A bit of April organisation

April seems to have flown by so quickly, I have no idea where all the days have gone. This is only my second real month that I have had my blog and in comparison to the amount of posts in March, I feel like I have already neglected it with the lack of blogging. My aim was to blog at least twice per week but with everything being so busy and then getting a stupid cold, I wasn’t able to post as much as I had hoped. So for May I have decided i’m going to be more organised with my blog and take it a bit more seriously.

ImageIn order to be more organised I created a little time table sort of thing with a to do list. Here i’m going to stick on my post ideas and then put them under the relevant day. This is stuck onto my wall as I thought it would help to motivate me and help me to be a bit more prepared for my posts. You might notice that there is only Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday on the list – and yes, I do know there is four days I have missed off – but my plan is to post every day at the start of the week. And if I happen to miss a day then it will be posted on a different day when I have some spare time so that I will be posting 3 times per week.

I also have a rather sad obsession with Paperchase. I have no idea why fancy paper and overly priced notebooks excite me but hey ho I just could not resist and had to buy it. Unlike the majority of my notepads that are sat in my drawer because I am too scared to use them, I put my pretty pink one to good use. I use it to plan my weekly posts, any other ideas, and to record things such as my monthly followers or stick in any lovely comments I might get so that I can look back through and smile (so feel free to leave a nice comment for my book hahaha). I also picked up a pack of lined cards from Asda and use those to take down any other notes or to plan out things scruffily before I put them in my notebook – I think I might have a tiny bit of OCD when it comes to notebooks, woops.

So yes, theres my little rambly post of the month as its rather late as I type this and I seem to have  babbled on about nothing for a while, BUT you’ve now learned how to put your organisational skills to use for blogging. I will hopefully stick to this plan so I don’t let my blog fall behind again in May.

April Reads

So since the 30 Day Blogging Challenge has ended I have realised that the amount of posts that I have done has decreased significantly so I apologise for that hahaha. Basically, with it being Easter week, its been more of a family week where we’ve had several shopping trips and just gone out and done family things. However, I am aiming to upload at least two posts per week so make sure you check up on my blog regularly or follow me so you recieve updates whenever I upload I new post.

Todays (rather late) post will be about my recent Amazon order. As you will have realised if you have read through a few of my other posts, I am a complete bookworm and can sit and read a book for hours and finish it within a day, I just love reading. However, a couple of weeks ago I started reading The Last Song and literally was glued to the book (I intend to do a little review on it soon) but when I finished it I was devastated because I had no other books to read and so entered the world of Amazon and Goodreads in search of a new book.. but I ended up with three.

ImageThe books I decided on in the end were Something Borrowed, Something Blue, and Gone Girl.

After searching the charts for books I eventually decided on these three after reading the good reviews. I found Gone Girl in the charts and was about fifth when I saw it and the reviews were amazing so I’m excited to give that a read. Its a lot different to the types of books I usually read but I fancied a bit of a change in my selection – plus the cover feels so nice.

I also chose Something Borrowed after recently watching it on Sky and fell in love with it. The storyline is so cute and just my cup of tea. When I watched it I had no idea that it was based on a novel until it appeared in my searches on Amazon and wanted it straight away so I can’t wait to read that and I think that will be the first book I will be reading out of the three. When I was purchasing this, I came across Something Blue which from the title you will probably already know that it is the sequal to Something Borrowed and so obviously I had to get that too.

So now I can’t wait to start my reading. What are you reading at the moment? Have you read any of these books? Leave your comments below
