Welcome to The Monthly Chapter for January 2023.
It’s a new year and let me tell you I have big plans for both blogs this year. Right off the bat you can see I changed a few things with this particular series. Not too much because honestly, it has been one of my more popular series and giveaways. There will be a few new things happening around here and a few tired and true things.
One of my biggest things here is to post a little more often here. I feel like I fell behind so much here last year and I don’t want that to be the case. I have been working ahead and prepping as much as I could. Some things just can’t be done early but I wanted to be sure I was ready.
I had fallen into a bit of a reading slump the last few months of last year and it really showed here. I don’t know why but it seemed like nothing interested me at all. This month I am hoping to rekindle my reading fire and find not only new authors but expand my genres a little more.

This week I am re-reading “Dune”. I just finished another book by the author “the White Plague”, I really wanted to like it, but it felt … unfinished, unpolished, like he wasn’t sure where he wanted to go. I made me miss his other stuff.
