  1. I just found out about Wyrd & Wonder recently! I always say that I love fantasy books, but I never read enough of them. My challenge for this month will be to read some of the fantasy books I bought because they were so hyped up. Hopefully they live up to my expectations!

  2. I’m so excited for this event! And me too: I usually have a hard time keeping up with reading/blogging events, but I’ll try my best with this one.
    I’m also hosting a giveaway for it. 😀

  3. Lovely giveaway. For Wyrd and Wonder if read A Brightness Long Ago which was amazing and my first Guy Gavriel Kay book and also finished the Winnowing Flame trilogy by Jen Williams which I highly recommend.
    I’ve also been hosting the Friday Face Off which for the month of May has been fantasy themes.
    Lynn 😀

    • I need to get round to A Brightness Long Ago! Though I’m actually behind on GGK and haven’t read his last book either. Eek!
