We’re going on an adventure! || Wyrd & Wonder 2021 TBR

It’s been so long since I took part in any readathon or reading challenge, that when I found out about this entire new world of fantasy lovers, Wyrd and Wonder, I signed up right away! It runs throughout the month of May, and there is like a prompt for every day of the month. What I liked the most about this is that there are no hard and fast rules to this – we can respond to the prompt with a photo, a blog post, anything we want. (psst! As far as I know, sign ups are open throughout the month, so it is not too late to join in! Click HERE to see the intro post, where you will find everything you need to know!)

Obviously I will be reading only fantasy this month, and most of my blog posts will also be centered around the same. Here is how my planned TBR looks like.

(from top left to bottom right)

  • The Girl Who Drank The Moon by Kelly Barnhill
  • Orphans of the Tide by Struan Murray
  • The Flame of Olympus by Kate O’Hearn (The Wyrd and Wonder mascot this year is a pegasus, so how can I not read this?)
  • The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan
  • Supernova by Marissa Meyer
  • The Shadow Watch by S.A. Klopfenstein

Buddy-read call out!

I would love to buddy read any of these books with you guys! So if any of them is on your TBR as well, let me know in the comments so we can arrange a buddy-read!!


Before ending this post, I would like to inform you that I will not be following my regular posting schedule in May. There are two reasons for this – 1) because I will be following the respective dates of the prompts from Wyrd & Wonder and 2) since I am comparatively less busy with other stuff this month, I hope to post more frequently than my regular schedule permits. However, I will most probably be back to following my schedule from June.

Are any of these books on your TBR? Are you taking part in any readathon/ reading challenge in May? Would you like to suggest me ideas for different discussion posts, lists, etc related to fantasy that I can do this month? Let me know in the comments! See you there!!

  1. The girl who drank the moon is one of my favourite middle-grade reads! I think just about anyone will *love* it! The lost hero (and the entire HoO series) is an awesome series for fans of the original Percy Jackson series! have you read that one? the Renegades trilogy is top on my tbr (just after king of scars because the shadow and bone Netflix series had me fangirling for days! I needed more Grisha verse!

    Great post!

    • Yes, I have read the original Percy Jackson series! (tho it was quite long ago and I don’t remember half of the things😅) and HoO has been on my TBR ever since but I never really got around to reading it.
      Thanks for dropping by, Maya!!

  2. Woop woop, welcome to the party! You’re right – sign up never closes, because the more people chatting fantasy with us the better, right? (also given my whole blog is There’s Always Room For One More what kind of monster would I be to close sign-up before the month was over?)

    Looking forward to your posts 😀

  3. Hallo, Hallo Rachel,

    Gosh. Normally I’d jump at the chance to do a buddy-read with you but tbh I have such ambitious goals this Wyrd And Wonder I’m plumb out of free time to coordinate it. I have a high yield of stories I’m reading and listening on audiobook this month whilst participating in our group RAL (the first year where I could!) and trying to knock out the prompts (in creatively different ways!) as well as see if any of the stories I’m reading might score me bingo card squares!! I’m just super grateful you’ve found us and have joined our community of Fantasy adventurers!

    I’ll have to keep my eyes out on your posts and if you post reviews for these novels – several caught my eye. Esp the one about Pegasus!! If you swing by my blog you’ll find my Year 4 Intro where I disclose some of the stories I’m reading as well as two Middle Grade Fantasy novels: “Dalya and the Magic Ink Bottle” and “The Marvelwood Magicians” — both were wickedly brilliant and the Marvelwoods were an audiobook! I loved the narrator in case you love seeking those out yourself.

    Welcome, welcome and here’s to a wicked wonderful May!

  4. Hallo Rachel,

    A quick follow-up — as I missed mentioning this on my first visit – when you use the graphics Imyril created for Wyrd And Wonder you need to include an attribution for them? You’ll find this on the banners page on her blog as well as at the footer of her posts where she uses the banners themselves. We appreciate your understanding.
