Calendar Girls May Theme

Haha, I got your FIIIIRST, nanny-nanny boo-boo!

If I’m being honest, I completely hate that meme. But I am sooooooo psyched for May! Time to share some personal news: I quit my job. I’m just so miserable, I hate my job, I hate my commute, I hate not spending time with my kids. PLUS, working on a library degree I need to be at a school that, you know, HAS A LIBRARY. So I quit. And it feels SOOOOOO GOOD. So yeah, I’m totally psyched for May. Counting the days, even.

Except, it’s also terrifying because I don’t have a job for next year yet. So pray for me friends!

Anyway, Calendar Girls May promises to be super exciting as well! The votes are in, and our theme is ready to go! Drumroll please…











Mother’s Day: Favorite Book with a Mother/Daughter Relationship

I’m very excited for this theme. Partly because I always appreciate a great mother/daughter relationship in a book, and partly because it’s always a good laugh seeing everyone complain about the lack of parents in YA books. And since most of our Calendar Girls participants talk about mostly YA books, I’m kind of looking forward to watching y’all fret about this one. *evil laughter*

Don’t forget to join us next week on Twitter for the #CGBchat! We’re looking forward to talking about plot twists with you! The more people participating the better, so be there or be SQAURE!

Make sure to vote for the June theme! Voting will be open until May 5. Vote now so you don’t forget!

Calendar Girls is a monthly blog event created by Melanie at MNBernard Books, and Flavia at Flavia the Bibliophile, and is 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.Paragraph

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!

  1. I think May’s theme is going to be a tough one for me. I will have to do some deep diving…

    As for your personal news, I am both really excited/happy and really nervous for you. I know how it feels to be in that exact situation so all I will say is that I am sending tons of positive vibes and thoughts, and if you need ANYTHING, especially in the library lane (whether it is school or job related) I am more than happy to assist! :]
