“A Long Time Ago, In a Land Far, Far Away…” Book Tag

Fairy tales are often a person’s first foray into storytelling. We learn a lot from fairy tales and develop ourselves as readers. So, when I saw this tag I knew I needed to complete it. Fairy tales are a special kind of magic than I fully appreciate.

ONCE UPON A TIME

At least in western fairy-tales, once upon a time is the most common and well-known opening for a traditional fairytale. What book opening makes you feel nostalgic?

“Mr and Mrs Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much.” – Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. 

IN A LAND FAR, FAR AWAY

Another common opening which speaks of far off places. What is a book set in a country completely unlike your own?

Red Rising by Piece Brown. I couldn’t get much further than Mars.

FROM MOUTH TO MOUTH

Our oldest fairy tales were told time and time again with no written record, told only in the spoken form. Everyone had their own version of the fairy tales. What is your favourite retelling?

                                         

THROUGH THE GENERATIONS

Fairy tales are told to us as children and so are passed on through the years. What is a book that someone beloved passed on to you?

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. My mom gave me this book since it was one of her favorite books. I absolutely love this story.

A SPECIAL STORY

Fairy tales are a big part of our culture and say a lot about who we are as people. What is your favourite fairytale and what does it say about you?

Cinderella has always been one of my favorite stories. My fondness has grown more after reading the Brother’s Grimm version. Perhaps that says that I have an odd fascination with dark stories.

AND THEY ALL LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER

Fairy tales tend to have happy endings. What is a book you’ll love forever?

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I have read this book numerous times and I love it more every time.
