TGIF and Follow Friday

TGIF is hosted by the lovely GREADS. If you haven't checked out her blog- go now......you're missing out!
            Each Friday we can recap our blogs weekly posts and
Greads posts a book related question:

Summer Love: Where's your ideal place to take a summer vacation & get lost in a book?

How about here:

or


(my dream place Santorini)

Since neither will be happening, I settle for my back yard deck.....:)
So glad it's summer!




Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkees View!
This weeks question:
 
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 think my ultimate favourite fairy will forever be Tinkerbell.
I loved her in the stories of Peter Pan (clap your hands if you believe)....

As for YA Fae books I would say - Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr and
The Iron Fae Series by Julie Kagwa.

What about you?

  15. Oh, I just read Sisterhood Everlasting, and Santorini would be great right now....especially if Kostos was there......

  16. Both those photos made me drool. How great would it be to jet off to one of those places?? Sigh...

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wow, both of those places would be awesome. I understand bout the not being able to go part. Mostly I read at home, at Barnes and Noble with a coffee or at a park when the weather is nice. Great picks.

  27. Hi!--Old follower, but now following you on twitter, too!!!

    Gorgeous pics!!! :)

    I used to love Tinkerbell as a kid, but then I rewatched the movies a few years ago, and she was kind of mean...So I went with The Little Mermaid!

    Hope you're having a great weekend!

  28. The Iron Fey series and the Wicked Lovely series are awesome :). I personally like the Iron Fey better than WL, but they're both great reads. I LOVE the places you chose for the first question! I hadn't heard of Santorini, but it's now on my radar :D!
    Hope you're having a great weekend!
