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 Survey

Hey there everyone! I'm in the process of drawing winners for the month long event, so each daily giveaway, and the grand prize winner, will all be announced by the end of the week.

I hope everyone had an awesome time participating in this event! I know I had a lot of fun doing it, and learning more about a bunch of great authors is always exciting :)  Some of you were pretty sneaky in your approach towards getting people to vote.  It was so amusing to watch!

Because this event took a bit of time to plan and organize, and because there was such a huge turnout, I have included a survey form to fill out. Please fill it out! Your answers will help me decide if events like these are worth pursuing in the future here. I'd also like to make them more fun and enjoyable for everyone involved, so your input is extremely important!

If you fill it out, thank you so, so much! Likewise, if you guys would like to mention anything else, feel free to email me with questions, concerns, etc, or leave a comment on this post.

Thanks again, and have a great day everyone! :)
