Fae Friday – Samhain

Fae Friday is an awesome new weekly post created by Kristy at Caffeinated Fae. I’m super excited to participate in this (and to have been an avid supporter of it from the beginning)! A topic is provided each week, and Kristy is so welcoming to ideas from others. If you have any ideas for topics, reach out to her through her blog or on Twitter (@caffeinatedfae).

Here’s the rules:

  • Link back to this page on Caffeinated Fae.
  • If the prompt idea comes from another blog, link to that blog as well.
  • Use #FaeFriday when posting to social media so we can all find each other!
  • Participate when you can and have fun with the prompt!

Tomorrow is Halloween, and Samhain celebrations will start tomorrow as well. It is thought that Samhain is when the Fae walk among us. Fae are not to be tampered with, and it is believed that the fairies & spirits needed to be appeased during Samhain. So, the prompt this week is: If you were to leave out one book to appease the Fae, what book would it be?

The first book that came to mind for this prompt was The Cruel Prince by Holly Black. This is probably the first book I read that portrayed the Fae as dark and malevolent, and really drove home the fact that they aren’t the kind of creatures you want to mess with. I think it would be a great book to leave out as an offering to appease them during Samhain.

What kind of book would you leave out to appease the Fae?
