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

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…

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

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…

I hadn't heard of the Curse of Time when I received an email to be part of the blog tour but being a person who loves to read YA fantasy I knew I had to give it a read. I really enjoyed The Curse of Time and it is a real…
