Event Klaxon : Wyrd & Wonder #WyrdAndWonder

May is upon us and how that happened so quickly I will never know but it makes me happy because it heralds in a month of celebration of all things fantasy.  Wyrd & Wonder is back for it’s third year.

Wyrd & Wonder is the sort of event that has no rules.  You can join in as little or as much as you like.  You can discuss books, film, games, characters, anything to be honest (although fantasy is the name of the game).  It’s great to join in and chat, share the enthusiasm with others and make friends.

If you want more details look here and also check our the wonderful hosts of the event:  imyrilLisa and Jorie.

I would give a quick mention to the readalong which I’m really excited about, it’s a book I’ve wanted to read for ages and this gives me the perfect opportunity.  For more information check out Lisa’s blog (link above).

Anyway, without further ado, let’s have a little list of the books I’m hoping to read this month because I love books and I love lists so why deny myself a double whammy.  I’ve got rather an ambitious list, a combination of catching up with books I intended to read much sooner and a few review books that if I can sneak in early will help me steal a march on June.

  1. The Goblin Emperor  by Katherine Addison – this is the readalone book.
  2. Night Of The Dragon by Julie Kagawa
  3. Stormsong by C. L. Polk
  4. Survivors by G X Todd
  5. The Girl with No Faceby M.H. Boroson
  6. The Obsidian Towerby Melissa Caruso
  7. The Court of Miracles by Kester Grant
  8. The Angel of the Crows by Katherine Addison
  9. Mexican Gothicby Silvia Moreno-Garcia

And just think, if I stick to plan I’ll be reading two Katherine Addison books this month – woot.

Finally, because I’m a cover lover, and kind of assume everyone is equally so, feast your eyes on these beauties:

    You are going to love Night of the Dragon. It is so good!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’ve read lots of positive reviews already and been really keen to pick it up but I had a lot of commitments and couldn’t get to it though.
      Lynn 😀

      • Tessa Pulyer

        I would definitely put it on you TBR. It truly is worth it 😊

    Wow, excellent list! Some of these are June releases so I doubt I’ll get to them in May, but I’m really excited for Wyrd and Wonder as well😁

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’ve been lucky tbh, I had a really crazy month of May but because of the current situation a lot of the books have been given later releases so I’m hopeful that I can catch up now.
      Lynn 😀

  3. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    YES! Let the fantasy fun begin. I’m hoping I’ll get to get a head start on June books too 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Well, I’ve had lots of May review dates put back which tbh is quite a relief because the last two months put me behind when my reading sort of crashed and burned!

    Can’t wait to read your thoughts on The Goblin Emperor. It’s one of those books I’ve been tempted by a couple of times then hesitated after seeing the long, unusual names and explanations at the beginning, then I’ll see amazing reviews and comments and come back around to thinking maybe I should give it a try 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      This is an audio book so perhaps that will help me with all the unusual names 😀

  5. Annemieke

    I just read Mexican Gothic and I really enjoyed it!

  6. maddalena@spaceandsorcery

    The new series by Melissa Caruso is one of my planned readings for this month as well, and of course I can’t ignore anything written by Silvia Moreno-Garcia… 🙂
    Happy Wyrd & Wonder!!

  7. maxinesobsessions

    Such a lovely looking pile of books. It looks like it is going to be a great reading month for you.

  8. imyril

    Hooray, you’re joining the read-along! I’m really looking forward to chatting about this one (almost as much as I’m looking forward to The Obsidian Tower and Mexican Gothic 😉

    • @lynnsbooks

      So many good books this month. I can’t wait to start, well, I’ve already started the Goblin Emperor.
      Lynn 😀

  9. Quest Log The First: the party gathers

    […] …as does Lynn of Lynn Reads […]

    Great pile of books! I haven’t read any of them but I’ve heard of them, especially the Goblin Emperor. I’m looking forward to you reviews.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Thanks – I’ve started the Goblin Emperor, which is something I’ve been looking forward to for some time and so far so good.
      Lynn 😀
