It’s time for our party to gather, to make introductions and get reacquainted with old adventuring friends, and share the first round of our loot!
I may be late, but I am … some kind of wizard. Probably the weird trash variety. It’s May. That means it is officially time for Wyrd and Wonder – and the second of my two celebratory giveaways!
Hello, hello and welcome to what I’m choosing to think of as a Wyrd and Wonder 2021 pre-launch party! Perhaps it’s ambitious of me since I am generally not the strict planning sort, but I’ve cobbled together a TBR pile for this year’s fantasy extravaganza and was excited to share it. Oh, and there are prizes for participants. Let’s see what’s in my bag of goodies…
The drama is cranked up this week as our intrepid company arrives in La Serenissima. Phèdre finally discovers where Melisande has been hiding herself … and pays a heavy price for the knowledge. Let’s discuss Kushiel’s Chosen. This week’s discussion contains spoilers for chapters 31 through 44.
As Phèdre heads to La Serenissima in search of her answers, she gets a few surprises along the way – both at home and on the road. But what awaits her at her destination? Let’s discuss Kushiel’s Chosen. This week’s discussion contains spoilers for chapters 18 through 30.
The Wyrd and Wonder Read-along of the Kushiel novels by Jacqueline Carey returns! We are picking up Kushiel’s Chosen for a group read and some juicy Q&A action. This is a reread for me, but it’s been a while so a lot of my memories of this book are spotty at best. This will be interesting.
Well, we’ve reached the end of May, and thus the end of another wildly successful Wyrd and Wonder! Before I get all emotional, let’s take a look back over the final week of our celebration and see what chatty content got turned out!
In the final part of our readalong, the murderer is finally unmasked, and Edrehasivar’s reign begins to stabilise. And I spilled my feelings everywhere. Again. Let’s discuss The Goblin Emperor. Spoilers follow for chapter 27 through to the end.
This train is gathering steam this week, as certain parties make a very dangerous move – and pay for it. Meanwhile Maia is finding his feet as a politician as well as in his role as emperor, but will there be a cost to that? Let’s discuss The Goblin Emperor. Spoilers follow for chapters 18 through 26.
Our treasures and discoveries are still coming in as we start to look toward the end of the month, so let’s look over what our adventuring party has been reading this month!
