December 31, 2014 • Cee • Monthly Recap

december

Farewell, December. Farewell, 2014. You will kind of be missed. The new year is upon us, and I am not ready. NOT AT ALL.

  • I launched the YA Book Cover Choice Awards because I wanted awards that are book cover-focused! And who is better to host it? Me. (Because I’m such a nerd for book covers!) I wished I thought of it earlier, because I know the awards will run into the New Year. (But 2015 will definitely be different! ;) ) The voting for the semi-finals is open. So vote for the covers you want to make it to the final round!
  • I’m so excited because so many new projects and resolutions. Eeeeek.
  • I have an official launch date for my special project—February 1st! I will talk more about it later, but it’s coming together!

PLANS FOR JANUARY 2015 

  • Prepping for the secret project.
  • Writing “Looking Ahead” posts and recaps of 2014 stuff (because I did a poor job of doing that in December. Whoops.)

  1. CEE Why have I not discovered your blog before? Because it is amazing! I just love all of those beautiful covers of the books you bought yourself because I haven’t heard of a lot of them but HELLO COVER ART! I’ve read Stormdancer and I have the same edition as well and it is so gorgeous. Happy New Year!

  2. Charlotte says:

    Omg. In the words of Lady Gaga, we did it kids. THE ULTIMATE SHOUT-OUT.

    I’M NOT EMOTIONAL. NOPE. I’M COMPLETELY OKAY *SOBS* YOU’RE THE WORST CEE <3

  3. I LOVE that you’re doing the YA Book Cover Choice Awards. So fitting!

    Stormdancer! Kinslayer! Saga! Eeep!

    You ended up downloading 6 Harper ARCs! Heee, do tell me how Between the Notes is (I might just give in and download it, though).

    Happy 2015, Cee! =)

  4. Freda Mans says:

    I definitely want to read about A.J. Fikry… I read a few of the short stories that were inside it though. :-)
    Happy 2015 reading!

  5. The Storied Life of AJ Fikry is definitely on my TBR list! I’m going to grab me a copy as soon as I see one at my local bookstore because I’ve heard nothing but awesome things about it! Awesome list!
