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.Read More »Mini Book Reviews: Stars and Sorcery BOTM (Jan-Jun 2020)

I felt like May was gone in the blink of an eye. It was a whirlwind of long working days and I had lesser time to read and blog, but I did my best.

The world has come to a standstill and the miraculous human temperament has adjusted to the confines of staying at home. April was also a month that dragged on, the definitions between days blurring together. However, it did give me a lot of free time to read and blog, so you will see a spike in my reading and blogging stats. It’s not a healthy boost because this was fuelled by the intense need to disconnect from the horrors of the new normal. Hoping that I can find healthier ways to carry this momentum into May, let me share with you my April 2020 wrap-up!Read More »April 2020 Wrap-Up: The Exponential Growth Phase
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!Read More »January 2020 Wrap-Up: The Big Bang!
