Hi! Welcome to my blog! My name is Grace, I live in London and i’m almost a quarter of a century old!
I started this blog a couple of months ago because I wanted to get back into reading and writing. I’m still figuring out what I want this blog to be focused on but I’ve managed to narrow it down to mainly Books and Lifestyle. I mostly read classics, detective/mystery and books that suddenly become popular – just so I can see what all the hype is about. If you have any book recommendations that you think i’ll enjoy, please let me know. 😀
I’m also thinking of doing book review requests – look out for that soon!
By my estimations, i’d say I’m around half way into my goal in hopefully securing a full-time job in publishing (trust me when I say it’s not easy). I have a B.A degree in French and English Literature (à mes français, n’hésitez pas à dire bonjour!) which i’m trying to put into good use through this blog.
1. Meaning behind my URL?
The domain page for ‘heygrace‘ was taken so I decided to reference a line from one of my favourite characters, in one of my favourite book series… 3 guesses for which red-haired character I’m talking about? ;D
2. First career you wanted as a child? To be an Olsen twin
3. Which Deathly Hallow would you pick? The resurrection stone
4. Tea or coffee? TEA! I can’t go a day without it (unless it’s a super warm day). My go-to is English breakfast, I do like (black) coffee from time to time though,
65 Hogwarts House? Hufflepuff 🙂
