    #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…

    Top 5… sanity savers!

    Good morning bookworms! Today’s Top 5 Tuesday is ‘sanity savers – things I’m enjoying while in isolation!’ Because so help me, I am starting to lose my mind… In saying that, today is day number… twenty-six that I have been in isolation. Now, that’s a lot for Australia. We had our first confirmed case in Canberra on 12 March, and I have been in lockdown / isolation / quarantine (whatever you want to call it) since Friday 13 March. Why? Because I am immunosuppressed. My immune system does this super…

    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…

    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…

  • 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…

    Who Am I? book tag

    Good morning bookworms! TODAY’S POST, is my 500th blog post. 500 posts. I don’t even want to consider how many hours I’ve spent tell you guys all my ramblings, but I did just want to say, THANK YOU for being here with me. I really appreciate you guys and just want you to know how much it means to me that you all support me. Which is, A LOT. I wanted to find something fun to do today to celebrate, so I started look through a bunch of tags (that…

  • Sunshine Blogger Award #10

    Good morning bookworms! I’M BAAAAAAAACKK!! (But like, not in that terrifying murder-clown way. Just like, in the normal, ‘hey, it’s been a while, nice to see you’ way!!) For those of you unaware, that pesky chest infection that took me down is actually pneumonia… and I’ve been at home for what feels like WEEKS binge watching a lot of Miraculous and Critical Role… Try not to analyse this combination too much… So, I guess the update is: I’m still sick and at home, but I’m starting to feel better… and hey,…

    Liebster Award #5

    Good morning bookworms! I am so sorry that I have been away most of this last week. Between travel for work, getting a terrible chest infection (which I still have) and basically falling asleep every time I pick up a book, as well as continuing to make a DnD character for our new game that starts in a week AND playing the Bookish Games, I’ve had a lot on… and I think I need more naps. I definitely need to get over this chest infection. My face, throat and chest…

    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…

  • Sunshine Blogger Award #9

    Good morning bookworms! I know today would normally be Top 5 Tuesday, but Shanah is on a mini hiatus while she has the best sounding break – so I thought, “why don’t I try and catch up on some tags?!” So, the lovely Siobhan @ Siobhan’s novelties tagged me in the Sunshine blogger award back in June! (I mean, I’m kind of catching up?!) Rules Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link back to their blogging site. Answer the questions. Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11…

  • Sunshine Blogger Award #8

    Good morning bookworms! Back in … April (oh gawd, I am officially six months behind on these…) the most lovely Ruqs @ Many Bookish Things tagged me in the Sunshine Blogger Award!! Friends, I just have to say (and please don’t think I’m complaining), as much as I love doing these (because the questions are always different), I am drowning a little in tags at the moment!! I’m trying to only post one per week, but if this is number 8, then I have about 8 more to do –…

    50 Bookish Questions tag

    Good morning bookworms! The loveliest Sam @ Fictionally Sam wrote this AH-MAZING tag, which is FIFTY bookish questions. FIFTY!! We might be here for a while today, so grab a drink and snacks, and strap yourself in! 1. What was the last book you read? The last book I finished was Heartstopper Vol 2 by Alice Oseman. 2. Was it a good one? Yes, I loved it!! 3. What made it good? One of the characters had this beautiful growth throughout the story, so even though the end of Volume 1…

    Top 5… series I need to finish

    Good morning bookworms! Today’s Top 5 Tuesday is ‘series I need to finish’. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by the super lovely Shanah over at the Bionic Bookworm. You can visit her here, and join in for Top 5 Tuesday by checking out all the amazing topics that are coming up! Gentlefriends, I must say, it’s not very often that I start a series and don’t finish it quickly. The only real hinderance here is if I choose to DNF it (a la Hush, Hush), or if I’m waiting for the…
