Happy New Year guys! I hope you guys are having a wonderful time on this lovely day (okay, I don’t know if today will be a lovely day since I wrote and scheduled this post beforehand :P)!
So since it’s the New Year, I decided it’s the perfect time to make some blogging resolutions for the 2014 year after more than a year of blogging. It’s also the perfect time to change up some things on the blog.
- I will continue on doing book hauls four times a month (one book haul every week) and maybe even create my own name for them. We’ll see.
- I will do no more Waiting On Wednesday posts. They’re not as interesting as I found them before when I started the blog and I also don’t want to do too many memes because they will drag my blog down.
- Start writing the Series Overview posts again! Luckily, many awesome series ends in 2014.
- More Cover Guessing Games! I love making them and from what I gathered from the comments, you guys love doing them too! So basically, win-win for all of us. ;D
- I’ll make you guys work a bit for Monthly Wrap Up giveaways, but don’t worry, they’ll be fun and the prizes will be worth it, I promise.
- There will be more personal posts about my life, each titled Life Of A Blogger. Life Of A Blogger was created by Jessi from Novel Heartbeat so you guys can learn more about us bloggers’ lives! Hopefully you’ll enjoy reading about my life and other blogger’s lives as well!
- I’ll be visiting more blogs, new blogs, and commenting more often. Hopefully. (I can’t really keep this promise during the school year – it really depends on how much homework I get.)
So on to the Cover Guessing Game!
For those of you who don’t know what the Cover Guessing Game is, I’ll explain it all here: you see all the pictures below? One of those pictures is equal to one book cover. That means those twelve pictures correspond to twelve different books. In the Cover Guessing Game, you’ll have to guess what picture is a piece of what book cover. Up for the challenge? I hope you are!
This Cover Guessing Game will last all month so you can take your time to have fun and guess the answers for extra points for the Rafflecopter. Also, entries towards the Cover Guessing Game is not required, but you can earn extra points when you do them. You’ll have to get the book correct though or your entries will be disqualified.
And before I forget, I’ll have to name the prize of course. The winner of the Cover Guessing Game can win a SIGNED PERSONALIZED copy of Cress by Marissa Meyer since she’s stopping by in NYC February 2014.
The Rules + Hints:
- The books used in this Book Cover Guessing Game are my top 15 favorite books I’ve read in 2013. That means books that were released in 2011, 2012, etc. might be used in this puzzle. (This is why I never did the Top Ten Favorite Books I Read In 2013 that was given yesterday for Top Ten Tuesday. :P)
- At first, I wanted to give the prize to the first person who guessed all the above book covers correctly, but I figured that it would be unfair to people in different time zones. Therefore, I will allow Rafflecopter to pick the winner. However, the winner the Rafflecopter picks must have all the correct answers to win or all their entries will be eliminated and I will choose a new winner. Sorry about that, but hey, all the Cover Guessing Game entries are not required. Do the Cover Guessing Game at your own risk.
- Rafflecopter (sometimes) does not let you change your answer once you input your answer in. If you do want to change your answer for any book cover after submitting your old answer to the Rafflecopter, simply email me at whatisakelly(at)gmail(dot)com with the subject “January Cover Guessing Game Answer” with your new book cover answer and the name you used to enter the contest.
- If the Rafflecopter does not accept your answers, just email me your answers at whatisakelly(at)gmail(dot)com with the subject “January Cover Guessing Game.”
Good luck everyone & let the guessing game begin! ;D
