This Week's 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?
I have a few favorites. "The Little Mermaid" is one of them. I first read it when I was 9 and received a collection Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales for Christmas. They were the straight, morbid, non-Disney versions. "The Wild Swans" and "The Snow Queen" are some other ones, which I also first read in said collection. I know I have more favorites but I can't think of them right now.
As for my favorite book with fairies...I think the Artemis Fowl books. I know they're more on the sci-fi-y side, but they do have fairies! And if they don't count, then Ash and Huntress by Malinda Lo.
