The My Life In Books tag has become an annual tradition for me as a fun way to highlight the previous year’s reads from unexpected angles. I found it via The Captain and Laura Tisdall, but it originated (as far as I can tell) with Adam at Roof Beam Reader in 2010. This post has the honour and the burden of being my 1500th, apparently (whaaaaaaat) but let’s not tell it so – that’s a lot of pressure to perform.

This tag (possibly created by Amanda from A Brighter Shade of Hope) is an excuse to celebrate the characters who stole our hearts. I had a ball taking it for Wyrd and Wonder and wanted to revisit it with a SF spin for SciFiMonth – but as I didn’t get to it, I’m dusting it off to start the year.
Hallowe’en and SciFiMonth have been and gone, the first frost has needed clearing off the car windscreen and the first Christmas lights have appeared around the neighbourhood – I haven’t succumbed to a mince pie (yet), but it’s about the time I take Ariel Bissett‘s End of The Year book tag.
We’re nearly halfway through August, we’re in the middle of a heatwave and my brain is slowly simmering – so it must be time for a refreshing summer book tag. Luckily, Louise @ Monstrumology pointed me at this excellent option created by Bookables.
The Fantasy Hive are hosting their annual celebration of Women In SFF, with an epic array of reviews, interviews, guest posts and other original content. The Tag Team tag was the perfect excuse to team up with my best blog buddy Lisa and get involved…
Midsummer has been and gone, so as we approach the end of June I’m taking a moment to catch my breath and look back at the year’s reading so far.
As this is Wyrd & Wonder The Fifth, I’m taking every opportunity to do things in fives. That makes this year the perfect excuse to revisit the 5 Star Books In 5 Words tag (originally created by Matthew Sciarappa), right?
I saw this tag over at Space and Sorcery (possibly created by Amanda from A Brighter Shade of Hope, but if so the original has been taken down). This is an excuse to celebrate the characters who stole our hearts, so it’s a joy to give it a fantasy spin for Wyrd and Wonder.
We’re a quarter of the way through 2022 already (whut) and when I saw this meme over at Books, Bones & Buffy it felt like a great way to observe the milestone. The format originated with girlxoxo to check in on the reads that made the biggest impression during the first part of the year. Let’s do this!
NEVER HAVE I EVER…
This tag was created by Madame Writer/Anne with a Book for us to explore (or lie about) our deepest darkest bookish sins. I was tagged by BookForager nearly a year ago (ah, time, that mysterious alchemy of days) so it’s probably about time I came clean…
I love the My Life In Books meme as a way of looking back at the previous year’s reading. I found it last year via The Captain and Laura Tisdall, but it originated (as far as I can tell) with Adam at Roof Beam Reader in 2010.
I found this fabulously festive book tag at the Wicked Witch’s blog and couldn’t resist. It was originally created by The Bumbling Bibliophile and Queen of Contemporary (but so long ago the original posts seem to have been archived). Yes, I should be focusing on reviews, shh.
Happy Sinterklaas! While I’m not particularly attached to any traditions, I grew up celebrating Sinterklaas and Christmas, and December 5th lets me know the end of the year is in sight… which means it must be time to roll out Ariel Bissett‘s End of The Year book tag. And eat chocolate.
I had a hoot taking the Bookish Memory Check for Wyrd and Wonder, and when Tanja jogged my memory by running an SFnal edition over at Where Stories Lie, I knew it was going to be my first tag of the month. I like to think my TBR and my shelves are fairly curated, so I should know what all these books are about, right? Yes, well, let’s find out!
Welcome back to Spooktastic Reads, the autumnal mini-event that celebrates the darker side of fantasy. Over the next 13 days, I will be enthusing about haunts, folklore, urban legends and horror (and any other spooktastic fantasy I fancy) along with co-hosts Lisa and Jorie and our brave party of adventurers. I’m kicking off with a seasonal book tag…
