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
