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?

I love questions that make me dig deep! I haven't thought about fairy tales in a while and I don't have a favorite per se, but after thinking about it for a while, I'd have to say my top three are: The Emperor's New Clothes, The Princess and the Pea, and Rumpelstiltskin.

I've read a lot of books that have fairies in them, but only one series that had a fairy as the central character: The Dulce O'Neil series by H.P. Mallory. While I loved the first two books in the series and would absolutely recommend them for a light summer read, it would probably be premature to call them my favorite since I have no good basis for comparison. It seems I'll have to get some good fae books on my TBR list!

Happy Friday!

  5. My favorite fairy tale would be The Wild Swans by Hans Christian Andersen. But my favorite tale about fairies? Peter Pan, although there's only Tinker Bell who's ever present there.
