Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It’s all about books, lists and sharing the love we have of both with our bookish friends. Today we’re enthusing about books that put a smile on our faces.
2020 has been characterised by book releases slipping down the months, but July has plenty in store to get excited about. If There’s Always Room For One More around here, these are books I want to make some room for…
Happy tenth birthday to Top Ten Tuesday, helping us share lists about books and bookish things every week since 2010! The much-loved meme was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week we get to celebrate with any topic we choose, so I’d like to take this opportunity to ding the bell for that misunderstood beastie: the 3 star review.
My reading has been all over the place this year – I read nearly as many pages in February as I did in March and April put together – so committing to a reading challenge is arguably a daft idea. But I can never resist Cathy’s call for 20 Books of Summer, and this year is no different!
As the month ended, the adventurers gathered in the inn once more to share their exploits. It had been an epic season of Wyrd and Wonder, made delightful by friends well-met and tales well-told.

I was determined to catch up on reviews, but it’s much too hard at the moment so I’m doing a review tag instead. The 5 Star Books In 5 Words tag (originally created by Matthew Sciarappa) has been a huge fave this Wyrd and Wonder, so about time I joined in, right?
It’s time to see what bookish delights are heading our way in June. If you’re hoping to extend your Wyrd and Wonder adventures, I’m pleased to say June has you well and truly covered! There’s Always Room For One More as we say around here – these are books I want to make some room for…
Can you believe how far our Wyrd and Wonder journey has taken us? What a few weeks it’s been – this fourth round-up of your adventures is as epic as any that have gone before! Before we tackle the last week, let’s take a moment to take a look back at the chatter along the road.
Week after week, the adventurers sent word back of their travels: venturing into uncharted subgenres, updates to follow. Taking tea with dragons, see you next week. Beset by TBRs, send aid! That last was the most common, but the TBRs proved friendly as a rule – just given to multiplying at alarming rates.
S A Chakraborty burst onto the scene with The City of Brass, an immersive fantasy of secret birthrights, simmering passions and social upheaval. With Empire of Gold hitting the shelves next month, if you haven’t read the Daevabad books yet let me tell you why you should…
