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.

    Beauty and the beast.... * swoons*
    Have a great weekend!

  5. Beauty & The Beast seems to be a popular choice this week. Old follower. Just stopping by to share some FF love :-)

  6. Great answer, just hopping by.

  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.

  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.

  15. Beauty and the Beast is a great choice. We found you through Follow Friday and are now your newest followers! Looking forward to blogging with you!

    Cheers & Happy Writing,

  16. Hopping through. I got into read in 2nd grade, when I read my first Babysitters Club book.
