Please let us know if for some reason we missed your post from this month!
The votes came in, and the Popular Choice for Best Book Set in a School was:
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
Such an iconic story has withstood the test of time and crossed age gaps, it’s no wonder it was the favorite pick for Best Novel Set in a School!
Once again, we had such a great time discussing our picks in this month’s Twitter chat! We talked about favorite required school reading, favorite book teacher, and books we loved that were recommended by teachers or librarians in school. You can read all about it by clicking each question below!
Don’t forget to be thinking about your choice for October. October is my favorite month because it has Halloween!:
October 1 will be post date for this spooky theme. Make sure to find mine and Katie’s posts to link back to that day so we can add you all to the participant list for everybody to blog hop and discuss!
Don’t forget to vote for November’s theme! Voting will close Sunday October 7th at midnight EST.
If you love getting monthly newsletters with updates, make sure you sign up for the Calendar Girls newsletter!
For those who are new to Calendar Girls, it is a monthly blog event that was inspired by the Neil Sedaka song, Calendar Girl. Just like the song, each month has a specific theme, voted on by the participants, where we get to talk about a particular book we love or think fits the theme the best. The blog event was created to incite fun bookish discussions and to spread the blogger love by introducing us to new bloggers and/or books that we have not come across before.
If this sounds like something you would enjoy, make sure to head to my Calendar Girls info page! Drop a comment and let me know if you are interested in joining us.
