2009 - A Year in Review

While I was going through my Google Reader (which is a life saver), I came across a lot of posts looking back on 2009. So I decided to do my own post about 2009.

Let me just start by saying that 2009 was awesome! I really began connecting with the blogging and YA author community more this year and my blog changed so much.

Favorite Reviews:

The Good - I'm going to have to go with Brightly Woven. I had a lot of fun writing the review. My reviews for Beautiful Creatures and The Dark Divine were also a lot of fun to write.

The Bad - For a bad review, I sure had fun writing it. My review of The Forest of Hands and Teeth is a prime example of my ranting abilities. Like I said in the review, I really don't know what went wrong. Everyone seems to love the book and I still want to, I just can't seem to get into it.

Favorite Interviews:

Favorite Covers:

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Sea by Heidi R Kling

Authors I met:

Jen Calonita (Secrets of my Hollywood Life)
Jen was super sweet and funny. I'm so glad I was able to meet her - I love her books.

Sarah Dessen
Yeah, I was totally freaking out when they took this picture. So awesome!

Ally Carter (Gallagher Girls)
This was my second time meeting Ally Carter. She was so sweet and I learned many great tips from her about writing.

General Awesomeness:
  • I hit (and broke) 200 followers! I never would've thought there'd be that many people interested in reading my blog. You guys are seriously awesome.
  • I was quoted in the paperback version of Beautiful Americans by Lucy Silag.
  • This isn't really blog related, but I finished writing the first draft of my novel today. :-)
New Year's Resolutions:
  • Read more
  • Review more
  • Write more
  • Twitter less
Happy New Year!
