Cooney was the first person at my office I can really remember FEELING that he believed in me - he didn't just want me to take on bigger and harder challenges because that's what Orbit needed from me, but because he KNEW I could do it, and he wanted me to prove that to everyone else too. John was an excellent, amazing mentor and you could go to him and talk to him about everything and anything without feeling like you were being judged or wasting his time.

 

He somehow managed to become the Developer Leader that we never thought twice about - of course it was going to be John, because hadn't he somehow been the one wrangling us together when we wanted to all go in different directions all along? I miss him every time I have a difficult time explaining why we should do something this way for usability reasons, every time I try to work on files that say 'Don't change this without speaking to John Cooney first', and every time I'm just trying to figure out how to be as respected and intelligent person possible.

True story, all of these. We need them, and we need them now! I NEED Everneath #3, Shadow & Bone #2, Cinder #2, 3, 4, Seraphina #2, Grave Mercy #2.. and.. well, so many more like right this second. I may implode otherwise.

Oooh I can't wait! Megan has been holding on to her copy of Scarlet for months (I think just so she can watch me beg) and I reaaalllyyyy want to read this already. I've been reading Meyer's writing since her fanfiction days, and it's really awesome to see her rock as an official published author.

Man.. now my grabby hands are getting infinitely worse.

Sometimes when I see reviews of books I loved I'm like 'Oh noessss, why if they hated it and I'm just dumb?', so thank god I'm not the only one who loves this series! Brodi Ashton really does do a GREAT job, and at the end of both books I've been like JUST GIVE ME THE NEXT ONE ALREADY? K? LIEK NOWZ.
