#COYER Wrap-up Post

COYER March Challenge - (un)Conventional BookviewsThe COYER challenge is over for this time, and I am happy to say I reached my challenge goal of 15 books read during the month of March, since I actually read 16. I am just linking to my reviews below, and I will also let you know whether or not I enjoyed each book, of course. Our lovely COYER hosts have been Berls of Fantasy is More Fun and Michelle of Because Reading is Better Than Real Life, and I want to thank both of them for all the fun I’ve had once more with the COYER challenge.

During one of the COYER twitter parties, there was mention of another COYER challenge taking place next July, so keep your eyes open if you want to and are able to join at that time.

Wake to Darkness (Brown and De Luca #2) – Maggie Shayne. This is a romantic thriller, and I loved the second installment in the series. Looking through my archives, I also realized that I read the first book during the first COYER challenge in November 2013.

Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover, I received an ARC for this book, and while I enjoyed it enough to give it four stars, I actually gave the audio-book five stars! The two narrators were awesome.

Improper Arrangements – Juliana Ross, this historical romance novel was good, and I enjoyed the fact that a lot of the action took place in the French and Swiss Alps.

Come Home to Me (Whiskey Creek #6) – Brenda Novak. I love this series so much, each time I pick up a book it feels like I get to spend some time with some really good friends I haven’t had the time to see for a while.

Sweet Revenge (Sin Brothers #2) – Rebecca Zanetti, I was hooked from the beginning, even if I was able to figure out something quite early in the story, both the romance and the mystery were very well done, and the characters made me want to know even more about them.

Reprisal (The Time Weaver Chronicles #3) – Thomas A. Knight is the final installment in this amazing high fantasy series, and if you enjoy parallel universes, magic, dragons and excellent world building, you should pick up this series.

All Fired Up (Hot in the Kitchen #2) – Kate Meader. Fun contemporary romance with hot chefs and spunky women.

The Forever Song (Blood of Eden #3) – Julie Kagawa. *sigh* I’m so sad this series is over, even if I loved all of the books, and am utterly satisfied with how it ended. I do think a Jackal spin-off could be a good thing, though.

Once in a Lifetime (Lucky Harbor #9) – Jill Shalvis. This is another series I love, beautiful friendships and great romance, lots of fun and hotness in each installment.

Waking up Pregnant – Mira Lyn Kelly, is a funny contemporary romance. A quick and hot read.

A SEAL’s Salvation (Uniformely Hot SEALs #3) – Tawny Weber. Yeah, this is another kind of romance I love to read, men in uniform are pretty hot, and if they need any kind of help from a woman they are interested in, there is always some kind of extra tension I can’t get enough of.

The Wicked We Have Done (Chaos Theory #1) – Sarah Harian. I loved this story, I got to actually root for the bad guys, who may or may not be completely bad, and there are so many ethical discussions to be had based on the way criminals were treated.

Mad About You – Joan Kilby. This is a friends-to-lovers romance, and usually, I adore that, but I had difficulties connecting with the characters in this one.

The Room on the Second Floor – T.A. Williams, fun and whimsical story, but with too many plotlines to make it perfect.

One Man Guy – Michael Barakiva, beautifully written LGBT YA story, with an Armenian family, New York City, friendship and tentative romance. Fave 2014 read so far!

Broken Hearts, Fences, And Other Things to Mend – Katie Finn. This was not my kind of story at all, but I have seen some great and enthusiastic reviews for it on other blogs.

Did you participate in the latest COYER challenge? If you did, please leave me a link to your wrap-up post so I won’t miss it! I have to say I’m really looking forward to the next one, I keep adding e-books to my kindle, and I somehow add far more than I can read each week.

Thanks for stopping by 🙂 Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    • Thanks Berls, I’m really happy with my progress with ARCs especially for this challenge. And I actually really enjoyed more books than those I liked less.

      I’m already looking forward to the next COYER challenge 😀

    • I’m just happy for you that your reading-slump is over, Stormi! And maybe you’ll have more fun with COYER in July?

  1. I’m so proud of you for accomplishing your goal, Lexxie! *claps hands and cheers* I’m sure you’re proud of yourself. I’d only challenged myself to read 8 books and I only managed 3. But it’s 3 fewer books on my ereader. 🙂 Of course, I KNOW you added more than 3 to my tbr in the last month. 😉

    I hope you had a lovely weekend, my dear! *big hugs*
