2014 End-of-the-Year Survey: Blogging and Looking Ahead

2014 End Of Year Book Survey
Hosted by Jamie at The Perpetual Page-Turner.

Here's part two of the survey. Dividing it up was a great idea this year.

1. New Favorite Book Blog
It's hard to keep track of the ones I found last year and those I started following in 2014, so while I have lots of favorites, one that I know for certain is a recent follow and favorite is...


2. Favorite Review I Wrote in 2014
Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

3. Best Discussion on My Blog

4. Most Thought-Provoking Discussion/Review on Another Blog
Discussion- I Got the Message Loud & Clear: Reading Isn't Cool on The Perpetual Page-Turner
Review- Like No Other by Una LaMarche on Queen Ella Bee Reads

5. Best Event I Participated In
The Mighty Mississippi Book Blast was great fun, and I loved participating in #RBWL again - not once but twice.

6. Best Moment of My Blogging Life in 2014
My very shallow answer is when Awkwordly Emma won the award from YA Highway for Best Established YA Reviews.

7. Most Popular Post This Year on Awkwordly Emma

8. Post I Wish Got a Little More Love
All in the Fifteen 2015 Reads series:

9. Best Bookish Discovery
This is probably stretching the topic, but I'm going to say the amount of books I've been able to store in my dorm room.

10. Completed Reading Goals/Challenges
Summer of Rereads (My own personal challenge) and Goodreads 2014 Challenge (I read 200 new or new-to-me books by the end of October).

5. One Thing I Hope to Accomplish in Blogging in 2015
I really want to make it to a book convention, whether it be BEA, ALA, YALLfest, or one here in Kentucky.

6. A 2015 Release I've Already Read and Am Recommending
The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord, without a doubt. Also This Side of Home by Renee Watson.

So that's it for the end-of-the-year survey! If you only check out my blog for this post, I guess I'll see you next year? 
Thanks to all readers, followers, fellow bloggers, authors, and publishers for making 2014 great!
