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 :)

Reviewer Wanted

I've been making a few promises as of late, which include:
  • an updated blog look by January 1st, 2012;
  • consistent/frequent updates and reviews within the next month;
  • a new reading challenge for 2012 (which will be happening, and which you will be learning more about later in December);
  • a potential film review day once a week.
As I sat wondering how else I could make Book Faery more appealing to readers, I realized that, instead of adding more memes and weekly events, maybe book reviews would be a better option. After all, this is a book review blog, and reviews are what most people want, right?

Feb 2012 will be BF's 2nd blogoversary... and because of that, I figured it's time to expand a little bit more.

While we've got a number of awesome guest reviewers on the blog, I'm in search for someone who is interested in potentially becoming a more frequent reviewer for Book Faery.


1) Must be able to produce a well-written, thoughtful book review.
Plot summary is a no-no. We like it when people expand on their thoughts. No author bashing allowed by any means. 

2) Not presently running your own book review site. 
I am greedy and want your pretty little reviewer-ness all to myself.  

3) Able to read and review a minimum of 3-4 titles per month. 
4) Must be able to post reviews in a timely manner. 

ie: ARC reviews before the book's release date (if you attain an ARC), book reviews within a few weeks of attaining the books sent to you. In other words, meet deadlines for the books you receive.

And of course, you have to love the book genres we review here!

What do you get from all of this, aside from getting your name on the blog? Free books!
