    I've decided that I just love fairies in general, although I think my current favorite is the Wicked Lovely series (maybe that's because I'm in the midst of reading it?) and you and I both know I could truly use this book.... :-D Whee!! (amccleve (at) gmail (dot) com

  8. I have read Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange but not Fragile Eternity yet:)

    I like Karen Marie Moning's Fever series..they have creepy fey.

  9. Hmm, I would probably have to say The Two Princesses of Bamarre, by Gail Carson Levine. Actually, I love pretty much all of her fairy tale retellings. :)

    I've heard great things about Melissa Marr's series, but I actually haven't read any of them yet :( Hopefully that can change soon though lol
    Thanks for the awesome contest!

  10. I've not read very many fairy stories, and the 2 I've tried recently didn't really work for me. This is probably silly, but the best fairy tale I can come up with was some fictional fairy tales in AS Byatt's possession, which talked about the Lamia. I'm really looking forward to reading Melissa Marr's work.

  11. Maybe this sounds dark - but I really love the fairy tale Blackbeard and all the renditions of it. I ended up taking a Mythology and Fairy Tale class in college and wrote a paper on the parallels between the Buffy episode Ted - and the fairy tale of Blackbeard. It was a fun paper. I also love the graphic novel series called Fables - which has a Blackbeard character in it. :)

  13. So far Tithe come to mind but FAIRY TALE by Cyn Balog and WONDROUS STRANGE by Lesley Livingston comes in close! A re-telling on Cinderella that I just read that was quite good happens to be called ASH by Malinda Lo. Definitely check it out!

  15. Not quite sure what my favorite fairy series would be. I guess I'll just have to go with Melissa Marr's books. The first two in this series, Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange, were really great. I'm soooo looking forward to this one.

    So please enter me!

    Thanks for the contest :)

    I recently read Ink Exchange and I'm desperate to see how it all is going to end! I need the next book :) I remember this book, Faerie Tale by Raymond E Feast, which had evil fairies and scariness and a big spider...it was awesome! I do love me a bit of Labyrinth, though. "You remind me of the babe..."

  21. I like the Tam Lin re-tellings. Any of them. Never get tired of it. Like the recent Heir to Sevenwaters by Juliet Marillier. Almost seemed Tam-lin-ish to me.

    I'd like to participate in the prize-winning! Um, I guess my email is: this_is_shar@live.com

  30. I honestly love everything to do with fairies. When I was younger, I was obsessed with Tinkerbell and all Disney and other fairy tales. The Wicked Lovely series is one of my favourite fairy series. :)

    It involves fairies, so I suppose it counts...

    My favorite fairy tale is actually part of the original Peter Pan book (not the Disneyfication). I had an illustrated version of the story as a child, and it always seemed so poignant to me when Peter is lost in Covent Garden with the fairies, and later finds out that he can never go home to his mother. The illustrations were realistic, and really added to the sense of darkness in the story. I don't think I could have articulated that at the time, but I think that's why I likes it.

  33. I'd love to enter. I just finished Wickely Lovely and Ink Exchange arrived today. My favorite book dealign with fairies as of late is Lament. I can't wait for the next book.

  34. I would love to enter this contest. I love the wicked lovely series, but my favorite fairy series would have to be the new series, wonderous strange.

  35. My favorite is Little Red Riding Hood, that's probably why the Paranormal is my favorite genre to read! Love reading about werewolves and vampires.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I adore all of Robin McKinley's fairy tale re-tellings, but a more recent favorite is Delia Sherman's Changeling. New York itself is an alternate fairy world, and the different creatures and epic adventure make the book a wonderful reading experience.

  40. I think my favorite Fairy book is Wicked Lovely!
    But Tithe by Holly Black is close in my books.

    I haven't read Fragile Eternity yet but i can't wait too

  41. You know, in all honesty, I can't think of any books that I've read (of the contemporary vein) that have had fairies in them...that's bizarre, because I know I've read some. Does Leven Thumps have fairies?

    I do have a special love for A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare, which has a heck of a lot of fairies. Hopefully that counts.

    Anywho, email in profile and thanks for the giveaway!

  48. My favorites would be a toss-up between Marr's series, and Wondrous Strange (which I hear is the beginning of a series) The Merry Gentry series is another that I enjoy but not as much.

Angie's Best Books of 2016

Let's just lay our cards on the table, shall we, and agree that, on the whole, 2016 was an abysmal year.
And I'd just like to personally invite it not to let the door hit it on the way out.
This is me being as charitable as I can possibly be at this point. 
That said, I want to send a glorious shout out to the wonderful books that have come out this past year, and to all the authors (and readers) who have not given in to the anxiety, depression, anger, and fear that I know so many of us have felt throughout the past twelve months (or more). It is the last day of the year, and I have poured all of my gratitude (and hope for a better one to come) into my annual list of my favorite reads of the year. Just 17 this year. Fewer than the past few years, which indicates a healthy dose of necessary rereading in this year that has been what it was, as well as the fact that I just didn't get to as many new releases.

Cover Reveal + Q&A: A Season of Daring Greatly by Ellen Emerson White

As longtime readers of the blog know, I am a full-fledged Ellen Emerson White fangirl and have been for something going on time immemorial. What this means is that a few years ago, having just finished reading my local library's copy of The Road Homefor the second time in as many days, I sat on the couch, brandished the book at my newlywed husband, and told him I was seriously considering never returning it (my conscience did eventually kick in and I meekly returned the library copy—after managing to procure a copy of my own, naturally). 
What this means is I went on to purchase an obscene number of out of print copies of the same title(before it was available as an e-book) and proceeded to send them winging their way across the globe to homes where I knew they were needed. 
What this means is that I refer to Ms. White's characters by their first names in casual conversation (pretty much on a daily basis) with friends and family members, and they automatically know exactly wh…
