Weekly BookTube Video Roundup – March 8-14, 2021

Today’s blog post is my weekly roundup of all the videos I’ve posted to my BookTube channel this past week. It didn’t all go to plan because there were a number of factors that weighed in and made me move around videos and posts and what not. But I did manage to upload 3 videos this week, as against the 4 that I had planned. And that’s not bad. At least that’s what I’m telling myself. XD

How I Stay Organised & Tips for New Bloggers

Such a great list of tips! I’m going to implement these tips from now on. Today is day 1. 🙂

A Fangirl's Opinion

Last month I read a lot of posts about blogging tips and I thought I’d share some of my years of wisdom! I started this blog all the way back in 2014, but it’s only recently that I’ve discovered my blogging identity and reignited a creative spark that has changed the way I blog entirely.

Sonali Dabade’s Nonet is a collection of nine short stories that has varied themes. It isn’t only about one person or one place, but more about the bonds that human create and take forward – be it love, friendship or more frivolously, even that of enemies.

As mentioned, there are nine stories in total and they do not interconnect with each other. But I did find a recurring theme which could be called a base of the plotlines. Themes of romance, friendship, long lost emotions – both love and hatred – and of human desire were incorporated in the stories in a beautiful manner.

In the first story, Zero, we could see the desperation for human contact while in the next story, A Sojourn Somewhere, we could feel the desperation for freedom. In Mystic too, human curiosity played major roles for the theme, as well as the longing for connection…
