Bookish Tag Post: The Fae Book Tag


I like fae and I like books, and I really like this tag because it has some creative questions that I’ve not seen in other tags. Having already done the tag (I’m writing the intro last, sorry to break the illusion), I like that I even got to talk about some books I haven’t talked about much or in a while!

Anyway, I found this at KBbookreviews. The rules are:

– Give credit to the creator of this tag ā€“ Jordyn Reads
– If you want to, pingback to the post you first saw this tag.
– And most importantly, have fun!

A FAERIE BARGAIN: Pick a book in which a character makes a bad deal / is blackmailed

Tasmanian Gothic by Mikhaeyla Kopievksy

Tasmanian Gothic by Mikhaeyla Kopievksy. This book kicks off with a character stuck between two crime lords she owes debts to, I think because of her father, and that’s sort of a bad deal, right? Anyway, it’s what drives her to graft giant moth wings to her back and join the other mutated people in her post-apoc world. [ My Review ]

CHANGELING: Pick a book in which a character is dropped into a new world

An Heir to Thorns and Steel by M.C.A. Hogarth

The main character in An Heir to Thorns and Steel (Blood Ladders Trilogy) by M.C.A. Hogarth doesn’t go through a portal or anything like that, but he does go to a far off land where the elves live, that I don’t think he even knew for sure existed (been a while since I read it), so that’s basically a new world. [ My Review ]

WINGS OR MAGIC: Pick one or the other, and list three favourite books that include characters with that trait

Incubus by Amanda MeuwissenChase the Dark by Annette MarieWayward Son by Rainbow Rowell

So many of the books I read involve characters with magic, so I thought, I’ll see if I can find three with wings! Turned out to be really easy. The Incubus Saga (Incubus) by Amanda Meuwissen [ My Review ], the Steel & Stone series (Chase the Dark) by Annette Marie [ My Review ], and the Simon Snow series (Wayward Son) by Rainbow Rowell [ My Review ] are three of my all-time favorites, and all have a main character (if not the protagonist) with wings. I even used the covers to prove it for two of them!

ANIMAL COMPANIONS: Pick a book in which there is a talking animal

Withered + Sere by TJ Klune

Withered + Sere (Immemorial Year series) by TJ Klune doesn’t technically have a talking animal, but the MC hears his dog in his head, and it’s sort of up to reader interpretation whether he can really hear the dog or not. [ My Review ]

FATED MATES: Pick a book in which there is a mating bond / Pick a book with true love in it

Steal the Light by Lexi Blake

Steal the Light (Thieves series) by Lexi Blake sort of has both, but not in the conventional way. Zoey and Daniel aren’t exactly fated mates, their love comes from growing up together and knowing each other, and I have always adored the deep love between them (which feels like true love to me), but they do also have a supernatural bond for vampire reasons. [ My Review ]

THE SPRING COURT: Pick a book in which plants feature a large role

Jack of Thorns by A.K. Faulkner

One of the main characters in Jack of Thorns (Inheritance series) by A.K. Faulkner has multiple powers, including the ability to grow and manipulate plants. (So does one of the MCs in the Thieves series, I was tempted to choose that again lol.) [ My Review ]

THE SUMMER COURT: Pick a book in which the ocean or a body of water features a large role

Teeth by Hannah Moskowitz

Teeth by Hannah Moskowitz is about a boy whose family moves to a little coastal island town and the mer boy he meets there. [ My Review ]

THE AUTUMN COURT: Pick a book in which fire plays a large role

Obscura Burning by Xan van Rooyen

Obscura Burning by Xan van Rooyen. The premise of this one involves the main character, his friend, and his boyfriend being in a fire, and since then, his life has split into two parallel alternate realities that he jumps between, each with different tragedies and difficulties, and he knows that somehow it all goes back to that night of the fire. [ My Review ]

THE WINTER COURT: Pick a book in which a character almost freezes to death

Tales from Blackthorn Briar by Sebastian Nothwell

Tales from Blackthorn Briar by Sebastian Nothwell (companion sequel to Oak King Holly King) has a scene in which one character is injured and freezing, but don’t worry, there’s all sorts of hurt/comfort after. [ My Review ]


Talk to me!

Have you read about any characters with wings?
How about books where plants play a big role?

    I love fae as you know ha so it was cool to see this. Tasmanian Gothic is such a cool title.

    Teeth! A mer boy. I love mer stuff too. And parallel realities. The plant manipulation reminds me of a character in The Atlas Six which I just read…
