- Inspired by my beautiful @brownbookworm, who started the hashtag #MyBeautifulTruth to share the things people don't see when they meet us or read our work ❀️ Thank you for making a safe space for us to share! . I grew up being constantly told I was ugly in a family of women known for their beauty. I was told this by someone who should have loved me and valued me for myself. I didn't have the right nose, I had a plain face, I was too quiet and shy and awkward. Also, I was stupid and my dreams were worthless. Or so I was led to believe. . I believed this for years until our family broke apart and I broke free: of that person, and of that prison of self-hatred and insecurity. I learned that I could become beautiful by thinking of myself as beautiful. I learned to embrace everything about me that had been picked apart. I learned that I could do ANYTHING I put my mind to, and that no dream was out of reach because I am a person full of want and drive and ability. I seized my own life by the reins and pulled myself upward, and I fought like hell to get here. It's still a fight, every day, but I show up with my punching gloves on. . And I will fight like hell to make sure young girls like the one I was - girls with dreams, girls with hearts full of too much to give, girls with the world ahead of them - know how important and valuable and IN CONTROL they are. I will write fierce, vulnerable, ambitious, loving, complicated, quietly powerful women in every book, because to see and to celebrate yourself is to live your fullest life.

- It's perhaps the smallest #BEA17 #bookhaul you'll see on social media, but if you factor in my lack of time to walk the floor (got these from my publicist and an agent friend) it's a little more impressive? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ . Plus, THE BELLES by the wonderful @brownbookworm and BEA Buzz Book DEAR MARTIN by @getnicced are two of my most anticipated reads!!! . Still mad at myself for leaving my Javits badge at the hotel, which cut down the precious time I had to walk the floor and support friends πŸ˜– I'm so sorry if I missed your signing and couldn't grab an ARC!!! . #bookexpo #bookcon #thebelles #dearmartin #nicstone #dhonielleclayton

- I had a blast at the Penguin family dinner! I got to meet such amazing people, including Tochi Onyebuchi (BEASTS MADE OF NIGHT) and Peter Bognanni (THINGS I'M SEEING WITHOUT YOU), both of whom I will be touring the U.S. with in October (details to come in the next few months). . I also met Marie Lu, Stephanie Perkins, and Kristin Cashore, who are also part of the @penguinteen Game Changers campaign, and Renee Ahdieh, Sarah Dessen, and so many more fabulous authors. Talk about star struck! And best of all I got to hang with my awesome editor Brian Geffen and take a zillion selfies with him 😎 . What a day! And now I have to go to bed because I have a blogger breakfast I need to attend in seven hours 😜 . Thank you for all of your sweet messages and comments ❀️ You all make it worthwhile, my dear friends, and I would hug you all if I could. I haven't had any time to myself to respond, but I will in the coming days. . #authorsofinstagram #dreamscometrue #fotl #forestofathousandlanterns @penguinteen @philomelbooks

- I love my dear friend (and former #PitchWars mentor!!!) @stephanie_garber! She waited all day to see me while I battled flight delays and midtown traffic 😭 so glad we got to reunite! She's a four-month New York Times bestseller for CARAVAL and a superstar author (as I remind her every chance I get) and yet she is THE humblest most down-to-earth person. Love her to pieces!!! πŸ’•πŸ’• . #Repost @stephanie_garber (@get_repost) ・・・ I saw half of NYC today, but the best part of my day so far was seeing @juliecdao 🌟I first met Julie years ago, when she was looking for an agent, and not only is she a very talented writer, she's truly one of the sweetest people. I couldn't be more excited for her or her upcoming fantasy FOREST OF A THOUSAND lanterns! If you're at Book Expo tomorrow make sure to stop by the Penguin booth at 3pm when she's signing ARCs and give her lots of love!! ❀️ #authorsofinstagram
