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 FINAL POLL is NOW UP!


The votes are now in. And WOW--there were over 300 votes!  I've tallied all the members who have filled out a form to see which of you automatically win 5 entries per character (basically who made it into the final 6).  I've also checked over the votes, and we have our Top 6 characters!

Below you will see a second poll.  Make sure you vote for your top three characters so we can determine who beats all the rest!  Will it be the men, or the women?

It's up to you to decide.

And remember: you have until August 31st to make a blog post about the voting.  (read this post for more details & for a list of prizes).

Blog post = 10 guaranteed extra entries into the grand prize giveaway.
Each comment (unlimited) = 1 guaranteed extra entry into the grand prize giveaway.

And just in case you missed my other post about it: there is only one winner.  That's 6 books, $45 in gift cards, a swag pack, and a few other items.
