Hoppin' AroundFriday, June 24, 2011
It's Friday, the best day of the week! And do you know what that means? I mean, I get to participate in two awesome memes. Follow Friday from Parajunkee and Blogger Hop from Crazy-for-Books.com are Friday memes, a great way to make new friends. Here's the questions below:
I really don't like reading books about the fae. I'm always very hesitant to read them, at least. However, when I first read Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr a few years ago, I had to read the rest in the series. I love that series, but still haven't had a chance to read Darkest Mercy, which I hear is fantastic.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 hated to read when I was younger. In school, I would always skim my way through books. I always had better things to do, I suppose. (Which I didn't, but that is probably what I thought back then.) I was a movie buff (still am), not a reader. It wasn't until I saw this beautiful movie, Tristan and Isolde (starring James Franco and Sophia Miles), that I felt I needed to read something about the Romeo and Juliet-like couple. I begged my school librarian to order the books just for me; she let me keep them over the whole summer while I poured over each word, hung onto every page, and I don't even think I ate a thing for a whole two days (reading the first in the series). The books, starting with Isolde, Queen of the Western Isle, is not something a 7th grader should be reader, but it did get me reading. After that I couldn't stop reading, that's probably when I realized that reading is much better than a lot of things.When did you realize reading was your passion and a truly important part of your life?
I'm really looking forward to all of your responses on today's questions. I definitely want to hear about other great fae books that I might be missing out on. Happy graduation for all those graduates this weekend (I'm graduating tomorrow)! Have a lovely weekend!
