I have some wonderful news. REACHED received its first industry review, and it is a STARRED review from KIRKUS! The full review isn’t up online yet, but I can quote the part they do have up online: “While staying true to the science fiction and romance at the core of Matched (2010) and Crossed (2011), the trilogy’s breathless finale blossoms into a medical thriller too, adding breadth and resonance.”
I have a few very fun things to share that people are doing to get ready for REACHED:
1. You can find a great countdown widget for REACHED here.
2. MATCHED and CROSSED facts are up here on tumblr. I love these facts…there is a new one ever day…and it’s a great way to just refresh your memory of the books without having to do a full-on reread. But, should you also want to do a full-on reread…
4. And, I mentioned this on twitter, but I have another song for the REACHED playlist: “Be Still” by The Killers. It’s just perfect, for both Ky and Xander, for different reasons. And yes, technically I discovered it AFTER the book was finished, but I have to include it.
Okay. That’s it for today. Within the past month, I’ve been to Edmonton, Denver, Austin, and Gainesville, GA, and my house is a mess and my office…we shall not speak of it. Hope you are all having a wonderful October so far!!
