Stephanie Perkins Blog About Stephanie Books On Writing News Extras


Thank You, Dear Readers

Thank you, Paris. Our relationship has been as unexpected as it has been extraordinary.

To those who are new to my blog: Thank you for taking the time to say hello, and thank you for taking the time to say hello again. I love seeing you here. I hope we'll get to know each other better in the coming months, and I hope you'll stick around for the figgy pudding.

To those who have been reading my blog for some time now: Thank you for your continued support, your enthusiastic well-wishes, and your delightful comments. I love being a part of your life, even if it is this strange, tiny one. Next year will be big for me. I hope I'll make you proud.


  1. Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas, Stephanie!

    Oh, and I had to chuckle at seeing "figgy pudding." Reminded me (as it always does) of the Muppet Christmas CD with John Denver in it.

    Muppets: *Singing* "Now bring us some figgy pudding, now bring us some figgy pudd..."

    Miss Piggy: "PIGGY Pudding!!??"

    Gonzo: "No, Miss Piggy. FIGGY pudding. Made with figs." *Murmurs* ".....And bacon."

    Miss Piggy: *Mutters* "WHAT??!"

  2. HAPPY HOLIDAYS Stephanie!!! Hope you have a fabulous day!

  3. Hope your holidays are filled with rest, good food, dreams of Paris (the trip is coming up, right?) and the occasional angelic intervention...when needed.

    Love you!


  4. Happy Holidays! Thank you for all your funny, interesting, and all-around enjoyable posts :)

  5. Happy Holidays! Yay you in Paris!

  6. I've never had figgy pudding (piggy or otherwise), but you can pass me one of those gingerbread truffles!

  7. Can't wait to learn about your adventures in 2010 and read your book!!

  8. No, no, thank YOU for all the great book recommendations and delicious HBMs and brilliant writing advice and funny videos and just being an altogether delightful and lovely place to visit.

  9. Happy Holidays, Stephanie! 2010 is going to be a fabulous year...I can feel it!

  10. There's an award for you at my blog if you want it :D

    (And yes, it's one of those that asks you to pass it on, but don't feel obligated; life is busy :) )

  11. Thank you for entertaining us here, there and everywhere! Let's drink a New Year's toast to 2010!

  12. Hello to you! I am one of those new readers and was transferred by someone's link here somewhere somehow. Once I saw that awesome profile pic, I had to add you to the rss feed!

  13. I've enjoyed sharing this last year with you in the bloggy world. You've sure brightened my day many a time with all the HBM and the humor. The movie recs have not gone amiss either. I hope you're happy with your 2009 and that 2010 is even better. I'm guessing you're on the right track with the book coming out. I can't wait to read it.

  14. Thank you for these wonderful comments everyone! My heart is bursting with happiness. (And thank you for the AWESOME AWARD, Sarah!!)

    To my newest commenters:

    Grimmster — Ha ha! I LOVE the Muppets. I've never heard their Christmas CD, but I've watched their version of A Christmas Carol every year since it came out!

    Gourmez — Thank you for introducing yourself! Welcome!! :)
