Lizzeth "Too many books so little time" I´m not realy sure where things went wrong. I loved yout EIT series, and really enjoyed The artists trilogy, but I just feel like I don´t want to keep up with your books anymore. Nothing has been the same since 2013. Feels like I´m breaking up with my highschool crush. I do still have hope. Hope that maybe Ava Palomino´s story won´t suck as much and I will fall inlove with your writting once again.


Laura *Little Read Riding Hood* Congrats on both the USA Today and the NYT spots! Well deserved and long overdue!

Nikki Karina,
I LOVED The Artist Trilogy books so far, but I have to say....your EIT books are messing with my mind and life (in the best way possible that is). I have been reading all of them for the past two weeks, and I cannot get them out of my head! I'm starting to think Perry and Dex are real people. I'm dreading the wait for Ashes to Ashes. BRILLIANT, amazing, addicting characters and writing! <3

Danielle Aldrich I'm getting ready to start Old Blood & can't wait. This has to be my new favorite series. I thought Sin & Needles was good. This just blows it away for me. I'm like an addict & Experiment In Terror is my crack I can't get enough!!!!!! I keep telling my self I'm going to read slower to make it last longer but I can't. I think I may need to start a support group for myself & my friends because I've got them reading this now too :)
