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 :)

Introducing: The Battle of the Sexies 2!

Hey everyone, and welcome to The Battle of the Sexies 2: Sidekicks!

If you were a blog follower this time last year, then you will be familiar with the formatting of this event. For the rest of you newbies (and I say that with molto love <3), then WELCOME!! Please familiarize yourself with this post; it may end up being your best friend during the event :)

This is the BOTS in a nutshell: all throughout the month of August--and perhaps a few days into September--there will be daily guest posts and giveaways sponsored by some kick ass authors. This year's BOTS theme is based on those sexy sidekicks we all know and love. Each guest author will be describing either a secondary character from his/her novel, or he/she will discuss a character from another book/series/tv show.

Each giveaway will be included at the end of the guest post. To be entered, please read the giveaway guidelines carefully in order to ensure that you qualify for that day's prize, and then leave a comment with your information. Some prizes are international, some are for US only, and some are for US &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp; Canada only.

If there's a particular prize you're dying for, I've also provided the usual extra entries opportunities. It's up to you, and being a blog follower IS NOT REQUIRED. However, you WILL need to check back here during September to see if you are a giveaway winner. I will not be contacting winners.

This post is the "mother post," if you will. I will be linking to each individual guest post and/or giveaway here. I'll try to make the effort to update this daily, but at the very least, it will be updated every weekend.
