#COYER Challenge (Back to Basics)

This challenge couldn't have come at a better time if I do say so myself!!  My kindle is overflowing as of late and I love the idea of getting some of those unread books finally read.  I have participated in COYER a couple of different times now and it is always fun!  The entire point of the challenge is to work on cleaning out your e-reads which is something that I really need to do thanks to my book buying addiction and NetGalley.  So. Many. Books.  I NEED this challenge and am hoping to really make a dent on my kindle shelves with it.

One of the best parts of this challenge (or my favorite part anyways) is coming up with a list of books that I might want to read for the challenge.  A pool of possibilities if you will.  Obviously we all know by now that my reading moods tend to change on a whim but here are just some of the books that I would like to read for this challenge (I'm grouping them in pairs because it seems like fun):

Two cozy series that I cannot wait to continue.

Two thrillers that I desperately want to read.

Historical romances that are calling my name.

Authors that I have loved previously and need more of!

And finally, two books that I had planned to read in previous COYER challenges but are still unread.

I have many, many more books that I might read or would like to read but this gives me a good starting point.  I'm sure it will change a bit as well but my overall goal is to NOT add any other books to my kindle from NetGalley during this challenge.  Yep, I'm going on a NetGalley/Edelweiss ban during COYER this time around.  The only exceptions being those few books that are part of a series I am already reading that feel like must haves.  The key to success here for me will be trying not to browse these two sites at all.  If I can stay away, I know that I will be able to make a dent in my unread piles.

Tell me, are you participating in COYER this time around?  Do you have a list of possibilities like I do or is anything on your e-reader fair game?  Make sure to let me know in the comments if you are also participating so we can cheer each other on!

Happy Reading!


  1. Good luck with it and have fun reading. Those historicals look good. My Nook is overflowing, and I can't seem to stop requesting books from NetGalley.

  2. Love this challenge! I'm enjoying watching all my favorite bloggers pick out books to read on their ereaders. I buy ebooks very, very rarely (my ereader is mostly for library ebooks), but it's fun to see other people going back through their electronic TBR piles.

  3. I will be joining this one too. A ban? I don't know if I can do that, but goodness knows I should. It's not like I need any more books added via NetGalley or Edelweiss.

  4. ohmy, I need this challenge too but I promised myself not to join any book challenge this coming year. I'll just try to monitor my e-reader library :D I read Evil Games months a go and I liked it more than the first book!! I'm hoping to read Lost Girls soon..


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