Summer TBR Wipeout Sign Up and Goal

Hosted by Candid Cover
So I'm not off to the greatest start with my COYER summer reading list, but last year this challenge was a huge help with my COYER list. I would like to try to read 6 books off the list for the challenge. I will be back for weekly updates again, which really motivates me to keep going with the challenge.

Release I Missed Midyear Update

Today I'm posting an update on the releases I missed posts that went live in January. I don't usually do midyear updates, but since I'm trying to read books oof these lists an update is sometimes helpful to see the progress. I started off the year with 16 books on my 2013, 2014, 2015 list and I'm now down to 13 even though I have finished Everything Leads to You yet. I'm counting it because I'm going to finish it in the next couple of days. 

My 2016 list had 14 books at the beginning of the year and now I'm down to 13, so I've only read one book so far. 
I started off with 14 books for my 2017 releases and I have read one book taking my total down to 13 books. 


This is the first time that all three lists have had the same number of books on them, but I'm definetly hoping to read some more books off these lists before the end of the year. 

So far this year I have read 5 books off these lists. Destiny Rewritten is a 2013 Release, Ophelia and Everything Leads to You are 2014 Releases, First Comes Love is a 2016 Release, and Lucky in Love is a 2017 Release. 

This is one of my favorite posts to do every January and I think it helps keep me accountable for the books that I do want to read.

Down the TBR Hole 20-30



21,22,23 Then Came You, Summerland, and Stay: I'm interested in reading all this authors, but I haven't read anything by them yet. Yes do I see these books eventually being read or deleted from the list yes, but for now I'm comfortable leaving them on the list.

24. The Five People You Meet in Heaven: I read a book by Mitch Albom years ago and I have never picked him up again despite that I liked that book that I previously read. I'm deleting off the list because I don't think I'm going to read it.

25. Will Grayson Will Grayson: this book is saved by my Deal Me In Challenge. I don't think I want to read this book, but it is on my list I made in 2015, so I'm going to at least try it before I delete it.

26, 27. The Shadow of the Bear and Beauty: these were in my early days of fairy tale retellings and I read more fairy tale retellings when I added these two. I'm taking them off the list because I have so many newer retellings I'm excited to read.

28. The Sky is Everywhere: I own this one and I do plan to read it pretty soon.

29. Why We Broke Up: this was all the rage in my early days of watching booktube, but I have never got around to it, so I'm going to let it go off my list.

30. Stealing Parker: I read the first bookt his year, so I'm excited to read this book pretty soon.

April and May Wrap Up and June TBR

April was an awesome month for reading. After You took me a little bit to get into, but I ended up enjoying it. I really loved They Both Die at the End and The Belles. I ended the month with a book that has been on my TBR forever Enchanted. It was the perfect fairy tale retelling I needed.

I came into a small reading slump in May. I wanted to read The Library Card to take another book off my owned TBR. I ended up not enjoying the book and it took me a lot longer to read than it should of. I also finished The Summer List, which I started in March. I didn't really enjoy this book until the end, but overall it was a pretty forgetable novel for me. I just overall didn't feel like reading in May. I'm happy to tell you that it changed in June and I finished a book early in the month and I'm enjoying the book I'm reading currently. 



I read 4/6 books on my March TBR as of now. I have already finished In Conclusion Don't Worry About It. It only takes about a half an hour to read. I'm currently reading First Comes Love and I'm about 100 pages from the finish. I'm so excited for My Plain Jane. It has been the book that I'm most excited to read this year.

The One with the Twist

I don't know which order I'll complete the events in yet. I'm going to be focusing on the list throughout the whole COYER, so I really just need to do the strict and the twist. 

In honor of all the nostalgia going on I combined my old COYER lists to make the new list plus I added a few new books. This will be my reading plan for the summer with a few variations I'm sure. 

The first picture is the kindle books I would like to read this summer. 


These next two pictures are books I will get from the library. 

This last picture is books that I own.
