Please let us know if for some reason we missed your post from this month!
The votes came in, and the Popular Choice for Favorite Book With a Strong Female Lead is:
I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai
I have not read this book yet, but the story sounds extremely powerful! And, what better way to celebrate Women’s History Month and Strong Female leads than with the pick of a true story about a courageous woman standing up for what’s right?
This month’s chat was so fun! We really enjoyed talking about strong female leads and what makes them strong.
April is almost here and with it comes a very fun theme:
April Fools: Favorite Book with a Surprise Ending or Twist
We are looking forward to hearing all about those twisty books! Even though there are so many books in the world, there are only so many ways a plot line can be written before it starts to feel predictable, so when we find those hidden surprises and twists, they are always welcome and exciting!
Don’t forget to join us for our new Twitter chat schedule. Instead of chatting for an hour one day of the month, we decided to spread it out over 5 days to allow more of you to be able to participate! Starting the 3rd Monday of the month (April 15th), each week day will have a new question under the hashtag #CGBChat, and you will have the whole week to join in on the fun!
We hope this helps with those who have never been able to attend the chats before. ❤
And, don’t forget to vote for May’s theme! Voting will close Sunday, April 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.
