2011 in ReviewSaturday, December 31, 2011
Entered 2 challenges that I sadly did not complete, but had fun entering and talking about them anyway (and read some awesome books that I would have not otherwise!)
2011 Debut Author Challenge
2011 Off the Shelf Challenge
Held The Bucket List’s first giveaway (baby steps!!)
Celebrated Valentine’s Day with a strange twist and talked about love triangles
100 amazing people followed the site
Started Cover Discovered, a feature where I rant about the latest book covers I have found.
Interviewed best-selling author, Yann Martel, author of Life of Pi
Hosted the City of Bones book discussion
The Bucket List’s first guest post
Top 5 Fictional Proms
My Dream Library
Borders closes :(
I went to college and left the blogosphere, besides a few posts here and there but I plan to be back on the air for spring semester.
I started this site in August of 2010 and it was awesome to see it turn one year old this year. You have been with me throughout all of it and I appreciate you all. You all are fantastic and great and I want to give you a huge, THANK YOU, for keeping me motivated in continuing showing you all about the great books I discover. I hope you stick around for another year of fun because this year will be even better than last year.
What will 2012 bring: hopefully it will not bring the end of the world, because The Bucket List will only get better with age. I hope to be online more than I was this semester, so I will definitely have more posts for you to read.
There will be more great giveaways that you could enter.
I am looking into going to BEA this year, something I have never done before, so if you have been, I would love to hear your experiences of the convention.
Since last year’s book discussion was on City of Bones to celebrate the release of City of Fallen Angels, I want to do this year’s book discussion on Fallen to celebrate the release of Rapture. Do you think this would be a good idea? If interested in participating in any way, please contact me HERE.
