#FaeFriday: Appeasing the Fae

#FaeFriday is a weekly book tag created by Kristy at CaffeinatedFae, who is also the creator of the tag image above. 

Here’s the rules:

  • Link back to this page on Caffeinated Fae.
  • If the prompt idea comes from another blog, link to that blog as well.
  • Use #FaeFriday when posting to social media so we can all find each other!
  • Participate when you can and have fun with the prompt!


Tomorrow is Halloween, and Samhain celebrations will start tomorrow as well. It is thought that Samhain is when the Fae walk among us. Fae are not to be tampered with, and it is believed that the fairies & spirits needed to be appeased during Samhain. So, the prompt this week is: 

If you were to leave out one book to appease the Fae, what book would it be?

This is a hard one because I have so many books that I love but I know others haven’t. I think I am going to stick with the Halloween theme and choose a book that I think would appease them because of the macabre and dark themes. And I feel that the fae would love a good horror story. 

The Terrifying Tales of Edgar Allan Poe

This collection features some of my favorite Poe stories, including The Tell-Tale Heart, The Cask of Amontillado, The Masque of the Red Death, and The Pit and the Pendulum. If you have read any of Poe’s stories you will see that these are some of the some of the dark and revengeful ones, which I think the fae would approve of.
