Welcome to Way Too Fantasy!
Way too Fantasy was originally formed in December 2012 by friends from a NaNoWriMo group. Since then it has been through many incarnations including a quarterly fantasy webzine and resources site for fantasy writers and NaNo-novelists. After taking some time off of blogging, I decided to re-boot the site as a fantasy book reveiw blog.
I am the lone member left of the original WTF crew. My name is Lisa and I was born in Baltimore, Maryland where I still live along with my husband and three cats. I’ve been reading fantasy books as long as I could read; the first stories I remember are fantasy and I believe I may have been a bit obsessed with Narnia as a small child.
What I love so much about the fantasy genre is the overall sense of wonder from the impossible becoming possible and the creativity that goes into crafting made-up worlds. I’d say my favorite subgenres are currently Urban Fantasy, Historical Fantasy and Fantasy of Manners, but I try and read all over the genre. One of the best things about Fantasy is how varied it is in the types of stories that are being told! I like reading books that are classics in the genre as well as new books that are being published. Despite reading on average 52 books a year, my to-be-read pile continues to grow.
You can also find me hanging about reddit in the r/fantasy forum as /u/lrich1024, talking about books and answering questions about Fantasy Book Bingo.
My non-writing interests are wide and varied. Current interests include reddit, K-dramas, tea parties, and wearing silly hats.
