Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 176 comments I have an ex-student (sophomore) who is n avid read and loves books such as The Thirteen Secrets (Thirteen Treasures, #3) by Michelle Harrison but she's looking for suggestions. She LOVES books about fairies. Suggestions?

This girl comes in to talk with me about the book she is reading all the time. She is a true book lover! :o)

Thanks for adding this! :o)

Jax I'm not entirely certain if it would be something your student would like, as for me, Fairy and Fey aren't necessarily mutual topics...

However, Jenna Black has a young adult series : Faeriewalker
Glimmerglass (Faeriewalker, #1) by Jenna Black Shadowspell (Faeriewalker, #2) by Jenna Black Sirensong (Faeriewalker, #3) by Jenna Black

Jax, thank you. These books look like a good series.

What is the difference between fairies and fey? I have NO clue!

Jax LOL...
Maybe its just me - but when ppl refer to fairies, my mind goes to Enid Blyton and Disney's Tinkerbell... LOL
Cute, inch tall with wings...

Whereas the Fey have all manner of mythological beings;
Goblins, RedHats, Elves, Pixies, Brownies,Kelpies etc - and then either the Summer and Winter Courts or similar. :D

That sounds about right. And I've been told that fairies are the Tinkerbelle type, but faeries are the not-so-nice ones! ;-)

oooh! There are quite a few "goodies"!! :D
I'm not sure I'd recommend for under 16's, but
Raymond E. Feist wrote " Faerie Tale" Which was fantastic.
Thereafter, most Fey stories seem to end up in the PNR and UF genre...
Authors of Fey Books include:
Jenna Black| Nicole Peeler | Laurel K. Hamilton (definitely over 18's only!!) | Seanan McGuire...

Just to name a few... :D

Didn't realize that regarding the spelling difference. Thanks...LOVE this group!


message 17: by [deleted user] (new)

I could do with a good book series to read! Here are my preferences:

- Must have a strong female/male character
- Should have the first 3 books written in the seires so I can get the jist of the series
- It should be set in a dystopian/paranormal area
- The author has to be known to the world.

I know my preferences are sort of tough but I am quite picky when it comes to book series.

Thanks for the help!;)
