Hello, friends!

I’m so excited to share the UK cover for Legendary. Isn’t it spectacular?  The stars will all be silver foil, so it will sparkle next to the gold UK edition of Caraval. There will also be new secret covers hidden beneath the jacket.

If you’d like to pre-order, I will love you forever. Here are a few sites you can use: Waterstones; Amazon.UK; Book Depository (for readers outside the UK); Hachette Australia.

I don’t currently have any information about UK special editions, but for US readers there will be a special B&N edition of Legendary.

And for those of you in the US, specifically the California Bay Area, I’ll be at Kepler’s Books February 6th. The lovely Melissa Albert is going on tour for the Hazel Wood and I’ll be in conversation with her. If you’re in the area, come hang out with us!




Hi friends!

Edits for Legendary are done. I’ve spent over two years working on this book so it’s amazing to be able to say that. I’ve poured my heart into this story and I can’t wait to share it with all of you in May.

Until then, I’m excited to say that I can reveal the book’s full summary:

A heart to protect. A debt to repay. A game to win.

After being swept up in the magical world of Caraval, Donatella Dragna has finally escaped her father and saved her sister Scarlett from a disastrous arranged marriage. The girls should be celebrating, but Tella isn’t yet free. She made a desperate bargain with a mysterious criminal, and what Tella owes him no one has ever been able to deliver: Caraval Master Legend’s true name.

The only chance of uncovering Legend’s identity is to win Caraval, so Tella throws herself into the legendary competition once more—and into the path of the murderous heir to the throne, a doomed love story, and a web of secrets…including her sister’s. Caraval has always demanded bravery, cunning, and sacrifice. But now the game is asking for more. If Tella can’t fulfill her bargain and deliver Legend’s name, she’ll lose everything she cares about—maybe even her life. But if she wins, Legend and Caraval will be destroyed forever.

Welcome, welcome to Caraval…the games have only just begun.

Legendary releases May 29, 2018, but you can pre-order it now (and I will be forever grateful). You can also add Legendary to your Goodreads shelf.

Some of you have been asking about my UK cover, and if there will be signed editions available for pre-order. I LOVE these questions (and I always welcome questions). I can’t share anything at the moment, but I’m hoping to share more soon. xo

Happy Caraval paperback day!

I kid you not, I have been counting down until today because my fantastic UK publisher has put out not one, or two, but three magical editions of the Caraval paperback and I am in love with all of them.


The edition with the red stained edges is exclusive to Waterstones, and the edition with the gold stained edges can only be found at Tesco–so if you’re interested in one of those you might want to shop quickly before they run out. Although I think the main edition is just as magical; it’s pictured below, because I had to share a photo that showed off this book’s beautiful spine.

IMG_8134 2The opening round of the Goodreads Choice Awards just began and I’m thrilled to share that Caraval has been nominated in two different categories! It was nominated for Best Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy as well as Best Debut Goodreads Author.

I’m stunned with happiness. Today, was actually a really rough day for me, so it was incredible to end with this amazing news. Thank you so much to everyone who’s read, or added, or rated Caraval on their Goodreads–you were all a part of making this happen.

If you have a Goodreads account make sure to vote for your favorite books by November 5!


Hey, friends! People ask me all the time if Caraval is getting a sequel. I love this question, but for months I haven’t been able to spill any specific information. So I’m thrilled to announce that last Friday Entertainment Weekly revealed the cover, the title, and the release date for the Caraval sequel, Legendary!

Legendary has taken me over two years to write. It’s been a difficult journey, but this book now owns my heart. It’s from Tella’s perspective and as I’ve written her story, not only has she surprised me, she’s become one of my favorite characters.

Legendary will be releasing May 29, 2018, but you can pre-order it now (click here for various retailers).  I will be forever grateful if you pre-order, and I promise this story will surprise you–it definitely surprised me! Also, don’t forget to add it to your Goodreads.
