In early 2022 I created a 2022 Reading Resolutions post, and I thought it was high time to explore how I did with these over the year, which obviously was terribly. Continue reading A Look Back on My 2022 Reading Resolutions

I am a very bad series-finisher, my bookcases are full of half-completed series or ones I’ve never even started, and that is something I’m endeavouring to change in 2023. So here are some of the series I’m hoping to finish, or get up to date with, this year, I’ve included a lot of duologies for a bit of realism because this will be tricky for me, but I’m hoping I can change at my big adult age. Continue reading The Series I Want to Finish in 2023
