It is the 1st of May, which means a lot of things. It means one of my sister-in-laws is getting married today. It means that my brother in law is grousing about cutting the grass. It means a holiday on Monday back in the UK, although I’ll already be on holiday.
And here, it means the start of Wyrd & Wonder, the month long celebration of fantasy hosted by Imyril at One More, Lisa at Dear Geek Place, and Jorie at Jorie Loves a Story. For those unfamiliar with it, this welcome post by Imyril is a good introduction – there’s always room for one more blogger.
Now, many of us are starting the party by talking about our TBR lists and other plans for the month.
Which I think is a great idea except I have very little to say.
I will be joining the readalong of Andrea Stewart’s The Bone Shard Daughter. I’ve been looking forwards to this for a while and have an ARC and everything.
Speaking of ARCs, that reminds me of the colossal pile of books I have started and not finished. Most of the books from this post in February are still outstanding, and I’ve added a few more ARCs I haven’t started, and I’ve also started James Islington’s The Shadow of What Was Once Lost, Stephen Deas’ The Moonsteel Crown, Tade Thompson’s Rosewater, and CJ Cherryh’s The Well of Shiuan in the meantime along with a few others I may be forgetting.
I’m also considering – considering – starting Jacqueline Carey’s Banewreaker, some of T Frohock’s Los Nefilim, continuing with Michael McClung’s series that started with The Thief Who Pulled on Trouble’s Braids, maybe some Lindsay Buroker, probably some more Pratchett rereads, maybe a Fionavar Tapestry re-read, etc.etc.
In short, I have no idea what I’m doing. I will probably be returning to regular blogging here – I have a bunch semi-planned for this month – but life is about to get busy when I return from holiday so who knows for sure.
Still, the best way to blog is to build a routine, and this is the sound of me getting my toes back in the water. Here’s to great Wyrd & Wonder!
