Follow Friday #10



Follow Friday is a weekly book meme hosted at Parajunkee's View!
This weeks question is:


Q. In light of the Summer Solstice. Also known as Midsummer...let's talk about fairies. What is your favorite fairy tale or story that revolves around the fae?


My favourite fairytale goes to Peter Pan, i'm a kid at heart. So the idea of Neverland and not having to grow up is pretty appealing.

My favourite book series about the fae would be Holly Black's The Modern Faerie Tales's series, there so dark and gritty. You really get to experience the deceptive and dangerous side of the fae. Not all glitter and gauzy wings after all!

  5. Peter Pan was going to be my pick until I remembered Cinderella. Tinkerbell is such a spunky fairy!

  12. Hi there! New follower here and I have to say that your blog is so gorgeous! I love the haunting flowery theme -- so pretty :)

    I love Peter Pan too! Tinkerbell is so cute as a fuming little fairy, and I agree with you when you say that it'd be cool to grow up in Neverland.

    But I've actually never picked up any of Holly's books other than the Curse Workers series (which I love). Is Tithe good? I've heard so many good things about it. I'll be sure to add it to my growing TBR pile! I just love faeries :)

    Hope you have an awesome weekend!
