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 :)

BBAW: Best New Book Blog - Shortlist Nomination

I wasn't originally going to post this, but I figured what the heck, why not?

First of all, congratulations to all the other people who have either made the shortlist for the Best New Book Blog or another category!  The Best New Book Blog hat includes: The New Dork Review of Books, There's a Book, Amy Reads, Amused by Books, Dark Faerie Tales, Iris on Books, and, if you'd like to see my post about this, Book Faery as its finalists.  The only other blog I follow on this list is Angela's Dark Faerie Tales, but the other blogs look interesting too.

Until Sept 6, people participating in this event will be voting.  Then the final phase is....
Phase Five—Winners Announced!
The winners will be announced throughout Book Blogger Appreciation Week on September 13-17.
