The most magical month of the year is here, and that means: Wyrd & Wonder! Wherein a whole bunch of us blog about the fantastical (even more than we usually do!) Anyone and everyone is welcome to join in; just check out the link for the rundown on all you need to know!
This year’s theme is MAGIC, which means I am THE MOST EXCITED! Magic is at the heart of Fantasy, and the heart of magic, imo, is wonder – even terrifying, deadly magic still makes you catch your breath; even when it’s ugly, magic is the act of rewriting reality, and what can be more wondrous than that? I can’t wait to see what everyone does with this theme, and I hope I can do it justice myself.
I’m not promising to stick religiously to this year’s prompts, but I’m more than happy to dive into my tbr for prompt #1 – although who knows what I’ll actually end up reading???
I have a number of ARCs to be reading, of course, but these are, I think, the ones that best fit Wyrd & Wonder’s theme this year! Plant magic, otherworlds, void-magic, and books of spells respectively – I don’t see how I can go wrong with these!
Aka, a small sampling of books I already own and really need to read – Wyrd & Wonder should be the perfect time for these!
Exactly what it sounds like; books I’ve read before and want to read again! Particularly The Map and the Territory; I’ve been trying and failing to review it since DECEMBER, and I’m hoping a reread will help me put its amazingness into words! (Amazingness is totally a word, hush!)
Books releasing this month that I cannot WAIT to get my hands on! (And I assure you, the only reason Martha Wells’ Witch King isn’t here is that I’m reading it now – and am just about to finish it!)
Have I bitten off more than I can chew??? Almost certainly! But isn’t that half the fun? And I’m sure at least a few of the things I’ll end up reading will be completely unexpected surprises…which is definitely the other half of the fun!
