Starting all over again …. Without a clue as usual!

Starting all over again …..

Posted May 16, 2017 by Nix in Musing / 6 Comments

So, most of you know I have been out of action for around 18 months. I decided to start again when I got my annual reminder to pay my fees. It was decision time; pay up and actually blog or let Scorching Book Reviews fade away. I decided on the former.     I’m not […]

I’ve been away from the blog for two weeks. It wasn’t a conscious decision it just happened. The Sex Scene Championship is an awesome event … a bloody awesome event (have you all read the winning scene? ’tis amazeballs) but it’s so tiring being on call of the time. I needed a break and so […]

  OK, next month is LGBT month here on the blog. I love this event but there is one thing I think I haven’t done enough of over the last few years; I haven’t done enough LGBT reviews on it. This year I am committed to one LGBT post per day (there may be non-LGBT […]

I’ve heard so much over the past few weeks that makes me unhappy with what is currently going on in the blogging world. Reviewers being harassed over a negative review (and let me be clear here, it was a negative review of the BOOK not the author though that author has since proven herself unworthy […]

First off, sorry about the flashing GIF but it is Idris Elba and I couldn’t resist *strokes screen*. Yes Ladies and Gent’s, I got that judgey statement/question again this week…. “Oh my God, you read PORN?” (a statement followed by me swiftly sighing and smashing my head against desk). I don’t consider what I read […]

I think I’m becoming more fussy in my old age. Gone are the days when I would read anything, when everything caught my attention and kept it ’til the very last sentence. If any book manages to keep me reading nowadays, I have to try more of that author immediately. If it’s a series book, […]

I’ve been blogging for 4 years now (I know….4 years!) and in that time, I’ve read a hell of a lot of romance books. My reading rate has increased since I began this site and I’ve tried tropes I never would have if I hadn’t been part of this community. I’ve now come to realise […]

Why I’m no longer pressing that “pre-order” one-click button.

I’ve decided something from this week; I’m no longer pre-ordering eBooks from Amazon. Last week, a book I bought on pre-order dropped in price, the day after it released, by nearly 30%. I spent more money on that book, just to get it on release day, and I haven’t even gotten round to reading it […]

There has been a lot of chatter this last couple of months about a YA mafia. Said “mafia” leave rather scathing comments on negative reviews of their own books. The problem has gotten so bad that Goodreads have taken the step of blocking any author who does this, stating that Goodreads should be a place where people […]
