Bored with her daily dose of hosting television shows, English presenter Alexa Chung has written "It", a book on topics like style, music and heartbreak.

"I wrote it because I was bored and wanted to create something alongside hosting television shows. I wanted an extra project to focus on and it was a good excuse to reflect on the last few years and rummage through some long lost photo albums," vogue.co.uk quoted the 29-year-old as saying.

She says the text in the book is simple and easy to understand.

"The text in this book isn't complicated or dense. It's almost a stream of consciousness about several topics so it was fun to write. I composed it all in emails to my editor, because I don't have Microsoft Word," she further said.

In the book, Chung has also included sketches drawn by her, personal photographs and images of her icons.

"It is basically an image-heavy autobiography. The only things lacking are chapters and gritty details. There is plenty that I'm not ready to share though - I also wanted to make sure that I keep things for myself. Sometimes I have an over-share problem," she added.
