So long for now.

I am writing this post with a heavy heart but it's one that must be written. After blogging for several years, I have come to the decision that I need to close the doors on Serendipity Reviews for the foreseeable future.  I'm not saying I may never return, but for now I need to step back and concentrate on my family, my life and my future. I still intend to continue with my writing which will take my full focus. 

I haven't been able to give the blog my full attention for a couple of months now and I'm having the worst reading slump I have ever had. So it wouldn't be fair to continue with dribs and drabs, if I can't give it my all. 

The journey has been fun. Over the years I have hosted some amazing authors, of which, quite a few I can now call friends. I have had the opportunity to work with some fabulous publicists and been able to attend amazing events. I have also been warmly welcomed into the book blogging community and made many friends. 

I have a few outstanding guest posts that will appear over the following weeks, but there will be no reviews being posted. 

I want to thank everyone for all the support and friendship they have provided with me over the years. 

I want to thank my lovely reviewers, KM Lockwood, Liss Norton and recent new members, Sarah Baker and Emma Finlayson Palmer.  KM Lockwood will continue to write and review over at her blog which is linked here. 

Maybe I will find in a few months that I miss the blog desperately, so I can't ever say that I will never come back.  However for now, I need to say so long and inform you all that I will no longer be accepting  books for review. 

I will still be around on and off on Twitter and when I finally find my reading groove, I will shout from the rooftops about the books I love. 


  1. Thank you for all the chances you have given me to talk about the books I read and love. I wish you all the best for the future - you're such a encouraging and creative force, you deserve enormous success.

  2. Good luck with whatever you do next, you'll be greatly missed!!!

  3. Very best wishes, Viv. Enjoy some me time and the special people in your life x

  4. Good luck with your writing lovely and I am here cheering you on. I have been a big fan of your blog for such a long time. You will do amazing things xx

  5. Will miss your reviews but maybe you'll be back when you're refreshed enough.
    I shall keep you listed on my blog page should you return.
    All the very best whatever happens, Sharon
