Wyrd and Wonder is a celebration of all things fantasy. The format of figurative consumption doesn’t matter. You can read, watch, game, puzzle, etc. anything fantasy! To learn more visit my introduction post, which includes links to the hosts and more information about this month-long appreciation of the fantasy genre.

Part of this celebration includes posting Top 5 lists according to various prompts, if you so choose. Those prompts are available on Imyril’s blog There’s Always Room For One More. This week’s prompt is a Top 5 list of books that feature Wyrd and Wonder mascots.

We’ve had five gorgeous mascots so far: dragon, phoenix, pegasus, raven and wolf. Share some favourite books that feature (one of) these beauties on the cover, as a character or as part of the world-building. Mix and match mascots or focus a top five on your favourite.

In no particular order, here are my top five to answer this prompt.

Mythothon Round 6 Wrap-Up

Last month I participated in my second readathon, the sixth round of Mythothon. I thought after enjoying the Trope-ical Readathon in March I’d try a second round. If you missed my Mythothon announcement post, you can see what books I chose for my line up here.

April ended up being a slightly slower reading month for me than March. I completed three of the five books on my Mythothon TBR, not including the Team book by Agatha Christie. Two of these three books I read were ARCs from NetGalley. I’ve been trying really hard the first half of this year to try and get through most, preferably all, of my ARCs.

The three books I completed are:

  • THESE HOLLOW VOWS by Lexi Ryan (part of my #BeatTheBacklog list)
  • KAIKEYI by Vaishnavi Patel (review)
  • TELL ME AND ENDING by Jo Harkin

I wish I’d been able to read more, but I’m happy I have the time to read at all. And now, if you haven’t noticed yet on my blog, it’s the month of Wyrd and Wonder. This event is a celebration of all things fantasy-related in any media format. There’s no deadline to sign up, so if you’re interested, learn more.

Wyrd and Wonder: Woodland Creatures

Today’s Wyrd and Wonder prompt is woodland creatures. The idea is to share cover art featuring (were)wolves, stags/deer, unicorns, owls, the Fae or other woodland residents. Alternatively, you could share your favorite stories featuring woodland creatures; creatures you think of as being particularly fantastic (why?); or favorite woodland creature characters.

If you’re not sure what Wyrd and Wonder is, check out my introduction post for more information. Imyril, one of the hosts, also has a post with all of the prompts.

Without further ado, in no particular order here’s a short list of books whose covers contain woodland creatures. These are all books I’ve read and/or reviewed.

A year is a long time in reading – what amazing fantasy titles have you enjoyed since last May? If you’ve been on a fantasy-light reading diet recently, how about five books you read during previous Wyrd and Wonders; or five fantasies that have been released since last May that you really want to read?

I’m a bit late with this post as I think the goal of these is to post them each weekend. But I opted to post my mood reading list over the weekend instead. Either way, here are my top 5 fantasy books I’ve read since last May.

Wyrd and Wonder 2022 Introduction

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.
