About Me

My review requests are open, please send me an email at powisamy@gmail.com, and I will consider requests, and I will reply as soon as possible. 

Hi, I am Amy, a 24-year-old girl from Dagenham (although I now live in Colchester but try to visit London frequently just not in the middle of a pandemic) who enjoys reading books and blogging about them. 

I have graduated from university with a 2.1 in Modern History and have graduated with an MA in History part-time. (I know a bit weird but what can I say I like history!) 

Now that I have a lot more free time, you can find me
 watching YouTube videos, watching films or TV or my job at a popular fried chicken restaurant. I am trying to move on from this job and hope to get a job in publishing. I am really interested in joining as a Rights Assistant or somewhere in Publicity. So if anyone reading this needs someone who is in publishing and who has an opening hit me up!  

In the middle of all of this, I am trying to maintaining a consistent schedule on my blog, which explores my love for books and other things. Since I no longer do my degree, expect a few posts about history and writing to pop up on the odd occasion!

I am a writer who is currently in the middle of writing my first book (and her second. I don't make sense!), I will sometimes post on my writing progress and hope to do so in the future so watch out for that. Also, I am trying to write a new idea that is slow and steady. I have written a lot about my writing journey so far so of course there is going to be a lot more in the journey!

I hope you join me on my blogging journey, which I have been doing for almost 6 years now. (AH!!!!)

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
