Progress Update: Wyrd and Wonder reading #WyrdandWonder

W&W

We’re half way into May and so today I’m giving an update of the books I’ve read so far for Wyrd and Wonder – details here (but in short W&W is a fantastic month long celebration of all things fantasy) and also looking at those books I’d like to fit in for the second half of the month.

1 The Shadow of the Gods by John Gwynne – okay, this was brilliant.  What a way to start the event.  I can’t recommend this book highly enough.  Please give it a go, I seriously.

2 Later by Stephen King – I listened to the audio version for this one.  I haven’t read a King book for a while and  although I haven’t written my review for this one yet I can say it will be favourable.  I really liked this story and was thoroughly gripped.

3 Ikessar Falcon by KS Villoso – I started this book a while ago and put it down.  Nothing to do with the book and all to do with my strange up and down reading mood.  Anyway, I decided to start it again and part read/part listened to it.  I really enjoyed it.  It’s a winning combination of action and character focus.  Review to follow soon.

4 The Blacktongue Thief by Christopher Buehlman.  My review for this will be up soon – I had so much fun with this book, literally laughed out loud on a number of occasions – much to the delight of the OH.

That’s my reading so far this month – and it’s been very good – so the second half has got a lot to live up to.  

Well, firstly, this month I hope to complete the second Discworld book that I’m buddy reading with the lovely Louise at Lousbookstuff.

And, here’s a little medley of books.  I probably won’t get to them all but maybe 5 or 6:

So, what you reading for the rest of the month.

    You’re way ahead of me, I think I’ve only read one fantasy book so far, lol. I just started The Shadow of the Gods and I hope to spend the weekend finishing it, its so good!

    I have been reading Villoso too, managed to finish it a few days back. It’s just one thing after another, relentless political obstacles. Enjoyed it but it made for rather heavy reading, and now I am looking for something feel-good and lighter. 😦

    I’m reading Later at the moment and so far so good so look forward to your thoughts on it 😊

    King’s “Later” was a good, intriguing story and – for King’s usual standards – quite a short read 🙂

    You read a lot of amazing books! I am very excited to read Villoso’s trilogy, I have amazing things about it! 🙂
