So, I’m baackk (again!)

So, I’m baackk (again!)

  Afternoon followers… yes, I’m back (again!). How are you all doing?? It’s been nearly a year since my last post.. have you missed me? 🙂 A lot has happened over the last 12 months but one thing has not changed; I’m still a hopeless romantic who loves reading. Especially dirty books.   That being said, the reason I fell out of love with the blog was that it became another job to do after the paying job finished and that just didn’t work for me. This time round, things have to be different. There will still be reviews, events… Keep Reading »

On Hiatus…

On Hiatus…

Hi all The blog is going on Hiatus until April 13th (ish). I’ve had several personal circumstances that have to take priority and now I’m off on a holiday! Hopefully, I shall be back with my blogging mojo… I’ll be honest, I’ve had the stuffing knocked out of me since Christmas with everything and the blog has had to take a massive backseat. Love to you all and a massive apology from me [a very tired] Nix

(Another) apology for my minimal blogging

(Another) apology for my minimal blogging

Hi all Wow,  all I seem to do is apologise for my minimal blogging but I have been trying harder recently. I’ve tried to do at least one review and the 2 memes but my long term goal is to do 3 reviews a week plus my two memes. That being said, I’ve done nothing this week. I’ve spent a lot of the week helping plan a family funeral and then (of course) I got ill. Hopefully, this week I shall review some things as I have managed to read quite a bit in my downtime. Just to mention again… Keep Reading »

Update on the S.P.A.M emails from the old blogger site

Update on the S.P.A.M emails from the old blogger site

Hi all Well, I’ve been having a blooming nightmare. So, I found out this morning about the spam emails that were going to feedburner subscribers from the blogger blogsite. Turns out, someone else has taken over the page after I deleted it (I’m know, I’m sorry) and is using it to post garbage posts. Feedburner doesn’t recognise it is a different site and so it burning the posts and sending them to the email addresses on the original feedburner list. I cannot do anything about it… I am so sorry for the SPAM. What you can do Unsubscribe from the… Keep Reading »

Random Musing : Anyone got recommendations to help me achieve my reading resolutions?

Random Musing : Anyone got recommendations to help me achieve my reading resolutions?

My new year reading resolutions are simple and I need your help. There are certain genres that I want to read more of but I have no idea of where to start … here is my list readers. Help! (PS … on a side note, I seem to like GIF’s at the moment…don’t worry, they won’t be going into the reviews.) 1.  More FF romance Here’s the thing; I found out a long damn time ago that I have no preference on what sexuality the characters in a book have as long as it works. I have read quite a… Keep Reading »

Nix Musing : Guest-Posts and Blog-tours : When do I take part?

Nix Musing : Guest-Posts  and Blog-tours : When do I take part?

  This week, I have had multiple emails publicising blog-tours and asking for participation. Sometimes, I have had more than one email for the same tour as the tour host hasn’t got enough hosts signed up and they are asking people to help out. Some people would help out the tour host at this point (because the tour-hosts are good people and send good promo our way) but I just can’t do it. If I haven’t signed up after the original email, there is a reason why. My blog is important to me. The content I put up there represents… Keep Reading »

Random Musing Post : What I look for in a holiday read.

Random Musing Post : What I look for in a holiday read.

Ever since I bought my Kindle. it’s been easier for me to choose my perfect holiday read. It used to be that I used to have pick just 2 or 3 paperbacks but now I can pick a butt-load. Holiday reads for me are specific. They have to fit a particular set of criteria and so I thought I’d share them and some of my favourites. I know I’m an odd-bod for having holiday read criteria but we all know I read books to fit my mood … They have to be light I’m not a fan of huge angst… Keep Reading »

Nix Review – Why I don’t read reviews which include casting photographs before I read a book.

Nix Review – Why I don’t read reviews which include casting photographs before I read a book.

Over the last few months, I have noticed a growing trend on GoodReads. It no longer seems good enough to just review a book, now people are adding their own “casting choice” photo’s to go along with them. What I mean by this is that there will be pictures added, usually of actresses and actors, that are the reviewers representation of what the character looks like. I say usually actors or actresses but there have been models I’m not familiar with (dicey ground Ladies and Gents … if the images are copyrighted, you are playing with fire) or even porn… Keep Reading »
