Hi! My name is Meg, and I am the person behind thebookishlinguist. Second year linguistics student by day, avid reader and netflix binger by night. I love taking photos for my instagram, reading and writing book reviews, always with a cat on my knee.
My favourite genres are contemporary, romance, historical fiction, YA and thriller. I started sharing my reading journey on my bookstagram account, @thebookishlinguist, and I wanted to start a blog to write about all the bookish parts of my life.
I love to chat about all things bookish (and all things generally) so feel free to contact me on here or any of my social medias. I am also open to inquiries about review requests.

I’m not really sure how to start my first post, but I suppose hello and welcome to my blog!
I’ve finally done it. I’ve thought about blogging for quite some time, and not just book blogging. I first wanted to start a blog some years ago – I wanted to be one of those lifestyle bloggers with titles like 5 Ways to Sleep Better and the 10 Benefits of Green Tea! Only, I’ve never really cared about tea, and my sleeping pattern definitely shouldn’t be copied from! So I abandoned that idea, but I’ve always admired bloggers, and wanted one myself. And then in the summer I made my bookstagram on a whim, and my passion for reading has fully reignited. Some of my captions are so lengthy they may as well be blog posts, and I thought I might as well create one.
I have really enjoyed documenting the books I have bought, and the books I am reading over on my instagram, and I am looking forward to sharing my (very long, sorry!!) reviews on this blog. I am also hoping to share my 2020 reading goals, TBRs and book hauls. I am really looking forward to following lots of other book blogs and becoming even more obsessed with books and reading.
I really hope that you enjoy reading my posts, and would like to follow me as I embark on the journey of blogging. They’re also linked at the top of my page (hopefully, as I’ve still not quite got the hang of this!), but I will leave my insta and Goodreads below in case you want to follow me there as well – I’d love to chat.
