COYER Summer Reading List | July Readathon!
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!

My COYER Summer Reading List summary page.



For those of us participating in the Summer Reading List part of this summer's COYER Challenge, our hosts have announced three different readathons for each month of the challenge:

 

  • Read-a-thon Dates are
    • June 25th – July 2nd ~ read only ebooks
    • July 23rd to July 30th ~ read only physical books
    • August 20th to August 27th ~ read only audio and ebooks


In anticipation of this readathon, I chose to add five physical books to my COYER Summer Reading List after finishing my first five books from the original list.  The decision was made based on the fact that I really just wanted to try and finish reading the last five Steele Street books I have left to finish reading.  I acquired the last of the eleven book series at the beginning of this year and have just been looking for a chance to read them.

 


Of course, Booklikes-opoly is still ongoing, so, once again, I may not be able to focus solely on this readathon, but will only count towards the thon, the physical books from my current reading list.  And hopefully I'll make some good progress.

My attention has already been scattered today.  As the first day of the thon, I'd hoped to be able to start one of the above books, but it looks like I will have to give it some time.  Currently I'm still in the midst of reading books for BLopoly, both of which are great books and should be easy reads, so hopefully I'll be able to break into my reading list again.

Reading progress update: I've read 194 out of 194 pages.
No Longer Human, Volume 2 - Osamu Dazai,Usamaru Furuya

Finished! This was a lot better than the first volume, in part because I've accepted that this is Furuya's No Longer Human rather than a true adaptation of Dazai's book. Furuya and my interpretations of the book differ wildly.

 

While I thought this volume was better, I've decided I'm going to stop here. This volume ends on a relatively positive note, and I'd rather end things here than watch

Yozo's too-good-for-him fiancee get raped and then probably blamed for her own rape by Yozo.

It´s this time of the year

Last week has been my first week at work again after having had a three week vacation. And as every year this week has been an exhausting one. And as every year, I´m hitting a reading slump after my vacation (and for that matter an internet slump as well). I haven´t picked up a physical book in over a week and the only thing I could manage was listening to audiobooks.

 

Still Life - Louise Penny  A Fatal Grace - Louise Penny  

 

I´ve finished Stil Life last week and started the second book in the chief inspector Garmache series right away. These are the perfect books in my present state of mind. A mystery set in a quaint Canadian small town, with a likeable main character and with a cozy feel to it.

 

And to ease myself back into reading physical books, I picked up another one of my Agatha Christie books. I hope this one will be the perfect palate cleanser:

 

The Body in the Library - Agatha Christie

 

Keeping my fingers crossed that I can break through my slump.

Reading progress update: I've read 207 out of 574 pages.
The Dinosaur Lords: A Novel - Victor Milán

It bothers me that this dinosaur is able to sweat. Neither reptiles nor birds can do that, so I'd think dinosaurs wouldn't be able to either.

The Dinosaur Lords: A Novel - Victor Milán

Melodia to Jaume. She fears for her father's life and wants to go help him, but Jaume holds her back:

 

"She snarled at him, feeling a raptorish urge to take a bite out of his face."

 

I think this might be my favorite line in the book so far.
