The Year In Review (2013) with Giveaway

2014-Year-In-Review

2013 flew by, didn’t it?  With so many amazing books to read,
how could it not!  We continue to make new blogger friends,
and were pretty excited to have been able to participate in a 
book event here in Winnipeg where we lead various speaking
engagements, and got to rub shoulders with the amazing Kelley Armstrong!

Not only was it an amazing year for books, but it was also a pretty amazing
year for Chapter by Chapter.

We did keep with our resolution last year, and cut back on
tours and blitzs and such, BUT we also started a new adventure
in our blogging side of the world.

We have teamed up with the very awesome Month9Books and have
become their official tour coordinator for their Young Adult titles, so
if you haven’t had a chance to sign up as a host, you can do so HERE!

With the start of this new venture, we have been approached by other
Publishers to coordinate other titles for tours, so be on the look out for those!

Be sure to enter the giveaway found at the end of the post!

We didn’t quite make our Goodreads Reading Challenge, but
we sure did read some pretty amahhhhzing books!

GR-2013

We read 67959 pages in total in 2013…

Rated-States

We posted a total of 616 posts!  Wowzah… With January 2013 being the busiest month in posts with a whopping 74 posts.

total-posts

For 2014, we’re going to continue to pick and choose the books for blog tours and blitzes that we are really interested in reading, and continue full steam ahead with the coordination of various blog tours and blitzes with Month9Books, other authors, and Publishers!

We were extremely lucky to have been able to read for review various ARCS, physical copies, and ebooks this year, and wanted to share some of our top favs that we have read for 2013 (In no particular order).  Some may have been published way before 2013, but they were physically read by us in 2013.

Gabby’s Top Favs for 2013:

With that being said, we have a giveaway just for you!
We look forward to the new year and hope that the 2014 is a great year for you in life, love, and books!

    From Gabby’s favs I would have to choose Earthbound by Aprilynne Pike because the cover is just so beautiful! From MaryAnn’s I would choose These Broken Stars because I bought the ebook and read it all in one sitting because it was that amazing, so a hardcover or paperback version would be AMAZING!!!

    Thank you Chapter by Chapter for the giveaway and especially for making it international as well.
