Follow Friday #3 and Book Blogger Hop #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?

My favourite fairy tale would probably be Beauty and the Beast! When I was younger, I used to like this story best because I loved Bella's yellow dress (Superficial, I know. But I'm a girl!) Now it's still my favourite but for entirely different reasons...I think it's a wonderful tale that teaches us how love is about seeing past someone's physical exterior to the person inside, and that beauty isn't just skin-deep. It's hard to remember this sometimes but Beauty and the Beast always reminds me and that's why it's my all-time favourite!



Q: When did you realise reading was your passion and a truly important part of your life?

Honestly, I don't think there was this specific time in my life where I was suddenly struck by the realisation that I couldn't do without books. Reading has always been part of my life so I kind of took it for granted. I think even before I entered kindergarten I was already starting to read, thanks to my mom's determination...and not the kiddy picture-filled kind of books either! Now as a teenager, even after discovering new hobbies, I still feel the same passion for reading.

We're so lucky to have books in this world!

This weeks question was hard. I didn't know what to pick! There are so many fairy tales I love. Great pick by the way. LOVED Beauty and the Beast and the moral behind the story :)

Have a great weekend!

I think every little girl was obsessed with Bella's dress. I know so many people who picked one similar for graduation because they loved it so much. Trust me, you are in good company on that front. Great choice. New follower.

Who doesn't like Belle's dress? i used to beg my mom to read me this story over and over and I've probably watched the movie the same amount of times. Good choice and thank you for visiting my blog on the hop!

I love Beauty and the Beast too. I think that I have come to love the adaptations of the tale even more. I loved Beastly (the book, not the movie) and the Tiger's Curse series, both of which are based on this fairy tale.

As for the Iron Fey and whether Ash is cute. Oh well he is the Winter Prince, all dark and mysterious. Dark hair and ice blue eyes. Sharp features. Totally hot for an ice boy. Move this series up to the number one spot on your TBR pile!

Hi, Felicia! :) I'm a new follower!

The Beauty and the Beast is my favourite fairy tale too! Out of all the Disney princesses, I have to say that Belle is the one I adore the most because she came to love the Beast even though he didn't look like a prince.

And I agree with you one-hundred percent! We are definitely lucky to have books in this world -- I don't know what I'd do without them ;)

Hope you have an awesome weekend!

When did I first realize I loved reading? I wish I could prove a pre-natal predilection towards books but my memories don’t stretch back quite that far.

The earliest memories I can recall involved books. First having them read to me then reading them on my own the minute I had the ability.

Books have been a major part of my life ever since. My passion for the written word knowing no bounds, I started writing books on top of reading them about ten years ago.

Want to know what my favorite childhood book was? Hop on over to my blog and find out: http://www.howardsherman.net
