Posts from Earlier Wyrd and Wonder Editions | #WyrdandWonder

Tomorrow is the last day of Wyrd and Wonder. I’ll be posting the book bingo wrap up then. So I thought it would be a good idea to make me almost last post one where I look back at the previous years of Wyrd and Wonder and what I posted then. I was inspired by our lovely Jorie ❤

Wyrd and Wonder was created by our lovely Imyril, Lisa and Jorie back in 2018. And I seem to have been present for every year so far. I hope I can continue to do that for many years to come.
