COYER Summer Vacation Reading Challenge

Hosted by Fantasy is More Fun and Because Reading is Better Than Real Life, this is a reading challenge that I can't help but participate in because who doesn't love summer reading?  I sure do!  This one sounds super fun as they are hosting multiple read-a-thons among other fun challenges.  I'm looking forward to meeting some new to me bloggers from this as well.

 Here are the official rules:

 "1. You must create a sign-up post anytime between now and August 15th -on blog, goodreads, fb, google+, etc. Yes, that means you can sign up
until August 15th! But don’t wait, you’ll miss most of the fun!

2. You must link the sign-up post below (don’t link to your blog, link to the sign-up post).

3. You must post your review books somewhere & link the reviews to the review linky to be eligible for one of the grand prize giveaways.

4. Have Fun!

Normally you’re only allowed to read eBooks that were less than $5 for COYER, but since this is Summer Vacation you can read whatever you want!"

I decided to make a list of possibilities as my goals post (basically because I love making lists).  I probably won't stick to it too closely but it will be fun to try.  Here are just some of the books that I am hoping to read this summer:

Books I bought for my ipad (and still haven't read): 

Review copies from NetGalley or Edelweiss:

Library Books:

Review Copies (that I need to get off of my shelves):

Books off of my own shelves:

Other random books that I want to read:

I will be amazed if I get through half of these but you never know with all of the read-a-thons that they have planned.  It will be fun to try, and it will FINALLY get some of these books read/off of my shelves.  Good stuff! 


  1. I love that you post covers too. :-) Don of the Dead is one I've wanted to read for ages. I think I have a paperback copy somewhere. I've been hearing good things about Elizabeth is Missing. Midnight Crossroad is another one I really want to read. And a Dark and Twisted Tide.

    Good luck and enjoy!

  2. Looks like a good stack! You have a great mix of genres. Hope you enjoy!

  3. I love your eclectic mix of books and genres - and book sources. Perfect for COYER. And I see we share some similar tastes (Deborah Crombie, Nora Roberts' O'Dwyer trilogy, and Mary Stewart are all high on my list of likes.) Good luck with COYER Summer Vacation!

  4. Wendy- I cannot wait to start A Dark and Twisted Tide! Actually all of these are books that I have been wanting to read for some time....let's hope that I get to the majority of them. (Posting the covers makes me want to read them even!)

    Sarah- Thanks! I like to mix up genres so I don't go through a reading slump. Plus, I'm a moody reader so hopefully this will match all of my reading moods.

    Lark- You have great taste in books :) I just finished the Mary Stewart and it was GREAT! I am super excited to read more of her books. I actually started my first Phyllis Whitney book thanks to finishing Nine Coaches and craving more gothic fiction. I'm impatiently waiting for the 2nd book of Nora Roberts trilogy to come in from the library. Good luck with your COYER challenge as well!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one of them :)
