Review: Girl Online by Zoe Sugg a.k.a Zoella.

When I bought this book, I honestly didn’t have very high hopes, what with Zoella being a blogger and a YouTube star, I really didn’t think she could succeed in the book writing business too.

With that in mind, I still purchased the book, because I am a Zoella fan, and I hoped that she would do well. I do think that the book was good, but it wasn’t excellent, and I was slightly disappointed after hearing all the hype about it.

IMG_0099Girl Online is the story of a young blogger named Penny who, when visiting America with her parents, falls in love with a young American. However, not all is as it seems and after falling head over hells in love, all hell breaks loose. Girl Online is certainly very quirky and a easy and reasonable read, with a very easy to follow (although somewhat cliche) storyline.

The cover itself is probably a huge selling point of Girl Online as it matches the story so well, and honestly, it is so pretty and relaxing to look at. I love how Zoe Sugg has designed this cover and how well it plays in with the plot.IMG_0100

I do think that this book is okay, but it’s not really for me and isn’t one that I would be re-reading. With that said as a debut book it is above the average but is slightly too cheesy and too based off her own life for my liking. Also, I think that the ending was a bit predictable as it is your typical girl meets boy kind of story and so I knew where it was heading ages before I got there. However, if you are looking for a book that makes you happy and helps you to deal with anxiety issues and just to pass the time, then this is definitely one to pick up.

Keep reading xox.
