Hey Guys!
So first of all, Happy New Year! Sorry, I haven't done a post in a little while, I have been ill for quite a while and just haven't had the chance to write this! Anyway, today I thought I would do something a bit different and review a book for you. As many of you may know, I love YouTubers, especially Zoella!  So as soon as I saw she was releasing a book, I knew I had to pre-order it! I managed to get my hands on it at the end of November and I have just finished it! (I know, I am a slow reader!) So if you haven't seen it, then here is a picture:

You can buy it from Amazon here or from any local Waterstones if you are based in the UK. It's retail price is £12.99
So without giving too much away, basically it's about a teenager called Penny who loves to blog about different things under the name, Girl Online. Things start to go horribly wrong in her life,but then her family takes her to New York and she meets a guy called Noah. They quickly fall in love and are each other soulmates, however Noah has a secret as well which could blow Penny's cover and ruin her closet friendship.
I personally absolutely love the story and I think it's written really well, I particularly think that teenagers will love this book and can relate to it too. I personally can relate to Penny, writing a blog, having a bit of Anxiety and constantly embarrassing myself!! I definitely think that teenagers will relate to the story as it does cover the issues of friendships, relationships, Anxiety and the ups and downs of the internet. I am not just saying this book is just for teenagers though as I am sure adults will enjoy it too, but I think a lot of Zoe's audience are teenagers or young adults and I think this is why it has sold so well and was one of the fastest selling books of 2014! 

I know there has been a lot of controversy over the book being ghost-written, however it would be impossible for Zoe to write this all on her own, so I personally don't have any problem with it and I will always back Zoe up!
I am definitely really proud of Zoe, and can't quite believe how far she has come over the past few years that I have watched her on YouTube and read her blog, she now has over 7 million subscribers, a book out and her own beauty range! WOAH! I think there is a second book coming out this year, which I can't wait for and will definitely read!

I hope you enjoyed this mini review and a seriously urge you to go and get this book now!! 
See you in my next post!
