Survey Results Part One: (Statistics)

So it's been a little over a week since I put the survey up, and I think now's a good time to do a post about the results. I'm thinking being open about them is a good idea, as I'm a pretty open person in some aspects this does not include confessing that I ate the last cookie. Hopefully this will be interesting and from it you guys will know what direction the blog is heading in :)

My thoughts on the polls in blue, and then I'll delve into the free respons after the statistics, otherwise this post would be monstrously long. I got about 50 responses, which is awesome!

What new features would you like to see?

Looks like people want to see author interviews the most. I wholeheartedly I agree, I really need to start interviewing authors, it's one of my New Year resolutions. And you guys also seem pretty interested with interviewing aspiring teen authors, which is something I can definitely do, yay! I will also try to incorporate some posts about book covers and wishlist posts as well as some advice/discussions about blogging.

Would types of books should I review?

Awesome, most of you like the books I review now. And a surprising amount like my Friday Favorites! I haven't done a Friday Favorite for a while now, so I'll definitely try to do those more regularly. I'll also try to keep up the other-genres-then-fantasy resolution and maybe sprinkle in some literature
or middle grade reviews occasionally :)

I love that you posted the results. I might have to steal your idea when I get some more followers. I think more Author interviews are right on the money
