2014 Statistics Survey

Posted January 5, 2015 by Stormy in Books / 5 Comments

I have so much fun filling out the End-of-the-Year Book Survey every year, and I pretty much love surveys in general. So when I saw on Brittany’s blog that The Book Addict’s Guide and Andi’s ABCs had decided to put together a statistic survey, I knew I had to fill it out!

  1. Thanks so much for doing the survey!!!
    YES, Isn’t it crazy how Heir of Fire is rated so high!? Or I guess not because it is that amazing 🙂
    Yayyy Open Road Summer. Just gives me the happy feels 😀

      Someone told me there’s a minor character(actually, I’m not even sure if she’s minor–just mentioned) in To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, and that made me squeal. It’s not really my kind of book, but I almost want to read it just for that.

      I’ve also lost count of the number of times I’ve said my name and people have told me that they have horses named Stormy(that’s what I get for living in Texas, I suppose).
