2013 in Review, Thanks, and Contests

Happy 2014! In an effort to start the year right (since 2013 has now officially ended), I'm going to do a wrap-up of the year!

I officially graduated with my Master's degree (woo-hoo), so that meant this was a quieter year in terms of reviews.

I reviewed 37 different books, many of them fabulous. The ratings breakdown as follows:

8 Five Heart/A
18 Four Heart/B
11 Three Heart/C

I hit 200,000 views according to blogger (since my Google Analytics code stopped gathering data before my blogging hiatus). Woop!

I was lucky enough to work with some great authors and publishers this year. Thanks to Bridget from Bloomsbury, Abbie from Sourcebooks, Michelle from EgmontUSA, and the MacTeenBooks blog! Thanks to all the authors who took the time to be interviewed/guest post for me: Lisa and Laura Roecker, L.T. Getty, Lois Metzger, Janeal Falor, Jenny E. Miller, Stephanie Wardrop, Tracy Deebs, and Kim Askew and Amy Helmes! Woo, what a great year :)

2014 - I'll be reviewing some great books in January, including Cress by Marissa Meyer (look for a contest giving away all three books in the series so far), Going Rogue by Robin Benway (and another awesome contest).

Monthly Comment Contest - This is a new change for me, but I think it's a great way to give back to my readers. Each month, every time you comment on a review or non-meme post you will be entered into a contest for one of the books that I've reviewed. So, if you comment on four different reviews, that's four entries to win one of the books featured on my blog that month/year. This is going to be open internationally, too. As long as The Book Depository ships to you, you can win!

Here's to a fabulous and book-filled 2014 :)

Congratulations on getting your master's degree! What an accomplishment! Also, it sounds like you were able to read a lot of great books in 2013.

Looks like you are already started with your reading in 2014- looking forward to your reviews. :) Love your comment/giveaway idea. Awesome!

Wishing you a happy new year. :)

The comment contest sounds great!! Will we have to comment only on that month's post? Like should I only comment on the posts on January for the JAN comment contest?
