Calendar Girls: January Theme and Updates

Happy December Calendar Girls Participants!

Katie and I hope you stayed warm while talking about your favorite books set in Winter, AND we hope you are having a happy holiday season!!! I know I sure am! My days have been filled with love, family, and fun! I also love going out and looking at all the holiday lights. Really puts me in a mood for a feel good book!


Now that our December choices have been made, it’s time to announce the theme for January (Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?


Drum roll please!



And the theme for January is:

Happy New Year: 2019 Release You’re Most Looking Forward To


I am so excited for this theme because it means I get to gush about an upcoming title that I have been dying to read! Yes, I already have my choice in mind. Do you?

January Theme


With January’s Theme voted for, this means it’s time to vote for December’s Popular Pick, and February’s Theme. You can vote for both in the google doc belowVoting for December’s Popular Pick will close this Friday, December 21st after the Twitter chat ends. Voting for the February Theme will close Sunday, January 13th at midnight EST.


Post Schedule Reminder:

The first Monday of each month is book choice day for that month’s theme. This is where you can rant and rave about your favorite pick for the current month, as well as see what everyone else chose.

The second Monday of each month Katie and Adrienne will be announcing the theme for the upcoming month, the chat reminder, and the voting form for both the next month’s theme, and the current month’s popular choice.

The last Monday of each month will be recap day! Katie and Adrienne will make sure to update you on the current month’s popular choice, the chat recap, and the upcoming month’s theme.



We decided to try something different this month for our Twitter Chat! Starting Monday, December 17, we will post one question a day for 5 days under the hashtag #CGBChat, so you will have all day to respond to each question! So, keep an eye on mine and Katie’s Twitter Feeds!

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.

      1. I’ve honestly been slacking a lot on blogging and blog hopping lately still because I’ve been so focused on my exercise routine and not sitting still for more than an hour at a time, but I always look forward to Calendar Girls! ❤ Make sure you vote on the google doc in this post ❤


  1. What is going to be difficult for me with January’s theme is that the 2019 release I’m most looking forward to, I technically already read. I’ll have to look over my other anticipated releases for 2019 and see what other books could be my pick.
