Can You Read a Series in a Month? Challenge Sign-up Post

Can You Read a Series in a Month? Challenge Sign-up Post

This month, I’m participating in the Can You Read a Series in a Month? Challenge hosted by Because Reading is Better than Real Life. Click the link for all the details if you’re interested in joining. It’s always a lot of fun! This time around I’m going BIG – attempting to read TWO series. Here are my picks: I chose this series at Berls’ suggestion. This series is 3 books. Max Monroe is going to be at Book Bonanza – bonus!   I’m buddy reading this series with Lenore. This series is 4 books but I’ve previously read the first book. I do plan to re-read it to refresh my memory though. Devney Perry is also going to be at […]

COYER 2022 Sign-up

COYER 2022 Sign-up

COYER 2022 Sign-up If you know our blog, you know that COYER is part of our traditions. We have been participating since the very first COYER, which has led us to have many more bookish friends. And we’ve had the pleasure of meeting some of them at least once in our life. Hopefully, 2022 will be gentle, and we’ll be able to meet up with our bookish friends again in real life. At least, hanging out with our COYER friends virtually – like in the Facebook group – helps us having discussions with like-minded people. The COYER rules are up already at Because Reading is Better than Real Life, and the two other blogs that are co-hosting the challenge with […]

Audiobook Challenge Midyear Check-in

Audiobook Challenge Midyear Check-in

Audiobook Challenge Mid-year Check-in I have listened to 9 audiobooks this year – which is surprisingly few IMO. I thought I had listened to a lot more than that to be honest. I have enjoyed all the books I’ve listened to, and I really want to listen to many, many more. However, I kind of need to do something else at the same time as I’m listening, or I feel a little too idle. I mostly listen when I drive to work, and sometimes on the bus or other public transport. Now that summer is here, I won’t really have to go anywhere for the next several weeks, so I need to find myself a new listening routine. Audiobook Challenge […]

#COYER Summer Sign-up

#COYER Summer Sign-up

COYER Summer sign-up COYER Summer is a little breathing pause in the all year COYER, as we’re allowed to read any book – any price, any format, and any distributor – even KU books can be included in this installment. COYER Summer is active from July 1st to October 27th, so get your reading on – we sure know we will! I especially, can’t wait to include some of my KU reads in the COYER linky, as I have been able to find some really good ones lately. I also think it’s possible to do COYER summer even if you haven’t chosen to do the whole year challenge, so don’t worry if you feel like you want to sign up […]

From the Read Harder Challenge: Read a book you’ve been intimidated to read.  Read a non-European novel in translation.  Read a memoir by a Latinx author.  Read […]

#COYER 2021 – Our Sign-up Post

#COYER 2021 – Our Sign-up Post

COYER 2021 is a supercharged COYER where reading books is important, but so is being a part of the wonderful COYER community. COYER 2021 – Our Sign-up It’s that time of the year again – when challenges abound, and we have to make some decisions about which ones we are going to participate in next year. COYER is definitely a no-brainer for us, as we’ve participated in every COYER challenge since the beginning. And we have found some truly wonderful blogger and bookish friends thanks to it. Of course, while originally the challenge is supposed to clean out your e-reader, we have added at least as many books as the ones we’ve read during prior challenges. This time around, the […]
