COYER Summer Vacation will run all summer, June 18th – September 2nd!

On September 4th we will announce the winners of THREE $10 Gift cards for Amazon or Barnes & Noble. There will be several opportunities for other prizes throughout the event with our social media games. Hosted by Berls @ Fantasy is More Fun, Michelle @ Because Reading & Stormi @ Books, Movies, Reviews. Oh My!

-The Rules-

  1. You must create a sign-up post anytime between now and August 1st -on blog, goodreads, fb, google+, etc.Yes, that means you can sign up until August 1st! But don’t wait, you’ll miss most the fun!
  2. You must link that sign-up post below (don’t link to your blog, link to the sign-up post).
  3. You must review books somewhere & link the reviews to the review linky to be eligible for one of the grand prize giveaways.
  4. Have Fun!

Normally you’re only allowed to read eBooks that were less than $5 for COYER, but since this is Summer Vacation you can read whatever you want! To be clear, here are some questions you may be asking…

  • Can I read a book that cost $10? Yes!
  • Are Tour books and Author Review books ok? Yes! Yes!
  • Can I read a paperback? An audio book? An eBook? Yes! Yes! Yes!

So with the Clean Sweep ARC challenge in May under my belt I’m more than excited to participate in this challenge, to get to know more bloggers, and to challenge myself to focus my reading.

Since I’ve never participated in the COYER Summer Vacation challenge before I think I’m going to follow a little bit of what Michelle over at Because Reading is Better Than Real Life put together for her 2014 starting post for this challenge. But, instead of just focusing on breaking this challenge down by just weeks I’m going to get more specific and break this challenge down by the the genres and books I really need to focus on and knock off my TBR.
