    The Book Predictions tag

    Good morning bookworms! Because the lovely Shanah is still on a blog hiatus, and there’s no Top 5 Tuesday, all Tuesdays in July will be dedicated to catching up on tags! Which, will barely make a dint in the pile of tags I have HOARDED (like a dragon – seriously, I have 52 on my list, and that does not count doubles… maybe I need to dedicate a day to them every week for a while…).

    July ’20 TBR: Pop Culture Readathon

    Good morning bookworms! So… this is a bit late, but there’s a reason for it. I completely forgot that I had intended on doing the Pop Culture Readathon this month. And because I forgot, my plan was to just reread the Mortal Instruments (which I have almost totally forgotten because the TV series has stolen what actually happened from my mind, and also it’s been YEARS – like, at least 6 – since I’ve read them), and then finally start get a start on the 10,000 other Shadowhunter books I…

Warning now: the last two are VERY HEAVY books and will not be for everyone. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by the super lovely Shanah over at the Bionic Bookworm. You can visit her here, and…

    #StartOnYourShelfathon Challenge

    Good morning bookworms! Do you remember in 2019 when I used to post monthly updates on all my challenges? What the f*** happened to moderately organised Meeghan? I think she fell down a well and Lassie wasn’t nearby. (Shout out if you’re old enough to understand that reference…) So, for a bit of context, many, many, MANY months ago (like, back in January which is almost HALF A YEAR ago), I said I wanted to do some challenges, but I hadn’t quite figured some stuff out yet. This was mostly…

    May ’20 wrap-up

    Good morning bookworms! 2020 has been a time. One of my friends was joking that she and her sister are going to make a tour band style t-shirt for 2020, but instead of concerts, it’s just going to be all the shit that is going on in the world this year against each month. I imagine it’s going to look something like this: January | Bushfires February | Floods March | Global pandemic April | Isolation May | Murder hornets
