Free Friday BL-opoly Read: Heat Wave by Merry Farmer, in honor of the heat wave the UK is facing this weekend and into next week. This is one of 30 novellas that RT convention 2017 commissioned for its Magnolias and Moonshine campaign for Atlanta; it is also part of her Nerds of Paradise series. It is a contemporary romance with interracial couple. 104 pages = $2.00.
BL-opoly Read (pre-shake up): Trying to get through His Very Own Girl by Carrie Lofty. It's boring me at the 20% mark, so if it doesn't improve by the 50%, I am going to DNF. I can't wait for D-Day so at least something happens.
Pop Sugar Read: The Silent Governess by Julie Klassen. This is so boring and a bit unrealistic. Christian romance set in rural Regency England. I'm giving it until 50% to get better before I pull the DNF card.
COYER Summer Vacation Reads: Midnight Unbound (Midnight Breeds #14.5) by Lara Adrian, because I wanted something different than historical romance. Since it is a short book, I am also going to try and knock out Midnight in Legend, TN by Magdalena Scott as well.
Ripped Bodice Bingo Read: The Captain's Kidnapped Beauty by Mary Nichols. I just finished this one for the "person in uniform on the cover" square. A Georgian-era romance that takes place in Lisbon and London. I borrowed from the library, so a Library Love Challenge book to boot.
So my son's last day of Kindergarten was yesterday. I can't believe my little boy is going to be a 1st grader already. I forgot how much energy little boys can have, lol.

This is my second COYER (my first was last year's summer edition) and I really enjoy the book discussions (on FB and Twitter) and giving me incentives to keep reading during the summer.
COYER Summer Vacation has two ways to play this year: one way is to do basic "read anything you want in whatever format you want" COYER and the other way is to build your own summer reading list (a throwback to summers spent reading off a list given by teachers). I decided to go with the COYER Summer Reading List, as I like a focused group of books to track. I made two copies of my summer reading list, here on BL and on GR. My list is a mix of print and e-books, all from my personal library. I don't know if I will add more books as I read down the original list (see rules in the linked post); that will be a decision I make come in early August.
For the summer reading list, there will also be mandatory read-a-thons- the last read-a-thon will happen at the same time as Bout of Books Cycle 20, so I can participate in two read-a-thons in one week (of course, the read-a-thons end the day before school starts).
Now I just need to wait patiently for June 17th to come around.
