Sidhe Vicious Reviews

Spoiler Free Reviews & More Book-ish Goings On :)

Sidhe’s News & Updates


I just wanted to let everyone know what I’ve been up to besides getting back to reviewing. I’ve updated the BIOS/Policy page, updated my Wish List in the sidebar, and I’ve gone through my links and culled any that were no longer good links. If any of you find any more “dead” links in my sidebar, or if you have any cool links to share with me, please let me know and I’ll consider adding them. I’ve attempted to “clean up” the side bars a bit too.

I’m still plugging away at updating the “My Books” list/pages. Bear with me on that one as there’s a LOT of updating to do on those, lol. We should also have the New Releases for August & September up shortly. Tori & I are working on that as I type.

As you all know, Tori’s joined me on the blog as a reviewer recently and I’m loving having her here! I hope you all are as excited as I am about having some new reviewers. I have another new reviewer in the works who will also be a great addition to the blog. 🙂

On to other news – I’ve been mulling over a few things and I thought I’d put them out there to see what you all think.

Zombies! Do you love ’em, hate ’em or run like hell if you see one coming? 😉 LOL  I’ve been seeing more zombie books out there and I gotta say that I’m not really all that attracted to buying/reading them myself. I know that there are a few really good ones out there, but for the most part, I find them pretty disgusting and have a really hard time liking any main characters who are zombies. If they are secondary characters or the villain/antagonist, then they can enhance a story, but as the main character? For the most part… no thanks. What do you think?

Steampunk! Are you all loving it or not liking it? I can’t say that I’ve read a whole lot of books in the genre, but I didn’t really like the few that I have read. Not because the writing was bad or anything like that. They were well written, but just didn’t appeal to me. It kinda makes me sad, because so many great authors are putting out books in this genre and I am not wanting to read them. Sound off people, I want to know what you think!

YA & New Author Nominations For The Best of 2009


award-button2 The end of the year is coming up, can you believe it.  My wonderful Twin, at Wicked Lil Pixie and I have decided to ask our readers what their favorites of 2009 are.

I figured we would start a bit easy: YA category Favorite Authors & Best New Authors and we’ll move on week by week to other genres/sub-genres/authors. I also know there’s a lot of late releases this year, so they’ll have their own category as well, so we don’t leave anyone out.

I also think a top 5 for every category should suffice, we know how hard it is to choose favorites.

 At the end of it, we will have a contest with some of the top books of every category being given away.

So, comment away…who are your FAVORITE NEW AUTHORS of 2009 & FAVORITE YA Authors of 2009 nominate as many as you want for each category and next week we’ll have a poll to narrow them all down!

Blog Poll


I just signed on to my blog using my desktop and the screen size is a bit different than the 17 inch laptop I’m used to using. I can see that I need to resize the awards graphics in my sidebar, but my question to you, my readers. is do you have any other requests, suggestions or ideas to make my blog more viewer friendly? Is there anything you’d like to see here, or don’t want to see?

Now’s your chance to sound off on what you want! 🙂 I’ll do my best to take it all into consideration and make any changes that I can.

Hope everyone’s having a great weekend.
