Today, the Bookanistas are celebrating. One of our own, Veronica Roth, debuted last month with her YA novel, Divergent. Oh, and guess what? It hit the New York Times Bestseller List. Here’s a little video we put together, humiliating ourselves to show our love for her. Congrats, Vee!

Last July, Vee did a guest post for my blogiversary. She wrote about the greatest lessons she’d learned in the last year, and it is so loaded with wisdom that you should read it instantly.

Some of the other Bookanistas actually posted recommendations today, too. Be sure to check these out!
