Ahh, the internet, my happy place! This big giant pile of everything and anything you would like to know, from asteroids to zebras, to belly buttons, to so much more. A huge part of the internet, is YouTube. I guess that by now, everyone is familiar with YouTubers and the stuff they want you to buy, from merch to books. (no tea no shade hun)
And, since we’re all obsessed with these people, we MUST have the stuff they’re coming out with, right?!
I was reading a blog post one or two years ago, and they were saying how great this book is, which really intrigued me. So I got it: best choice ever! I don’t want to spoil any little thing, but I do have to say that this book is on the more cosy side, which is amazing! Reading this book feels like having a coffee with a friend and catching up on what’s been going on in their (very eventful may I add) lives. 11/1o would recommend getting this book. Seriously.
Here’s some basic info if you want to get to know the story a bit better:
February the fifteenth is a very special day for me. It is the day I gave birth to my first child. It is also the day my husband left me…I can only assume the two events weren’t entirely unrelated.
Claire has everything she ever wanted: a husband she adores, a great apartment, a good job. Then, on the day she gives birth to their first baby, James informs her that he’s leaving her. Claire is left with a newborn daughter, a broken heart, and a postpartum body that she can hardly bear to look at.
She decides to go home to Dublin. And there, sheltered by the love of a quirky family, she gets better. So much so, in fact, that when James slithers back into her life, he’s in for a bit of a surprise.
I Hate Myselfie + It Gets Worse
Shane Dawson is the OG on YouTube, let’s be honest. He is just straight up hilarious, and so are his books! They each contain essays from his childhood and not only, and let me just tell you, I’ve read these at least 3 times and I laugh every time! I am seriously in love with this series and I hope a third book will come soon.
The Username Series
Can I just 👏👏👏👏👏👏BRAVO👏👏👏👏👏👏 . Joe Sugg not only is a very entertaining YouTuber, but also absolutely SMASHED it with these books! They are graphic novels, and they give me so much nostalgia! Back when I was little, my dad would show me the comics he used to read when he was my age.
The story is fascinating, and that’s why I got the whole trilogy. Please check it out, give’em a read! You won’t regret it.
Here’s a bit of info about the story:
The first book by YouTube star Joe Sugg tells the story of Evie, a socially-isolated teenage girl who struggles to fit in at high school. Always looking for a way to escape, she spends her nights supporting her terminally-ill father, who is tirelessly working on a computer program. When her father passes away, Evie is forced to live with her aunt, uncle, and cousin-Mallory-who is the most popular girl in school and the bane of Evie’s existence.
One night, as she’s going through her father’s computer, Evie stumbles on a strange file that sucks her into a virtual world. As Evie explores this strange, new land, she learns it was the project her father was working so tirelessly on: a virtual Eden where Evie can get away and be herself. However, Evie is not alone; Mallory also discovers the world and her presence causes the idyll to descend into chaos. Now Evie must save the virtual world or lose her last connection to her father.
(I’m only telling you about the first book, I don’t want to spoil anything about the next ones and ruin your experience, because that would suck.)
I hope I gave you a bit of inspiration as to which book you should read next! Also, what books did the Internet make you buy? Let me know.
Love ya. Cheers, bye x
