A Project Fairy Tale Wrap-Up

It is with mixed emotions that I conclude Project: Fairy Tale here at Late Nights with Good Books. On the one hand, I loved being able to learn more about the "Tam Lin" story through research and reading so many retellings. It was also, however, quite exhausting and time-consuming. I'm definitely ready for a break.

In case you missed any of them, below is a round-up of all of my blog posts for Project: Fairy Tale.

I've learned a lot about "Tam Lin" and the many other fairy tales/fables discussed on the blogs of other participants, and I hope you did as well!

Thanks again to Allison for putting all of this together. Once again, here's a link to the Project: Fairy Tale Master Post. It's been fun!

Amanda loves few things better than sitting down with a cup of tea and a book. She frequently stays up far too late, telling herself she just needs to finish one more page. When she's not wrapped up in the stories of others, Amanda works as a children's librarian in a public library.
