    ( love you & your books heather! the books have inspired me and opened my mind to all sorts of possibility’s thank you!) xoxox

  59. Kylie Wakulat says:

    Can I just point out to everyone in these comments that this whole thing started on April 24, 2007 and ended on May 3, 2016… That’s nine years with these characters. I grew up with these characters me being seven years old when the first book came out, and ten when I actually started reading the books themselves. I remember wanting to be just as talented as Jessica, which is why I chose theatre as an elective, and I’m now going to college to earn a BFA in Theatre. It’s just so surreal how a book can impact your life so much, and I can’t be the only one who feels this way. Sorry if this is really long, but I was just amazed by how long we’ve all spent with these books.
    *I personally want to hear all of your stories of how MCBC has impacted your lives. Reply to my comment with your story and I will reply back.*
    Thanks for reading if you got to the end.

    • heathervogelfrederick says:

      I LOVE KNOWING THIS! So cool. I’d like to hear your stories, too!

      • Kat says:

        It’s kinda funny how I first found the MDBC series. But first off I am a very picky reader, so picky that I often return books I thought I would fall in love with. A while ago I was in a bookstore, where there was some sort of promotion on and on a table I found Wish You Were Eyre. This was the last book in the series, but I picked it up unknowingly and bought it. I loved it so much, I read through rereading the part where Darcy and Jess kiss in the library, the frolicking in the garden with Tristian and Cassidy and the perfect ending. It was a happy moment to finish the book but as I read the last pages written by Heather I realized I had read the last book first.

        To be honest I haven’t read every book in the series yet, they aren’t always available at book stores but each time I visit one I check for it, because I know that it is a series I hold close to my heart. I have to agree about Jess, she’s always been one of my favourites, however there are the little parts of each character that I love, the little things that we all generally look for in the people we love, grace, humor, kindness, creativity.

        Heather, through these books there is now a kind of book club here wishing these pages of comments where we each talk, we don’t all live in the same place like your dictionary daughters but we all hold that same live for reading and discussions and maybe Darcy too!!! Haha.


        P.S Darcy is boyfriend goals… Is there some boy you know that he was designed after of so let me know haha.

        • heathervogelfrederick says:

          I love this! Love knowing how you found the books, and love the idea of a “book club” here on the blog! Yeah!

    • Emily says:

      I joined a mother-daughter book club a couple years ago, and the MDBC was the first book we read. I finished it in one night, and started all over again. Then for one of my birthdays, my Dad’s cousin bought me the whole rest of the series (not including the MDBCamp, since it wasn’t published at the time. I remember I was so excited, and read the backs of the books to everyone. A while back I was one of the winners of Little Women Christmas giveaway, and I showed it to my book club. The mothers were were impressed and all that, but my friends aren’t so big on reading in the first place, so they were neutral, but whatevs. I just really love the series, it just makes me feel good and everything. I actually got the MDBCamp the first day it came in stores, but I am going to save it for when I read the series again, which would be around the 17th time, just about. I always defintly read the series when summer vacation is ending, because it feels more nice. Thanks for asking this question Kylie!

      • Kylie Wakulat says:

        Your so welcome!!! Thanks for answering!!! My friends aren’t very big readers either so I relate to you when it comes to that. Have a great day!!! (I’m using WAY too many exclamation points)

  60. grace22 says:

  62. Emily says:

    Trivia Question-how do each one of the books start off? For example, the second one, Much Ado About Anne, starts off with Emma visiting with Jess at Jess’ house after the last day of school.
    P.S. I literally have read the MDBC series around 15 times. Really, i just love it so much!! While I already do have the whole series, it will be okay if I don’t win, but it would be nice to have another. Congrats on who wins!! I will share on twitter!

I’m constantly thinking about what each character would do, and how I want to grow up and be a bit like each of them. Your writing is so descriptive and real, it gives me a sense of belonging, if you know what I mean. Megan, Becca, Cassidy, Emma, and Jess would all make the perfect best friends!
