January 2023 Wrap-Up!

What a month! I read 23 things (not intentional), which gave me a HUGE jump start with my reading goal of 150. If I can keep this up, I’ll definitely have to bump it up!

I also came up with a few post ideas I might implement later on in the year, both in the vein of my usual stuff (reviews and such) but with a little bit of a satirical twist, and stuff I haven’t done before. I just need to see if I can pull it together in a way I’m happy with.

Anyway, books! This is a book wrap up. Let’s get into it!

  1. Oooh look at those 5’s!!! Of course they’re the Wayward Children. That will give your yearly average a boost! lol. Getting closer to the series being finished and I can’t wait for the box set, there’d better be one!
