Obsessed With Fate: The Winx Saga on Netflix? Then Read These Books!
1. Wings of Ebony by J. Elle
Main character Rue discovers she’s half-human, half-god in this gorgeous debut fantasy. Not the same as being a fairy, but still an exciting story filled with magic and strife. Oh, and I can’t forget to mention that J. Elle has said that in earlier drafts of the story, Rue had wings. Just saying.
2. Legendborn by Tracy Deonn
Bree finds herself in the middle of a secret society, that demons are real, and it’s the descendants of King Arthur and his knights that keep the demon hoards in various other dimensions from breaking through the veil into our world. And her mother may or may not have been murdered… Trust me, stellar world building and magic explorations await you in Legendborn.
3. Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto

Looking for a trilogy that spotlights fierce female characters, interwoven timelines, and animal magic? The Crown of Feathers trilogy has you covered.

We can’t have faeries without talking about the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. Clary and friends literally enter the Fae kingdom through an entrance in Central Park in City of Ashes. With Downworlders, Shadowhunters, and endless ships to fall in love with, the Mortal Instruments series is worth a read!
