The rest of my birthday book haul came in, so it was ok, but still more than I would have liked it to be!!     Book haul categories are as follows: book boxes book purchases (book mail, in-store, digital* and gifts) review copies (book mail and…

    August ’20 TBR

    Good morning bookworms! You know why Joanne (this is how I’m probs going to refer to her from now on) being a total transphobic troll is the worst thing ever? Because she has RUINED EVERYTHING. We can’t feel joy about the series any more, (and I will forever have an incomplete set of the illustrated versions). But more importantly, she…

    2020 mid-year freak out!

    Hello bookworms!! A couple of weeks ago, the gorgeous duo of Marie and Nyx @ Drizzle Hurricane Books tagged me to do the mid-year freak out book tag. And I’m late to the party because I seem to be late at everything lately… Also, I don’t like to do this until after we hit the mid-way mark of the year…

    June ’20 wrap-up

    Good evening bookworms! Does anyone else feel like this year has simultaneously taken 30 seconds, and 8 years?! I am so tired, but also, where the hell did this year go? How are we already more than halfway through? Thankfully I have a week of holidays coming up. I’m hoping that I can use some of that time to catch…

    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…

    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…

    #Start-On-Your-Shelf-a-thon 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,…

    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…

    June ’20 TBR

    Good morning bookworms! Look, I’ll be honest. I don’t even know HOW we are at the end of May already. There’s clearly some faulty timer or something else gone wrong with 2020, you know, as well as all the other stuff that’s gone wrong with this year… Anyway, separate from my big monthly wrap up that’s coming sometime next week,…

    April ’20 wrap-up

    Good morning bookworms! April… jeez… I’m glad that’s over!! The world is still in isolation… Am I doing anything productive?? Not really!! Let’s talk about what happened last month… I survived the O.W.L.s, and managed to hit all the prompts I needed in order to go for the careers I want for my N.E.W.T.s!! I almost missed Potions because I…

    May ’20 TBR

    Good morning bookworms! How are we already a third of the way through the year? I feel like 2020 has taken about 39 seconds, but also 6 years. I have aged 13 years since being at home. All. The. TIME. However, I can’t shouldn’t complain too much, because I know I am fortunate to still have a job – I…

    March ’20 book haul

    Good morning bookworms!! It’s time for the monthly book haul!! Also… cast your mind back to the start of the year when I said I wanted to keep my hauls under 10 books per month? cough Ummm… you see, that really didn’t happen last month. I think I went crazy. I’m not even sure what happened. Maybe it was like…

    March ’20 wrap-up

    Good morning bookworms! Let’s talk about March… ooof. I am telling you, someone needs to pull the plug on 2020 and let’s just restart this year, because between fire, floods and worldwide pandemic, I am done with 2020, and we’re only one quarter through. On a happier note, let’s talk about all the GOOD things from last month.   I…
