This weeks question is:
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?
I would definitely have to say The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa. I love the fairies and the fairie world she creates in her books!

Book Blogger Hop #17

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by It's a great way to meet new people and friends around the blogworld!

Today's question is:
When did you realize reading was your passion and a truly important part of your life?”
When I was kid I used to read a lot. Then I discovered BOYS and became a teen, and I stopped reading. Now that my kids are older, I've gotten back into reading a lot, and I have discovered that it's my escape from reality. Something that I Really need sometimes. :)

Thanks for stopping by everyone! Please leave a comment with your link so I can follow you back!

  3. Old follower stopping by. :)

    While I like the Iron Fey series, as I'm not as crazy about it as a lot of people are, although I am looking forward to the Iron Knight. It has a beautiful cover.

  4. This series is popular this week, I have had it on my TBR pile for ages.

    My FF,

    Have a nice weekend.

  5. Hey, Christy! Definitely in agreement about The Iron Fey. Those have been some of my favorite reads this year. I can't wait for The Iron Knight. Enjoy your weekend!

  11. I am so glad I started reading the Iron Fey series. I really do love it. Happy weekend and reading.

  12. I haven't read the Iron Feys series yet, but it sounds really great.

    I'm a new follower btw and I'd love if you'd follow back.

  13. Your blog is so cute!! Aaah it makes me so happy! I know exactly what you mean about discovering BOYS as a teen HAHAHA!!! I should update my response to include that as a reason that I stopped for a while!!

    I'm following you :)


  14. I haven't read the Iron Fey series yet, I'm hoping to tackle that over this summer.
    Enjoyed the post!

  15. Great answer - I think I stopped reading and restarted again just like you! New follower!

    Our post is here.

  16. Hi again, Christy! Old follower Mimi here :)

    I agree one-hundred percent! Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series is definitely my favourite in the faery genre. Her books are just so amazing and completely different than any other faery series I've read.

    Hope you have an awesome weekend!

  17. Yes, reading is a good escape at times.

  18. Books are better than crushes. True fax.

    Following you :)

  19. Ugh, I put the wrong link!

  20. I discovered books instead of boys as a teen. Then I went to college and found a boy who loves books as much as I do.

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

  21. Hopping by from the Hop!
    Reading started in childhood for me. I was a teenager too and discovered boys BUT I still found time to read haha. I did stop for a while because I hated being forced to read books I didn't want to in school. But now I'm back to reading again! :)
    My Hop is here:

  22. Iron Fey strikes again ... WOO HOO!

  23. The Iron Fey series seems to be very popular and I completely understand the "escape from reality" plus of reading.

    Have a great weekend!

  24. I need to read the Iron Fey series. I still haven't got to it yet. Too many books to read and too little time.

  25. It seems like a lot of people are loving this series! I should read the first book soon to see what everybody's talking about.
    Happy weekend!

  26. Just hopping by to say hi!--Hope you're having a great weekend!

    A lot of people are choosing Iron Fey...guess I should add it to my tbr list!

    So glad you've gotten back into reading again!!!


  27. I totally get the escape from reality thing! I stopped reading as much in high school (I still probably read more than my friends) and college and I remember getting back into it. Honestly, the urge to buy books never left me and I bought Twilight. So as cheesy as it sounds, Twilight rekindled my love of reading.

  28. Hopping through. It's funny how boys become less interesting once they become husbands :-)
