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 synopsis of your book?


A story of a lot of endings and a lot of new beginnings.


6) Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

When I finish it I hope that I will be traditionally published but this is such a long way off yet. I need to get writing and editing first.


7) How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

I have been writing the WIP for about two years but I really want to finish it this year. I am determined!!!

8) What other books would you compare this story to?

I don't know if there is anything massively similar but for the friendship and ace relationship, I feel like it is close to Radio Silence by Alice Oseman.

9) Who or what inspired you to write the book?

I think that I love the story and I really want other people too. It has lots of subjects that I care about throughout so I really want to talk about them. This book gives me that the opportunity to do that in what I hope turns out to be a happy and lovable story!

10) What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?


It has a strong focus on platonic love especially friendships and family. It also has an asexual main character with many other LGBTQIA+ characters. There are lots of adventures which are set around the UK and London. It has a coming of age feel which deals with leaving home and exam stress and mental illness.

Have you got a WIP? Let me know what it is about in the comments!

See you soon,

Amy

On Turning 22

So on Wednesday (today when this goes up) I will be 22. *is currently listening to 22 by Taylor Swift* Obviously. The thing about turning 22 is the fact that you have just turned 21. I say just it was a whole year ago. 21 which has so many meanings behind it which is what I mentioned in my post last year so turning 22 feels kind of meh.21 felt to me last year as to be some big thing like my whole life was going to change. I was graduating from university after so much in my life felt like it was going to change.But the thing is it didn't.I stayed for a Masters in History. At the same university with people that I have know for some year and new ones and of course the people the people that graduated last year ain't there anymore and I do miss them. Things are still kind of the same.Turning 22 feels like it's in the middle. It's not special. It doesn't hold special meaning. It's just itself. This is how I feel like 2019.2019 is such a middling year for me. I'…

Favourite Books Of The Year (2018)

As it is now 2019 I think it is time to share my favourite books of 2019. I read over 120 books last year, 125 to be exact so there is a lot to choose from so I will be doing a top 10 with 7 honourable mentions so let's get started...

Honourable Mentions:

















Number 10: Theatrical by Maggie Harcourt 


Theatrical was just so fun. I feel in love with everything in the book and loved the romance. I really enjoyed the whole idea of going backstage in the theatre so I would definitely recommend. 
















Number 9: Lord Of Shadows by Cassandra Clare



I am more than happy to say that I was a massive fan of Lady Midnight but there was something about Lord of Shadows that I devoured and loved. That ending also broke me so I hope that I can read Queen of Air And Darkness in 2019.  













Number 8: Are We All Lemmings And Snowflakes? by Holly Bourne

I did really enjoy this book and thought that it was an interesting look at mental illness. I love Holly Bourne anyway so of course, I was going to love this book. I want …

Book Review: Ascension by Victor Dixen

*I am reviewing this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. *

Title: Ascension Author: Victor Dixen Publisher: Hot Key Books Source: Readers First Rating: 5/5 stars
(Amazon|Goodreads)



Book Summary:
Six girls, six boys. Each in the two separate bays of a single spaceship. They have six minutes each week to seduce and to make their choices, under the unblinking eye of the on-board cameras. They are the contenders in the Genesis programme, the world's craziest speed-dating show ever, aimed at creating the first human colony on Mars.

Leonor, an 18 year old orphan, is one of the chosen ones. 
She has signed up for glory.
She has signed up for love.
She has signed up for a one-way ticket.

Even if the dream turns to a nightmare, it is too late for regrets.

Book Review: 

I was excited to read Ascension as Hot Key were describing this as Love Island in space and much like the rest of the UK, I have been hooked by the show that has just finished. This description is so accurate bu…
