  1. Hi Mr. Westerfeld!

    I just wanted to let you know I have been a fan since I first picked up Uglies in 2005. I was ten years old and loved to read. So much so that I’d beg my mom to bring me to Borders (rip) on the weekends and I would plop down between the bookshelves reading for hours like it was my own personal library. I do hold a little bit of guilt that maybe that helped put them out of business, but I digress! I remember the day I stumbled upon your books. It was the first time I learned books even came in a series. It changed reading for me, it meant I could postpone that end-of-book-sadness because the story continued. I got both Uglies and Pretties and blew through them in 5 days. I stayed up all night reading. I was fully immersed in Tally’s world, telling my parents to stop being so brain-missing, calling my sister a bubblehead. I waited patiently for each of the other two books and got them the minute they were in stock at my bookstore. When I finished Extras I was distraught. It was the most wonderful reading experience I’d ever had and then it was over. Since then I have read hundreds of books. I have an insane collection my husband calls me a book hoarder. They’re my trophies! But absolutely none sparkle like the Uglies series does. Seventeen years later and I found myself in an endless cycle of solo books, and I wondered if maybe I should find a series to read. I thought about re-reading Uglies but my husband asked if you’ve published any other books since then. Duh. Why did I never think of that?? I knew I married him for a reason! The genuine shock I experienced discovering that not only you did write lots more books, but you continued the series. My jaw was on the floor. And I wouldn’t have to wait for any of them- they were all available right now for me to snatch up. And I did right then. This was about a week ago and as I’m writing this I just slipped my bookmark into the 185th page of Youngbloods. It hit me that this was really it, that there wasn’t another after this one, so I felt I needed to pour my love of this series into this comment. It has been such a joy to be in this universe again, and this reading experience is truly a full circle moment for me as a reader. So I just want to say thank you, from both my 10 year old self and 29 year old self. And I CANNOT wait for the movie. The smoke lives!

  2. You saved me from the trap of the Social Economy. I’m not a twitch streamer PRECISELY because I read Extras, and that is a fact I’ll take with me.

    Stoked to see this post. Awesome, weird and random time to decide to show appreciation for one of my favorite authors.
    Thanks for making this easy, and public.

  3. I am so excited! Though, we need more updates on the movie! I heard some casting websites and recent screenings and personally, I wished to have been on set or at least to see the screening! The only thing helping me contain my excitement for the time until the movie comes, are the people who claim to have watched the screening. They say it is great!

    Much happiness!
    Deny 😀 😀 😀
