#WyrdandWonder Book Bingo Recs

For our lovely Wyrd and Wonder that is currently on going Imyril has created a book bingo card. A card with prompts that you can tick of the books you read to during this event.

  1. Love the recs! Does the pegasus/dragon etc have to be on tbe cover or can they be a main character – like Eragon’ s Saphira or Temeraire?

    1. Technically on the cover but if you want to make it count we aren’t going to stop you 😀 Plus there are likely going to be editions of the book with a dragon or unicorn on the cover if they are the MC. 😉


  2. Oh, nice, you’re doing the book bingo! Those are some amazing recs, and I’m bookmarking your post. And I hope you try out The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms — it’s one of my all-time favorite SFF books. 🙂

  3. Zo handig om er ineens ook enkele tips bij te vermelden. Het is dat ik momenteel geen leesuitdagingen doe anders wist ik meteen waar ik kon komen kijken indien ik voor een specifiek prompt geen titel kon bedenken.
