Review Changes at Scorching Book Reviews

Review Changes at Scorching Book Reviews

Hola people 🙂 Well, as you can tell, I haven’t been as active. It isn’t that I can’t be bothered, it’s that I just don’t have the time. Running a blog solo is completely achieveable when you have free time but I haven’t any at the moment and so the blog has suffered. I’m putting some changes in place as of now to try to ease my stress levels about the lack of blogging and keep you all a bit up to speed 🙂  … Review Requests : I’m not accepting them. I have a pile that I still have… Keep Reading »

An apology and an update

Hey all I haven’t been posting much due to technical issues. I’ve been borrowing equipment when I can but it hasn’t led to very consistent blogging. Hopefully, I should be up and running soon … thank you so much to those still reading! I shall try to get this show on the road but, until that point, thanks for all the support 🙂 Nix   x

Musing Post : Stress, Real Life and the Book Blogging Blues…

Musing Post : Stress, Real Life and the Book Blogging Blues…

This is pretty much an apology post. Over the last month, I have been a shitty book blogger. The blog has mainly been Top Picks, Hot Cover and nothing else. I’m sorry readers, I promise I will do better.   Over the last couple of months, real life has gotten a little bit stressful. I’m organizing a wedding, my paying job has decided to suck donkey balls and I barely have enough time to clean my house (seriously, my house is a dump). I have had no time to review and, quite honestly, I’ve not had the will. Yes, the… Keep Reading »

Terry Pratchett and the Discworld Novels.

  It’s not often I do this. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever written down my thoughts and feelings on the death of an author. Then again, I don’t think I’ve ever been this affected by the death of one. Today, the world lost a great author in Terry Pratchett and I am truly saddened that I shall never again be able to read or listen to the opinions of a man whose books got me through my awkward teen years. As a child, I was always a book-worm. I didn’t like people very much but books I loved…. 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 »

Scorching Reviews in 2015 : Resolutions, Changes and Future Events

Scorching Reviews in 2015 : Resolutions, Changes and Future Events

Hola and welcome to Scorching Book Reviews. Last year was challenging here on the blog. I became the solo reviewer and, because of the pressure, I lost my blogging mojo. Well, I’m doing some changes and I hope that it will be different in 2015. I want to take a step back and learn to love blogging again so here are my blogging resolutions … I have deleted Stat-counter … no more focusing on how well (or how not so well) the blog is doing with the general public. I want to blog for me! I am on a book-buying… Keep Reading »

A Random Musing: Who are your favorite characters in the Lucky Harbor Series? (Voting Poll & Giveaway)

A Random Musing: Who are your favorite characters in the Lucky Harbor Series? (Voting Poll & Giveaway)

I’m so sad *sniff*. Lucky Harbor is over. I’ll never get to see another installment from this lovely little town and I’ll never read how Lucille perverts the next social media app *sob* I refuse to be completely saddened though as I’ve had a lot of fond memories of this series. This post is the first of a couple and the reason it’s the first it’s that it’s the voting post. Yes, dear readers I want to know who your favorites were. I’ll be telling you mine and then I’d like you to share yours on the polls below. I’m… 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 Musings : The future at Scorching Book Reviews (For now…..)

Random Musings : The future at Scorching Book Reviews (For now…..)

  As Sheldon states, I do, in fact need to get a life. Between work, the blog and reading for the blog, I am actually struggling to get a balance. I don’t want to stop blogging but things need to change. I do have the option of asking if another blog wants me but I’m still kinda set on running Scorching Book Reviews so I’m going to change things up a bit, get a bit more scheduled and a bit more organised and maybe take a few guest reviews if people want to do them for me. So, what’s changing?… Keep Reading »
