Wyrd and Wonder is a month-long fantasy blog celebration hosted by Lisa, Jorie, and Imyril! I’ve followed for the last two years, but I decided to participate this year!
I’m trying to read more of my own books while on lockdown because I have so many unread. I will obviously read others than this, but here are the three books I really want to get to this month, including the readalong!
- Daughter of the Forest – Juliet Marillier :: Marillier recently put out another book (The Harp of Kings) and this reminded me of Daughter of the Forest that I devoured as a teenager because I wanted to read everything fairy tales and retellings. I’ve seen it pop up on bookstagram over the last few months, and now is the perfect time to read it!
- The Goblin Emperor – Katherine Addison :: I bought this a year and a half ago because it was getting a new cover and I liked this one better and I wasn’t sure if the bookstore where I worked would stock this mass market size after the (more expensive) trade, but I obviously still haven’t read it. I think Addison is releasing a new one this year or next, and I’ve also seen this one going around bookstagram and various online readalongs (including this one!)!
- The Queen of Blood – Sarah Beth Durst :: This is another one that I bought the whole series of based off of someone’s recommendation but never got around to it until seeing it read by someone I follow on social media. Now is the best time to binge read a series, so I’m looking forward to getting to this one!
Have you read any of these? Let me know what you’re reading this month!

Hello! Please to meet you! I am excited to hear your thoughts on these titles. They all sound good! By the way, your blog is gorgeous.
Hello! Thank you for visiting! I hope to get reviews up for them soon. I was entirely sidetracked by life in May!
I’m really excited to start reading The Goblin Emperor!
I am too! I am still reading it because I got completely sidetracked in May, but it’s so interesting! What did you think of it?
Hi Meg, I found your blog while browsing #WyrdAndWonder on Twitter 🙂 I haven’t read any of these books but they’re all on my TBR. Hope you enjoy them! I’ve just started The Binding by Bridget Collins as my Wyrd & Wonder read.
How did you like The Binding? I’ve had that from the library since before quarantine, and I’m really looking forward to reading it!
Well, it was quite different than what I expected/hoped for! Less fantasy, more romance. But if you are into that, I think you will enjoy it. 🙂
