When Life Gets In The Way...

So ever since I've started book blogging I haven't really told the people who read my blog (if their are regular readers of my blog) much about myself, so I thought that I would do that now...

Hi, 

I'm Amy, 

I'm 18 years old and I live in England, 

And,

I have left school and have got into my first choice University which I start in October, 

This means that just sometimes life can get in the way...

           I suppose that this is some weird life update post and an explanation why I haven't uploaded a blog post since Thursday meaning that I missed both a Friday and Sunday post. This is because on Thursday I got the results for me to get into my choice Uni that I have been preparing for this journey and my living room has changed into a University stock pile. This means that I have had limited time to read which also means no time read these and limited time to write blog posts. Over the weekend I also went to Summer In The City (a YouTube convention in London) which again meant a lack of time to write blog posts and yet again life just got in the way.
            The fact is this may be the first life update post of many. Going to university is an unexpected journey and I don't know if I will be able to carry on making them as frequently as I do now although I love really love making them. I am saying this as if Uni starts tomorrow but we have a month of as many blog posts as humanly possible. 

Live in the now!

Thank you for reading this and I hope it made some kind of sense. 

See you Soon, 

Amy

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti
