This week's question is...
When did you realize that reading is your passion and a truly important part of your life?
There never really was a moment when I realized that I love to read. For as long as I can remember, every Saturday my mom would take me to the library and I would get a stack of books. When I was very young, it started as seven picture books, one for each night, and slowly evolved into a pile of regular books. Now I get my books by ordering them online through the library, but the point remains that reading has always been a part of my life, thanks to my parents.
This week's Follow Friday question is...
What is your favorite fairy tale or story that revolves around the fae?
I can't really pick just one fairy tale I love, but the entire volume of Grimms' Fairy Tales (as in, the real ones, not the happy Disney-fied version) completely scared the crap out of me as a little kid, and so I adored it. Each one was terrifying, violent, and brutal to my young self and served as such a contrast to the generally upbeat books that stocked my shelves that I couldn't help but read them over and over again.
