Faery Book Reviews (part 1)

  1. The Fairy Bible by Teresa Moorey: One of my favorite books of faerie information. Descriptions of many different kinds of faeries, traditional tales and multiple recipes. Information feels complete without getting too lengthy.
  2. The Faerie Book by Samantha Gray: General information about faeries and a nice overview about different types of fae and folklore. The beginning won't keep your attention if you already have moderate knowledge of faery lore, but you can skip to the next sections on faeries from around the world and their tales.
  3. A Complete Guide to Faeries and Magical Beings by Cassandra Eason: Contains lots of detailed folklore and history. If you want an in-depth guide, this is a very good place to start. Explains different theories and views of the fae.
  4. The Complete Book of Flower Fairies by Cicely Mary Baker: Even though Baker states she never saw faeries, the art and poems are still beautiful. If you are interested in flower faeries, this book is perfect to help you appreciate them and their flowers.
  5. Fairies 101 by Doreen Virtue: Not much information, but many personal stories of different people’s interactions/sightings with faeries, which are inspiring to read.
  6. Fairies: A Spotter’s Handbook by Alison Maloney: This is a children’s book but it has athentic information about a few different faeries and the things they like. Plus it contains cute little faerie spells you can do!
  7. Good Faeries / Bad Faeries by Brian Froud: Not your Cicely Mary Baker faeries, a book of portraits featuring some quirky and unique fae! Contains stories from the author’s personal experience too.
  8. 13 Treasures by Michelle Harrison: A YA book based on traditional faery lore. The faeries in it are of the dangerous, tricky kind, and you can feel the haunting atmosphere of strange creatures lurking at the bottom of overgrown gardens.
  9. Faery Dance by Amy Brown: Any Amy Brown art book is good in my opinion! Lovely paintings and cute poem about a girl recalling meeting faeries in her childhood.
  10. The Faerie Handbook by Faery Magazine: With enchanting photos and beautiful illustrations, this is both an art book and informational guide. Features different faery artist's work and many delightful recipes to try.
