#FaeFriday was created to help fill the hole in Kristy’s life after #FridayFavorites was discontinued. The idea behind this weekly blog prompt is that each Friday will have a bit of magic sparkled on it with a bookish prompt inspired by the Fair Folk! #FaeFriday is the creation of Kristy from Caffeinated Fae! This blog tag would not have been possible without the help & encouragement from Leah at www.leahs-books.com! If you have a prompt idea, please contact me, and you’ll get credit if/when it’s used!

- Use #FaeFriday when posting to social media so we can all find each other!
- Participate when you can & have fun with the prompt!
This week on #FaeFriday, we’re talking about the wicked faes we have come to love! Faeries are known to have a bit of a wicked side. So this week’s prompt is: What is one wicked book that you not so secretly love? **This prompt was inspired by @Fae_girl63! Please link to author Lydia V. Russell’s webpage lydiavrussellauthor.com**
Can I just say that I’m a little irritated that the first Maleficent is not on Disney+? I don’t get why they took it off again, but they need to just keep it. I do love the second one though, so I’m okay with it, but I’m still irked about it.
Now… when we say “wicked”, are we saying the book was evil? Are we saying the book was crap? Are we saying it was smutty as shit? I have no idea. But I guess I’m going to have to figure that out while I write this post.
So one of the books that I’ll consider wicked is Sweethand by N.G. Peltier! Oh gosh that was an amazingly wicked book with the spice I got to enjoy, and with the animosity between our main characters. I actually need to write my review so that I can reminisce my thoughts on this. It was amazing, and I guess I will say it was pretty wicked.
Then I have this book that I read last year when I got to read this amazing novel called Only a Monster by Vanessa Len. It was wicked in the fact that we get to see the story from the “monster” point of view, and honestly I think I’m more Team Monster than Monster Hunter, you know what I mean?
I’m actually pretty scared about what’s going to happen in the next one honestly… I know I said that pretty much but like hello?! That whole ass book was insane and I loved it so much. I actually need to read it again.
Then I’m going to go back to 2020, to a horror novel that I read that I somehow was able to get through. I know that I listened to this only in the daytime because I can’t do anything horror at night – I legit give myself nightmares – and it took my favorite mythological creature and turned it on its head. Oh gosh, it was one of the scariest books about mermaids that I’ve ever read in my life, and I don’t know if I’ll be able to read another one honestly but maybe I’ll try again one day. I’ll read anything about mermaids, but I don’t know about horror mermaids.
Okay I am obsessed with Angelina Jolie as Maleficent! I wonder if they are going to make another one. I would totally watch it, as long as AJ was in it. But anyway, I hope that helped! I guess you can take the term “wicked” to your own liking, so I gave some examples of which books were wicked and which ones I liked. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts.
