Fantastic Fairies

By chance, I happened to read several stories featuring Fairies. Each one was a vastly different take on Fairy culture. Even the plot of each story was so different, I hardly realized I had read more Fairy themed books in a few months than probably ever before in my life. Here are my top three. What about you, have Fairies been popping up unexpectedly anywhere in your life?

Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog

Just before their sixteenth birthday, Morgan's boyfriend confesses that he is a Fairy who was switched at birth with a human child. Now the Fairies want him back, but Morgan is not willing to let go so easily.

Violet Wings by Victoria Hanley

Three years after her mother's death, Zaria finds her mother's spellbook. When an evil Fairy tries to steal it from her, Zaria decides to hide it in a place where magic doesn't work, Earth. But humans complicate her life more than she expects.

Wings by Aprilynne Pike

When Laurel discovers she is actually a Fairy living among humans, she is understandably freaked out. However there are some good things about being a Fairy. Things like magic.
