Wyrd & Wonder Quest Log: Week the Last

Well, we’ve come to the end of the road for another year’s adventure, which means it’s time for one last round-up of your goods and treasure! This week I’m gathering your lists and random loot, as well as rounding up posts for The Darkest Part of the Forest Readalong. Let’s look it over…


Fantastic Fives

The team at The Fantasy Hive gave us a final pair of Monday Top Fives, featuring ‘single-serve fantasies’ (short fiction) and subgenres;

Mervi at Mervi’s Book Reviews also gave us a list of her favourite single-serves, as did Peat Long and Beth at Beth’s Bookish Thoughts;

Subgenres also got some list love from: Mug Full of Books | Foxes and Fairy Tales | A Dance With Books | BookWyrm Knits | Bookforager | Based on a True Story | There’s Always Room For One More | Zezee With Books | Word Wilderness


Elsewhere in the lists:

Lynn at Lynn’s Books gave us some of her favourite opening lines for Top Ten Tuesday;

Natalie at Too Short To Read shared some of the books she still needs to read (age-old woe!) as well as her top ten comfort reads;

Sahi at My World of Books took us through an A-Z of her TBR pile;

Annemieke at A Dance With Books shared five quotes from foresty books;

Tammy at Books, Bones & Buffy brought us ten upcoming adult fantasies to get excited about;

Lauren at Always Me shared her adaptation wish-list for Top Ten Tuesday, and got excited for some upcoming releases;

Peyton at Word Wilderness listed 10 cool fantasy settings;

Sia at Every Book A Doorway got excited (again!) for some cool magic systems, as well as cool magical abilities;

And finally, Annemieke also gave us a round-up of our Fantastic Fives in her Top 5 Sunday showcase.

And that’s it for the final quest log – but don’t forget to check out imyril’s log, where she’s gathered your reviews, interviews, wrap-up posts and more!

It will have been said by now but I want to say it myself: thank you, each and every adventurer who took part this year. Whether you’re a newbie or a veteran, we appreciate all of you for your support, enthusiasm and creativity! You all helped to make our fifth year a really special one.

I also want to thank my fellow co-hosts – imyril, Jorie, Ariana and Annemieke for being absolute superstars, especially considering that I know we all had a bumpy ride over the last month. We make a good team!

So, we end the tale here – but mark your calendars for October 19-31, when we’ll be back with our Spooktastic Reads 13 day mini-event for Halloween! And if you’re a sci-fi fan as well, there will be another voyage of the starship Sci-Fi Month in November!

See you then…
