Hey, I’m GracieFM and I am absolutely terrible at these things, so I apologise in advance!

I am an English Literature student in the UK and I made this blog in the hopes of improving my writing skills to prepare me for the hectic times that will inevitably be coming with my final two years of university, to hopefully put the skills I’m learning on my course to good use and to keep me writing, even if it is just a small blog post a week.

On this blog I will mainly be posting reviews of books that I have managed to read in the limited free time I will get between course work and seminar work, as well as monthly book goals and any hauls from book buying trips because my fellow english literature students and boyfriend are very bad influences on me when it comes to my book buying habits (it’s not the other way round, I promise, just ignore anything they say).

Some ramblings about my own life may appear occasionally, telling you all about the (somewhat) adventures I get up to during my summer and university life, so I apologise about those and the unnecessary amount of pictures I will probably post along side the ramblings but hey, I have to tell someone about my day, right? Hopefully stuff like that won’t bore you guys to death, and I will try to make it as interesting as possible for you to read, but with an excitable puppy for a boyfriend and an actual excitable puppy who isn’t going to want to read?

Well that’s all I can think to write at the moment, if any additional ideas pop into my head for this blog I will try to remember to add them here (but that may take a while, I have the memory of a goldfish). If I forget to post during any week then just bombard me with messages to give me a kick up the butt and I’ll get my boyfriend to do the same. I hope this wasn’t too painful for you all to read and it was enjoyable enough that you maybe want to stick around to see what useless ramblings I can come up with next, until then, bye guys!

        I was the same actually, I hadn’t heard much about this tag before I was tagged but I had so much fun completing it. And that’s all right, it took me about a week after I was tagged to finally get around to it, take all the time you need.

        I’m going away this weekend, so I’m trying to get a couple of posts done today to schedule while I’m gone, but I like taking my time with tags, that’s while I’ll probably do it when I get back. It does look really fun though! I’m excited to get to it 🙂

        Are you going anywhere nice? I hope you have a good weekend away as well. I haven’t tried scheduling any posts yet, I’ll have to soon but until then…
        I have quite a few tags I still need to do so it takes me a while to get around to them as well. But I thought this one was really fun, I had a great time coming up with the answers.

        Just down to Plymouth for a couple of days, a group of us are going because it’s one of the guys girlfriends birthday’s so we thought we’d have a weekend trip down there 🙂 Thank you! If I get enough good pictures I’ll make a post about it 🙂
        I’ve done it a couple of times and they post a little bit after the time you’ve scheduled them for so I normally get impatient and just post them myself anyway :L
        It does seem different to the typical tags you see, I’m excited to get to it when I’m back 🙂

        I hope you have a great time in Plymouth, it’s always fun when you go away with friends 🙂
        I should probably try scheduling posts at some point before I go away. I’d probably end up doing the same, posting them myself if they don’t on the scheduled time but if I’m somewhere without reliable internet it could be useful.

        It was a really good weekend! I didn’t get a lot of sleep, on got back late last night to have to get up early this morning for university, but it was a lot of fun!
        Scheduling posts helped me a lot this weekend, I only did one but I was out with no internet so when I got back I’d checked and it was all up and sorted!

        I glad you had a good time away. I was thinking of scheduling some posts when I’m away on holiday. My friend and I are planning some trips this year and it’ll be nice to not have to worry about posting, especially taking into account the different time-zones and possibly spotty internet access 🙂

        yeah I find it really useful for those situations, and I find that I get into certain moods where I just want to write load son posts, so it’s great to have them stored up and scheduled, especially with starting university again, and sometimes you find you just don’t want to write something. This doesn’t happen a lot but for when it does it’s great to know I have something I can post!

        Yeah it’s a great plan, I have a few posts in my Drafts, but they’re all ones I need to wait for a certain date to post you know, Top Ten Tuesday posts for following weeks or ARC reviews and such. It’d be handy to have a few I could post at any time, in case I’m in a slump, reading or blogging wise!

        Yeah that happens to me sometimes as well, but I try and come up with ones that can be posted any time, even if it’s just one, so I feel more organised. It is definitely handy! I think I’m going to have to bulk write some soon because of all the university books I need to read!
