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 :)

2) your answer to the following question: "What is your favorite/least favorite element of the WRECKED book cover?"

Secrets of the sea have never been sexier than this.

Ever since the death of her parents, Miranda has lived on Whym Island, taking comfort in the local folklore, which claims a mysterious sea witch controls the fate of all on the island and in its surrounding waters. Sometimes it’s just easier to believe things are out of your control.    

But then a terrible boating accident takes the lives of several of her friends, and Miranda is rescued by a mysterious boy who haunts her dreams. Consumed by guilt from the accident, she finds refuge in late-night swims—and meets Christian, a boy who seems eerily familiar, but who is full of mystery: He won’t tell her where he is from, or why they can only meet at the beach. But Miranda falls for him anyway…and discovers that Christian’s secrets, though meant to protect her, may bring her nothing but harm.    

Seductive and compelling, Wrecked brings a contemporary, paranormal twist to a classic enchanting tale.

Wrecked by Anna Davies - Extended Excerpt


  1. I like the water/waves directly underneath them the best and the scaley skin on him the least (although I'm sure that's a hint as to his character!)

  2. I like the cover all than how dark it is. Thanks for the giveaway.

  3. I like the water droplets but I really don't like how dark the overall cover it. It is so hard to see the people.

  4. I like the water waves at the bottom of the cover and I love how dark it is what I'm not a fan of is the fact that they show the faces when I read I like to envision the characters as how I see them.

  5. I LOVE the water - the quality of the water against the people is beautiful. I don't really like that her eyes are downcast - although I'm pretty suer the publisher meant for that. But I think she should be closing her eyes qith her head against him, or look at him, not necessarily up at his face.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. I like the light and dark shadow contrast of the book's cover. It kind of cool how we get to see the people as half lit, half darkened. It adds a touch of mystery
    Thank you for the chance to win!

  7. The book doesn't look like a YA anymore with it having the girl look naked as she's holding the guy's arm. That's my only complaint. Other than that, I like it.

  8. I like how dark the cover is. I especially like the bubbles and the waves.


  9. The water and the darkness are my favorite parts.


  10. I think my favorite element is the color combination and my least favorite is nothing... I love it!


  11. My favorite thing about the cover is the unique use of water, but I don't really care for there being nothing but water bubbles on black near the bottom. It's a bit confusing.
