This will be my third year of Wyrd & Wonder! During May I’m going to celebrate all things fantasy: from book and movies to podcasts. Wyrd & Wonder is a challenge hosted by Imryl from One More, Lisa of Dear Geek Place and Jorie from Jorie Loves A Story.
There’s a list of prompts we can use. I especially like that we are challenged to focus on fantasy from around the world! You can definitively expect a post from me about fantasy inspired by non-European cultures. I also have some reading goals. Here are the books I hope to read:
The Bone Witch trilogy by Rin Chupeco
I read the first part two years ago. In my opinion the pacing was a bit too slow, but the world building was amazing. Wyrd & Wonder seemed a good opportunity to continue the trilogy. I already have The Heart Forger at home. If I like it I will also buy The Shadowglass.
Dragon Bike: Fantastical Stories of Bicycling, Feminism, & Dragons edited by Elly Blue
Bikes in Space is a short story collection about feminism and bicycles. The idea to combine these things in a story is really creative and original. So I was immediately curious when I heard about the Bike in Spaces series! Most books in the series are science fiction, but the book I’m going to read this month is of course fantasy.
