Calendar Girls July Wrap Up

Such a fun month learning about your favorite OTP’s, and least favorite during the Twitter chat! OTP’s don’t have to be perfect for each other. They don’t even have to actually get together in a book. It’s all about the feels and the chemistry!

I am so glad this choice won! Throughout both books, I had been dying for these two just to kiss. They are perfect for each other, and, obviously care about each other. There was that one moment of vulnerability between the two that just made me swoon, but we never quite get them coming together as a couple when they clearly should be!

Reminders:

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 (August 19th), 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!

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.
