Wyrd and Wonder header

This post is inspired by Maddalena from Space and Sorcery who chose to describe some of her favourite novels in 5 words!

Here I give you 10 random novels and the first 5 words that come to my mind to describe them!

The Malazan Book of the Fallen / Steven Erikson

Big Swords, Fireballs and Whinging



The Fate of the Tearling / Erika Johansen

How to ruin an ending



The Wheel of Time / Robert Jordan

Epicness, Magic, Braids and buttons



Fool’s Errand / Robin Hobb

All the feels and tears

fool's errand


The Winds of Winter / George R. R. Martin

I think I can do this in 3 words!

Keep on Dreaming!



Words of Radiance / Brandon Sanderson

Kaladin, magic battles, awesomeness, innovations!



The Name of the Wind / Patrick Rothfuss

Magic school, music, secrets, struggles



The Way of Shadows / Brent Weeks

Kylar sucks. Blint freaking rocks.



Dune / Frank Herbert

Spice, Sandworms, clever Paul, Feyd-Rautha



The Outsider / Stephen King

That Ending Is Actually OK!



  1. Oh, I love the idea of this! And I always love to see more fantasy posts. 😉 I really need to read The Way of Shadows still, and I have no idea what your five words mean, but they made me giggle. I look forward to meeting these characters now. Definitely need to get to Words of Radiance, too!
    Here’s my TTT post.
