We have had an absolutely OUTSTANDING Calendar Girls August so far! I’ve added several books to my tbr (which is still just barely staying below 100…) and met some awesome new bloggers to follow! Still to come is our August chat, and voting for a favorite August pick!
Don’t forget to sign up for the Calendar Girls Newsletter! You wouldn’t want to miss important information just because you missed a post. 😉
The chat is scheduled for August 19th at 8 EST on twitter using the hashtag #CGBChat. The more people participate the more fun we have, so if at all possible try to make it! We are potentially thinking about moving the chat to a different time, so if 8 EST is a big problem for you PLEASE let me know in the comments.
And to vote for your favorite August pick, check out the poll here.
But now, it’s time to start prepping for September! The votes are in, and it was close, but the September theme is…
Back to School
Best Novel Set in a School
So we’ll see you all on September 3 with your favorite novel set in summer! Don’t forget to link back to me and Darque Dreamer, then visit everyone else and give them some love.
Make sure to vote for the October theme! (Same poll as the August winner) We will be choosing between:
- Hocus Pocus: Favorite Book with Witches
- Monster Mash: Favorite Genre Mash-Up
- Thriller Night: Favorite Undead Book
Voting is open until September 9th.
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, and Adrienne at Darque Dreamer Reads. 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!
The first Monday of each month is book choice day for that month’s theme. This is where you can rant and rave about your favorite pick for the current month, as well as see what everyone else chose.
The second Monday of each month Katie and Adrienne will be announcing the theme for the upcoming month, the chat reminder, and the voting form for both the next month’s theme, and the current month’s popular choice.
The last Monday of each month will be recap day! Katie and Adrienne will make sure to update you on the current month’s popular choice, the chat recap, and the upcoming month’s theme.
