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.

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!

The Finished Books Tag: How I Read & Review Books - Novels and Nebulas

The Finished Books Tag

I was looking for a tag to do for today’s post and I felt so lucky when Sahi @ My World of Books tagged me for The Finished Books Tag. This tag was created by the channel owner of Headless Books, but the video is not up anymore, unfortunately.
