fairy

Featured Fairy:

Celeana from Throne of Glass

This is sort of, kind of a spoiler but she really is one of my favourite characters so I had to talk about her. She’s just so perfect! I love that everyone thinks she the most dangerous person (she kind of is) but she’s a really great person. She’s done what she’s done for very good reason. I love how she’s an excellent assassin and she wins the challenges because of her intelligence, not her fighting skills. She’s the perfect female heroine because she can keep up with all the guys while still being very smart. She’s definitely a character I look up to. Plus she has great relationships with all the other characters. She keeps things interesting.

“Libraries were full of ideas–perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons.”

    Are fairies real? I recently read a book in which the author published photos she had taken of them. Made me wonder!
