    #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…

    February ’20 wrap up and March TBR

    Good morning bookworms! It’s time for the monthly wrap-up! During January… I got sick and had 2 migraines (new record). I also didn’t read anything for 11 days. That’s a pretty good record. Reading though? I read 6 books… which is the equal lowest number of books read per month in the last two years. (June 2019 was also 6 books!) Also, two of the books that I finished were even on my TBR for February, so I basically won because that never happens! However, I’m trying not to beat…

    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……

    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 WRAP-UP!!

    Good afternoon bookworms! Ahhh… the dreaded annual wrap-up. I mean, it’s not really “dreaded”… it just takes me ages to write and so I procrastinate it forever. Except, this year I was pretty good at keeping my spreadsheets up to date, so *hopefully* this won’t be as terrible as my brain is making it out to be!!* PS: This is going to be another long post, so apologies in advance! * Spoiler, it was just as bad as last year!! I did NOT fill out that spreadsheet as well as…

    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…

    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?!*).

  • 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…
