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 :)

The Battle of the Sexies (August 2010)


I've decided to do my first announcement for the event I have planned for the entire month of August.  I gave a hint or two about it during my IMM and on Twitter, but aside from that, I tried to keep it on the DL.

Here it is!  Starting on August 1st, and lasting until August 31st, I will be having a number of authors and bloggers doing guest posts and daily giveaways that you all can participate in.  Each post will be focusing on certain elements of books: particularly, paranormal alpha males and heroines.  I will also be having a grand prize giveaway, which you can start preparing for now.

So what can you do to prepare for this second giveaway?  The first thing you should do, if you would like to be entered, is to...
Don't wait, because at midnight on August 1st, the form will be closed, and no new entries will be accepted.

EDIT (June 15th- 4:37pm EST) Due to some confusion: 
Check out this post for a more detailed explanation of the Grand Prize Giveaway.

You can find a link to this post in my sidebar, so please spread the word to everyone else so that they can enter!  I will also be including the image code so that you can include the super awesome button Beth from Maybe Tomorrow? made.  It'd be awesome if you could add it to your sidebars.  (Only if you want, of course.  I would really appreciate it though!)

And now, here is a list of some of the participating authors:
  • Alexandra Ivy
  • Anastasia Hopcus
  • Andrea Cremer
  • Anita Clenney
  • Artist Arthur
  • Carolyn Crane
  • Carrie Jones
  • Dakota Banks
  • DB Reynolds
  • Jaye Wells

Plus many more! Make sure you stay tuned for the updates, and I hope you're all looking forward to the month of August :)

Attention authors: THIS IS NOT STRICTLY FOR PARANORMAL AUTHORS!  The event's theme is paranormal alpha males and heroines, but the posts are open to everyone.

There are still spots open if you would like to do a guest post.  Likewise, if you would be interested in contributing a signed book and/or swag for the giveaways.  Please contact me at: tori.book.faery[at]gmail[dot]com.  Debut authors who do not have a book out yet (this includes 2011 debut authors) are more than welcome to participate also, the more, the merrier!


  1. Taking only three is a torture =( I would've easily picked 5 or 6 of each sex lol

  2. Yeah, I had to narrow the list down from about 50 choices for each sex to 30 lol... not easy, let me tell you.

  3. This looks really cool...I'm amazed at how you can put all this together! Superwoman!! :-D

  4. This sounds very cool, I can't wait to see what's in store! (",)

    Just voted, and I'm *SUPER HAPPY* that you included Barrons! *swoon* Tee Hee, you don't get more Alpha than Barrons ...

  5. Hah, superwoman. You're silly :P I'm not entirely sure how I've managed to get everything this organized thus far. Total mystery.

    Bella ,I asked, and you all voted. It pays to answer the "You Decide" sections when I post them ;)

  6. This is going to be so fun! I think I understand what I'm supposed to do....lol Basically I am taking the 6 characters that I picked and rank them?

  7. Yep! Three ladies, three men. If those 6 choices of yours were in a faceoff, which do you think would dominate?

    I'll be doing another post discussing this in more detail if you want to hold off til then :) But I think you got it lol

  8. or you could rank them from #1 fav to least fav out of them all

  9. Sounds like a blast hun!!!

  11. It was so hard to pick! I can't wait to know the results!>_<

  12. This sounds like so much fun! I can hardly wait til August!

  13. This looks like it's going to be so much fun! Can't wait to see what you've got planned!

  14. Hehe, I hope it is! Thanks again for the smexy buttons! <3
