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 :)

Please Welcome Book Faery's New Reviewer!

I'm not sure if many of you remember, but I posted a reviewers wanted ad a few weeks ago. Well, the search is over!

Thank you SO much to everyone who took the time to apply for the reviewer position! I was floored by your the enthusiasm and flattered that people were interested in my blog :) 

I've gone through each application and have decided which blogger I feel would compliment Book Faery the most. Since I have a tendency to read a mix of YA and adult, and because I know many of you love your YAs, our newest reviewer will be focusing more on this genre. That means more popular and diverse titles for you all to hear about.

Please give a warm welcome to our newest YA reviewer, Alice! (you can follow her on twitter here)

Still stuck at school and not at all liking it, Alice reads and reviews books to get away from her boring reality. A not-so-typical Aussie girl, Alice doesn't enjoy the great outdoors very much and thus has far too much time on her hands. When not reading or working, she is scouting for great bargains on the Internet.

Welcome to the blog, my Aussie friend :D
