I had the best time in Aspen!! Thanks so much to @clubmonaco for hosting, to @explorebooksellers for bringing the 📚, & to my dear friends @jvmehra & @stacykaplan5 for being incredible salespeople (& helping me model Club Monaco’s new styles!) .
Colorado! If you’re in the Aspen/Snowmass area tomorrow, come see me at Club Monaco! I'll be chatting futuristic fashion and signing books ✨👠🥂 Bubbles and snacks will be served, Club Monaco is offering $25 off your purchase, PLUS I might have a copy or two of The Towering Sky to give away! Hope to see some of you then!

How amazing are these photos of modern Chinese cities? They are giving me such Thousandth Floor vibes! (Especially the second pic, of the stacked apartments in Hong Kong—it’s almost like Ready Player One!)

I bet a lot of you know what this is!! 😳🙈 For the first draft of my new project, I decided to track my word count. This was my first time monitoring WC and to be honest, I’m not really sure how much it helped (as you can see, some days were far more productive than others!)… but I will try it again on my next first draft. Now I’m heading into revisions, so I’ll pace myself by chapter instead of by daily words.
For those of you who are wondering, the letters in parentheses are names of the characters in my new project...!
This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to the winners: @literpairy, @agingerlyreview, @beths.books, and @bibliophile_nikki!!
The Towering Sky comes out next month! To celebrate, I’ll be doing lots of giveaways in upcoming weeks. Today I’m giving away four signed+personalized copies of the UK edition of The Dazzling Heights!
To enter, comment below with the color that appears most often on your #bookshelf . Do you gravitate towards brightly colored books or do you like more neutral/dark covers? (I have to say that I really love this sparkly blue one!!) As always, bonus entries for tagging friends in the comments. 💙*
this giveaway is domestic US only, but don’t worry, there will be an international one soon!

We came from afar just to say bonsoir 😉🇫🇷🇺🇸💃
I hope you all had a fun & relaxing 4th of July, wherever you were celebrating! We’ve had the most incredible week in France—I am (as always) sad to leave, but it’s time to return to my writing desk ❤️
The news is distressing and we could all use a few moments of looking at something pretty. Here is the German edition of The Dazzling Heights—or in German, Gefährliche Sehnsucht, which means “Dangerous Yearnings” (It reminds me of Dangerous Liaisons, my favorite novel from French class… and of course, the inspiration for Cruel Intentions)! This book comes out in Germany next week from @ravensburgerbuchverlag. Happy #foreigneditionsfriday , I hope we can all inject a little bit of sparkle into the world today ✨⭐️✨
The #bellesandbrujastour is coming to Houston! Come see me, @zoraidasolo, @brownbookworm, @marimancusi, & @jaimequestell at @murderbooks this Sunday at 2 PM! I can’t wait to chat with these brilliant ladies, and also to show them what tacos taste like in Houston 😉 #thebelles#brujaborn
So ridiculously proud of my sister @lizmcgee12, the phi beta kappa, thesis-award-winning graduate!! (And she’s off to work at @waltdisney_company in global strategy!) We love you so much and cannot wait to see what this next chapter holds for you. Always and forever your biggest fan 🧡🖤👯♀️✨
Back in my happy place 🧡🖤 Are you guys library workers or café workers, or do you work from home? I still get my best work done in libraries—it’s hard not to feel inspired when you’re surrounded by so many books!
Berlin, the city with an independent bookstore on every corner (and seriously fantastic signage ❤️) Thank you so much @ravensburgerbuchverlag for including me in this year’s #loveletterconvention ! #bücherliebe#bücherwurm
