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 :)

Temporary Hiatus

Book Faery will be on a temporary hiatus lasting for the month of May only. My finals are fast approaching, and the slave drivers (ahem, professors), have assigned so much work I'm literally drowning in it right now (who would have thought? Usually I'm drowning in books). There will be a few random updates here and there, including a giveaway or two with some awesome authors, but book reviews will be severely lacking this month from my end.
I've also noticed that, due to the stress from this semester, I've had zero motivation to read any books recently. That will change. I already feel it changing, as my mind rebels against academia. If you're an author/publisher who has sent me a book to review, no worries, my friend, I will read it and review it here in good time. My apologies for taking so long thus far.

While I've got your attention, I'll also apologize to those who have been trying to contact me via email; I've been on spring break right now, and went to Florida last week. It was extremely relaxing, but it also meant I had limited access to my email accounts. I will respond to your emails as soon as I can.

And finally: to all of you who have stuck with me and my blog for this long, especially through my sporadic updates this year...



  1. Thanks for letting us know. I can totally empathize with you, I had to take a break myself from my book review blog and youtube page for the same reason. But now I'm done! And it feels great :) Best of luck with exams.

  2. How about u hurry up and come back :P

  3. Lol, I'm working on it. Have started reading books again, at least. Baby steps! :)
