Time may be only an illusion but it did fly by this January. 2020 has been off to an interesting start so far. Going into it, I was less prepared than I would have liked to be – pages on the blog were still under construction, not a single post was scheduled and I had a ton of things that I hadn’t planned out. How did that pan out for me? Let’s nosedive into my January 2020 wrap-up to find out!
I managed to read 4 books this month, which is on the lower side. However, the start of the year really overwhelmed me and I finished my first book only on January 12th. The quality of books I read was average and overall, I’d say it wasn’t my best reading month.

My blog didn’t get off to the flying start I had wished for. I’ve been trying to work through a backlog of posts and design elements that needed to be done before January 2020 started. Nevertheless, I’m happy that I got over my perfectionism and started posting because I love creating content for Novels and Nebulas!

This year I feel like I have taken on a bit more than I can chew off. I managed to read the Stars and Sorcery BOTM and 2 books by South-Asian authors but they weren’t the books chosen for SARC in January. Despite my lack of efforts, Stars and Sorcery and SARC started off on a high note in 2020, for which I’m really grateful to the book club members and SARC co-hosts.
