Congrats to Across The Universe!

MATCHED is still on the NYT list (#8), and now I just noticed that ACROSS THE UNIVERSE has made it too (#7)! Hugely excited to see dystopian books on the bestseller lists, and many congrats to Penguin family Beth Revis and Ally Condie. Both are just fantastic novels. Pick them up if you haven't had a chance to!

I plan on getting my hands on both of those books! I especially want "Across the Universe". I am happy for the success of dystopian novels, but I hope YA doesn't get too caught up in the genre like they do with vampires. You're book's coming out later this year, right?

Nini: Yeah, Legend is coming out in November of this year. I think the genre should be fairly intact for the near future; there seem to be a lot of high-quality reads and I think that helps!
