Happy reading!


  1. I've only read 3 or 4 of her books, but I've really enjoyed them. She's such a lovely person - Every time I read an interview with her, I'm inspired to read another one of her books. Do you have an all-time favorite out of the 9 you've read?

    1. There would be a tie between Dreamland, her first book, and Someone Like You. The students love Someone Like You - which is a popular 8th gr booktalk - which leads them to discover her other books!

  2. I've read several of her books and am on a mission to read them ALL! I love her.

    Thanks for the spotlight-I subscribed to her newsletter. :)



Thanks for chatting! I love comments and look forward to reading yours! I may not reply right away, but I am listening! Keep reading and don't forget to be awesome!
