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 :)

Battle of the Sexies Grand Prize Giveaway Update!

Hey everyone, I'd just like to announce that we have our first blog post up for the polls!

Just in case you guys missed the section about earning extra entries for this giveaway in the Intro Post, I'll say it again:

I initially had the grand prize giveaway set up so that if you did not guess which characters would make it into the final six, you would not earn any entries into the giveaway.  But then when I thought about it, I felt a bit bad.  So I've added one extra option...

  • For Bloggers:  Make a blog post about The Battle of the Sexies, and try to convince people to vote for your picks in the polls.  Be sure to link back to this post.  If you do a blog post, please provide a link to it by commenting ON THIS POST.

    Making a blog post about this will earn 10 entries into the grand prize giveaway. 
  • For Everyone:  Leave a meaningful comment on the blogs that post about this event (links will be included at the bottom of the introduction post).

    Commenting will earn you one entry per blog. 

    There is no limit on this (please note that spamming comments will not be counted as entries).

And just in case people didn't see what was in the grand prize pack....

  • $20 Gift Card from Indiependent Books
  • $25 Gift Card to Book Swim
  • A book with a secret heart compartment cut out of the middle and lined with red velvet courtesy of the Etsy shop: Book Works
  • Either an 8x8 or 8x10 print from the Etsy shop: Erin Reynolds Photography

    Signed/unsigned copies of: 
  • The Devil Inside by Jenna Black 
  • Midnight's Daughter by Karen Chance (signed)
  • Embrace the Night by Karen Chance (signed)
  • Embers by Laura Bickle
  • Blood Law by Jeannie Holmes (signed)
  • Under the Northern Lights by Vivian Arend
  • Swag pack from: Karen Chance, Faith Hunter, Jenna Black, Leah Cypess, Moira Rogers, Nalini Singh + more.

All of that is for ONE winner.  Initially I had said two, but I'm putting it back to one. 

Amy from A Simple Love of Reading has done the first post for this.  Which means you guys can go and comment if you'd like to earn extra entries.... or you can check out her post and use it as a guideline for your own post if you decide you want to try and sway the crowds.

**If you can't remember who you initially voted for on the forms, leave your email address in the comments and I'll respond back to you with your 6 picks**

If you haven't yet voted for your top 3 heroes and heroines yet, I highly suggest you do so!

  1. I find myself forgetting who I voted for, terrible I know. I know I had to vote for Lachlain as I love Highlanders. :)
