Calendar Girls July Wrap-Up

Can you believe summer is almost over? I’ve sent my boys to daycare today, and next week I have to go back to work. 😦

I don’t know about anyone else, but I had a wonderful time this July talking about romance in books, and our OTPs. Though, truthfully, you all are a little too nice, I was hoping for some Hunger Games style battling for our favorites.

Just kidding!

#CGBchat

Wow, we had an engaging and enthusiastic discussion about OTPs this month on twitter! Thanks to all who participated, it was great fun! You can catch up on the chat by following the hashtag #CGBchat, or by clicking on the tweets below.

Calendar Girls August

Our August theme is Book Lover’s Day: Favorite Book You’ve Read This Year. I guess I’ll clarify that I don’t think this has to be new releases, just favorite thing you’ve read. I’m really excited to see what some of y’all’s favorite books have been and maybe adding some to my tbr!

Our August schedule is:

  • Monday August 5 – Calendar Girls August Posts (don’t forget to link back to me and Adrienne!)
  • Friday August 9 – Book Lovers Day
  • Thursday August 15 – First Day of School (*dies*)
  • Monday August 12 – Adrienne and I will announce the September theme
  • Monday August 19 – Friday August 23 – #CGBChat
  • Monday August 26 – August Wrap-Up

Thanks everyone! I know I say it every month, but you guys make my month. Hope to see EVERYONE at the #CGBchat this month on Twitter. MARK YOUR CALENDARS! The chat can be so much fun, but only with lots of participation. Anyway, love you guys.

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!Paragraph
