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 :)

Blog Tour: Darkness Falls series by Krystal Wade & Giveaway

Let's see . . . what's next. Well, I'm not planning any more books in the Darkness Falls series, but I have considered spin offs . . . considered being the keyword. I love the world of Encardia, and I love the other, connected worlds. But for now, I'm ready to move on.

And move on, I have (channeling Yoda!)

I'm writing a book called Shattered Secrets (working title). This story is about a girl who believes her biggest problems involve boys and college applications, but she's wrong.

Very, very wrong.

Her problems involve boys, college applications, and kidnappers.

And these aren't ordinary kidnappers! They reveal more about her than anyone close to her ever has, sending her on a mission of self-discovery, one full of secrets waiting to be shattered.

But will the world survive if she does?

I posted the prologue for this novel on my blog (http://krystal-wade.com/im-the-next-big-thing/)

About Krystal Wade - website, Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads
Krystal Wade can be found in the sluglines outside Washington D.C. every morning, Monday through Friday. With coffee in hand, iPod plugged in, and strangers–who sometimes snore, smell, or have incredibly bad gas–sitting next to her, she zones out and thinks of fantastical worlds for you and me to read. How else can she cope with a fifty mile commute?

Good thing she has her husband and three kids to go home to. They keep her sane.

Add Wilde's Meadow to your Goodreads shelf

Happy endings are hard to find, and even though Katriona is in the middle of a war with someone who’s already stolen more than she can replace, she aches for a positive future with her DraĆ­ochtans.

Armed with hope, confidence in her abilities, and a strange new gift from her mother, Kate ventures into the Darkness to defeat a fallen god.

Losses add up, and new obstacles rise to stand in the way. Is the one determined to bring Encardia light strong enough to keep fighting, or will all the sacrifices to stop those who seek domination be for nothing?

Open to US/Canada only.
