You know, we’re never too old or too young to believe in fairies. Fairy. Faery. Fae. Fey. The Fair Folk. Whatever name you know them by, they have a consistent trait of having magical powers. 

Fairies are unpredictable and are known to tempt and deceive humans with food, music, or love, which the humans tend to later regret. 

Fairy folklore has been around for centuries and it’s safe to say that humans have been fascinated by faeries for a long time. To satisfy your interest, we’ve made a compilation of fairy books that feature these supernatural beings.

Topping the list is the book Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr, one of the books in the Wicked Lovely series. This novel follows the story of Aislinn who’s a normal teenager but is gifted with the ability to see faeries. 

She wishes she could live a normal life and be blind to their presence like normal teens. So she sets rules for herself to protect herself; she pretends not to see the faeries and when does see them, she doesn’t acknowledge their presence. 

Now, she’s facing a peculiar challenge where she’s been stalked by faeries, and one of them, a Faerie king; a wicked king who’s equally terrifying and alluring but wants to make her his queen whether she likes it or not. This book is a good read!

As against popular belief, the Atrahasis Epic by Ken Goudsward isn’t just a flood myth. Some even regard it as a creation myth. But this story doesn’t concern itself with the creation of the world or the universe. 

Instead, it dwells on the creation of culture and civilization. The created work in question includes humans but isn’t entirely limited to humans. 

This story aims to discuss ancient history from a perspective free of gender and religious biases and to integrate archeological and geological evidence that relates the story to specific dates in real history.
