Listless Monday, Fairy Tale Part II (Fairy-stories)

Listless Monday was inspired by both Amanda at A Bookshelf Monstrosity's feature Books by Theme and Court at Once Upon a Bookshelf's Listed feature.  Be sure to check out their lists!

The Iron Daughter (Harlequin Teen) Darklight (Wondrous Strange) Wicked Lovely (Wicked Lovely (Quality)) 

As you learned a few weeks ago, I like to include stories about fairies in my idea of fairy tales.  And since the realm of Faerie is making a comeback in the world of recent books today, there are lots of newer titles with faeries/fairies/fae/fey/fair folk/elves/pixies and any number of other iterations of this creature.  (NatalieSap created a great list called Faerie Fascinations, be sure to check it out!)  So, here are some I could think of:

The Fairy-Stories

Ash by Malinda Lo (suggested by Andie)
The Blue Girl by Charles de Lint (suggested by Andie)
Bones of Faerie by Janni Lee Simner
Daughter of the Forest and the rest of the Sevenwaters books by Juliet Marillier
Dreamdark: Blackbringer and Dreamdark: Silksinger by Laini Taylor
Faerie Tale by Raymond E. Feist (suggested by Andie)
Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog
Iron King and Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa
Lament: the Faerie Queen's Deception and Ballad by Maggie Stiefvater 

Need and Captivate by Carrie Jones
Thornspell by Helen Lowe (suggested by Andie)
Whistle Bright Magic by Barb Bentler Ullman
Wicked Lovely series by Melissa Marr
Wings and Spells by Aprilynne Pike
Wondrous Strange and Darklight by Lesley Livingston

Any additions?

If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage


  1. I created a website called Faerie Fascination for a library class a couple years ago. I haven't updated it since, but it has quite a few additions. I was very much obsessed with all things fae for awhile. :)

  2. Natalie, thanks for the link! I'll have to check it out!

  3. I would add Helen Lowe's 'Thornspell', (Sleeping Beauty from the prince's side of the story) in which the fey are a very strong part of the retelling; also Malinda Lo's 'Ash' (Cinderella). And what about Raymond E Feist's 'Faerie Tale' or Charles de Lint's 'The Blue Girl'?

  4. Andie, thanks for the suggestions! I really loved Thornspell and didn't remember the fey in it!


Love it when you comment!
