  • If you're new to the follow friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!

  • Since this is my first Feature & Follow Friday I'm going to make it simple. This week's question is:

    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?

    For me, the story that always comes to my mind when i think of fairies is "Midsummer Night's Dream", I read that book when I was eleven or so and I loved it. Shakespeare's writing and his character had me captivated since the first page and I enjoyed it so much that, it doesn't matter where do I move next (right now I'm living in Switzerland) I always bring my copy of the book with me.

    And now, for my blog, please, read the post below this one *wink wink* and enter for the giveaway of "Paradox - The Angels Are Here".
    And enjoy my "Review/Library" section, have as much fun as you can here and leave me a comment if you are a new follower so I can go and follow you back  :D

    Hugs to everybody!!!

    10. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog! You made a comment about Beastly in my post. I loved Beastly. I think it's one of the best fairytale retellings I've read. About your answer-- Have you read the Theatre Illuminata series by Lisa Mantchev? I was just reminded of it from your answer. She incorporates Shakespeare's characters in the story, including the fairies, and it's just wonderful.

    14. Hi New Follower. I was reading your about you. I always wonder in parallel universes or alternate realities as depicted in videos how the people in the alternate universes where they walk thru walls and such can stand on the same floor as the people in the other reality. It's a paradox.
      Hope you stop by:

    17. Midsummer's Night Dream is a beautiful fairy tale that I love. I think one of my favorite is Hans Christian Anderson's, The Snow Queen. But, I also love anything that involves faeries with a more modern twist, like Melissa Marr's Wicked Lovely series. :)
