If you didn’t know, REACHED has been doing increasingly well since being released just about 2 weeks ago. Ally Condie, our awesome author, took to her blog to post some links to articles, reviews, etc. Check them out below!
In case you missed it MTV.com posted the official Reached playlist!
Amazon has named REACHED as one of the best books of 2012 for Kids and Teens. It’s currently #1 on the list!
Entertainment Weekly posted a review of Reached.
“There’s no shame in crying at the end.”
There will also be an interview with Ally in the November 23rd issue of the magazine (the one with Star Wars on the cover).
USA Today featured an article on the series.
Author Ally Condie says a “casual conversation about marriage” with her husband, an economics professor at Brigham Young University, triggered the most popular series of books for teens since The Hunger Games.
John Green, author of The Fault In Our Stars, mentioned Reached in a tweet and on a Tumblr blog post (Ally mentioned that she’s a fan of his work).
Seventeen and Just Jared Jr. both chose REACHED as their book club pick.
We could never imagine our free will being taken away or having our lives pre-planned for us or having arranged marriages come back into style.
Penguin Teen (publisher of the series) did an author spotlight of Ally.
What’s your favorite thing about your book? I like the endings of each of the books in the series. It’s fun to take a character to a specific point in their journey and have that sense of arrival…and also that something new might be on the horizon for them.
Also, just a reminder, Ally is on a book tour for REACHED right now. Check out the schedule here to see if she’ll be in your city soon.
