Yes, as we
‘ve been shouting about mentioned earlier, today marks ONE YEAR since Riveted’s official launch! It seems like just yesterday we posted our Welcome to Riveted post and now here we are, over 450 posts later!
While we were letting that 450+ posts number sink in, it got us thinking more about everything we’ve done on Riveted over the last year. We were curious—and we thought you wonderful folks comprising the Riveted community might be curious, too—to find out what some of the highlights over the last year were. What did YOU like on Riveted?
Most Read Books:
There’s ALWAYS something for you to read on Riveted and here were the three books you devoured the most over the last year! Some of the others in the top ten included Suzanne Young’s Hotel for the Lost, Morgan Matson’s Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, Shaun David Hutchinson’s We Are the Ants, and Cassandra Clare’s City of Bones.
Most Searched for Authors:
Cassandra Clare, Ellen Hopkins, and Scott Westerfeld: that these three are the authors you’ve searched for on Riveted the most comes as no surprise!
Most Viewed Book Pages:
When Riveted launched a year ago, one of the things we decided we were going to do differently from it’s predecessor Pulseit was that we were going to be “publisher agnostic,” talking about YA books from ALL publishers, not just from Simon & Schuster, so it’s so interesting that the most viewed book page on Riveted is A Court of Thorns and Roses, a NON-Simon & Schuster book! We expect you guys were hoping to read it and we wish we could oblige because it’s AWESOME.
Most Popular Post:
We’ve published over 450 posts on Riveted, many of them moving and poignant guest posts from authors, but what was your favorite…? The “Which Patronus Did You Get?” post by a LONG shot! I guess it shouldn’t be a surprise, Harry Potter fandom is ginormous and our resident Potterhead Keri is always great about keeping us up to date.
Our Most Popular Facebook Post:
Bumble didn’t accomplish too much during his short stint as the Riveted intern but I guess he managed to leave a legacy since this was the post you liked and shared the most!
Our Most Popular Tweet:
You guys do love Cassie Clare’s world of the Shadowhunters and so do we! You can count on an extended excerpt of Lord of Shadows coming your way on Riveted as soon as we can get it for you!
In case we haven’t expressed it enough, thank YOU Riveted readers for making our first year so amazing! Look out for us later this year at shows like YALLFest, YALLWest and BookCon, get in touch with us if you want to write for Riveted and be part of the fun, and keep visiting, commenting, and reading! We’re so psyched for another awesome year of bringing you great YA reads and content!
