Right this way, please.
God bless McNally Jackson.
Subject: WHY ARE ALL THE BOOKS YOU SUGGEST DEVASTATING
Jesus fucking christ the last ten pages alone of In the Woods. The 4am phone call made my mouth drop openly on the El and I didn’t give a fuck. It all made me so angry and upset. Tana is good, but oh so cruel, just cruel.
Going to pretend I can focus on other things now, thanks.
I’m really good at recommending books, you guys. (Also by my count, Dustin is the… 13th person I’ve gotten hooked on Tana.)
But, ahem, don’t forget who got YOU hooked on Tana.
YA meme » Ten series or books [7/10] » The Darkest MindsThey were never scared of the kids who might die, or the empty spaces they would leave behind. They were afraid of us— the ones who lived.
I’m getting very attached to Lucas Til as Liam—I think he could drawl out a very convincing “darlin’.” (Did I punctuate that right?) Also TDM fans are genius graphic designers who continually blow me away.
There are some things authors dream of—some things that they know are so far out of the realm of possibility, they keep them locked inside as a secret, little hope for the future. Something like this isn’t a goal, because it’s one of those things completely out of your control, but like I said it’s a little hope that drives you to improve and grow and keep going. I am totally and completely shocked, but, more importantly, so incredibly grateful to all of you for supporting The Darkest Minds series. One of the most amazing things for me has been watching you share the books with your friends and families, hearing about how many of you have convinced your libraries to carry it, seeing your GIF reactions here on Tumblr, your tweets your reviews—this all adds up to something we call “word of mouth,” and it’s made all the difference to these books and to my life.

Happy birthday, NEVER FADE! I’m so excited US/Canada residents are finally able to start reading today! I don’t have release information on foreign editions, but each publisher might have the dates up on their website.
It should be in a good number of B&Ns and Walmarts, but you might want to call ahead and make sure they’ve stocked it. If you have an ereader, you can obviously download it instantly. :)
More good news: THE DARKEST MINDS is still 99 cents to download on your Kindle, iPad, and Nook.
Let me know what you think of NEVER FADE, but please be sure to mark your spoilers!
Thank you all SO much again for your excitement and patience over the past few months!! I wish I had some words of wisdom to say on this occasion, but, really, I just hope you guys enjoy it!
Yay yay yay!! THE DARKEST MINDS is brilliant and NEVER FADE is even better—fellow readers, download/buy it now. I promise you won’t be disappointed. And seriously, the TDM ebook is less than a buck, there’s no way you can go wrong. Order it from Amazon, B&N, or iTunes, devour it, weep, post your feels and look at the gorgeous Ruby/Liam fanart, read the bridge novella In Time, then go straight to Never Fade. Then join the rest of us in the torturous wait for Book 3.
(Took me a few months, but here we go with The Dude Reads series - soon as I finish any book worth reading, I’m gonna tell you fine people all about it. And now, onto the inaugural. I’ll try like hell not to spoil anything, but if you’re super intent on knowing nothing about a book and you…
Yes to all of this—this book is capital-A Amazing and should be required reading in all American high schools.

This is the jacket my mom’s copy from the 60’s had—I read and handled that book so much that the jacket tore, and now it’s safely tucked away somewhere. (I hope. I should try to find it… Maybe I could frame it?)
Fox has just snagged the television rights to Pathrick Rothfuss’ awesome, best-selling fantasy series The Kingkiller Chronicles. That’s practically the only news we have, but for those people who have read the amazing first two books, The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear, it is officially time to freak out.
I don’t know if any of y’all enjoy Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss, but I do, and I am both excited and frightened by these news which are probably old, but I only just found out.
For those who haven’t read it, its an amazing piece of fiction: well written, brilliant and enthralling. Not a Y/A, but definitely worth checking out for lovers of Fantasy
I just finished reading The Name of the Wind today—really enjoyed it and totally recommend, but goddamn Patrick Rothfuss can’t tie up a plotline to save his life. I know it’s a trilogy, but after 650 pages some sort of closure or any answers would be nice!
