Books: Faeries

Perhaps the most exciting things about faery books (or fairy, or faerie, or fae) is the multitude of ways in which authors interpret them. Some authors write faeries as the winged creatures of childhoos fantasies, others stick close to the Celtic mythology surrounding the creatures, and still others keep their versions somewhere in the middle or go off in completely original directions. This list keeps track of all the YA faery books I have read and recommend.
