  4. I'm excited that Don't Breathe a Word is out today so everyone can read it now and know how great it is. I read it several months ago for the Teen Book Scene tour and it still sticks with me now and that is telling for a book for me since I read over 200 books a year. When I can remember characters, scenes and dialog from a book then it is a real winner - so if you haven't read it - go out and buy Don't Breathe a Word - it is awesome!

  29. Tell Me a Secret was one of my favorite reads of 2011. I'm excited for Don't Breathe a Word because I am such a huge fan of TMAS and know DBAW will be just as incredible, maybe even more so. Congrats to you!

  31. So excited for you Holly, Happy book birthday. You deserve the best... love you sis..

  32. I am your friend on FB, Twitter and blogger! : )

    Looked at the illustrated version, which is gorgeous and then went back to my ARC. I only have 100 pages left. Boo. This is one for the re-read shelf, Holly, an amazing accomplishment.

    I want to cheat and say DBaW leaves me breathless, but I won't. I'll say writing, myself leaves me that way, because like you and your novel, my novel and I are connected at places close to the heart.

    Merry Happy Book Birthday! I hope you get the dream house!

    Blessings,

    G.C.

  41. I really wish the playlist dudes would let internationals play the playlists too. I'll definitely be on Youtube checking out each song I don't know of. I love the graphic novel rendition! Very, very cool.

    I'm a bit late, but still, happy book birthday! I'm itching to start reading this, but maybe I'll quickly re-read TMAS beforehand. Refamiliarise myself with the characters.

  42. Thank you, Cass! I'm glad you stopped by, all the way from Australia! Ooh, and I hope you love the songs. I think a lot of them are on youtube.
