Summon your friends! Stock up your book bags of holding! Fear no creaking TBR! It’s May the 1st and you know what that means: it’s the start of an epic month of celebrating the fantastic with Wyrd and Wonder.
It’s just ten days to go until a month of Wyrd and Wonder! I’ll once again be spending May celebrating the fantastic with a band of like-minded dreamers. I can’t resist starting to plan what I’ll be reading, and if you fancy a challenge I have some suggestions for you…
Wyrd and Wonder is back this May for another month of celebrating the fantastic! We’ll be reading, watching, listening and gaming our way through every nook and cranny of the fantasy genre, and sharing our enthusiasm online through our blogs and social media feeds.
A dark corridor stretches before you. You strain to make out the faint sounds echoing off its walls. Are there voices in the distance? Yes! There is a flicker of light ahead. Getting closer, the excited chatter becomes distinct. It is a group of adventurers. Wait, are they clutching book bags?

This week, we were asked what books we would rename… you know where I’m taking this at this time of year, right?
This is it: the end of The Poison Song read-along. We have followed our heroes (and Hest) from one end of Sarn to the other. We have shared their victories and their dismays. Now it’s time to find out which will triumph: love or vengeance. I am not ready.
October is here. The pumpkins have begun their annual supermarket takeover. And starting next weekend your #WyrdAndWonder crew will be back for our 13 day mini-season of #SpooktasticReads!
