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!
