Happy Friday, everyone! I am very excited that the weekend is here ... I don't know why, because I will be working the whole time, but I'm still excited for it! Since it's Friday, that means it's time for the Book Blog Hop (hosted by Jen) and Follow Friday (hosted by Parajunkee). Without further ado, let's jump in!
“When did you realize reading was your passion and a truly important part of your life?”
I don't remember at what point in my life I realized that it was a passion of mine. I have always been reading, from a very young age. I would read the Golden books, Disney books, magazines, road signs ... whatever I could read, I would! In the spring of 2009, I started a management internship at the Walt Disney World Resort, and the long hours and constant exhaustion really took a toll on me and I didn't read anything for about 6 months. However, I realized how much I missed reading and fell back into it quickly!
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 don't read much Irish literature, but I have discovered Pete Hamill this year. While his stories don't focus on fae, they are a part of each of his books. It's always intriguing to learn about that kind of stuff, so maybe I will look into reading more books where that is a focus!
As for favorite fairy tale, it has to be Beauty and the Beast. A girl, living in France, who loves to read ... come on, that's basically describing me to a T (except for living in France, but I would go in a heartbeat if given the chance!) I just love that story and really do think it's a timeless message, and one that every girl should pay attention to. You don't need a man, sometimes he needs you, and don't pay attention to outer beauty, because it's what's inside that counts. Okay, I'm going to stop myself now, because I could talk about this forever!
So, what's your favorite fairy tale?
