Follow Friday 5 and tgif 2

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 really enjoyed Holly Black's Tithe. I used to like Wicked Lovely, but not so much a fan of the series anymore. Fairytale fairytale would be Beauty and the Beast. 

What's yours?

Summer Love: Where is your ideal place to take a summer vacation & get lost in a book?
I guess my ideal summer vacation would be Paris. I'm not a huge fan of hot weather. Although I guess a lone island to myself with a nice breeze, and lots of cocktails is quite tempting. 


  1. Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog! I followed you back :) I want to read Tithe by Holly Black, so I'll have to get a copy soon and read it!

    Happy Friday!


  2. Thank you for commenting on my blog! I followed you, too. Your blog is lovely!

    And Paris sounds great! I've always wanted to go there! :)

    Hope you have a great Friday!

  3. Wicked Lovely was the first YA fae book I've read, but it isn't a of mine favorite either. It was good, but not great.

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog. :D

    I still haven't read Holly Black's Tithe series, but have heard good things. It's on my list.

    I'm the same, Wicked Lovely started great for me then I kind of drifted off it.

    Have a great weekend. :D

  7. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I've heard amazing things about Tithe. I've got a friend who's extremely picky for books and she loved it. I can't wait to read it myself.

    I would love to travel to Paris someday. :)

    Happy Blogging,

  17. Hi Amy! Old follower hopping by. Beauty and the Beast is a great choice! Lol. Indecisive as always, I had to narrow it down to my top 3!

  18. Great answers! I'm with you! ;)

    Thanks for stopping by!

  19. I love Beauty and the Beast as well, and Paris would be an awesome vacation!

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  20. Thanks for stopping by today! I'd have to say I'm with you on the Wicked Lovely series---I loved the first one, but couldn't get past that! Beauty and the Best is awesome! Have you read Beastly? Pretty good adaptation! I'm on the fence about seeing the movie though...

    New follower here! :D

  21. I really want to read Holly Black's books now! I haven't heard of them till you mentioned them. I got burned out on the Wicked Lovely books, they just started to make me angry like she was intentionally trying to have a 'unhappy ending' in them. Or not make it 'work out totally'. Even KMM gave Mac a happily ever after in a proper way lol

  32. Aw, Beauty and the Beast, you know that reminds me of that old show that had Lisa Hamilton in it. I was like literally ten years old or something, when that show as popular and it was the one show that I was allowed to stay up and watch. I loved it so much, it had such beautiful imagery, the music, and the creativity in the tunnels underground that made up such a fascinating way of life. :)
