Monthly Wrap Up | January 2023

Hello readers and welcome to my first monthly wrap up post of 2023! January has just flown by, and I’m really glad to have started the new year with some amazing reads. In a change of plans, I have decided to pick up a couple of reading challenges for the year and will be including updates for them in these posts going forward. One of my new challenges is to read atleast one classic each month, and another is to read atleast two titles from my backlist each month. I’ve also changed the format of my book reviews and monthly wrapups this year, so I’d love to hear your thoughts on them. Let’s take a look at my January!

2022 Wrap Up – A Year in Books + What’s Coming in 2023

2022 has flown by! It has been an interesting year and in terms of blogging, a rather mixed one for me. The first half of the year was business as usual, but unfortunately blogging had to take something of a backseat during the latter half due to various issues and I had to slow things down significantly. Nonetheless, I’ve read some truly amazing books in 2022 and I’m looking forward to many more this year!

My major milestone last year was crossing 50,000 all time views on my blog which happened back in August. I also hit 900 posts just in time for the new year and am drawing really close to the 800 followers mark here on WordPress. Worlds Unlike Our Own turned 4 years old in October and I’m very excited to be going into my fifth year of blogging with that milestone coming up this year. Let’s take a look at 2022 on my blog and what’s new this year!
