    #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…

    O.W.L.s read-a-thon TBR 2020

    Good morning book wizards and witches! IT’S O.WL.s TIME AGAIN!!! If you don’t know what O.W.L.s are then… you should read Harry Potter. OR you can watch Gintare’s video on YouTube about it!! But, very basically, Gintare (@BookRoast) runs a bi-annual read-a-thon based on the fifth and seventh year wizarding tests at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. O.W.L.s (Ordinary Wizarding Levels) are the fifth year tests, and in April we read a bunch of books that correspond to prompts the Gintare changes each year. The aim is to pick…

    2020 challenges and goals

    Good morning bookworms! Welcome to my rant post where I’ll be discussing all the things I want to accomplish this year, while simultaneously whining about how I signed up for too many things last year, and oh yeah, I still haven’t read a book yet in 2020.* As per 2019, I have signed up to a LOT of challenges for 2020. And by that I mean, more than I can cope with. HUZZAH!! 🎉 So, we’ll do a quick challenge overview, talk about how I’m going to tackle this each…

    2019 challenge wrap-up

    Good morning bookworms! Welcome to the 2019 challenge wrap-up! I’ll have another post with all my 2020 challenges in together as well. Goodreads Read 120 of 90 books. While I did finish my challenge in October. I finished my secret challenge (of 100 books) in November! (I actually read 122 books this year but Goodreads has erased Memento by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff from its catalogue, and I also read a beta novel this year.) Beat the Backlist I read 57 of 50 backlist books during 2019. Not all…

    November ’19 challenge wrap-up

    Good morning bookworms! Welcome to the November challenge wrap-up!! Goodreads Read 102 of 90 books.

  • Mrs Claus’ Read-a-thon

    Good evening bookworms! Welcome to another edition of “Meeghan signs herself up for more things than she can handle”… or can she? Who knows?! She can definitely stop talking about herself in the third person though… *mh-hm* Anyway… Gorgeous Sam @ Fictionally Sam is hosting this wonderful read-a-thon, and due to the fact that I’ve been devouring romance books like they’re going out of fashion (FYI, they’re not), I thought it was appropriate that I sign up for the thing! That started this morning! Huzzah! (Also, huge shout out to…

    Beat the Backlist – 2020

    Good morning bookworms! As we all may remember (and I sometimes forget), I signed up to, uhhh, a lot of challenges in 2019. What can I say? I have bookish FOMO. Unfortunately this bookish FOMO also results in me buying a lot of books. Which takes us back to the reason why we’re here. I am signing up for Beat the Backlist for the second year in a row!Yes, you heard me. Despite the fact that I think I added more books than removed from my backlist in 2019, I…

    October ’19 challenge wrap-up

    Good morning bookworms! Welcome to the September/October challenge wrap-up!! Also known as the post where each month I go “CRAP! I forgot to check what Sophie’s prompt is for the Ultimate Reading Challenge this month” and then try and retrofit my errors into something that works… 😓 Goodreads Read 92 of 90 books. I finished my challenge in October!! SUCCESS!!!! Beat the Backlist Read 47 of 50 books. (There is a column on the original list where I have marked off the books I have read.)

    N.E.W.T.s read-a-thon TBR 2019

    Good morning book wizards and witches! Today I am announcing my NEWTs read-a-thon TBR! (Which is actually mildly hilarious/ironic if you read my Off Tangent Thoughts post on me doing read-a-thons…) So, if you don’t know about O.W.L.s and/or N.E.W.T.s you can click on my post from last year HERE, or you can go watch G @ Book Roast’s videos (2019 OWLs and 2019 NEWTs). Now, I know that TECHNICALLY most people did their NEWTs in August, however, I had this post drafted and ready to go, but then I decided to do…

    Good morning bookworms! Welcome to the August challenge wrap-up!! Also known as the post where each month I go “CRAP! I forgot to check what Sophie’s prompt is for the Ultimate Reading Challenge this month” and then try and retrofit my errors into something that works… 😓 Goodreads Read 71 of 90 books. Definitely on track!! (And no, this doesn’t count the beta I read this year…) Beat the Backlist Read 42 of 50 books. (There is a column on the original list where I have marked off the books…

    July '19 challenge wrap-up

    Good morning bookworms! I have been a bad blogger!! Kind of… I mean, I’ve been busy this week, and I’ve come to the very end of all my pre-written, scheduled posts… so I missed a couple of posts this week!! But I’m also trying hard not to kick myself for this as well!! Book Ending Summer ’19 and Tidyathon During the month of July I participated in Book Ending Summer, and Tidyathon! Clo @ Book Dragons and Sam @ Fictionally Sam did a fabulously amazing job organising #BookEndingSummer, and I did…

    Good morning bookworms! Uhhhh, it would appear that I just didn’t do a challenge wrap-up for May… Classic Meeghan!

    O.W.L.s read-a-thon wrap-up 2019

    Good morning book wizards and witches! Holy moly! Thank god that’s over. WHYYYYY do I think that signing up for reading challenges is a good idea? I am a MOOD READER. I am BAD at this. Let’s go see what I actually read this month, and then we can discuss how I am NOT *spoiler alert* going to be an Alchemist. If you don’t know about O.W.L.s you can click on my post from last year HERE, or you can go watch G @ Book Roast‘s video HERE. OWLs TBR…

    March '19 challenge wrap-up

    Good morning bookworms! A-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, remember how organised I was at the start of the year? I had my posting schedule payed out, I was weeks ahead with my posts! I even had spreadsheets that I was keeping up to date with everything including page numbers and Goodreads links! And now here we are in April and my life is falling to pieces. (I mean, that’s a slight exaggeration, but you get the picture!) Because eleven challenges (sign up posts part 1 and part 2) clearly weren’t enough for me, you would…

    Avengers Readathon TBR

    Good morning bookworms! Yes folks, it’s time for me to sign up to MOAR read-a-thons that I may not be able to handle! Are you ready? (Good. At least someone is…) So, The Perks of Being Noura have compiled this amazing challenge, and I am signing up. Why, you ask? It’s mostly because I’m a huge Marvel nerd. But also because I don’t think that 12 challenges in one year is enough. No sirree, Bob. The Avengers Read-a-thon starts on 14 April and runs through to 14 May – that’s…

So, if you don’t know about O.W.L.s you can click on my post from last year HERE, or you can go watch G @ Book Roast‘s video HERE. Careers OK, so I am really undecided on which Wizarding Career I want to aim for with my NEWTs. I mean, obviously there’s some I don’t care for. But Alchemist is…
