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 :)

Please refer to my CONTEST POLICY and the BOTS GRAND PRIZE GIVEAWAY posts for further details about general giveaway guidelines, and about US, Canadian, and International participants.

A link to this post will be provided in the sticky up towards the top right of my blog.  If you click on the banner for this event, it will take you to this post.  If you ever miss a day, you can refer back here (which will be updated daily with links) to catch up!

***During the duration of Battle of the Sexies, no Cover Wars!, In My Mailbox(es), and the Faerie's Contest Finds will be posted.  Since there will be guest appearances and giveaways every single day, I do not want these to interfere with the event.  Thirsting for Thursday has been posted on July 29th (that's one week in advance) to make up for August's new releases.  I will, however, be posting one or two book reviews (for new releases in August).

Upon the end of the Battle of the Sexies event, I will begin posting everything once more.

Many apologies if this upsets anyone.

  1. Just wondering why Acheron from the dark-hunters series isn't on the poll.

  2. If I put every single hero on the list, it would have been over 70 characters. I had to narrow both lists down. Sorry

  3. I would probably pick Tess or Gabrielle in the Midnight Breed series over Elise.

    Tori, how would you know which ones did we voted for?

  7. The first time I mentioned this event, I provided a form for everyone to fill out. That listed all the characters, and everyone had to predict who they thought would make it into the finals. If you filled out the form, that's how I know.

    I also included the blog post & commenting entries because not everyone filled out a form. And not everyone would have guessed which characters would make it into the final six. This is just another opportunity to win entries you might not otherwise win via the form :)

  9. I should of found your blog earlier. This is a great giveaway. Wonderful prizes.
