A Note:

6/2/13

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 :)

In My Mailbox (5)

In My Mailbox
is hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren


Posting my IMM a day early because I want to spend as much time as I possibly can reading tomorrow.  And yes--I'm FINALLY on spring break!  Here's to getting a lot of reading done to make up for the lack of updates the past two weeks.

Can I just say that I am SO excited about the book I got this week?  Well.  I AM SO EXCITED!   I've physically received three books in the mail (two are for a HUGE giveaway that will be posted sometime later this week, yay!) but this one book...

Here is is!  I've received The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker from the lovely Leanna.  Thank you so much Leanna!



I cannot wait to start reading this book!  Expect a review up soon for it :)  Leanna was also kind enough to send me a bookmark, and the covers for her next two books which will be published later this year.  Curious about those dates?

The Darkly Luminous Fight for Persephone Parker

A Midwinter Fantasy




Reviews this week:

Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six.  She has never quite fit in at school...or at home.

When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change.


But she could never have guessed the truth--that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war.  Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face....and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.




Other Updates:


1.  Thirsting for Thursday: The Monthly Book Release Update
This is basically a new feature I've added to my blog.  After being tired of checking, and checking, and checking the same dates for books that I'm anticipating, I've decided to compile a list of new and upcoming books, along with their release date.  This will be updated on the first Thursday of every month, with pictures of the covers that will be coming out that month.  Expect the next update to this on Thursday, April 1st!


2.  Another Giveaway

Did you enjoy the Georgina Kincaid giveaway I hosted earlier?  Do you want free books?  Who doesn't!?  I won't say much about this now, simply because I'm still finalizing everything.  Just be sure to keep checking back to Book Faery this week.  I'll be posting up a huge new giveaway that you won't want to miss! 


3.  The Triple Threat
Are you a fan of Twilight, Supernatural, and/or The Vampire Diaries?  Well then you won't want to miss this upcoming week-long event!  There will be plenty of discussions--and yes, GIVEAWAYS!!!  Yours truly will be posting during this event on Thursday, April 1st.  This is a post all you Twilight fans will definitely be interested in.  Which team are you on: Team Edward, or Team Jacob?! 

Here is the tentative schedule we've got for it so far.  Check back to Book Faery for the finalized schedule later on!
