Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday dear COYER (and Berls LOL), Happy Birthday to you!
And so it begins! COYER’s birthday isn’t officially until August 20th, but like any five year old it wanted a big celebration. So we’re giving COYER the best time we could think of be recapping all the COYER events we’ve had over the past five years. And like most birthday parties, there’s a goody bag for you to fill up! For full details, rules, etc check out the sign-up post.
This is fully detailed in the sign-up post, but don’t forget that our fun kicks off Sunday with a Twitter Party! That’s Sunday, June 10th @ 4pm EST – we hope you can join us!
After that we’ll be going strong with our Social Media Games in the Facebook Group. Here’s a reminder of the schedule (begins Monday, June 11th):
- Monday: What are you reading?
- Tuesday: Cora COYER
- Wednesday: Let’s tell a story…
- Thursday: Tell Me with a GIF
- Friday: Grant a Wish
- Saturday: Let’s Get Nostalgic… COYER Trivia
- Sunday: COYER Update – we’ll update you and you tell us how you did last week!
Thank you to those that reached out to host a mini-challenge (don’t forget to claim your extra goody in the giveaway widget below!). Thanks to our hosts, we’ll be having five mini-challenges this COYER. Add these dates to your calendar… and we’ll share links with you on the blog, as well as in the FB group and on twitter as the mini-challenges begin! We’ve got a snapshot of the challenge, but see the hosts links for full details – many have giveaways :).
- Mini-Challenge hosted by Kristen @ Book Monsters: This is June 18-24th, so get ready! – with this challenge you’ll be doing a bit of a scavenger hunt to go along with the fairy tale readathon 🙂

- Mini-Challenge Hosted by Stephanie @ Once Upon a Chapter: This challenge will run August 6th – 19th! There’s two components though, so you’ll want to stop by the 6th – 13th and again the 14th – 19th! With this challenge you’ll be snapping a pic of your favorite snack during Summer COYER.
- Mini-Challenge Hosted by Michelle & Berls @ COYER!:: This Challenge runs August 19 – August 25th and it’s a great big week of COYER trivia!
The Review Linky and Goody Bag Widget
For everything else, be sure to refer to the sign-up post, as it’s too much to restate here.
As usual, we’ll keep the review linky on it’s own page to keep this page loading more quickly. You’ll also be able to access it from the top Navigation bar – under Current Review Linky.
There will be two grand prize winners, one for the review linky and one for the Goody Bag. EVERYONE should link their reviews to the review linky to be considered for the prize. Every goody has it’s own requirements, so read what it’s asking for in the giveaway widget below carefully. Good luck!
Update!: We had to switch giveaway tools on 6/14. We’re sorry for the inconvenience, but we figured fix it early rather than waiting for days! Here’s what you need to do:
- Use the SAME email address you were using on the former widget. If you don’t remember what it was, ask us in the FB group, we’ll help you.
- Re-enter your links/points for everything EXCEPT Goody #2: Comment on Reviews and Goody #6: I participated in FB Games today!
- Give Berls a little time to get missing points from Goody #2 and Goody #6 added back in!
- That’s it!
Thanks and again sorry about the confusion!
