current mood: jubilant

So.  The Summer I Turned Pretty is finally, officially out!  (You can't see me, but I am high-fiving myself.)  Last night, I had a really great event at RJ Julia in CT.  It's the sweetest bookstore, so charming, with cupcakes and black and white photos and the best staff ever.  (The best next to Books of Wonder, my other favorite indie.)  The best part was (other than all the adorable girls that came out), they gave me a gift!  I got to pick out any book I wanted in the whole store!  I waffled between The Help by Kathryn Stockett and The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet.  I ended up going with T.S.  

Tomorrow night, I have a reading at the New York Public Library, Jefferson Market branch at 6pm.  I am reading with Emma McLaughlin, Nicola Kraus, Kieran Scott, Susane Colasanti, and Nick Burd.  Come out and say hey!  This Thursday, I will be signing books at the Lincoln Center Barnes and Noble at 3:30.  And, this Sunday, I will be reading AND signing at Borders at 2pm in Glen Allen, Virginia.  

And now, I am going to eat some Cinnamon Toast Crunch and call it a night.

AS - yay!!

I cannot WAIT to get this book, Miss Jenny!! I absolutely </b>adored</b> Shug and was definitely an insta-fan of yours. All I can say is thank you so very much for sharing your talent with the world, and as a future educator of elementary students - thank you for providing quality literature for younger students to read.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I'm so very much looking forward to reading your newest book! :D

Adrienne and I each bought a copy today. =)

I wish Books of Wonder was open later. They close at 8PM, when all the real little kids go to bed.

oh, also...

alexis again...
i was reading your bio and saw you loved clueless. (I guess your icon wasn't enough for me to deduce that.)
My best friend and I "are" Cher and Dionne, even though I'm not blonde (or white), and throughout the day we permit ourselves to look like total dorks by saying different lines from the movie. Sometimes we even sing rollin' with the homies or the mentoes song.
Clueless is love, that's why. :)

Alexis again. :) I bought the book (FINALLY) today...then i finished it. I had my window open even though it was 8 PM when i started it and I played some jack johnson. it felt like the best night ever. I laughed out loud and almost cried, but I was strong. This is going to sound really cheesy, but I kept thinking about the kind of relationships I have right now and how they're like Belly's.
once again...amazing. my hands are all warm from my excitement and ear-to-ear smile. :) never stop writing, or else i might die. (a little dramatic. haha.)
