May 2020 TBR: It’s Wyrd And Wonder

ww2020-schedule-header-e1582553375586Every May I try to participate in Wyrd and Wonder, a month long readathon hosted by Lisa of Dear Geek Place, imyril of There’s Always Room for One More, and Jorie of Jorie Loves a Story. And every May I am only partly successful. I am kind of assuming this year will be no different (given that I will be giving birth at some point in May) but I still couldn’t not participate because I like the sense of community so much.

I am not even going to try to give myself a structured TBR but rather wanted to show you (and myself if I am being honest) some of the options I have. I will surely concentrate more on the romance side of fantasy because this is what I gravitate towards when my life is stressful.

I want to start reading Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter series again; I still prefer her Psy-Changeling Series, but her writing and her character work are just always so very impeccable. I also weirdly have two books in the middle of the Psy-Changeling series unread and I am hoping to finally finish those before the next book in the series comes out later this year.

I will also catch up on the Hidden Legacy series in preparation for the upcoming release. I just adore Ilona Andrews’ writing, it is fast-paced and impeccably structured, often funny but always exciting, with interesting familial relationships – and I adore how they weave their romances into plots I would like even without it.

Except for those three series, here are a few more fantasy novels that are languishing unread on my shelves, in no particular order:

I will pick up whatever I feel like and hopefully that will translate into reading a few books that have been on my shelves for way too long. I am also currently reading N. K. Jemisin’s incredible The City We Became – which I am adoring as was to be expected.

  1. I’m actually thinking of reading Jade City too, although it isn’t mentioned in my kick off post. Looks like you have plenty of good options!


  2. I hope you have a great reading month! So many of these are on my TBR as well!



  3. Oooh so many wonderful books! I cannot wait to see what you think of The Ten Thousand Doors of January, I really enjoyed it. Same for Call Down the Hawk. And I really want to read everything else you listed, especially Jade City. I hope you have a great reading month!

    1. I think I will try to prioritize Call Down the Hawk, just so that I can at least contribute a little bit to our alternative WP longlist discussion.


    1. I have heard such good things about The Ninth Rain! I really hope to get to it soon.
      I read the beginning of Ten Thousand Doors of January some time last year but found it too whimsical then for my reading mood – but so many people love it so completely that I really want to try again!

  4. I’m also participating in Wyrd & Wonder but my TBR was limited by which ebooks I could get in time from the library. The Ninth Rain was one I considered – unfortunately my library doesn’t have a digital copy. It looks like you have lots of good titles to choose from! I have mixed feelings about ACoL, but I thought it was plenty entertaining while I was reading it.


  5. The Empire of Sand is a great pic if you’re looking for romance. Well, it’s kinda darker than the average (limited) romance I’ve read, but the slow-relationship the two characters build based on what little consent they can wrestle, is pretty amazing.
