Meandering Monday (3)

Some things got posted last week from me! I did a guest post for Story Siren Appreciation Week which I absolutely loved. Kristi is a wonderful blogging inspiration to a lot of people and she's a great friend, so she totally deserves this appreciation.

Alexa from Not Enough Bookshelves asked me to write a small post for her Christmas Couple Countdown where she counts down her favorite couples of the year and also asks other bloggers and authors who their favorite couples were too. So I wrote about Alex and Nathen from What They Always Tell Us by Martin Wilson. Go check both out and comment! :)

So this week and next, I'm only doing posts Monday through Thursday due to the holidays, though I may post my list of books read during 2010 on January 1. Then 2011 will be starting- woo!!

I'm really excited for 2011 and I hope over the holidays, along with spending time with family and all that, I can also update the blog in some areas and work on some of the features I've been doing.

In fact, I have a question for you all- should I continue doing Fresh New Voice of YA? I kept it going because it was a staple of my blog on Myspace (and I also enjoyed doing it) but it seems like no one seems to come by as much during those weeks each month (well, depending on the book featured). It doesn't mean I'd stop interviewing debut authors or reading their books, but I'd be doing it in a more traditional way rather than featuring them 3 times in one week. Instead, I could just review their book as normal and if I feel like doing an interview with them, contact them for one at a later date. That way, the promotion is more spread out.

I don't know, I'm just typing and words are coming out. I don't know what I'm saying, lol. But do answer the question please. I needz feedback! Maybe I should do a form people could fill out or something. I like getting feedback, whether positive or negative, so it'd be nice to do. I'll work on it.

Happy holidays, everyone!! :)


  1. I do enjoy Fresh New Voices, but do what feels right for you.

  2. Well when I like the sound of a book i love Fresh New Voices, when i don't I do skip further posts - helpful huh? But Liviania is right do what feels right to you.

  3. Happy holidays! :)
    I like Fresh New Voice of YA, but I think your new idea sounds better. It'll make the interviews that you do host feel a little more special, I think.
