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

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
