Yay, it’s that time of year to start gearing up for Wyrd & Wonder. This is a month long blogging event hosted by imyril, Lisa, and Jorie celebrating all things Fantasy! Of course, I’m all about Fantasy here at WTF, so I absolutely love this event. This is a time for me to show some extra love to my favorite genre. You can find out more about Wyrd & Wonder or sign up for it here.
A Wyrd & Wonder TBR
This year for my Wyrd & Wonder reading I’m going to focus on some titles that have been in my TBR for a little while that will also make good mood reads. Look, it’s tough being a reader right now. I don’t want to read too many….heavy books right now. So I’m going with some things that I know will probably bring me some joy and not weigh me down. 🙂
The Shores of Spain by J. Kathleen Cheney
This is the final book in The Golden City trilogy. I admit I’ve kind of been dragging out reading this series, partly because I don’t want it to be over. Cheney’s become one of my favorite authors–I love the way she blends fantasy, romance and mystery in her books. Very much looking forward to this one and also finishing up a beloved series!
The Absinthe Early by Sharon Lynn Fisher
I picked this up last year and I keep meaning to read it but you know, intentions and all that. Now is the perfect time to dive in though! Very much looking forward to checking this one out. 🙂
A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn
I’m super excited about this book because it looks like EXACTLY my type of story and I can’t thank Mary from Sophril Reads enough for sending this book my way. <3<3<3
The Waking Land by Callie Bates
This is a book that keeps ending up on my TBR lists and not actually getting read. Let’s see if third (or fourth?) time’s the charm! I’m going to buckle down and make this one a priority.
Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker with art by Wendy Xu
My husband bought me this one for Christmas and I haven’t gotten around to it yet. It should be a quick read and looks like something I’m also in the mood for so bring it on! I’m ready!
And…that’s it as far as my TBR. I’m not putting too much pressure on myself for reading for this event, going to keep things nice and chill and see what happens. And if I don’t get to these, you know what? That’s OKAY. Mood reading is OKAY right now. If all I can concentrate on are happy fluffy books and that’s what gets me through the next month and even the the next one, that’s what I’m going to do. Anyway. We’ll see how this TBR goes. 😀
Very much looking forward to another Wyrd & Wonder event, last year was so much fun! In addition to reading, I should have other fun posts coming up related to some of the prompts for this year. 🙂 Are you joining in Wyrd & Wonder? What are your plans for it so far? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
