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).

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 […]
