Follow Friday

Follow Friday is hosted by Mickey at Parajunkee's View.

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

My answer: Oh, that's an easy question! I have two answers for this one. First off, my favourite fairy tale would have to be the story of The Little Mermaid. When I was a kid, I was completely obsessed with the story because of my love of the ocean. Plus I always wanted to be a mermaid - all the freedom it had to offer. In my dreams, right? hehe. As for what's my favourite story that revolves around the fae, it would have to be Melissa Marr's Wicked Lovely series which is probably the best fae YA series I've read. But I also love Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series, not to mention her characters Ash and Puck! ;)

So, what's your favourite fairy tale?

Do you also have a favourite fae story?

Have an awesome weekend you guys!

  11. The Little Mermaid is one of my favorites too! I love both the happy Disney version and the morbid original version.

  12. Old follower. You know I haven't seen many Disney movies but the original fairy tale was so poignant and the statue in COpenhagen (I think) has always seemed lovely.http://fangswandsandfairydust.com
