Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday! [7]

Welcome blog hoppers!
I hope you enjoy your visit here at Writer Quirk!
^_^

Book Blogger Hop 



FFQ: What is your favorite fairy tale or story that revolves around the fae?

WQA:  As for fairy tales (which typically lack actual fairies) I love Beauty and the Beast - the Disney version.  I also love the story of the Twelve Dancing Princesses.  As for fae stories - I've not had much luck there.  Even though I didn't have a chance to finish it, I liked Julie Kagawa's The Iron King best of all the ones I've read.

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

WQA:  Probably in the first grade. I had no trouble reading ahead in our story books at school and reading every book we had at home and bringing stacks back from the library. I was so into reading that growing up, my parents would get worried I'd disappeared because I would be so quiet due to sitting in a corner reading for hours on end.

  7. I love Beauty & the Beast! I was really sad when I found out that the original fairy tales were all sad and not Disney-versioned. So I'm a Disney girl, too. :)
    happy Friday!

  8. OMG. YOU HAD ME AT DISNEY'S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. I can still sing all the songs by heart, and it's been almost three years since I physically saw the movie or listened to the soundtrack.

    I love your blog. Definitely a new follower!

  12. My youngest started reading this year. It's really exciting to be a family of readers now.

    I realized how important books had become in my life in 1999. Come see what happened.

  14. I love Beauty and the Beast as well. ^_^

    The only fae story I've enjoyed so far is Karen Marie Moning's Fever series (first book is "Darkfever." I wasn't thrilled with the first chapter or two of the first book, but once the action starts going, I enjoyed the series for the most part.
