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 :)

Cover Wars: Forgive My Fins versus Nightshade

Hello and welcome to the second installment of...
Cover Wars!
(inspired by Kate's Throwdown Thursday at The Neverending Shelf)

Cover Wars is a weekly event at Book Faery posted every Monday.  Two covers will have a "face off," and it will be up to the readers to decide who is the victor and who is the loser.  This is a great way for readers to have their voice be heard, while also promoting new/old books in the process.







Last week on Cover Wars, we had a face off between Siren by Tricia Rayburn and Firelight by Sophie Jordan.
 
The votes are in, the scores tallied up, and the winner of the first ever Cover Wars is...

Firelight



Week 2:
Forgive My Fins vs. Nightshade

A second set of YA head-shots.
Both covers have a second "element" to them.


forgivemyfins Nightshade

The mermaid, or the wolf?

Which do you choose, and why?

  5. I really love both covers, but I think that Nightshade is just a little more striking to me. I like warmer colors in general.

  6. I think I am going to have to be different and go with FMFs. I am always drawn to the greens....

  10. NIGHTSHADE! I'm not a fan of the blue lips on Forgive My Fins. And I love the model's eyes on Nightshade and the flowers with drops of blood LOL!

  11. This one is tough, but I'm going to have to go with Nightshade. I love the blood on the flowers, and the purple more than I like the green and blue.

  12. Very hard to choose, they're both really awesome covers, but I'd choose Forgive My Fins - I love the blue lips and just the look and feel of the cover - it's very evocative of a mermaid to me.

  17. Nightshade. They're both pretty, but Nightshade's cover says there's something awesome in here you want to read.

  18. I love them both, but I think I'm going to go with Mermaid on this one :-)

  19. I like Nightshade better. I think it's the colors.

  20. Nightshade - I'm not sure why but the blue lips on Forgive my fins creep me out a little. Also like the eyes and red on the white flowers of the Nightshade cover.

  21. Hi,
    I would choose Nightshade..The different eye color to the color of the book makes it just pop.

  23. Nightshade, because I like the contrast between the yellow eyes and purplish-blue of the rest of the cover. Besides, the blue lips on Forgive My Fins are kind of gaudy.

  24. This is a tough choice. I like both covers, but Nightshade wins for the contrast.

  26. I am voting for Nightshade, I like the flowers in the foreground.

  27. I like both covers but Nightshade just looks better. Sorry, FmF!!!

  28. I like the colors they used on Forgive My Fins, but they could have angled her face just a bit better. My vote goes to Nightshade, much more striking for me! ^_^

  29. Nightshade!
    I like both, but the blue lips in FMF are too distracting from the rest of the gorgeous cover.
