- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. The Queen would say this was highly appropriate given Eileen is full of both qualities.
- The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkein. Eileen likes a good quest herself so enjoys reading about others. She also likes characters who persist with their quest no matter what the difficulties and has a soft spot for hobbits.
- Magical Expectations. This is an annual publication in the Fairy Kingdom and is a report on how magic has developed in different species during the past year. Any new spells that have caught the public's attention (for good or evil) are reported in depth here.
- Historical Truths. These are Eileen's versions of Fairy Kingdom history. Eileen takes the view if she doesn't like her own books, nobody else will, ignoring the fact the Queen and her government were bound to dislike these for their direct criticism and questioning of the official version of events.
- The Best of P.G. Wodehouse. Eileen likes classic humour and believes in reading the best. She has good taste.
Eileen has always read widely both in the Fairy Kingdom and on Earth. She reads to relax, mainly after her evening bath, but always reads to develop her magical skills. The Fairy Kingdom produces a wide range of publications to encourage development of skills. Some of Eileen's favourite books are:-
I'm Allison Symes and write fairytales with bite, especially novels and short stories.
