A Note:


I once told myself: IF I am accepted into grad school, this blog would no longer be updated. As it turns out, in April, I received news of my acceptance for the Fall 2013 semester, where I will attain a Master's degree of Science in Nutrition.

Running a blog, as many of you may already know, is a demanding side job once the excitement wears off. And once I fell out of the blogging community's loop (have you SEEN how many blogs there are now? Wow!), it was like the kiss of death. Despite my best efforts, I couldn't get into a blogging routine once this happened due to the disconnect I felt from the community.

So I took a break. I struggled with the loss and with missing my blog. And then I realized I didn't have to run Book Faery to still be a book reviewer; I could read my books and post reviews online. I'm still a book review blogger, just not in the traditional sense.

I'll still be online. You can chat with me on Twitter, where I'll be posting links to my reviews and talking books. I'll also be posting links to nutrition articles. And if you'd like to connect with me where I guarantee I will post reviews, just add me as a friend on Goodreads.

So that's all, folks! It's been a fun and amazing journey, and I thank you all for listening to my thoughts about books. I hope we all can keep in touch elsewhere :)

Slacker Saturday

Just got back from class a few hours ago, and my arms and legs feel like noodles.  I pretty much power-walked 18 blocks in 22 minutes from Grand Central Terminal to my college, and then did it again back to GCT.  I'm also running on 4 hours of sleep.  Yay!

Anyway, I've been slightly busy these past couple of days due to that evil institution known as college.  So, I've decided to make a quick post about what I'm in the process of writing a review for, and what I plan on reading next.

I'd love to hear your input about any of these books if you've read them, and if you have any suggestions for books I should consider checking out next!

Currently Reviewing:

1.  Dragon Actually by G.A. Aiken
Part 2 of my review: Chains and Flames
2.  She's No Faerie Princess by Christine Warren

Reading Next:

1. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
Had this for a while in my TBR pile, so I figured now is a good a time as any to start reading it.


1. Daughter of the Blood by Anne Bishop
YES!  I can't start Shalador's Lady until March 2nd, so I've decided I'm going to re-read this whole series before said date just so I can reacquaint myself with this beautifully woven world :)

Thanks to Amy C. @ Romance Book Wyrm for posting about BJT so much that I finally gave in to restart it again hehe.

So that's it for now.  What books have you guys read/bought this week?


  1. Hello, Tori!

    There are two things in this post that I love...Dragon Actually and Daughter of the Blood! I just love GA Aiken's dragons. They are the most comical relationship I've ever read. What a Dragon Should Know (Gwenvael's story) is simply amazing! I wish she would focus on this series more than her others!

    And then to hear you are going to reread Daughter of the Blood and the others! I can't wait to read Shalador's Lady. I really enjoyed the relationship between Gray and Cassidy, and am really looking forward to see where that relationship goes.

  2. Well I have not started reading anything yet... But I want to say that I am very proud of you... for power walking (on 4 hrs of sleep, lol) So, keep up the great work!!!
    And I love what you are reading!
    Have a great rest of the weekend!

  3. of the books you listed I've only read Shiver and I loved it.Can't wait to hear what you think of it.
    I read Deadly Little Secrets this week and it was a really good book.Moving onto The Vampire Queen's Servant by Joey W. Hill.

  4. @Amy: I absolutely loved Chains and Flames because of Aiken's dragons. Like you said, they're hilarious! But for me, the humans are a bit weak and boring. I feel like Annwyl kind of ruined Fearghus for me, which is a huge disappointment, because I loved him in the beginning. Her story is what's also making me somewhat reluctant to continue the series, even though Rhiannon more than made up for what Annwyl lacked.

    Gray and Cassidy were so sweet. I'm so excited to fly through this series again just so I'm caught up for Shalador's Lady. I can't wait
    to see what's going to happen next!

    @Cecile: Hah! Thanks ;) I try to walk to school just so I can be a bit healthier. Plus avoiding crazy taxi drivers and bikers in Manhattan definitely is a workout in itself!

    @Elaing8: I've heard such great things about Shiver, so I'm super excited to start this! I haven't heard of any of the books you've mentioned, what're they about?
