boring central story. #cursorybookreviews #cursoryreviews ( )

I don’t think the constant switching of first person narrators served this Simon Snow novel as well as another strategy might have. The core four return to England, struggle against various smaller monsters and challenges including Simon’s own terrific insecurities, and find some new paths. I wasn’t very invested in Simon’s angst, or Baz’s constant attention to it, but I did like how Penelope and Agatha got chances to figure themselves out. ( )

A fantastic ending to a fantastic series, Any Way the Wind Blows delivers everything readers will want from the end of the Simon Snow saga - even if it's mostly delivered with the twists and "careful what you wish for" attitude typical of Rainbow Rowell.

The third and final book in this trilogy picks up right where the second leaves off, with our intrepid heroes returning to England after their American adventure. Unlike the former two books in the series, however, the characters in Any Way the Wind Blows almost immediately split up, giving us not just different perspectives on the plot but four distinct plots. These tie back together eventually, some sooner than others, showing Rowell's mastery over complex storylines and multiple perspectives. The final culmination lends closure to the characters in satisfying and sometimes unexpected ways. Although other readers may not be wholly satisfied with the epilogue, I found it a perfect way to end the series. ( )

Returning to the world of Simon and Baz is always fun and this novel - the last of the trilogy (must this be so?) - is no exception. The unlikely pair start open this book with some relationship troubles, but they make a resolution to work on things just as they and their friends are pulled into a maelstrom of complications and troubles. I really liked Penny in this book, especially seeing her relationship with Shepard develop, and I loved how she manages to break Shepard's curse. So many plotlines are tied up in this book, it's hard to imagine another one to continue the series (but I'd like to anyway). Overall, fun reading but definitely read the previous two books first!
