Girl Online - Zoe Sugg Book Review

Tuesday, 30 December 2014

Hi guys! It's been a while, I thought I would start back up with a review of the book 'Girl Online' by Zoe Sugg. This was one of my presents for Christmas off my boyfriend as he knew how much I love Zoe. I fell in love with this book as soon I seen it, the front cover is absolutely beautiful and so girly. I also love the fact that it is a hardback book, I prefer these. I started reading this book on Boxing day morning and finished it by the evening, I really couldn't put it down. Many of you probably know who Zoe Sugg is aka Zoella, if not, where have you been?
The main character of the book is Penny, this character is so easy to relate to, as you can relate to all the teenage troubles she is facing such as boys, troubling friendships and anxiety. Penny has a blog and she uses it to log all her thoughts and feelings, however her blog is anonymous as she calls herself 'girl online'. Penny starts facing a lot of trouble at school and her family decide to whisk her away to New York with the company of her best friend Elliot. In New York, Penny meets an american, 'rock star' looking guy named Noah. Penny starts falling for Noah very quickly and captures all these secret moments on her blog, however Noah has a secret too which could ruin everything for Penny. 

I absolutely loved this book as it was such an easy read, the time went by so quick and I didn't even realise that I had been reading it all day. I found it very difficult to put the book down after starting it. The characters in the book are so easy to relate to as you realise that you have faced some of their problems in your teenage years. I was so happy to find out that Zoe was planning on releasing a second book as I feel that there is so much more that we could learn from the characters as you only really touch on their personalities in 'Girl Online'. All in all, I am really impressed with this book and would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun and girly story.



  1. I read a lot and it is one of my hobbies but I hate to admit that I'm a fairly slow reader yet after seeing such good feed back on this book I believe that it could be a 'finish-in-one-day' book - I'll give it a try :D
    Lovely post!

  2. I loved reading this book too and I wrote my own review recently (or maybe it is more of a discussion about it's ghostwriter). I too finished it in literally two days since it was just that incredible. Great review!

  3. I got this for Christmas but haven't got round to reading it yet! I didn't know she was planning a second book that's quite cool! Abi :)
