COYER Summer Vacation 2014


It’s Clean Out Your E-Reader (COYER) time again! I participated in the first COYER, held in November 2013, but skipped the last round earlier this year. COYER is hosted by Fantasy is More Fun and Because Reading. The goal of COYER is to read free and cheap (under $5) ebooks, but the rules have been relaxed for summer vacation. You don’t even have to read ebooks — paperbacks, hardcovers, audiobooks: all fair game. Plus there are readathons, giveaways, and more fun! For all the details, check out the sign-up post.

I don’t really want to map out exactly what books I’m going to read, or even set a numbers goal, but I do have some ARCs that I’ll definitely be reading. I try to read and reviews ARCs by their release date (or week, at least), so I’ll be reading them roughly in this order:

  1. Will the Real Prince Charming Please Stand Up? by Ella Martin (release date: July 1; hoping to post my review on June 23)
  2. The Dare by Hannah Jayne (release date: July 1)
  3. How We Deal With Gravity by Ginger Scott (release date: July 8)
  4. The Family Romanov by Candace Fleming (release date: July 8; blog tour date: July 29)
  5. Some Boys by Patty Blount (release date: August 5)
  6. Amity by Micol Ostow (release date: August 26)
  7. My Year of Epic Rock by Andrea Pyros (release date: September 2)
  8. Playing with Matches by Suri Rosen (release date & blog tour date: September 9)

I also have some older ARCs that have already been published. Some I received after their release date. Others I have been slacking on. It’s harder to keep ebooks organized that physical books. That may be the one disadvantage to ebooks.

  1. Dead Beautiful by Yvonne Woon (September 2010)
  2. The Gods of Asphalt by H.E. Ellis (August 2011)
  3. Ava and Pip by Carol Weston (March 2014)
  4. Witchfall by Victoria Lamb (March 2014)
  5. Silver by Chris Wooding (March 2014)
  6. The Exquisite Immaculate Grace of Carmen Espinoza by Rebecca Taylor (May 2014)

I’m sure I’ll also be reading some new releases and hopefully some recent releases that I haven’t gotten to yet. I buy way too many books each week and I need to start reading some of them.


  1. I will have to take a look at this as it looks like something I am gonna need to take part in ;D

    Good luck with your goals and I hope the read-a-thon goes well! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  2. You have a good plan for COYER. I need to get better organized. I have Witchfall too so hopefully we will both like this. Good luck on the challenge and I hope you enjoy your books!

  3. I have a bunch of older review copies that I’m hoping to work my way through as well. I am also hoping to knock some off of my own shelves and clear some space. LOL! Good luck with this challenge!
