I honestly cannot believe it’s been four years since I started really working at this blog in its current form, but at the same time, I can’t believe it’s only been four years. I feel like I’ve spent years of my life working on this blog and building it into what it is today, and there is still so much space for both it and me to grow in the future.
In celebration of the last four years, I thought I would share the most popular posts of all time here! The results might surprise you because they certainly did for me!
Character Interview:: Jade from Piecing Me Together
Not gonna lie, 90 percent of the traffic this gets is from kids trying to do book reports, which never ceases to amuse me. I loved this book and I’m so glad that so many people are using it to teach with. This one didn’t surprise me so much.
Review:: A Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers [SPOILERS GALORE]
Again, this being one of the most popular posts on CandidCeillie did not at all surprise me. Negative reviews tend to get more views than anything else, and this one in particular is the most negative review I have literally ever written. This book is the only one that I have ever so desperately wanted to like and been so horribly disappointed in.
Guest Post:: Ace Coding for the Allo Eyes
I love this guest post, but it surprised me that it was so high up in the rankings. I’d like to do more guest posts in the future since y’all seem to like them so much!
Review:: Selection Day by Aravind Adiga
Review:: This is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp
Writing Resources: Free Author Marketing
This post was relatively new so it surprised me that it got so much attention, but I’m also not that surprised because these resource posts are so useful to new and old authors alike.
Review:: The New Old Me by Meredith Moran
Rec List: Autism Pride Month Book Bingo
I’m really glad this post got as many clicks as it did. It took a lot of time to pull together and it’s so important to me as an autistic woman. It means a lot that y’all liked it as much as I did.
Review:: Binti by Nnedi Okorafor
Review:: The City of Brass by S. A. Chakraborty
