Calendar Girls is back baby!
Calendar Girls is a monthly blog event created by Melanie at MNBernard Books, and Flavia at Flavia the Bibliophile, and will now be hosted by me (!), Katie. It is designed to ignite bookish discussions among readers, and was inspired by the 1961 Neil Sedaka song, Calendar Girl.
Just like the song, each month has a different theme. Each blogger picks their favorite book from the theme, and on the first Monday of the month reveals their pick in a Calendar Girls post. Make sure to post back to the hostess’s post, and I will make a master list for the month. The master lists allow everyone to see the other Calendar Girls’ picks and to pop on over to their blogs. Thus, we all get to chat about books and even make some new friends!
There will also be a monthly chat about the theme on twitter. Every third Sunday of the month at 8PM EST, I will start off the chat with a discussion question or two to get the ball rolling. From there we’ll use the hashtag #CGBChat to chat and gif and generally have a grand ol’ time.
Not only that, but we also started up a monthly twitter chat using the hashtag: #CGBChat! Every third Sunday of the month at 8PM EST, I will start off the chat with a discussion question or two to get the ball rolling. From there, just use the hashtag in all your tweets and let the 140 characters fly!
If you’re interested in participating in Calendar Girls drop me a DM on twitter or shoot me an email. But there’s no requirements to meet! All you have to do is post a post on the first Monday of the month and link back to me. 🙂
I would also love to co-host! *wink wink* *hint hint*
For August we’ll be choosing between:
- Dog Days of Summer: Best Novel Set in Summer
- Summer Lovin’: Your Bookish OTP
Let the voting commence!
