Five Books I’ve Read Since the Last #WyrdandWonder

Wyrd and Wonder has started. It is the first day.

And this year every Sunday we, the team of Wyd and Wonder, will be bringing you a top 5 lists. We have 5 Sundays and 5 Topics. You are welcome to join in with us but you don’t have to post on the Sunday like us. I can’t wait to see what your answers are going to be.

Today our topic is Five Books We’ve Read Since the Last Wyrd and Wonder or Five Books You Read During a Previous Wyrd and Wonder.

I’ve decided to go for five books I’ve read since the last Wyrd and Wonder. For Sci-Fi Month I almost always start the event month with a topic like this to give some more attention to the SF I’ve read throughout the year. But with fantasy for Wyrd and Wonder I’ve never really done that. I guess that is because I read so much fantasy to start with and listing them all is a lot of work. But it was fun to pick out a few for today’s post.

The Witness for the Dead by Katherine Addison

After the last Wyrd and Wonder I read The Witness for the Dead. The Goblin Emperor is one of the books we once read as a readalong during Wyrd and Wonder and The Witness for the Dead is a companion novel. Set in the same world with one of the side characters. I really enjoyed The Goblin Emperor and I ended up loving The Witness for the Dead. Celehar was such a joy to follow.

A Marvellous Light by Freya Marske

This was such a fun period m/m romance with a fantasy backdrop. I suspect that if you liked Zen Cho’s Sorcerer to the Crown you will like this as well.

Under the Whispering Door by T.J. Klune

I had not read anything by T.J. Klune before reading this after life redemption story that was so heartfelt. But I shall be picking up more Klune books

A Master of Djinn by P. Djeli Clark

This is probably one of my favorite fantasy worlds at the moment. The setting of 1912 Cairo with Djinn is such an appealing world to me. I really can’t wait to read more in this world (I’ve read the novella’s already).

The World of the Others by Anne Bishop

Now I am kind of cheating here since The World of the Others has 3 books. But I did read them all at the start of the year. I actually reread the first two and then read the third when it came out. These books are set in the same world as Anne Bishops The Others series. And it is fun to see other places and characters in these books.

  1. A Marvellous Light will most likely be on my top 10 list for this year. It’s so, so good. TJ Klune is a fantastic author — I recommend House in the Cerulean Sea as a follow up!
