This weeks question is: In light of the Summer Solstice, also known as Midsummer...let's talk about fairies. What is your favourite fair take or story that revolves around fae?
I would have to say that Cinderella is my favourite fairy tale. It had everything. A beautiful mistreated heroine, a fairy god mother, ugly step-sisters, a sinister step mother, Prince Charming, you name it!
The book that really brought my Cinderella nostalgia to mind is Ella Enchanted which is a bit of a retelling of the Cinderella story with a twist. Ella is a beautifully written headstrong heroine who doesn't wait around for Charming to save her. I know it's meant to be a child's book but sometimes you just gotta go with your inner child.
