January 2014: Recap & Wrap-Up!

I took 2014 by storm and tried to do as much reading as I could right off the bat! I don’t think I did too terribly… Lots of things already happening in January so let’s go go go with the recap!

  • I’m working on a survey right now that I dubbed the Seriously Social Survey! I’ll be using the data for a future post on blogging + social media so I’m asking bloggers to take the survey to help with the data collection 😀
  • Reviews coming up for Days of Blood and Starlight, Night of Cake and Puppets, Cruel Beauty, Ask Again Later and more!
  • Catch me on the blog tours for NIL by Lynne Matson and UNFORGOTTEN by Jessica Brody!

That wraps up January! I can’t believe how quickly this year is flying by. A month of 2014 is already over! I’ve already been making great progress with my reading goals of taking it easy and just catching up on my ARCs and currently-owned books. Looking forward to more in February!

    I love these wrap-up posts! I’ve thought about doing them before, because it’s cool to see the stats that way, but I’m still not sure if I want to do them. I think I’ll actually feel kind of sub-par if I make them myself, because I’m such a slow reader and don’t review and post as much as other bloggers. I know, I can’t compare myself to others, but still… But maybe these kinds of posts will give me motivation to work harder!

    And great job on reading 12 books in January! I read 6, which is okay for me but I’d love to be able to read more each month!

    Seriously, I feel like I blinked and January was over! I really should be grateful though, since it means spring will be coming soon (I hope!). You’ve had an AWESOME set of posts (especially the discussion ones) this month, so props to you. Here’s to more awesomeness headed our way this year!

    I’m excited to see the results of the seriously social survey! I’m quite curious about some of the responses. . .
    I’m also really excited to see your review of Ask Again Later! I know we both really liked it, so I’m looking forward to it!

    You had quite the January! If this whole year is half as productive, I think you can call it a success! Haha

    I took your social survey – I’m excited to see what you do with it!
