Over 250 people voted, and you guys, I’m very emotional about it because it has really grown from last year. (Triple the amount of people last year!) I owe each and every one of you a huge thank you and hugs with lots of confetti, dancing, and delicious sweets! <3
A month ago, the 2015 YA Book Cover Choice Awards kicked off with lots of cheers and support. I was hoping people will get pumped up because book covers maketh a book (sometimes), and you guys did not fail to express your excitement. You really showed the love and appreciation for book covers in this Cover Awards, and I am so grateful for the enthusiasm. I cannot stress enough how much it means to me to see all the votes, the sharing, and the excitement. It keeps me excited to do more of this! (Not that I was gonna stop. ;D) There’s so much we can do.

This year’s YA Book Cover Choice Awards may have ended for now, but I want to hear your feedback and suggestions of how I can do it better next year! Please fill this survey out. I would be so thankful! (And good cheers will arrive on your door if you do. ;))) )
The only questions that are required are the yes or no ones (with the asterisk at the end). For the first Y/N question, I’m genuinely curious to know if people actually click on the links in the Google form poll. If people don’t, I’m gonna stop including them.
Thank you so much! <3
