I’ve seen this tag floating around a ton on book Twitter and other bloggers’ sites, so I thought I’d join in the fun! The original tag was created by ReadLikeWildfire and Earl Grey Books.
By the end of June I’d read 34 books. I set my goal for 52 this year, so it looks like I’m ahead of my pace of one book per week. I’ll take it since you never know what might randomly pop up in life. Without a doubt most of the books I’ve read so far fall within the fantasy genre. I haven’t read much nonfiction this year, but I have a few in my queue at the moment that I really want to read.

What landscapes or locations feel particularly fantastical to you – and why? Could be (cover) artworks, film / tv locations, places you’ve visited, castles, spooky houses, soaring towers in mountains, beautiful woodland groves, shadowy urban fantasy streets, pools like portals to other worlds – what makes your imagination sing?
About Wyrd and Wonder
Though not defined as a readathon, I decided to keep rolling with team-based reading and join Wyrd and Wonder for the month of May. Wyrd and Wonder, now in its fifth year, is essentially a month-long celebration of all things fantasy. The form of the fantasy content doesn’t matter; it can be in various forms including books, movies, art, games, etc. It’s hosted by Imyril at There’s Always Room for One More, Lisa at Dear Geek Place, Jorie at Jorie Loves a Story, Annemieke at A Dance With Books, and Ariana Jane at The Book Nook.
To learn more about Wyrd and Wonder and how to sign up, visit Ariana Jane’s announcement post; she also has an update with a bingo board and read along information. It’s also important to highlight that if you sign up and post about Wyrd and Wonder between May 1-7, you’ll also be entered into a giveaway! To follow along on social media, you can find this event on Twitter @ wyrdandwonder and on Instagram @ wyrdandwonder. There is also a main schedule for Wyrd and Wonder that contains daily prompts and space to link to your intro/wrap-up and review posts during the event.
