#COYER: New Year’s Read-A-Thon 1/1/15 – 1/4/15

This is the first read-a-thon in the COYER (Clean Out Your EReader) Winter Challenge. You can sign up to join at Fantasy Is More Fun.

My (tentative) list of what I hope to read is as follows:


  • The Enemy by Charlie Higson (The Enemy #1). My husband read this and thought I would like it. I have not read anything by Mr. Higson, and I am really looking forward to it.
  • Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover (Hopeless #2.5). This was free somewhere, and having seen Ms. Hoover’s name around Goodreads, I thought I’d get it. I didn’t notice until later that it was part of a series. According to Goodreads, it is a standalone. Maybe it will make me want to read the rest of the books.
  • Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Lux #1). I have read one book by this author, and I must say that I didn’t like it too much. But, having seen this series around the interwebs for over two years, I really want to give Ms. Armentrout a second chance.
  • OK, I’ll fully admit that the only reason I got this book called Arousing Love: A Teen Novel by M. H. Strom is (1) because of the horrible title that sounds slightly porn-y and ridiculous; and (2) that it is somehow a religious-themed book. Normally, I do not read Christian-based books, and, tbh, I totally expect it to be written very poorly. Let’s see if I am in any way pleasantly surprised, like when we eat at Luby’s. Because when your expectations are very low, just about anything can be an improvement, right?
  • A Corner of White by Jaclyn Moriarty (The Colors of Madeline #1). I have had this book FOREVER. I think it was one of the ebooks that started my slow (then rapidly-picking-up-speed) descent into having too many books to handle. If Trish Dollar loves it, then I know I will.
  • These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman (Starbound #1). Another book that I have had for a long time. It came out a year ago, and it deserves to be read, reviewed and put to bed.

Here are the rules (from Fantasy is More Fun):

  1. Great list! I had to laugh at the one with the horrible title – I’ve grabbed a few like that out of a morbid curiosity. Hopefully it will surprise you. I have a couple Colleen Hoover books that make the Read-a-thon cut too, Ugly Love and Hopeless. Looking forward to it! I’ll be tweeting and *may* run some sprints or photo ops at #COYER;)
