Best Laid Plans: It’s Time For Wyrd & Wonder! (April Wrap Up & May TBR)

May Plans

Fantastical Mood Reading for Wyrd & Wonder

The magic portal artwork for the event – the image on top of this post – is done by Tithi Luadthong. 

Last year I participated in Wyrd & Wonder for the first time. I met some of my favorite people in the fantasy community and am totally excited to see everyone’s posts again and try another read-along.  The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco has been on my TBR since someone said “horse familiar”, so I’m willing to give it a shot. I’m definitely going to focus on fantasy and let my mood guide me through my endless TBR.


I can’t spoil it since the finals announcement hasn’t been made, but I’ll read one spsfc finalist this month for sure


I’ve got nothing in my ARC pile and am super proud of holding a 100% NetGalley feedback ratio. I can truly mood read for once ♥️


April Wrap Up

The spsfc

The SPSFC semifinalist round is officially complete. I thoroughly enjoyed 3 out of 6 of our semifinalist books so that’s something. The team’s wrap up post can be found here

Books read

I finished 14 books in April! Two were short but still, 14 is amazing for me.

Here are my reads and ratings. I haven’t talked about the Splintered series yet or A King’s Bargain, but all of the others are here on the blog. My absolute favorite has to be The Last Gifts of the Universe by Rory August, and Deadlock by James Byrne is a close second.

There was one DNF, Intelligence Block, from the SPSFC reading. If you are entering a writing competition you need to edit or at bare minimum, proof read your book. At this point in my life my time is both valuable and limited 🤷‍♀️

Haul and unhaul:

I spent less than 50$ on books in April and most were audiobooks or ebooks from the Indie April sale. I only bought one physical book, the Nick Adams Stories collection by Hemingway

I unhauled a ridiculous 40 books this month! Now I’ve only got about 8 books that don’t fit on my shelves and things are looking a lot neater around here. I’m proud of that too! Here is the unhaul (some found homes already) and the shelves afterwards!

On the blog:

Stats and interaction on new posts were slightly down but this was the second highest in overall visitors and views this month. I miss having popular posts but old content is making up for it 🤷‍♀️

There were multiple reviews, top ten lists, two excellent guest posts on dystopia and fantasy, and one new episode of the Sunday Brunch Series.

Overall: not a bad month. May is for fun! What’s your upcoming month looking like?
