Hosted by Flavia the Bibliophile, Dani @ Mousai Books, and Darque Reader Reads. Calendar Girls is a monthly blog event created by Melanie at MNBernard Books, and Flavia at Flavia the Bibliophile. 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!
The theme for May is World Turtle Day: Favorite Slow Burn of a Novel (either a slow burn romance or a book that was really slow). I actually had to consult Goodreads to see if I’ve actually read any slow burn romance books, and I discovered that I have read some, but very few.
My pick for this month is:
The Wrath and the Dawn is a book that I consider to be a romance book for readers who don’t really read romance. It’s a book that I love, and I loved the romance in it too. I will read anything that Renée Ahdieh writes.
