Three Hallows Book Club December: Dear Amy Powis (A Dear Evan Hansen Inspired Post)

This post is part of the Three Hallows Book Club that I do with Rachel from RacheLeanne and Alex from Alex Chappell. This month we all buddy read Dear Evan Hansen and are all creating posts surrounding it. For mine, I choose to write an open letter to myself which is what Evan does in the book and gets the plot rolling. So let's get started...



Dear Amy Powis,

This is really weird to say but we are going to do it anyway but today is going to be a good day.

Maybe this is quite weird because it's already 2pm in the day which means that much of it has already happened but I hope that today will still be OK. Not just OK but good. Great? No just good. I can take good for now. 

So this is weird right? It's Christmas. Boxing day when I am writing this but I have just been a mess lately. I mean there is the idea that Christmas is the perfect time of the year but for me this year? This is far from the case. 

I've been anxious for the last couple of weeks and I wish that it would just stop. I have been worrying about so many things that I don't even know where to start. Everything for health-related things to remembering and replaying that one conversation that I had that one time that I regret. Replaying itself over and over and over in my mind barely giving myself a relief. 

I am meant to say that today is going to be the day that is good and I think for the most part it is but I don't know if that's the case. 

I know that I feel better than I did a couple of weeks where I was on the verge of tears over a missed bus but I'm far from perfect. 

I've written loads of these to myself though and I can say that it is going to get better because it always does. It ALWAYS does. That might not be today. It might not even be tomorrow but it will. I know it will. 

So hang on it there. 

Sincerely Me



Dear Evan Hansen

Here is a summary of the book...


From the show's creators comes the groundbreaking novel inspired by the Broadway smash hit Dear Evan Hansen.

Dear Evan Hansen,

Today's going to be an amazing day and here's why...


When a letter that was never meant to be seen by anyone draws high school senior Evan Hansen into a family's grief over the loss of their son, he is given the chance of a lifetime: to belong. He just has to stick to a lie he never meant to tell, that the notoriously troubled Connor Murphy was his secret best friend.

Suddenly, Evan isn't invisible anymore--even to the girl of his dreams. And Connor Murphy's parents, with their beautiful home on the other side of town, have taken him in like he was their own, desperate to know more about their enigmatic son from his closest friend. As Evan gets pulled deeper into their swirl of anger, regret, and confusion, he knows that what he's doing can't be right, but if he's helping people, how wrong can it be?

No longer tangled in his once-incapacitating anxiety, this new Evan has a purpose. And a website. He's confident. He's a viral phenomenon. Every day is amazing. Until everything is in danger of unraveling and he comes face to face with his greatest obstacle: himself.

A simple lie leads to complicated truths in this big-hearted coming-of-age story of grief, authenticity and the struggle to belong in an age of instant connectivity and profound isolation.

Thank you for reading and don't forget to check out Alex and Rachel's post. Don't forget to check out next month's theme which I will release next week. 

See you soon,

Amy

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…

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:
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…
