Abby knew that life wasn’t fair.
That’s why she turned to the Fair Ones.

Abby thinks she’s a disappointment. Even though she’s grown up in a family of powerful witches, she can’t use magick, she can’t connect to nature, she can’t do anything special – she’s just a normal human.

And normal isn’t good enough for her.

When a group of faeries offer her one wish, she doesn’t hesita

I Do Believe in Faeries is a fun read. It's the third books in the Cotton Candy Quintet series, the series is a very loose one and can be easily read out of order. In this book we follow Abby, the sister of Jordan, the main character of book 2. We also meet a few characters of book 1 again, but it's only little touches and scenes. I did like the connection this one had with book 2 as Abby is Jordan her sister. But as most time is spent in another

fairies, witches, and ice queens oh my!

I just finished this and my head it spinning... wow what a roller coaster ride. Once upon a time I thought Erin Hayes absolutely couldn't get any better at writing a book. Ladies and gentleman she has proven me very wrong.

this book has a little bit of everything. although I thought a story about Alaina and her baby would be told from her POV I was
elated to discover it was about Abby and her adventure in fairyland. I love Abby and Jordyn so I was incredibl

A friends unborn baby is taken by the pixies. With the help of a friend, a trickster by the name of Robin, she has to go to another world to rescue the baby. She will encounter danger, inprisonment, p ...more

Action packed novella with a great message

Love. I love these short novella style books Erin's been writing. While they are all great I love that that supernatural entity in each book changes.

In this instalment we are reading about a "witch" and a Faerie. I loved Robin he was funny, but dang I wanted to kill him at times. Abby was so selfless in her quest and gave up everything to fix a wrong.

Abby grated on my nerves. Her character was more like a 13 year old who couldn't get her way. I found her whining, sulking and selfishness to be off putting. As her story began to unfold, her character did improve, but what a hard lesson for her to learn that she could have avoided altogether. I liked Robin and felt bad that he had to endure Abby, though it worked out in the end. A faery was so diverse in this tale that I am still trying to figure out what makes them faery. The kingdoms and rule ...more

This whole series is so good. This one started good, got just a little bit boring with all the Tir Na Nog searching, but from the winner court bust out and on it got GOOD! I'm so enjoying this series. Sad that I only have #4 left, #5 not available yet in digital. I usually buy actual print, but I got the first couple free in digital that I wanna keep the whole series that way.

This is book 3 in this series, and no, you don't need to read the other books in the series to enjoy this one, but it does help. Like the other 2 books in this series, this book is a good solid read, and I enjoyed it. A girl getting sucked into a land of fairies makes for a fun story, but beware, as it does have some serious sides to it.

Absolutely adorable!

I loved this book! I think Abby and Robin were amazing characters! I love how it ended! Definitely a must read!

I love the way the author bring folklore into her books. This that you know are not real seen when when reading a book that involves them.

This was a cute novella. I have not read any of the others, but that did not affect my enjoyment. Each seems to be a stand alone.

So I just finished I Do Believe in Faeries and I'm so sad that it ended, I didn't want it to! I just wanted to be forever lost in between the pages.....well, at least until October came when I have to go pick up hubby from coming home from his deployment that is haha.

This is by far my favorite story from Mrs. Hayes and honestly I didn't think anythin

This book is Abby's story, we first met her in I'd Rather Be A Witch which is her sister Jordyn's book  Abby is trying to figure out exactly where she fits in with her family of powerful witches but it seems like she got passed over on the witchy charms. . . 

I loved Abby's personality when we met her in the previous book and I wanted to find out more about the oddball in the family of witches. She's got some things to handle (like finding the perfect prom dress and shoes or obsessing over the la

This story is about Abby, Jordyn's sister. She is the only one in her family who isn't a witch and she absolutely hates it. Abby is like any other teenager, worried about the boy who doesn't notice she's alive, prom dresses, her friends, One Direction and Taylor Swift, but she still feels like her nagic is missing and is determined to figure out how to finally get her powers. Jordyn takes Abby with her to meet, her very pregnant friend, Alaina who was also a professional mermai

Be Careful What You Wish For

This is the first book by Erin Hayes that I have read and I definitely need to read the rest of this series! Growing up in a family full of witches and with no power of her own, Abby constantly feels like an outsider.

Standing inside a faerie ring, she wishes for magick of her own. Wishes granted by faeries come with a sacrifice. Upon her wish being granted, Abby learns the horrific truth of the sacrifice, her friend's baby has been taken!

I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

Growing up, Abby always felt like the odd one out, being a member of a family full of powerful witches, with no magick of her own. Tired of being normal, she makes a wish and it is granted by faeries. Problem is, with faeries, their is always a price. The price is her friend's unborn child. Abby is determined to make things right and rescue the baby.

This was yet another fantastic story by author Erin Hayes. Unique, fun, and

This book is the third in a series of which I had read...NONE..up until now. Clearly I need to rectify this omission! Not that THIS story doesn't stand up entirely on its own. It does! Delightfully! But having had a taste of the wry wit and inventive mind of author Erin Hayes I find my sweet tooth demands more.

Using Shakespeare as reference material makes a great start to a beautifully realized faerie realm; inflicting us with a modern teenager in all her angst and self-absorption--meh (okay, it

I've always love when there is a "quest" type situation in books. This is one of the best I've read so far. Going to somewhere completely unknown and with the dangers and everything else a new land brings to save a child that isn't her own and that no one she knows could even blame her for what happened to the baby is amazing. Plus getting to hang out with an hot guy throughout the whole thing is a really nice added bonus.

So as you can tell I really loved this book lol. It was wonderful and had

Abby feels a disappointment and failure because she is the only one in her family who can't do magic. She finds a way to get magic from faeries but there is a price to pay and she just didn't realise that there would be one and what they would take for it.

Pleasant little story cleverly merging Cotton Candy Quintet characters with Shakespeare. Who would have thought it?

Well written as always and an enjoyable read.

Poor Abby doesn't quite fit into the very real world of magick or that of a normal 17 year old girl. As we all remember teenagers are ruled by their emotions. It was a long journey, but a beautiful. Abby matured between the pages, did what was right, and faith was rewarded. Kinda hoping we'll catch up with them in a later book.

Awesome awesome awesome!! Couldn't put it down!! The characters are just so vibrant!! I just love how the characters tie in with her other books, How to be a Mermaid and I'd rather be a Witch. Makes you so invested, like your part of their lives. Love Erin Hayes!!

This one was definitely more teenager-y than the other two which was a huge turn off for me, but I enjoyed it nonetheless! It was cute and I liked how it tied back to Shakespeare however briefly, but mostly I love happy endings.
