#January2021CalendarGirls

Hosted by Flavia the BibliophileDani @ 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!

*Disclaimer: When the theme was announced for this month, I knew that I was going to pick this book.  My decision to pick this book, especially right now is very timely.  

I thought that the movie adaptation of this book was done very well, and really helped to bring the story to life.

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.

The theme for April is National Library Week- Favorite book I discovered at the library.

I think this is a great topic, while many libraries are closed right now, it is still important to show support for them.  One of the ways that you can support your library through this time is to utilize digital resources for borrowing eBooks, Audiobooks, Magazines, and Movies.

Since being a volunteer at a local library I have come across some great books.  My choice isn’t a single book it’s a series and an author.  My pick for this month is The Land of Stories series by Chris Colfer.  I think Chris Colfer is a brilliant author who has a way with building amazing worlds and creating great stories.

The theme for March is Saint Patrick’s Day- Book with favorite Mythical Creature.

For me, this one was easy, as I had a few choices and one of them was obvious but I decided against going with the more obvious one and went with something different.  My pick for this month is:

wp-1583152649406.jpg

I went with Lord of the Rings because it has such a variety of mythical creatures.  If you want to know my favorite creatures from this gem of a novel (not a trilogy) they are the Hobbits and the Elves.
