It's Follow Friday!

It's Follow Friday, where we all get to mingle around the blogosphere and make some new friends! If it's your first time visiting me here at Stories & Sweeties, WELCOME!! :D

The question of the week is posted by Mickey @ I'm a Book Shark:

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?

A: I love fairy stories! Not to go for the obvious, but one of my favorites is Midsummer Night's Dream. Some recent favorites include Wings by Aprilynne Pike, Eyes Like Stars & Perchance to Dream by Lisa Mantchev, and definitely Ash by Malinda Lo.

Check back soon for:
~A review of Anna & The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (*sigh*, loved St. Claire!)
~A review of Passion by Lauren Kate (its getting exciting!)
~A recap of the Lauren Kate signing I recently attended
~Don't miss Sweetness on Sunday, featuring Super Fudgy Mint Cupcakes!!

Please feel free to say hello in the comments so I can find you, too! :D

    Great choices, I really like Ash too!

  2. Thanks for the follow :)

  3. Thanks for the suggestions. I am always looking for new books to feed my fairy obsession. New follower :-)

  4. Hi, new follower from the Follow Friday blog hop! I really want to start the Wings by Aprilynne Pike series! It looks really good!


  5. I loved ASH so much!!! Have you read HUNTRESS? It's set in the same world as ASH, but a few hundred years earlier. It was also very good!

  6. I have a lot of these on my TBR list. I just need to get to them. :)

  7. Have you read The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa? That one is really good!

  8. Hey there, I find your blog via Follow Friday, and I'm your 1000th follower!

    If you get a moment, head over to Teen Fiction Centre and have a look around!

  10. Hi, Becky! Thanks so much for stopping by -- I'm definitely following you back! Your blog is just too cute and I'm actually kind of craving cupcakes at the moment ;)

    I love faery/fairy stories too! Especially A Midsummer Night's Dream, although that may be because I'm a total Shakespeare fan! You should definitely read Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series because some of the characters from AMND (like Puck, Oberon, and Titania) are in it! :)

    But I picked up Wings and loved it, and Lisa's books are already added to my TBR pile!

    Hope you're having an awesome weekend!

  11. Hopping through. I really want to read the Mantchev books. I love the covers.
