Fairy Tale Gifts 1: Karly Noelle Abreu

Karly had the first submission in the December Giveaway: Favorite Fairy Tale Things. I think I am really going to enjoy this and even learn about some new stuff, too. Thanks, Karly!

From Karly:

I love giving fairy tale-esque gifts. Mostly books, especially:

-Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis, (an adaption of Cupid and Psyche, often considered the first fairy tale, but also has strong "beauty and the beast" overtones, and my absolute favorite book)

- Rose Daughter by Robin McKinley (excellent adaption of Beauty and the Beast and an immersive read, I give it to friends often)

-Hellboy graphic novels (folklore and fairy tale inspired with a mix of steampunk and Lovecraftian horror, makes for a completely fun read)

-Porcelain by Karly Noelle Abreu (I recommend this to my friends often, it's my own collection of fairy tale and science fiction inspired steampunk stories and it's only a dollar)

For non books, I adore the Queens Dowry etsy shop: It's handmade vintage jewelry, usually fantasy pieces including mermaids, dragons and the like. I have a particularly beautiful "beauty and the beast" necklace from this shop.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays!

    Also, huzzah the books!
