My Writing Corner & An Announcement!

Hey Bookworms!

Before I tell you about my writing life, I have an announcement to make. Starting Monday I'll be on a vacation till the 10th of June. I won't be posting on the blog (but I'll be active on social media 😉) except for a Blitz I signed up for on 5th June. I'll miss you!

Now, about my writing life!

For this post, I'll just write about the beginning of my life as a 'writer’.

I think I started writing in the 7th grade. I remember collaborating with my bench partner on a poem, and I think that's where it began.

Though my favourite type of literature is novels, I also enjoy writing poems, and that's what I wrote up until I was 16.

Sometime in the October of 2016, a friend told me about Wattpad. And that's where my writing flourished. I wrote a novella there, and made some great friends too! Currently, I only have a poetry collection up there, which houses around 60 poems. Feel free to check it out:

I didn't have much time to write the last two years, because 10th and 12th grades are a big deal here and I had to focus on my studies.

But now that I'm free, I'm working on a fantasy novel, which has turned out to be the longest thing I've ever written—currently, it stands at a word count of 65,000 words—and it's nowhere near the end! Here's a sneak peek into my WIP!

Let me know what you think about it in the comments!

Oh, and Swibells is the pseudonym I use for writing! ♥️

Cover Review:

The cover is colorful and eye-catching. Definitely my type of cover. I loved it. 

Book Review:

The first thing I did after finishing this book was look for it's sequel. I found out that it releases in August, so I rushed to NetGalley and requested it. I seriously don't know how I'll live if my request is declined. 

This book is perfection. There's time travel, there's messy romance, there's YA and there's a whole lot of suspense. I mean, what's not to like? 

Despite their many flaws, Miles and Adam are such beautiful crafted characters. They're real. So is Bethany. 

I felt so many emotions while reading this book. I laughed, I cried, I felt afraid for them and I got angry. Damn did I get angry!

The character I hated the most though, was Ana. She wasn't supposed to be the villain in the story, but she's the one who I ended up hating the most. You'll know why when you read it. 

All in all, In The Present Tense was a beautiful, mesmerising page-turner that left me wanting for more.
