I have been a Zoella fan for a few years now and continue getting more and more addicted (in a good way). For those who do not know Zoella (or Zoe Sugg), she is a British fashion and beauty vlogger. She is very entertaining, funny, and inspiring. I started watching Zoella because I was all caught up with my regular YouTubers and needed someone new to start following. I instantly fell in love with Zoe’s personality and began watching all of her videos. She eventually opened the doors for me to other British YouTubers such as Tanya Burr, Joe Sugg, Alfie Deyes, and Jim Chapman. I, like most of Zoe’s subscribers, absolutely adore Zalfie! (that is Zoe and Alfie) #relationshipgoals 🙂
Zoe Sugg has expanded off into creating beauty products and has also written an amazing novel, Girl Online. I recently purchased her book and could not put it down. Girl Online is a romantic drama, which is far from what I usually read, but nonetheless a page turner. Personally, I tend to read more fictitious novels involving magic and great imagination. Yes, I am a huge Harry Potter fan (my bookmark might have been a hint) ❤ I decided to give this book a whirl and absolutely loved every page. The story itself surrounds a young girl, Penny, who begins blogging anonymously about her problems and receives warm support from her readers. Penny finds herself falling in love and when one of her blogs goes viral she learns who she can and cannot trust, and learns to deal with her fears. One of the things I love about this book is how well the reader can relate to Penny and the problems she blogs about; problems such as anxiety, ungrateful friends, and cyber bullying. I believe that everyone has dealt with at least one of these problems throughout their lives and this book provides great advice on how to move forwards. I have also faced similar issues in my life and maybe I might write a blog on how it affected me and what I did to move on. It’s never easy writing about something personal, but if it ends up helping someone it is worth it. Another thing I loved about this book is it includes the blog posts Penny writes and some key text conversations she has, which provides the reader to better connect with the main character. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a good summer read, and trying new things isn’t the worst thing ever. I should really continue exploring other genres, aside from fantasy and wizardry. I absolutely love Zoe Sugg and cannot wait for the second book, Girl Online: On Tour, which is to be released this autumn.
