Extras at #2

Hey, I got a little homecoming prezzie from you guys:



Being at number 2 is totally awesome! (But, I have to say, seeing who’s at number 1 kind of makes me wonder if all the sales were counted, or whether a certain Supreme Court stepped in. I’m just saying . . . )

And wait, look at the paperback list, where Uglies bursts forth after a long absence. Can you feel the power of the series! And the dump bins! And the word of mouthiness!


Thanks to all of you who’ve been talking it up to your friends.

  1. =O…hey, first comment..hah, havent done that.

    so, basically, i’ve spread the uglies series to eight of my friends in the school. 4 of them have bought the books. i have a huge line for extras, lol, now that i finished.


    you rock scott

  3. noo way totally fawesome scott-la. i love how uglies always gets the extra boost everytime a new book in the series comes out. its always so happy-making knowing all those people are getting hooked on these books too.

  4. Also I just noticed that Uglies and Extras is rated 12 & up but Specials is 14 & up. I guess it’s beacuse Specials is a little more “graphic”

    Sorry for the double post.

    lol i told all my friend on AIM as soon as i read that and thre like….obsessed much and i was like why yes i am

  6. That is amazing. Go Extras, Uglies, and Specials! I am kind of sad that they were outsold by High School Musical 2 in paperbacks, ha ha. But hey, you outsold Eldest! I think thats a pretty amazing feat!

  7. that is SO KICK!!! that’s gonna do a number on ur face rank!!!!! congrats, scott-la!!!! u rock more than i can say!!!!!

  9. That’s so fawesome!!!! And Uglies and Specials are beating Eldest! Dude, that’s saying something right there!
    Yep, Scott you can always count on us to be totaly blabber-mouths! πŸ™‚

  11. That’s wicked, except for the High School Musical 2 part. It’s the most bogus thing I’ve seen in a long time. Along with Ana’s Story. I mean, come on, how can that bad of a movie (HSM 2) be that good of a book? It’s just so disapointing what people are reading these days. HSM barely seems young adult, more for kids because it’s all wish fullfilment and clichés.

  12. wow. i just thought of something…what if Uglies was turned into a video game…crazy thought i know but it’d be awesome if you think about it x]

  13. heh heh heh… supreme court… what?! High school musical?! thats just retarded. now the movie’s not too horrible but the book?? WHAT!? cum on! seiously, who reads those?? blech. Uglies is WAY better. and i agree nanner-la, uglies would be a FAWESOME video game. CONGRATS SCOTT-LA!!

  14. wait… homecoming? like parades and football games. no, wait. ooooohhhhh! like u going HOME. hehehe. i get it now! *smacks forehead with palm*

  15. πŸ˜€ HUZZAH!!! πŸ˜€ the wise readers have spoken!

    omg, that is SOOOOO exciting!!!!!

    is that the fastest that any of scott’s book have reached the top ten?
    is that the HIGHEST any of scott’s books have gotten on the top ten?

    congratulations to you!

    and whether or not the Supreme Court stepped in, i have a feeling that a number of copies of jenna bush’s book were bought because of who she is, not how well she writes. so GO, SCOTT, for making it to number two on writing ability, not celebrity!
    8) the 8) cool 8) smilies 8) salute 8) you 8) !!! 8)

  16. Omg, that is so cool scott-la, way to go, u no it almost makies me feel kinda important and cool, because i read the book adnstff, so ya, i have to go, bi!

  17. OMG yesssssss. and u’re right. there must have been something wrong because Ana’s Story doesn’t seem so interesting.

  18. Congrats!!! You definitly deserve it, and I think your right about the Jenna Bush book, no way was that actual sales, she had some help from her father……

  19. Scott, I love, I really do, but The Book Theif, in my opinion, was better than Uglies. Speacials and Extras were my favorite books in the Uglies series (It’s a bit of a stretch, seeing as all four are in my top 10 books of all time), and yet I still think that The Book Theif should be where it is.

  20. OMG that is sooo cool!!

    I bet that more audults are buting Ana’s story than kids, because it was written by Bush.

    I JUST finished Extras. Wow, I am really mad at teachers right now. They enjoy punishing us with homework when we would like to read. How rude.


    I’ve noticed somthing funny. Before Scott had this book out, there were maybe…15 main people on here. And now there’s like 30-50 people. Scott’s face rank suuure went up! lol jk πŸ™‚

  21. yep it did. i think all our face ranks just went up to. since everyone nose us and all. the PEEPS that comment every day. ya no…

    but…WHAT IS UP WITH THAT HSM 2 BOOK BEIN ON THAT LIST?!?!?! i mean seriously. that movie was NOT very good at all. the only thing that made it not totally horrifying to watch was the songs. and books cant have songs in them! WHY WOULD ANYBODY BUY IT!?! and it says 12 AND UP! nobody 12 AND UP would want to read a BRAIN-MISSING book like that! UUUHHHGGG!

    phew! that felt good. ok im smiley again. πŸ˜€ see?

    by the way, Emily-wa, you are so rong. i read that book. UGLIES, PRETTIES, SPECIALS, and EXTRAS are like TEN TIMES BETTER than it.

  22. Is the Uglies trilogy movie gonna have open auditions for the part of Tally? Like auditions for people without agents? Thanks soooo much you guys ar awesome! =) Also, links would be great.. For people without agents. Thanks and I already emailed Scott Westerfeld but I know he can reply better on his blog.. Totally icey =)of the book. Also, do you know websites that say if there are going to be auditions open to the public? Is there an age thing like only 14 years old or whatever? IÒ€ℒm not 14 but still lol. Also, is there going to be a 5th Uglies book? Or a 4rth Midnighters book? If there is a 5th midnighters book can it pretty pretty please be about tallywa??? Thanks and please answer all my questions! thanks guys. What the heck?? High School Musical 2 BEAT UGLIES? See the movie people or read a good book (coughs) UGLIES!!! OMG!! How could they do this to us?? I am honestly disqusted.

  23. Extras was in the november issue of cosmogirl as one of their favorites and must haves! I was really excited when I saw this.

    and everytime I read another one of your books, I always tell my friends, “you should really read his booksss. pleeeasee.” I always want someone to talk to about them. =)

    great job on extras, I’ll be waiting for your next new book =)

  24. Jeezum who’s buying that snoody #1 book? Psh. But if Extra’s was number 1, it would deffinatly not be snoody.

  25. YAY!!! number TWO!!! whoooo!
    i started to read the Book Theif once… i couldn’t get very far at all. it was lacking something… i’m not sure what, though… but i felt like i was suffocating when i read it. i know that sounds stupid, but it’s true. maybe lack of detail?
    a bunch of people @ my school r reading Uglies now!!! yay! the school library just got the first three ones. and the public library just got all of scott-sensei’s (it should probaly be westerfeld-sensei, but i like the way scott-sensei sounds ;)) YA books! yay!

  26. This has been repeated a bunch throughout these comments, but seriously.
    High School Musical? 2?
    And Gossip Girl?

    I don’t think there are words for how much sense that does not make.
    Sometimes I feel like giving the world a giant literature lesson.

    Please… [insert eyeroll here]
