Follow Friday & Blog hop (11)







Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View

This week's question is:

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 really like Hans Christian Andersen's fariy tales, they always have a deeper meaning and I  have heard them since I was little. They just stick with you.

As for fae, I like the fae in Patricia Briggs's Mercy Thomson books and I also think the fae is great i Karen Marie Monings Fever series.

Hi New Follower Here.

Are the HCA stories different versions of the tales in Grimms or original to HCA? I hadn't thought of the fae in Pat Briggs, but I like how she has used them to highlight the issue of being a different class of person in the world. They are suitably creepy too. Hope you come by and follow back.

Hans Christian Anderson weaves some amazing and deep and not always pleasant stories!

I'm a huge fan of Hans Christian Andersen as well - his fairy stories were so sad!
