    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…

    #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…

    January ’20 wrap up and February TBR

    Good morning bookworms! It’s time for the monthly wrap-up for January! During January I read 9 books. Which was totally fine, unless you look at my reading pattern, which was kind of a joke!! (Week 1: nothing, week 2: 7 ebooks, week 3: 1 audiobook, week 4: nothing, last 4 days of month: 1 physical book.) I was kind of all over the place with our renovations and family stuff and we had a big BBQ at our place and the fires – I mean, the fires are still going……

    December ’19 wrap up and January TBR

    Good morning bookworms! It’s time for the final monthly wrap-up for 2019, the December wrap-up! During December I read an excessive amount of books. For me. A grand total of 18 books, which is definitely my highest monthly total for the year!! This mostly had to do with Sam @ Fictionally Sam’s Mrs Claus’ Readathon, but also probably to do with the sheer number of romance novels I devoured (why can’t I read fantasy this quickly?!*).

    WWW Thursday?! – 26 December 2019

    Good evening bookworms! I hope you all had an amazing holiday period, no matter whether you celebrated a festivity or not. Welcome to this week’s WWW Wednesday Thursday! Because this week was slightly distracting and we’ve had a couple of family activities!! What is this, you ask? Well, it’s a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words. All you have to do is answer the three following questions: What did you recently finish reading? What are you currently reading? What do you think you’ll read…

    Mini reviews: Mrs Claus’ Read-a-thon edition

    Good morning bookworms! This post is kind of a double up in terms of me reading SIX BOOKS for Sam @ Fictionally Sam’s Mrs Claus’ Readathon, AND also ticking off some mini reviews for books that I probably won’t write full reviews on. Looking for romance recommendations? Look no further!! As per every readathon I have ever done, I had a plan of what I was going to read for prompts. I think I did two of those… so, to begin with, here’s what I actually read! Challenge Prompt Book…

    WWW Wednesday – 18 December 2019

    Good morning bookworms! Welcome to this week’s WWW Wednesday! What is this, you ask? Well, it’s a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words. All you have to do is answer the three following questions: What did you recently finish reading? What are you currently reading? What do you think you’ll read next? FYI – The Of Wonderland theme for December is villains and anti-heroes II! However, I seem to be only reading romances this month, so I’m switching my icon out this week and next for…

  • 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…

    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*…

    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…

    OWLs read-a-thon challenge progress report

    Hi everyone! So a couple of weeks ago, I posted that I would be taking place in the Ordinary Wizarding Levels read-a-thon challenge for August (even though most people were doing their NEWTs), because I missed out in April! I also said that I might post an update during the month to show you guys my progress, which is what this post is! So, here’s what I have accomplished so far this month: Subject Prompt Book I thought I would read Book I actually read Ancient Runes A book with…
