Book Review | Girl Online by Zoe Sugg

I had no idea GirlOnline would take off the way it has - I can't believe I now have 5432 followers, thanks so much! - and the thought of opening up to you all about this is terrifying, but here goes...

Penny has a secret.

Under the alias GirlOnline, she blogs about school dramas, boys, her mad, whirlwind family - and the panic attacks she's suffered from lately. When things go from bad to worse, her family whisks her away to New York, where she meets the gorgeous, guitar-strumming Noah. Suddenly Penny is falling in love - and capturing every moment of it on her blog.

But Noah has a secret too. One that threatens to ruin Penny's cover - and her closest friendship - forever.

If you've seen my Top 10 Books I Read in 2014 list, then you'll know that I loved this book. It's just taken me a while to get to the review.
I'd heard a lot about this book. So many good things, and some bad as well. Now, I feel like I'm in a different position to most of the people who have been talking about this book. Most of what I've read online about this book, has come from subscribers of Zoella's channel on YouTube. That's not me.
I'd sort of heard of Zoella before, but I hadn't ever seen any of her videos. I'd seen her occasionally in other videos of other people I was subscribed to, but beyond that. Nothing.
There have been a bunch of youtubers releasing books recently, and though a few have grabbed my attention. This is the only one that I was really interested in.
The story sounded exactly like the kind of this I love, and I wasn't wrong. From start to finish I love the voice the narrator gave to this story. I loved the characters, and the emotional journey Penny went on. I loved the travel aspect, and the love story.
There are some books that I read, and I know that they'll be the kind of book that I'll want to read again, and this is one of them.
Well written, with a great story, fantastic characters and kept me turning the pages. Girl Online is a fun read and one I completely enjoyed, and would definitely recommend.
