The WIP (Work In Progress) Tag

So I haven't really spoken about my book much on the blog but I am writing a YA book so I wanted to write about it on here! This was created by Jessi Elliot I think so feel free to check out her video. Let's get started...
1) What is the working title of your book?
My working title is To Be Continued. I'm not really sure if I could call it something else but I like this title so far.

2) Where did the idea come from for your book?
I've had the idea for the longest time since I was about 16 and honestly, I have no idea where it came from but I'm happy that I discovered it.
3) What genre does your book fall under?
It is a YA contemporary but some of the characters are a little older being 19 up to 21.
4) Which actors would you choose to play in your movie rendition?
I literally have no idea. I've always had an idea that I would want someone unknown to play Emily who is the main protagonist but I have no idea for the other people involved.
5) What is the one sentence…

Book Summary:
It is a companion novel to Dumplin', which follows supporting characters from the first book in the months after Willowdean's star turn in the Clover City pageant. 
Millie Michalchuk has gone to fat camp every year since she was a girl. Not this year. This year she has new plans to chase her secret dream—and to kiss her crush. Callie Reyes is the pretty girl who is next in line for dance team captain and has the popular boyfriend. But when it comes to other girls, she’s more frenemy than friend. When circumstances bring the girls together over the course of a semester, they will surprise everyone (especially themselves) by realizing they might have more in common than they ever imagined.

Book Summary: 
Music is not bound by time...
Adeena Stuart is a struggling cellist ready to give up on her dream of landing a spot with the National Arts Centre Orchestra. All that changes when she receives a musical score, lost for almost 300 years in a Scottish castle, sent by her dying grandmother. When the score is played on the oldest surviving cello ever made in the UK, the music connects Adeena directly to the past as Katharine Carnegie, struggling to find words to complete her symphonic tour-de-force in the midst of 18th Century political rebellion that is tearing apart Scotland and England. But Adeena is not a scientist or historian. What she wants more than anything is to create and compose. As she is buffeted back and forth between the past and pre…

Book Summary: 
Hadrian Marlowe, a man revered as a hero and despised as a murderer, chronicles his tale in the galaxy-spanning debut of the Sun Eater series, merging the best of space opera and epic fantasy.

It was not his war.

On the wrong planet, at the right time, for the best reasons, Hadrian Marlowe started down a path that could only end in fire. The galaxy remembers him as a hero: the man who burned every last alien Cielcin from the sky. They remember him as a monster: the devil who destroyed a sun, casually annihilating four billion human lives--even the Emperor himself--against Imperial orders.

But Hadrian was not a hero. He was not a monster. He was not even a soldier.

Fleeing his father and a future as a torturer, Hadrian finds himself stranded on a…

ARC August Wrap Up

It is finally September which means that August is over and for me, that means that ARC August is over. ARC August was the idea that you could catch up on all of your ARC whether they had been released or not. 

I used this opportunity to catch up on both reviews and ARCs and although the first half of the month was going so well. The second half of the month did not. I'm a mood reader so I read a lot of books that I was in the mood for which was good because I really wanted to read some of the books. I did, however, get all the reviews I wanted to post out which means I am a lot less behind than I was before. So overall it was a good month and I read 13 books I think. So let's get started...

Book Summary: 
Third and final instalment of this critically acclaimed young adult alternative historical series that began with Front Lines and Silver Stars

It's 1944, and it feels to everyone like the war will never end. Rio Richlin, Frangie Marr and Rainie Shulterman have all received accolades, been 'heroes', earned promotion - in short, they've all done 'enough' to allow them to leave this nightmare and go home. But they don't.

D-Day, June 6th 1944. On that day, many still doubted the American soldier.
By June 7th no one did.
Book Review:
