Wyrd and Wonder is in its fifth year and is hosted by Imyril (There Is Always Room for One More), Lisa (Dear Geek), Jorie (Jorie Loves a Story), Ariana (The Book Nook), and Annemieke (A Dance with Books).

Yesterday was the official start of Wyrd & Wonder. Because I dislike posting more than once a day on my blog and I still want to participate in the Fantastic Five, I’ve decided to do most of my posting for the event on Instagram. (Click here to follow me on Instagram .)

Fantasy has long been my most favorite genre of reading, especially when there’s romance involved. I don’t read as much fantasy as I’d like to, though, because I also love other genres and there are just too many books and not enough time to get to them all. I’m super excited to participate in Wyrd & Wonder so I can actually focus on fantasy for the whole month of May!

Wyrd & Wonder TBR

I have five books on my TBR for Wyrd & Wonder. I’m going to participate in both read-alongs: THE SUMMER TREE by Guy Gavriel Kay and THE DARKEST PART OF THE FOREST by Holly Black. I want to read CARVE THE MARK by Veronica Roth as it’s my IRL book club’s May pick. Serendipitous, no? I picked DARLING GIRL as my book for Book of the Month because I thought it would fit the Wyrd & Wonder theme. And, finally, I’ll read THE MAGICIAN’S NEPHEW by CS Lewis, which is this month’s installment for the Narniathon21.

Are you participating in Wyrd & Wonder? If so, what books are you planning to read this month?

Sunday Post and Sunday Salon are blog news memes hosted at Caffeinated Reviewer and Reader Buzz, respectively. It’s a chance to share news, recap the past week on your blog, and showcase books and other things.

I’m feeling a bit nervous because I have my Japanese written final tomorrow and my trig final on Tuesday. Wish me luck! I’m also feeling really happy and relieved. My ex-friend and I talked this week and we settled our differences. We’re good now!


I blogged quite a bit this past week. This next week’s going to be just as busy. This week on the blog:


I finished reading STALKING JACK THE RIPPER by Kerri Maniscalco last Sunday evening (review link above). I finished reading DEAR EMMIE BLUE by Lia Louis yesterday during the readathon. I also read and finished THE HORSE AND HIS BOY by CS Lewis during the readathon.

Today’s the first of May and the start of Wyrd & Wonder the Fifth. I’m joining both monthly read-alongs for THE SUMMER TREE by Guy Gavriel Kay and THE DARKEST PART OF THE FOREST by Holly Black. I’m very excited! I haven’t participated in a read-along in years! I’ll also be reading other books for May.


One of my friends sent me the song I’ve been listening to this week about a month ago. It’s called “You Say” by Lauren Daigle. The first time I listened to it, I knew I needed to hear its message.


Corey and I finally started watching Moon Knight on Disney+. It’s such an interesting concept and Oscar Isaac is killing it in the acting department.


I loved spending a few hours of the readathon yesterday with my friends. We went out to eat for lunch and then snuggled up in blankets and lounged around in comfy chairs reading for about four or five hours. It was a lot of fun and leveled up our readathon.


I want to figure out my meds so I don’t always feel so tired. I take quite a few mood stabilizers that do great things for my mood and horrific things to the rest of my body. I’m constantly fighting sleepiness. It’s really hard for me to exercise because I have no energy and my appetite’s all out of whack. Just once, I’d like to have the energy and stamina to stick to something that’ll in turn help me feel better.


I need to thank my classmate who told me about the ACT dry mouth lozenges. One of my medications is giving me dry mouth something fierce. When I was at a school event last week, she told me her dad uses the lozenges. I got some this week and they’ve helped so much.

How was your week? Anything exciting happen?
