I say this each time, but boy did May sure fly by! We hope you enjoyed Mother’s Day if you celebrated, and we hope you enjoyed talking about Mother/Daughter relationships in books. They are always so hard to get correct, and sometimes it’s a difficult decision on whether we want to read idyllic relationships, or toxic ones.

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 with a Mother/Daughter Relationship is:
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
I think this was the perfect pick, especially since there were multiple daughters with different personalities and lives to each relate to their mother in their own way. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this in my honorable mentions!
This month’s chat was very endearing! We hope you enjoyed it, and, as always, don’t forget that you can join it later on by clicking on the threads below.
I am so very proud of our June theme:
PRIDE: Favorite Book with LGBTQ+ Representation
I cannot wait to see all those amazing LGBTQ+ rep books! We definitely don’t see enough of them with proper, and respectful, representation.

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 (June 17th), 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 July’s theme! Voting will close Sunday, June 9th 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.
