NPR List

So there's this thing NPR is doing. They've rounded up a list of 200+ YA books, and they're asking people to vote for the best teen books. Excuse me if I become a little incoherent.

Under the Never Sky made this list. Which is WIN. It's so much WIN to just be on this list, that I can't stand it. Really. Can't. I am humbled. I am proud. I am shaking.

If you're a fan of the book, here's a chance to show it. I appreciate it. Very, very much. And you can vote for up to ten titles -- and oh man, if there aren't some amazing novels over there.

The link is here. 

I just noticed who I'm sandwiched between on the list.

I'm going to go peel myself off the floor now.


  1. I voted and oh course your book was one of my 10 choices :D

  2. Good for you!!! You deserve to be there, I can't wait to read book 2!

  3. Congrats! That is awesome. I was given an ARC of Under The Never Sky by my local bookstore (they know me well) and I held off on reading it for a long time because I wasn't sure if it sounded like something I would like. One day I picked it up on a whim while in between books just to check out the first chapter or so and I couldn't put it down! I devoured Aria and Perry's story. When I was finished I recommended it to anyone who would listen! I just ordered a hardcover because I love it so much. I am so grateful that my bookstore handed me that ARC because without it I very well might have missed out on one of my favorite books. You deserve to be on that list and I can't wait to see what Through The Ever Night brings!

  4. Of course I'll go vote!

    Also, don't be so surprised! It's a really good book :)

  5. WOW, that was difficult! I think all these books deserve multiple awards for what they teach people of all ages, time and time again. Scrolling through the list, I remembered favorites I read when I was in high school and Jr. High, and remembered how each and every one of them affected me while I was growing up.

    And of course I voted for Under the Never Sky!

    Congrats on making this list, and without a doubt, affecting a lot of people's lives with your fantastic story. :)

  6. First of all, congrats! Not that your amazing book wasn't expected to be on there anyways...:-)
    And you don't even have to ask for me to vote for Under the Never Sky. It was soooo good. You've earned the right to have your book on that list. :-)

  7. Thank you! Appreciate the support! Really do. <333

  8. I voted before I saw this on your blog and of course Under the Never Sky was in my top 10 =)

  9. Wow, UTNS is in exalted company! How wonderful! Added my vote, naturally...
