Faerie Book Recommendations

Faerie Book Recommendations

Who here loves reading and hearing about the fae? I do! Though, I’m sure this seems weird to many of you, as I don’t seem to read many books with the fae in. And there is a reason for that. If you saw my post on what I want to see in fae books from a while ago, you’ll have an idea why. I’m incredibly picky, but I really do love reading about the fae. So I wanted to give you all some recommendations of fae books that I have read and loved.

I won’t lie. In many aspects, these may not be what you’re looking for in a fae book. The adult series recommended on here may be up your street if you’re big on faerie romance.

Rather than just ranting about fae books. Which I honestly could. I thought I’d share a few things I’d like to see in books about the fae. Some of these are things I’ve definitely included in things I’ve started, but it might give you guys some ideas too!

Book Review: Ironspark by C.M McGuire

If you know me then you know I love queer genre books. Especially of the YA variety. And that I’m also fascinated by the fae. So when C.M McGuire reached out to me asking me to check out her book? Well, I obviously had to.

This book follows Bryn, a teenage girl who has been training to fight the fae in the hope of protecting her family. When she was younger her mum was taken by the fae and now years after she thought she’d escaped the Unseelie court they’re back. With new friends Dom and Jaskia in tow they have to try to stop the fae before it’s too late.
