From my mail

Every week I'm fortunate to get mail from readers, both handwritten letters that arrive in my post office box as well as e-mails that arrive in my inbox. Sometimes the handwritten letters include artwork too, which I LOVE!! But all of the letters are awesome, really. Thank you for taking the time to write to me, dear readers!!

Here's a taste of what readers have told me lately:

"I am a big fan of your book It's Raining Cupcakes. I love reading it because I can connect to Isabel so much -- the way she wants to travel, see different places." ~ Aricel, age 10

"I know you probably won't ever see this, but it's worth a shot. I just wanted to let you know that I am your biggest fan EVER. My favorite book that you wrote is It's Raining Cupcakes." ~ Laine

"I like your books Caitlin's Lucky Charm and Mia's Golden Bird. I cannot wait until the 3rd book comes out!!!" ~ Kimberly

"I quote your books all the time! Some of my favorites have to be "It's been a year, we should be okay. Somewhat okay, anyway," "It's like 4th of July all the time. You don't even have to kiss for sparks to fly," and "she's a one in a million friend, and I'm glad she's mine." I have recommended your books to plenty of people but I know that no one will understand my obsession!" ~ Whitney

"Hi, I just wanted to tell you how much you inspired me to read. I had never read a book until my teacher introduced me to Chasing Brooklyn." ~ J.

"I have hated to read since as long as I can remember. My little brother goes to the library quite a bit and a couple months ago I decided to go with him. I saw one of your books and I decided to get it. I now love to read your books. All of them are so good!" ~ S


It's summer! Are you excited? I AM SO EXCITED!!! Read lots of books, okay? Because here's another quote from I Heart You, You Haunt Me: "Books and summertime go together.
