Well met, traveller! How are your adventures through the realms of fantasy? Varied and satisfying, we hope – but before you head back out in search of another, settle in and I’ll tell you a tale of what the rest of the party have encountered in their genre journeys. That’s right, it’s time for the Quest Log!

It’s Sunday, which means it’s time to share our Fantastic Fives! This week we’re celebrating the mascots who have accompanied us through five years of Wyrd & Wonder and Spooktastic Reads: the dragon, the phoenix, the pegasus, the raven and the wolf.
I’m delighted to announce a very special Wyrd & Wonder giveaway, combining our forest fantasy theme with a spooktastic vibe in honour of Friday the 13th! We have five ARCs of The Dark Between The Trees by Fiona Barnett to giveaway courtesy of the lovely team at Rebellion Publishing – if you’re brave enough!
It’s back to Fionavar for the second week of our read-along. Our earthborn five are scattered: Dave has disappeared, Kevin & Paul are buddying up with Diarmuid, Kim has come face to face with Destiny and Jennifer… seems like she might have a Fate. Let’s talk The Summer Tree!
In a magical fortress on the edge of the world, a runaway slave mage hides from his past until the arrival of a gifted refugee threatens his close-guarded secrets. But who is this girl with the tattooed face, and what does she mean to the rebels surging across the country?
Welcome back to the tavern, traveller! Grab a drink and rest awhile – the first week of Wyrd and Wonder has been busy, so it’s time to settle in and find out what adventures the rest of the party have found as they ventured into the wilds of fantasy. Never fear, your co-hosts have a round-up of all the action!
It’s Sunday, which means it’s time to share our Fantastic Fives! This week we’re exploring this year’s Wyrd and Wonder theme of forest fantasy – but what does that even mean?
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?
Welcome to the first of our Wyrd And Wonder read-alongs! This year, we’ve got two forest fantasy picks (of course!): Guy Gavriel Kay’s epic portal fantasy The Summer Tree and Holly Black’s faerie fantasy The Darkest Part Of The Forest. Today, we’re starting discussion of The Summer Tree…
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.
Welcome to our fifth annual Wyrd and Wonder! Your five Wyrd and Wonderful co-hosts will be sharing our Fantastic Fives each Sunday through May, with a different theme each week. To start the month, I’m looking at my top five fantasy reads since last Wyrd and Wonder.
May is here, marking the start of our fifth annual celebration of all things fantastic! Wyrd and Wonder means raving about our favourite fantasy books, yelling about movies and tv shows, sharing the games that light our fires, seeking out new authors and making new friends. Sure, we read fantasy all year round – but in May we do it together.
It’s just under a month to our annual celebration of the fantastic: Wyrd and Wonder is back this May for another month of chat, reviews, challenges and more with an amazing party of like-minded readers. For our fifth birthday, your hosts have been devising even more fun ways to celebrate our favourite genre – come see what we are planning…
After much deliberation and a sudden brainwave, I am delighted to announce that for this year’s Wyrd and Wonder sign-up giveaway I shall be giving away not one, not two but three books (a whole trilogy in fact) that I absolutely adore and that has a (slightly horrific) twist on our forest fantasy theme.
Our annual celebration of all things fantasy is back this May, and your Wyrd and Wonder hosts have been concocting ideas to tantalise you with. If you’re looking for inspiration and/or want to join in with some group fun, come see what we are planning…
