Week 1: Chapters 1-6Week 2: Chapters 7-11 I can't believe we've already finished The Wandering Fire, book two in the Fionavar Tapestry by Guy Gavriel Kay!

The Darkest Part of the Forest Readalong: Week Four

It's been a weird last week of May, so I'm getting to this later than I would like, but at last I am able to sit down and discuss my final thoughts on Holly Black's The Darkest Part of the Forest, which was one of our readalong titles for this year's Wyrd and Wonder! This week the questions were provided by Lisa at Dear Geek Place, who also hosted the readalong, and thank you so much for a great time! In this final section, all the showdowns happen, so let's get going, and please beware of spoilers!

This week, everything is happening, so please beware of spoilers going forward. Thank you to the magnificent Mayri the Bookforager for the closing questions - let's get to it!

Another week has gone past, and you're all still killing it with your photos for this year's prompts! Annemieke and I are very excited to share some of those. Last week, I looked at Mythic, Undergods, and Weapons while Annemieke showed off your Best Laid Plans and 5 Star Fantasy Reads. Today you can find a showcase of #ShelfieSunday, Dark, and Bite-Sized Delights over at A Dance With Books while I look at your Current Reads and Fantasy Landscapes. Let's go!

Eurovision Outfits as Fantasy Book Covers

Some might say Eurovision is over for the year, but the truth is, Eurovision is never over! If you haven't guessed, I'm a big fan, and because May is both the month of this fantastical music contest AND the bookish Wyrd and Wonder, I thought I'd mash the two together to create something weird and wonderful (pun intended). The premise is simple: any outfits/stage looks that took my fancy, whether during the premier, or the show itself, paired with a fantasy book cover I think matches its colours and vibes.

Author Chat: Lucy Holland

Sistersong is a lyrical, mythical story based on the folk ballad, The Two Sisters, and set in and around the hold of a great chief in the Dark Ages of Britain. I did review this book last year, and will provide a blurb at the end of this article, but today I wanted to talk to Lucy about her inspirations and writing process, especially since a follow-up book is in the works! So welcome, Lucy Holland, to the Book Nook.
