This Amazing Review is Not On Fire!

Hello Internet!
Following the reviews of Girl Online and Username:Evie, here's another Youtuber book review...Yep you guessed it right! It's TABINOF or for those who aren't part of the phandom 'The Amazing Book Is Not On Fire' by Dan Howell and Phil Lester.Dan and Phil are by far one of my favorite youtubers and the moment I saw their book trailer I knew I had to read this!
This book definitely lives up to its title! It's amazing and didn't catch fire...yet...
So let's start from the start.Just looking at the cover can tell you that this book is going to be just as crazy and fun as they are.And while it does have the tagline 'The World Of Dan and Phil' you don't need to be their fan to read this. In fact if you're just curious about who these people are then this book is the perfect place to start! It doesn't take much to get you hooked on to the book..I didn't even reach past the dedication and I knew I would be pulling an all-nighter with this one..
I think the reason that makes it so interesting is that it's not the biography of a youtuber or a work of fiction by one either. This is literally their world mould into a book! It starts right from their births and goes on telling their story of how they became the people we now know them as.
I love how instead of just narrating their past they decide to make it more personal and authentic by adding pages from their diaries and dream journals.(If you're reading this Dan...I hope you're working on your handwriting..XD) You don't just get a glimpse into their lives but right into their minds with pages like Going Deep and Brain Farts(yep..that's an actual thing).
But I think the best part is that you don't just read this book..you can hear them telling you about their adventures in Japan and Vegas (I still don't think the mafia was involved..) and urging you to find out what dining chair you are (I'm the orange one!)
Then of course there's the Phanga and the Phanart and the Phanfics( The Urge and The Hand...like seriously guys...)
Now if you still don't think you should read this book, here's a piece of advice: Go read this book!
If you're not interested in Dan and Phil you might still learn a lot of things like how to breed hamsters or advice on starting a Youtube channel and most importantly How to draw the perfect Cat Whiskers!
So go pick up this extremely aesthetically appealing book on which these young men have obviously worked so hard!
Or if you have already read it then tell us what your reaction was in the comments below!
See you all soon!
Till Then,
Read, Write, Relish!

Ooooh! A Graphic Novel

Hello Readers,
How have you guys been, its been quite a few days since our last post. Let's see what I have got for you lovelies today! Shall we?
A graphic novel according to me is an alternative creative universe that I would  love to travel every day if you'd allow me. And there wasn't anything wrong about other kind of books, but these books captivated me as a young girl with its colors and the message boxes.
I recently read a graphic novel by a Youtuber..... I know you might be thinking here's another antisocial person who sits in front of Youtube the entire day, but guess what its up to you what you watch and why you watch. I watch in search of creativity, and this guy called Joe Sugg also known as Thatcher Joe is crazy and has got a rather weirdly tuned mind, I suppose. He's written or rather, crafted the graphic novel called 'Username Evie'.

Evie is a very lonely girl who doesn't seem to fit in any of the groups in her class and is not even close to being as popular as her cousin (who hates her, BTW). Evie's dad in his last days dedicated his entire time to create an ESCAPE for his daughter, which Evie takes a while to figure out, and once she does she doesn't want to stop. E.scape was  programmed to evolve the way the visitors of the place thought or felt. So, if you are angry then you see that the people in the program are angry too. Evie and her cousin land in this world creating different types of people and the stronger your emotion, more massive is the response. But once a creature is evolved it can't change the way it feels, it continues to grow the same way as the first wave of emotion that hit it. So with all this happening there's hope for Evie to meet her virtual dad if she makes it to the finish of E.scape.
Will she make it?What troubles does she face as she searches for her father?Does she really escape the real world into this virtual space of her own? Is it even her own? 
Read the Novel to find out about it! I've always loved graphic novels and this one didn't let me down. Good job book, you lived to my expectations! I surely suggest you to read this book.It might open new doors for us, wonders could happen.
Share your thoughts with me!
Until next time,
Read, Write, Relish....

Girl Online Review

Hello Readers,
It's been a long time since we began,
I thought let's be more punctual with the posts and to begin with let's start with a sweet book review, to welcome a precious New Year.
Girl Online is a novel by a well known, British Beauty Youtuber, Zoe Sugg who goes by the name of Zoella to her fans. She has over 9.7 million subscribers and a ton of awards in her name.
Girl Online has a typical across the sea love story with a modern twist. The story evolves around Penny - a teenage girl with a passion of photography who is a bit clumsy and anxious  (a lot actually).
As she faces the world, she struggles to deal with her school, friends and "adolescence" in general.
But Zoe makes the readers love the character as she is an inspiring blogger who has her identity covered, and goes by the name Girl Online.
She created the blog as that seemed the only place she could truly express and be herself (excluding her gay best friend Elliot, who has to deal with him family's parenting issues). She keeps herself out of public events as she suffers from strokes at weird times leading her to blank out and faint. And she later realizes this is a phenomena called "panic attack", which started since her family experienced a frightening car crash.
Slowly her blog earns fame and she's happy to share her experience with her readers and accept their unconditional support. But when Penny gets an opportunity to take a picture for her school play, she accidentally fell off the stage, flashing her knickers, which soon becomes viral throughout the Internet.
Penny learns it the hard way that a lot of hate goes around the internet, it just catches like forest fire.
Once her parents and her brother Tom hear about this they help her out by planning to go to New York for Christmas Eve as Penny's mother is a wedding planner and she has to arrange a "Downtown Abbey" themed wedding at very posh hotel. The family go along with Elliot to NY but Tom couldn't make it, and Penny soon falls in love with Noah in the trip, even though she has no clue about his identity.
After the holiday romance, she figures out that Noah is a famous musician with a huge YouTube fan following, and supposedly has a girlfriend who is a very famous pop singer. And this information about Noah and Penny becomes viral, which makes Penny hate the Internet, and she vows never to go online again.

With Elliot facing his family after coming out, Penny struggling with her love life and enmity from all her friends, Noah who is now angry at Penny as he believes she failed him things take a turn but this time for good or bad?? Read the book to figure that out!
This book allows a teenager to feel vulnerable, strong, independent, clumsy, anxious, and to also be aware of the Internet and bad company as friends, is all okay and its part of your life. This book might be too sweet to be true but it allows you to dream and inspires you to blog.
Personally I love blogging so I was connected to the book throughout. And the second book Girl Online: On Tour is out now too.So comment below if you want me to write a review about it. Or any other book you want a review of. 
Happy New Year readers..
Until next time,
Read, Write, Relish
