1) I am terribly sorry for the lack of updates recently. I've hit a reading slump, and while I do have a few reviews to write, my summer Chemistry class is coming to an end... meaning I have been drowning in lab reports and preparing for my final--which is this Thursday (yes, I am freaking out). Next week, I begin Studio Art and Biology... which means a fuller schedule, but perhaps it will be the distraction I need to make me appreciate all these wonderful books again.
2) I got a job!! At the start of August, I will be working on weekends at a cupcake store. I may also be social networking for the business a bit, so if there is any fun and exciting news (like maybe... free cupcakes or gift cards or baking tutorials or recipes) then expect to hear about it on Book Faery :) I know a lot of my Twitter followers always have to listen to me tweet gush about this "awesome dessert," or something that I've made, and some have asked me for recipes. Recipes from an established pastry chef sound way better than the things I find online.
3) The Battle of the Sexies will be occurring this August!! Stay tuned for a blog post later this week with more information.
4) We have a contest winner! The lucky winner of Merrie DeStefano's FEAST prize pack is...
