Welcome to Calendar Girls Books! It’s a monthly blog event designed to ignite bookish discussions among readers. Calendar Girls Books was inspired by the 1961 Neil Sedaka song, Calendar Girl! Katie @ Never Not Reading and Darque Reader Reads have to take a break from running the event due to some circumstances, and I’ve decided to take up the reigns alongside Dani @ Mousai Books in the meantime
⤖ About Calendar Girls Books ⬻
Just like the song, each month has a different, participant-chosen theme, and each blogger picks a book they think best matches that theme (and keep it secret). On the first Monday of the month, every participant, posts reveals their pick, makes a post about it (see the archives below for examples) and links back to the hostess’s posts.
⤖ Stay Up To Date ⬻
We have a newsletter which you can sign up for just to keep you up to date on everything. We only send out emails 1-3 times a month, so we wouldn’t clog up your inbox! The newsletters contain updates regarding the Twitter chat, when posts will be going up (if we ever have to change the date), and will also contain important polls for the months to come! You will be able to pick the favourite pick of the month, as well as the theme for the month to come.
⤖ Let’s Chat! ⬻
Not only that, but we also started up a monthly twitter chat using the hashtag: #CGBChat! Every third Sunday of the month at 8PM EST, Melanie and I will start off the chat with a discussion question or two to get the ball rolling. From there, just use the hashtag in all your tweets and let the 140 characters fly!
The chat portion of the event is on hold for now.
⤖ Readalongs ⬻
We will now also be hosting read-a-longs with books based on the monthly theme! Our first read-a-long is taking place in July! See more below.
