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 :)

Cover Love

I usually don't post about book covers, but while I was updating my Thirsting for Thursday post, I stumbled upon Allyson James' second book in her Stormwalker series.

Stormwalker comes out on May 4th.  Here's the cover for it:

"Half-Navajo Janet Begay comes to Magellan to investigate the mysterious disappearance of the police chief's daughter. But the people of Magellan sense that Janet is not what she seems, and they're right.
Janet possesses extraordinary power which is tied to the storms that waft across the desert. The only person who can control her when she's caught in the storm's evocative power is Mick, a dark-haired, blue-eyed biker Janet can't seem to touch with her powers. He can weild fire and not get burned, and Janet's never sure where he goes when they're not together.
Together they investigate mysterious disappearances, which Janet fears are tied to her mother's people, the mythical gods from below the earth. They are helped along the way by Coyote and Crow, but these shapeshifting gods have their own agendas.
Book One of a new Contemp. Fantasy / Paranormal Romance series."

Comes out in November 2010

"When Mick goes missing, it's up to Janet to find him and figure out how to keep him safe from persecution by his own people. She'll need a little help from her friends, old and new: Nash and Coyote; Cassandra, a wicked Wicca; and a few strange beings who are stirring things up in Magellan.

Book Two of the Stormwalker series."

has been an excellent read thus far.  I've been somewhat distracted while reading it, just because I have a .pdf version of the novel (and I suck at reading stuff on my laptop).  However, despite all the distractions and interruptions, I'm loving the world James has created thus far.

Tell me you love these covers!  If you don't, then you must be insane!  The second is definitely my favorite so far.  I want a friggin poster of this!
