Daily Prompts

As per usual there will be a daily prompts list. You can use these as a photo challenge as will we over on instagram. But you can also use these prompts to post a blog posts with or as some have done in the past, use it as a kind of booktag. There is no right or wrong here. You can find more explanation per prompt in the 2022 master list. But mostly these are all very wide open in interpretation.

Weekly Top Fives

New are the weekly top fives! We have 5 Sundays in May and since W&W exists 5 years this May we might as well celebrate with an extra bang.

Every Sunday the hosts will be posting their response to the prompts. Everyone joining in can also post on Sunday or any other day of the week. We’re sticking to Sunday because that is easier on us but post on whatever day works for you if you want to join in on the fun!

Readalongs

It wouldn’t be Wyrd and Wonder without one of our hosts, hosting a readalong. This year (for now anyway) there will be 2 readalongs. Both books will work great with our Forest Fantasy theme.

Imyril will be doing a readalong for The Summer Tree by Guy Gavriel Kay.
Lisa will be doing a readalong for The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black.

More information on both readalongs will be posted in April!

Master Schedule

And the trusty master schedule is back! You can find it here. If you are already planning ahead of time don’t hesitate to let us know through the master schedule. And don’t forget to drop in your (pre-scheduled) link so we can come and visit you!

    1. Yeay. Absolutely not nessecary to be on instagram. And if you find the daily prompts interesting you can totally do it as a kind of book tag. Or maybe even just the one prompt. We are wide open for whatever way the things we offer will be interpreted 😀
