I’m out on the road this week traveling, but I want to point you in the direction of some fun REACHED links that have been popping up on the internet:

*MTV.com put the official playlist for REACHED up on their blog. I’ll post it again on this site later, but for now, MTV.com is the only place you can get it.

*Amazon named REACHED as one of its Best Books of 2012 for Kids and Teens. (!!!!!!)

*Entertainment Weekly gave REACHED a great review! Check it out (and the print edition also had an interview with me). SO EXCITING!

*USA Today wrote an article about the series here!

*John Green mentioned REACHED on his twitter and his tumblr. I may or may not have had to take a screen capture of both. (I can’t figure out how to link to the exact tweet, but if you scroll down far enough, it’s there.) I admire John’s work very much (and also him as a person–so many of us say we want to change the world and help kids, but he actually does it).

Seventeen Magazine selected REACHED as their book club pick!

And so did JustJaredJr.com! Teenage me is thrilled about both of these things (and so is thirtysomething me).

*Penguin Teen did a special author spotlight  here. (I love Penguin Teen.)

Again, many thanks to all of you for all your support here on the blog, on twitter, facebook, email, and in real life. It means a lot to me. (Also–if you are leaving a comment on the blog and wondering why it isn’t showing, that’s because when we went to the new site design a few months ago, it changed comments so that now I have to approve them–which helps with the spam. And…sometimes I get behind. But I always catch up eventually! 😉 )

Finally, for those of you who are doing NaNoWriMo, keep it up!! You can do it! You’re almost there, and you are awesome.

I’m in Houston tonight, then on to Miami/Coral Gables, Washington, D.C./Bethesda, and Raleigh, N.C. Hope to see some of you out there! (More tour info here.)

    Congrats on Reached! It was a lovely ending to a great series. I would add “Not Over You” by Gavin Degraw to a playlist for the whole trilogy. If you think about Xander singing it, it’s perfect. I mean even the first lyric…”Dreams, that’s where I have to go to see your beautiful face” works perfectly with the dreams tracked in Society. It’s perfect 🙂
