Follow Friday Question: 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?
A: My favorite classic fairy tale is Beauty and the Beast. I love the Hans Christian Anderson version and the Disney one, too. I think I really connect with stories about transformation- emotional and physically- because I always have hope that people can change for the better.
As for a modern fairy story- my fave is probably Tithe by Holly Black. It’s one of the first YA stories I’d ever read about fairies. I loved it immediately- it is dark and mysterious and romantic, and I ate it up!!
Upcoming: (either later tonight or tomorrow): Review of Red Glove by Holly Black! Hmm, Ms. Black is getting a lot of action on the blog lately…
