I read pretty much any chance I get. I mostly read YA books but some adult ones as well. To me all books are precious gems and are meant to be treasured.

Fae, Fairies, and Faerie :

If you like books about Fae, Fairies, and Faerie you should defiantly give these books a try.
These are some recommendations I got from my local library.
I haven't read all of them yet, but I plan on checking them out very soon.

Tithe by Holly Black :

Sixteen-year-old Kaye is a modern nomad. Fierce and independent, she travels from city to city with her mother's rock band until an ominous attack forces the sixteen-year-old back to her childhood home. There, amid the industrial, blue-collar New Jersey backdrop, Kaye soon finds herself an unwilling pawn in an ancient power struggle between two rival faerie kingdoms - a struggle that could very well mean her death.

My Thoughts:

I haven't read this one, but it sounds great. I will be reading it very
soon. Love the cover it is very simple but intriguing.

Tattoo by Jennifer Lynn Barnes:

Bailey Morgan isn't the type of girl who shows a lot of skin, but somehow, she ends up in a dressing room at the mall with her friend Delia applying a temporary tattoo to her lower back. Never one to suffer fashion doubt, trendsetter Delia knows exactly where she wants her own tattoo: on her stomach, right where her shirt ends. Annabelle, the quiet one, chooses the back of her neck, and tomboy Zo plasters hers on the top of her foot. The tattoos will last for three days, and Delia's sure that with them, the four friends will absolutely kill at the school dance.
Unfortunately, killing is just what someone has in mind, and Bailey, Delia, Annabelle, and Zo are in for the battle of their lives. Along with her tattoo, each girl receives a gift- a supernatural power to help them in their fight. As Bailey's increasingly frightening dreams reveal the nature of their enemy, it becomes clear to the girls that it's up to them to save the world. And if they can get Delia to stop using her newfound power to turn
gum wrappers into Prada pumps they might actually stand a chance.

My Thoughts:

I love the concept of this book it sounds really interesting. I used to be a henna tattoo artist, so I love temporary tattoos, but none of the ones I did on myself gave me any supernatural powers ........bummer. Will be reading this book in the near future.
This is the first in the series check out Fate the sequel as well.

The Faerie Path by Frewin Jones:

Swept away into a court of magic and beauty, she discovers she is Tania, the lost princess of Faerie. Since Tania's mysterious disappearance five hundred years before, Faerie has been sunk in darkness and gloom. With her return, Faerie comes alive again as a land of winged children, glittering balls, and fantastic delights. But Tania can't forget Anita's world, or the boy she loved there.
Torn between two loves and between two worlds, Tania slowly remembers why she disappeared, and realizes that she is the only one who can stop a sinister plan that threatens the entire world of Faerie.

My Thoughts:

This book sounds great too. I really love the cover its very beautiful. This is the first book in the series. There are currently six books out. The Faerie Path, The Lost Queen, The Seventh Daughter, The Immortal Realm, The Enchanted Quest, and The Charmed Return.

These are just a couple, I will be posting more soon !!!  :)


  1. I'll be really interested to see what you think of Tattoo, I absolutely adore her Raised by Wolves series, but haven't read anything else by her. I've heard good things about Tithe as well. Hope you enjoy all your fae stories!

  2. The modern faerie tale was interesting to say the least. I really liked Tithe but I hated the rest of the trilogy.....

    Im doing a fairy tale week in a bit and I know Tithe is on the list for dark faerie reading...;)

  3. I LOVED Tithe! I'm TOTALLY checking out Tattoo!!!

  4. Tattoos with powers? I have obviously been going to the wrong artist ;)

    The book sounds fun and I think it's SUPER cool that you use to do henna art.

  5. PS LOVE your blog! You are off to a fantastic start and your name is fantastic.

    Your blog name makes me think of books twinkling on their bookshelves.
