Tuesday Trends #1

I am starting "Tuesday Trends" which you can probably guess that I will post on Tuesdays, hence the name. If you haven't noticed, there are several trends in the book world/blogging about book world that change constantly. And from what I see/hear about-I will post in this thing I call "Tuesday Trends". It will be about anything from plot lines, characters, genre's in books to what's really popular in the blogging world. Hopefully this will be lots of fun, and I would love to hear your thoughts about what you think are the trends. So comments are very much appreciated.

Tuesday Trends #1
Topic: Fairies, Faeries and Faery or Fairy

First of all, how in the world do you spell it? Because when I was little and used to read books about the tooth fairy-I could have sworn it was spelled "fairy" not faery or faeries, so what's the difference? And I'm pretty sure "fay" has something to do with the whole fairy world, too. So if anyone knows about these different spellings-I would love if you cleared it up for me; because I'm super curious.

So Twilight came out, right? And there was this whole thing about vampires. And then werewolves got very popular, and all of a sudden this last year-everything is Fairy related. I don't get it. Every paranormal book has a fairy in it, and it's starting to make me a little nausous. I first of all aren't too big a fan of them. And before you go all "you have to give them a chance" on me, I must tell you-I already did, three times. I tried out Melissa Marr's books about fairies and they were way too "out there" for me. I mean how can you relate to anything about fairies? They're just so...unrelatable.

So I think fairy or faery books are really the trend right now-else they probably wouldn't be coming out with so many. And if you don't believe me I will list a few for you:

1.) Fragile Eternity by Melissa Marr
2.) Wings by Aprilynne Pike
3.) Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog
4.) Bones of Faerie by Janni Lee Simner

Those were just a few, and I'm sure there are plenty more. So why the hype about fairies or faeries? You tell me.
