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 :)

Another "Mini" Contest

Like I really needed one more on my blog now, right?

I'm in a bind.  I need a new button, so I'm going to hold a contest for it.  The prize isn't much, I apologize, but it's a prize nonetheless.  Basically this is a separate contest, but will be an addition to the 140 Follower Prize List. What exactly does that mean?

The person who makes the button I like the most will get one book of their choice from my 140 Follower Giveaway.  (does not include grand prize)  You can see all of the books to choose from here.

My preferences:
  • The button has something with a fairy on it.  (This is actually something that I majorly want)
  • My favorite color is red.  I don't require that color for the button, but I guess it's a hue to start off with if you're stumped?
  • I'd prefer something clean and crisp.
  • Width: 175 max.  Too much wider and it won't fit in my sidebar and a lot of other sidebars.
  • Height: No preference.
Of course, those are just preferences.  You could do something totally new and original.  Have fun with it :)

Contest Guidelines:
  1. Open to everyone.  If you're a Canada/International winner, you have to pay for your own shipping.  Sorry, but funds are limited, and since my other giveaway has 10 winners, I hope you'll understand.
  2. Contest ends either when I find the button I want, or by May 31st.
  3. You can submit as many designs as you want.  Just... try not to spam my inbox if you send a bunch.
  4. I ask that all submissions be sent to xlilangeltorix[at]gmail[dot]com.

Happy Mother's Day everyone!
