Great Starts to Adult Fantasy If You Are New to the Genre // #wyrdandwonder

Some genres you just kind of roll into. Fantasy was that for me. Other genres scare you.  And other genres same very appealing but you just don’t know where to start.

Buying Full Series Before Reading the First Book: How Has That Been Working Out for Me?

Sometimes it is good to ask yourself why.  I’ve been asking myself why a lot at the end of 2018 with starting my mindfit therapy. Mostly why does this trigger me?
