Oh. My. Freaking. God.

This is me, standing up on my chair applauding an empty room like an idiot. 10 minutes ago, I read the last page of THE POWER OF SIX. Nine minutes ago, I called my mother in hysterics telling her she must–MUST–read the I AM NUMBER FOUR series. Here’s how the convo went:

Mom: Sounds like you loved them. I’ll read them.

Me: When. Now?

Mom: I’ll buy them when they’re all out.

Me: No. You will buy the first two today and then loathe the world that the third isn’t out yet.

Mom: False.

Me: If you don’t buy these books right freaking now I’ll disown you as a mother.

Mom: I’ll think about it. (Long pause). You still there?

Me: I just bought them and shipped them to your house. You will read them.


To the world, I say this now: This series is the best series I have ever read. It pains my heart to admit this, but it’s better than Twilight. Better than Hunger Games. Better than an open tab at my favorite restaurant after spending 3 years in a dungeon-y prison.

Buy it. Do it! And then email me so we can freak out over how awesome it is!!!!
