    #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?

(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…

    You know when you take on too much…

    Good morning bookworms! You know that feeling you get when you’re SO EXCITED for everything, and so you sign up to it all, and then about a third of the way through whatever time period you start to realise that you’ve overloaded yourself and then panic and anxiety start to set in, and then you start to spiral and you end up in a weird mental trance state where nothing makes you feel anything, but everything is too hard and you just cry a lot and cut yourself off from…

    Off Tangent Thoughts… during read-a-thons

    Good morning bookworms! Today we are doing another Off Tangent Thoughts (OTT) which was created by Charvi @ Not Just Fiction. This fortnight’s topic is thoughts I have during read-a-thons. I LOVE read-a-thons. I love getting a list of prompts and finding books that work for them. I’m just really bad at the execution of them… because… I am a mood reader. 😭 OMG! A read-a-thon! *cue internal SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!* *pores over list of prompts* *runs around room finding books that match each prompt* *opens giant ‘BOOKS’ spreadsheet* *creates new tab*…

    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!
