August Reading and Blogging 2020 Wrap-Up - Novels and Nebulas

August 2020 Wrap-Up: Nuclear Decay Formula

August wasn’t the best month for me in terms of reading or blogging. My work-life balance crashed like an exponential curve (hence the reference to nuclear decay) right from the start. I was so exhausted at the end of every day that picking a book up or even opening my laptop to blog felt like a chore. However, things have evened out a little this last week and I’m hopeful that September will be a good month. Let’s talk details in my August 2020 wrap-up!

The Poppy War Book Tag (Original) - Novels and Nebulas

The Poppy War Book Tag (Original)

This tag was created in collaboration with Vee @ Vanshika’s Books and Krisha @ Bookathon, who love this series just as much (if not more) than I do. Krisha and I are hosting a readalong for The Poppy War series in September and October, with an IG live scheduled with R. F. Kuang herself, so don’t forget to join us as we prepare ourselves for The Burning God coming out in November. We were thinking of fun ways to celebrate the series and hit upon the idea for a book tag, which Vee kindly accepted to work on together. We had the best time coming up with prompts, refining them, freaking out over the series and I’m so proud of how it has turned out. I really hope you enjoy the post and decide to do The Poppy War Book Tag on your bookish platforms too!

July Reading and Blogging 2020 Wrap-Up - Novels and Nebulas

July 2020 Wrap-Up: The Seesaw Effect

July was a month of highs and lows, of idle days spent staring at the pouring rain while listening to an audiobook and frantic work as the clock marched towards midnight. I had a pretty good reading month even though I fell into a slump midway. Self-care took a severe hit and I’m ending the month an exhausted mess. However, my adherence to my blogging schedule, stats and engagement has climbed since June, which is a big reason to celebrate. Let me tell you all about it in my July 2020 wrap-up!

Mini Book Reviews: Stars and Sorcery BOTM (Jan-Jun 2020) - Novels and Nebulas

Mini Book Reviews: Stars and Sorcery BOTM (Jan-Jun 2020)

This might be an unpopular opinion but I love reading and writing reviews quite a lot. Even though they don’t get as many views as other types of posts, I write them to share my thoughts and hopefully convince people to pick them up if I liked them. I run a monthly book club on Twitter called Stars and Sorcery, which focuses on reading sci-fi and fantasy books by authors of colour. Most of the books chosen as the Book of the Month (BOTM) for the club are backlist titles, so I don’t get to highlight them as much on my blog. Today, I decided to write mini reviews for each of the BOTMs of Stars and Sorcery between Jan-Jun 2020.
