How is it March already?! Time sure does fly. But anyway, I’m very excited to greet March, as this means our third set of posts will be going up. And March is also my birthday month! Yay! For those of you new to Calendar Girls, it’s a new blog event which I am co-hosting with my friend Melanie inspired by Neil Sedaka’s 1961 song Calendar Girl. Just like in the song, we decided to use a specific theme for each month and choose a book based on these themes! The event is meant to incite discussions with other bloggers about books we’ve read and loved, is meant to help bloggers meet other bloggers, and also for bloggers and readers to find out about blogs which they normally may not have come across!
If this sounds like your cup of tea, please check out Melanie’s or my launch post for more info, and sign up if you are still interested after reading everything. Also, if you would like to see examples of past posts, you can look at Melanie and I’s January posts here and here, where the posts of other participants will also be listed. We’d love to have you join in the fun!
And now…without further ado, here is my choice for March’s theme…
– Best Book with an Active War –
The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien!
I don’t even know if I should have to explain this one, haha. I’m a mega Tolkien fan, and have known about his stories since I was very very small, since my father read most of his books. Sadly, I was only mature enough to read and understand The Lord of the Rings, but I am so glad that I did. By that point, I’d already read The Hobbit multiple times, and had seen the film trilogy even more times. But reading the book trilogy itself was quite an experience. The world which I had loved from my first contact with it, was laid out in even more detail than before, and I happily soaked it all up. The battles which take place in the third and finally book in the series, are some of the most epic which I have ever experienced (cinematically and in literature). Therefore, even though I could have picked this book, or series, for April’s theme (see below), I have decided to pick it for this month in stead, and I will pick something else entirely for April!
More to come!
