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?

I’d never heard of Wyrd and Wonder until I saw information about it on Curiosity Killed the Bookworm last Friday. I decided to look more into it because it sounded like an event I might enjoy.

This is Wyrd and Wonder’s fifth year and it’s 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). This is what Imyril says about the event on her blog:

Wyrd and Wonder is an annual geek-out of like-minded adventurers as we celebrate the fantastic on our blogs and social media feeds through May. Come share your enthusiasm and recommendations (book bags of holding highly recommended) with an amazing group of other fantasy fans. We’ll be reading and reviewing books, talking about movies and tv shows, playing games and sharing our thoughts on anything vaguely fantasy-related through blog posts, bookstagrams, booktoks, booktubes, Litsy posts and tweets galore – all connected by the #wyrdandwonder hashtag.

My last test for my current school semester is on May 2, which is perfect timing. I thought it might be fun to participate in Wyrd and Wonder since fantasy is my favorite genre.

I’m looking forward to the book bingo, readalongs, blog posts, and bookstagrams. If you’re curious about the event or want to sign up, check out any one of the five hosts’ blogs.

Are you going to participate in Wyrd & Wonder? Are you veteran or will this be your first time?
