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:
