An Interview With Author R. F. Kuang - Q&A by Nandini @ Novels and Nebulas

An Interview With Author R. F. Kuang

We are only weeks away from the release of the final book in The Poppy War trilogy, which comes out on November 17th, 2020. To celebrate that and spike your excitement, today I bring you the blog post I’m most proud of this year – an interview with the one and only R. F. Kuang. I am immensely lucky to have been granted this opportunity along with other amazing Asian bookish creators. I love how Rebecca insisted on making it more of a conversation and I hope that you all get to know her (and me) a bit more from this. With that little introduction aside, let’s get into the Q&A part!

Top 10 Exciting SFF Releases of Nov & Dec 2020

The end of the year has snuck up on us and I’m actually relieved to be bidding goodbye to 2020. My focus for the last two months will be to get caught up on all the books I pushed to the back burner this year. However, there are still a few books that I’m really looking forward to that I hope will end this year on a positive note for me. It’s an even split between young adult and adult titles this time and some popular ones are missing because I’m not personally excited for them. With that little tease, let’s get into my most anticipated SFF books coming out in Nov & Dec 2020!

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.
