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 :)

BOTS 2: Jill Myles

by Jill Myles 

My favorite sidekick of all time has to be Andrea Nash from the Kate Daniels series. Here's the reason why!

5) Strong, smart, and capable -- Sometimes the sidekick is in the books purely just to show how ridiculously awesome the main character is. Andrea totally holds her own, though. She has different strengths - and different weaknesses than Kate. She's able to recite Order law by heart, isn't afraid to punch a bitch (remember the scene with the hot tub?) and is an Order Knight with a career all her own.

4) She gets to shag Raphael - This really needs no explaining. Raphael is sex on a stick. He is in love with Andrea. They make out. It's really awesome.

3) Andrea has a weakness for romance novels - As a romance writer, I cannot fault Andrea's taste in such things. She is a big fan of Lorna Sterling, and Raphael uses this weakness to make her melt. It's an adorable scene.

2) Andrea is a gun junkie -- Some sidekicks have a thing for comic books or porn. Andrea loves guns. How can you not love a cute, chirpy blonde that loves guns?

1) She's able to call Kate on her shit. That's what friends are for, right? So when Kate needs a hand, Andrea's there for her. When Kate needs a pep talk - or even a swift boot to the butt, Andrea's there. And Kate is there for Andrea as well. They're a team that's ridiculously fun to read on the page.

Some cover flats and... 

Who Knew An Angel Could Get A Girl In So Much Devilish Trouble?
Jackie Brighton woke up in a Dumpster this morning, and her day has only gotten weirder. Her familiar B-cups have somehow become double Ds, her sex drive is insatiable, and apparently she had her fi rst one-night stand ever...with a fallen angel. All she remembers is gorgeous Noah's oddly hypnotic blue eyes...and then a dark stranger whose bite transformed her into an immortal siren with a sexy Itch. With help from Noah, Jackie begins to adapt to her new lifestyle — until she accidentally sends Noah into the deadly clutches of the vampire queen and lands herself in a fi erce battle for an ancient halo with the queen's wickedly hot righthand man. Who just happens to be the vampire who originally bit her. How's a girl supposed to save the world when the enemy's so hard to resist?
