Calendar Girls June Theme


It’s not like I’m counting the days to summer vacation, or anything, but it’s 10 school days.

Hem. Which means, it’s time to talk about the Calendar Girls June theme! The votes are in, and the victory was overwhelming. Our June theme will be…









Pride: Favorite Book with LGBTQ+ Representation

I am really looking forward to this theme! Book bloggers as a community tend to be really hyper-aware of representation in books, and we seem to be especially concerned about LGBT rep. So I think there are going to be a lot of different picks, and I hope we can make each other more aware of some great books with representation.

That being said, I’m also kind of torn, because the book I *want* to talk about, saying it in conjunction with this theme would be a HUGE spoiler, one I’ve avoided posting many times on my blog. But at this point, the book’s been out for two years, so maybe it’s okay? If you’ve read it, you know what I’m talking about. I would love to hear your thoughts.

Don’t forget to join us for the #CGBchat next week on Twitter!

Make sure to vote for the July theme!

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.

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!
