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 :)

A Thank You Post

I just wanted to say WOW and thank you SO much to everyone who voted for me over at Mindful Musing's blog! 

Book Faery ended up being 5th place for "Best New Blog in 2010".  There were a lot of wonderful new up and coming 2010 blogs, and I'm shocked that I actually scored so well.  Considering the fact that I've been a bit bad about posting consistently lately, I'm surprised anyone still remembered me lol!  Thank you to everyone who voted for my blog and who supports me time and time again.  I love you guys!

I also wanted to say that, in less than a month, Book Faery will be turning one.  ONE!!  I'm completely shocked I've lasted this long.  There were some days where I seriously considered quitting blogging, but I'm glad I didn't.  I've got a huge giveaway (omg, I know, I've been talking about a huge giveaway for a while now, but this is for realsies... I actually have some money!) planned for the anniversary, so stay tuned. 


  1. It's great that you got fifth place! I didn't vote (mainly because I had no idea there were any awards, lol!), but you're definitely in my Top Ten list!

    Congrats. :)

  2. I bet you you'd be in an even higher place if there wasn't that old blog/new blog situation!
    Anyway, no matter the result, you know we love ya <3

  3. Thank you Alice! :) I'm flattered you enjoy my blog that much.

    Thanks Book Monster!

    Yeah, I got switched after I submitted my vote lol, and all the votes I had already received were transferred with me. Oh well, it was still fun!
    <3 you too my Greekie :D

  4. You definitely deserve the award, Tori. Congrats!
