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!
