Reading is my go-to activity when I am looking for something to do. Whether it’s a mystery, fantasy novel, or non-fiction book, there are so many books to delve into. With my massive TBR, I have seemingly endless choices to pick from. Each month leads to tackling more of those unread books and enjoying whatever stories or knowledge can be found within them. January was a pretty decent month reading-wise. This January 2023 Reading Wrap-Up does over the books read during the month and shares my thoughts on them. Perhaps you will find a book you are interested in from these.

January 2023 Reading Wrap-Up
This volume is a collection of stories from throughout the series. I loved getting to look back on Siva and Teacher’s earlier days and some extra adventures and learning they did together. I almost wish these stories had been included in the earlier volumes but I am happy to get them now. Being that this is the last volume of the series, I am really tempted to re-read this series and enjoy it all once again.
This book was gifted to me by a friend a couple of years ago and I finally made time to read it this month. This omnibus contains the first 4 books in The Twenty-Sided Sorceress series. While it started a bit slow, I was soon sucked into the story. I absolutely loved the mix of characters and how each played such a big role in Jade’s life. In fact, they didn’t even feel like side characters because they all had a lot of character development and page time throughout the books. While I occasionally felt as though things were happening too fast or easily, there were an equal number of times when everyone struggled throughout. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
Fly Me To The Moon Vol. 1-3 by Kenjiro Hata
Having watched the first season of the anime and eagerly awaiting the next, I decided it was time to read the manga. Oftentimes, there is more content in the manga or slight differences. Tsukasa and Nasa are so damned cute. Watching them navigate being a married couple while still learning so much about each other is the main thing I love about this series. I cannot wait to pick up the rest of the volumes and read them.
I picked this series up on a whim. It sounded like it would be an interesting read, plus I love the idea of a manga about a manga artist. While a bit on the slow side, I really enjoyed this volume. Of course, throw an alien princess and an unexpected engagement into the mix and things get a whole lot more interesting. The way the story blends together family, work, romance, and friendship really drew me in. I look forward to seeing where this story goes as the series progresses.
My friend gifted me this book for Christmas and boy am I glad she did. This little book is chock-full of great information to build, maintain, and cook from a kitchen garden. From building soil, crop rotation, garden layouts, and more, if you are looking to start a kitchen garden then this book is for you. I will be referencing this one in the future as a kitchen garden has been on my to-do list to make for some time now.
