COYER Summer 2017 | Reading List Wrap Up!

COYER is a reading challenge hosted by Michelle @ Because Reading, Berls @ Fantasy is more fun, and Stormi @ Books, Movies, Reviews Oh My!
COYER stands for "Clean out your e-reads."  And typically the goal is to read from all the freebies or low priced books you've collected in the past on your e-readers.

But for this summer duration of June 17th to September 8th, our hosts are throwing out the normal rules!

An Overall Summary for Ani's COYER

I'm going to call it quits a few days early for COYER this year.  I think I've hit all I can hit for my Summer Reading List, and with Halloween Bingo starting up, I'm having trouble multi-tasking both of these challenges.  I'm really just too eager to dive into my Halloween Bingo reads, so much so that I'm not even glancing at my COYER reading list anymore to see what else I should try to read.

Anyway, I still feel like I've gotten quite a bit accomplished.  I read 23 books total for the overall challenge, including books I added after each five books I finished reading.  16 books were part of the original thirty, and if I only count the original thirty books that started the reading list, I've at least accomplished reading a little over 50% of my list.  Even as a total, I've finished reading a little over 50%.

It's not the goal I had in mind, but it's still a pretty good accomplishment, I feel, to have been able to knock 23 books off of my "already owned" bookshelves, both digital and physical.  On top of that, I've reached my Mount TBR Challenge goal of reading 36 books on my "already owned" bookshelves for this year.

A list of all the books I had wanted to read, with links to all my reviews can be found below.

Overall, I think COYER was a great success for me this year--what with my "Laid Back Reading Plans" and all, I think I kept up pretty well.

Until next year!  Because I normally only participate in the summer COYERs since they're the more laid back ones.

As of 8/23/2017 -- As the end of COYER Summer Vacation draws near, I've decided to stop adding books to my COYER list and try to focus on what I have left instead.  I haven't been getting through these books very quickly anyway, so we'll leave it at that.

(Note, as of 7/20/17, I have removed the spinny wheel.  It has not really been helping me any.)
