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 :)

Summer 2012 Hiatus Update

I'm back from New Orleans and absolutely loving the much-needed break from any sort of responsibility grad-school-wise. I got an A in organic chemistry and also passed the food science self study exam I took, which I am thrilled about. Thank you for the comments and emails of support!! :D

I wanted to give a quick update for all those who are following, so as not to leave anyone in the dark:

Book Faery will continue to be on a hiatus until September. At that point, I will begin to post book reviews and will also be hosting authors again on the blog. There are a few scheduled already, I am super excited for them to stop by! I will also be hosting a few giveaways with some AAD goodies that I wanted to share with you all.

I think the remainder of August will be important for me to get back into the swing of things, and to also not feel pressured to constantly update as I scramble to read books. That's the worst feeling ever, and I would prefer getting some posts scheduled beforehand so that I have more time to focus on reading and reviewing. I think over the years, it's pretty easy to lose focus on what this blog is about, and since I am back, I want to start offering quality content again.

If you have sent me any sort of email within the past few months, I will be responding to your interview/review requests within the next few days. I apologize for the delay in responding.
