COYER Mini-Challenge Romantic Suspense – The end

COYER Mini-Challenge Romantic Suspense – The end

COYER Mini-Challenge… the End So, nobody on my Rafflecopter guessed what we were leading up to – which is that Brandee and I are getting married! Uh.. I mean, we’re merging our blogs – thus making our relationship official! And we’re both so excited about that. Not only have we found that we have a little less time blogging, but co-blogging will also give us an excuse (as if we even need that) to chat even more often. For the rest of the month of August, starting on the 15th, we are doing several giveaways – both US ones and international ones, so make sure you mark not only your calendar, but also your bookmarked pages and come visit us […]

#COYER Mini-Challenge: Romantic Suspense

#COYER Mini-Challenge: Romantic Suspense

COYER Mini-Challenge: Romantic Suspense Hello all 🙂 Welcome to our COYER Mini-Challenge for Romantic Suspense! Brandee @ Bookworm Brandee and I are so happy to have you 🙂 This mini-challenge is pretty straight forward – read three romantic suspense books this next week, one book that you’ve bought, one you’ve borrowed – either from the library or a friend, and one you’ve received for free – either a gift, or an ARC. We both love romantic suspense, because there is a little bit of angst to go with the romance, and sometimes, the suspense parts are so good we just can’t wait to flip to the next page. Plus, having romance in those books just makes everything a bit more […]

2018 NetGalley and Edelweiss Reading Challenge

2018 NetGalley and Edelweiss Reading Challenge

2018 NetGalley and Edelweiss Reading Challenge This is pretty self-explanatory as challenges go – reading those beautiful eARCs received from either Edelweiss or NetGalley can become quite a difficult task at times. More than once, I’ve gone to either sites to post a review, only to end up with a few new books on my shelves. How come those new shiny books are so utterly irresistible? The 2018 NetGalley and Edelweiss Reading Challenge is hosted by Katrina @ Bookish Things. 2018 NetGalley and Edelweiss Challenge Guidelines The challenge will run from Jan 1, 2018 – Dec 31, 2018. Anyone is welcome to join. You do not need to be a blogger, just post your reviews and come back every month […]

2018 Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge

2018 Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge

2018 Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge Since I read a lot of contemporary romance, I figured a challenge for that category might do me a lot of good. I was definitely happy when I found the 2018 Contemporary Reading Challenge @ Andi’s ABC thanks to the Master List of Challenges @ Girl xoxo. And of course, this challenge can also be used in parallel to my very own 2018 New Release Challenge. 2018 Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge Details: Runs January 1, 2018 – December 31, 2018 (books read prior to 1/1/2018 do not count towards the challenge). You can join anytime you want, though the sign up linky will close Nov. 15, 2018.  The goal is to read as many Contemporary […]

COYER Winter Switch – Sign-up

COYER Winter Switch – Sign-up

COYER Winter Switch What time is it? It’s COYER time, ladies and gentlemen. What is this challenge about, you wonder? Well, it’s the Clean Out Your E-Reader challenge. And every winter, the lovely Berls, Michelle and Stormi come up with a little extra something to make it a bit harder for the participants to make it. They don’t want to make it so difficult it will be impossible, though, so there are two choices for this COYER, either the Winter Switch, or the normal, strict COYER. I’m doing the latter, as I somehow don’t read books if I put them on a specific list. COYER – the Basics The challenge begins December 16th at 12am EST and ends March 9th […]

2018 New Release Challenge Sign-up

2018 New Release Challenge The 2018 New Release Challenge is a year-long challenge in which we aim to read books released in 2018.  From this year on, I’ll be the sole host of the challenge, and I hope that won’t keep any of you away!  There is one post on the top of my homepage for all review links for the year, where the link is open for books you read and review each quarter. In 2017, I read 118 books that counted for the New Release Challenge, and I don’t see why this should be any different this year. This is why I want to continue with the New Release Challenge. I always tend to do better when someone […]
