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 :)

Cover Wars: The Immortal Rules vs Vampire Shift

Cover Wars
(inspired by Kate's Throwdown Thursday at The Neverending Shelf)

Cover Wars is a weekly post occurring every Monday at Book Faery.
Two covers will have a "face off," and it will be up to the readers to
decide who is the victor and who is the loser.  This is a great way for
readers to have their voice be heard, while also promoting new/old books
in the process.

Last time we had a showdown between The Mephisto Covenant and Entasy.

The Winner:
We had a tie! If I were to be tie-breaker, I'd go with Mephisto, but probably mostly because I've read it, and really enjoyed it! 

The Immortal Rules VS Vampire Shift

Vote for your favorite crying vampire in the comments below! 


  1. The Immortal Rules. The Vamp cover model's eye makeup reminds me of a centipede... EWWWW

  2. I don't know... I JUST DON'T KNOW...... okay, The Immortal Rules.

  3. Immortal Rules for sure. Not only does it have more information on the cover (although not too much to be distracting to the reader), the Vampire looks much less dolled up and realistic. Both are good covers, but T.I.R is better.

  4. I vote for The immortal rules. Much prettier cover. That bloody tear on the other cover is just too much. See the bloodclots? Icky!

  5. I vote for Vampire Shift. The colors pop more and are not faded like Immortal Rules (which while is nice I don't think it works).
