Happy Turkey Week America! For those of you who aren’t American, enjoy puzzling over the bizarre traditions we have surrounding a quite unique holiday. One of my favorite that I suggest looking up is the President pardoning a turkey. Like, what?
So, here we are in the last week of November. We’ve had a couple of new faces to Calendar Girls this month, welcome! I hope you all have enjoyed the opportunity to talk about some SUUUUUUUPER strange books! I didn’t think any of you would be able to come up with anything more bizarre than my pick, but boy was I wrong! Congrats to everyone for being so widely read in weird stories!
Eleven: Strangest Book You’ve Ever Read
Middlesex – Katie (that’s me!) @ Never Not Reading
Etiquette and Espionage – Adrienne @ Darque Dreamer Reads
Wink Poppy Midnight – Ashley @ Inside My Minds
Dark Matter – Teri Polen

Our Favorite Pick Is…
This might be our first ever tie! Hitchhiker’s Guide, Etiquette & Espionage, and Wink Poppy Midnight all had the same number of votes. So congrats once again to all for picking such odd yet delightful books!
Calendar Girls December
I’m sure it came to no one’s surprise that the December theme is Christmahanakwanza, Best Diverse Cast. There’s going to be some good books to choose from, and I don’t know how I’m going to choose a favorite. Also, do aliens count as diverse? Asking for a friend…
(Also, speaking of diverse casts, Deanna, if you haven’t looked up Space Opera yet you have to, it was written just for you I think.)
- Monday December 2 – Calendar Girls December Posts (don’t forget to link back to me and Adrienne!)
- Monday December 9 – January theme announcement (you can still vote here!) (please vote!)
- Monday December 30 – Calendar Girls December Wrap-Up
- Tuesday December 31 – New Year’s Eve
Thanks again for participating everyone. As long as it’s that time of year, I hope you know how thankful I am for each and every one of you. I’m sorry I haven’t been around much, but I’ve just got ONE SEMESTER LEFT. And keep praying for that new job to work out… Love yall!
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!
