blog tour begins!

I’m probably going to be posting every day until MATCHED comes out. I hope it isn’t Ally/Matched overload and you all leave, never to return. But the bloggers have been AMAZING and the interviews have been so fun–how can I not share the links? It is impossible.

First of all, check out the official website for MATCHED. It is awesome. There’s even an app where you can Match with someone. And a scary clicky camera. This is such a beautiful site and I adore everything about it. Kudos to Penguin and the designers!

Second of all, the wonderful Brenna Yovanoff (author of THE REPLACEMENT) is hosting me on her blog this week. Click here to visit Brenna’s site.

And here are some awesome blog interviews. This one here at Forever YA still makes me laugh out loud whenever I think about the fact that they MASHed me and I married Draco Malfoy and bore four of his children.

Today I’m over at Mundie Moms (thank you, Mundie Moms)!

And the wonderful bloggers at YA Reads have chosen MATCHED as their Book of the Month for November. And Reading Teen is featuring Matched as their Reading Clean Spotlight this month, which I think is such an honor. Click here for their feature and for an awesome vlog.

Big thanks to Anna and Allison at Penguin for organizing and coordinating the blog tour and keeping me on track. I am so scattered lately. If there are links I’ve forgotten to post, blame me, and blame this sequel. I am spending every second I can writing this thing. I love this book–don’t get me wrong, it’s been very fun to write–but it just can’t quit me.

P.S. The trip was amazing. Big thank-yous to all of the booksellers who took time out of their busy days to come chat about MATCHED and about books in general. And to Katy, Allison, Sheila, Allan, Dawn, and Biff at Penguin for making it all happen. It was one of those experiences that was lovely to live and that I will always remember. Especially because: look at this picture of me with these excellent booksellers in Chicago! Not only were they incredibly nice, but they also allowed me (at 5′ 3″) to look tall. (Note to self: Ally, pull down your skirt. No one wants to see your knees.)
