a pooka!

a pixie

a pixie.

Personally, there are other fairy tale creatures I would like to be over a faerie, but if I had to choose, that is what I would be.

I am also avoiding reading the review until I read the book, but I hope I like it better than Valiant.

If I could be any faerie creature, I would choose to be... an elf ... must be all that tolkien and RPG influence.

A Pixie!!

Well a Pixie, of course!!

I'd love to be a Pixie as well...so cute!

I would be... a faun. I know I'm a girl, but the idea of living in the woods and meeting Mr Tumnus for tea is too cool!

Not sure if dryads could or not as fairies...

a pooka! Shapeshifting and stirring up trouble? Sign me up!

About Me

My photo
Since I was a little girl I have been fascinated with books. Early photos show me with a book in hand, even if it was not exactly my reading level... My first word was a made-up word meaning 'book', actually. I suppose I had my priorities at an early age... Over the years my interest in books has become one of the defining features of who I am as a person. You can probably call me a bookworm. While I have other interests, reading will always be the one I talk about the most, even if I am not focusing on it as much as I used to.
