Friday Favorites: Magical Creatures

By: Stephanie Wyatt

Magical creatures are my favorite part of fantasy; I love reading books where magical creatures exist. I feel like it adds an extra layer to a story if you see a mermaid having a coffee at the local coffee shop.

You can find the full list of Friday Favorites prompts here.

Bloggers, the linky to add your post is at the bottom!

Here are some of my favorite magical creatures:


I did not specify mermaids because I always thought there should be a more gender neutral name for those who live under the sea. I had a teacher once who said that Disney did everything there was to do with merpeople because of Ariel so I have been on the hunt for books with merpeople ever since.


Okay, I know everyone loves Toothless from How To Train Your Dragon, and I am no exception, but I also think it’s cool that dragons protect treasure or precious things. I think I will try to read Eragon by Christopher Paolini again this year. I have started it a few times, but I haven’t been able to get into it.


I love horses, so a horse that flies would complete my life. I think more people should write about them. They would be useful for travel and getting you out of sticky situations.


I was convinced that after the Twilight and Vampire Diaries craze, we would see a rise in books about werewolves. They are just another race of creatures that exist in a magical city. There are a few books like Nightshade by Andrea Cremer where werewolves are the focus, but they are few and far between.


I feel like I have read a lot of books about fae the past few years. I love the different ways their cold, unforgiving nature is portrayed. I love the concept of the Sight and being trapped in fae lands if you consume anything offered. I like seeing characters adjust to new lands and a new society.
