Rating: 5/5

My Review:

Penny and Noah are back and still happily together as Noah prepares to go on tour with Penny coming with him. Between dealing with her anxiety and her boyfriend's busy schedule, Penny quickly learns that life on the road isn't easy. But along the way Penny gains new friends, as well as unwanted enemies that she wasn't prepared for. Can Penny handle life on tour?

As you guys know, I'm a huge fan of Zoe's so I was really excited for this book especially because I loved the first one. Zoe didn't disappoint, at least on my end. I really enjoyed this sequel. It was so nice to have all the characters back as well as some new characters (I love Larry!!). It was also nice to read moments that as a fan of Zoe's you can tell where she got inspiration for certain things throughout the book. I really loved this series!

I'm so proud of all Zoe is accomplishing right now. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.

Have you read the Girl Online series? What your thoughts? Let me know in the comments.

Addicted to YouTube: Part 2




Here's my next batch of YouTubers that I watch on a regular basis. There's plenty more that I'm subscribed to so I'll probably make more posts like this in the future. But for now, these six plus the six from yesterday are the main YouTube channels that I watch frequently.

Marcus Butler
YouTube channel(s): Marcus Butler | MoreMarcus | MarcusButlerGames

I don't remember the first time I saw Marcus in a video. It was either a collab with Zoe or Joe. But I remember going on to his channel and really enjoyed his videos, and I still do!

I love his passion, dedication and creativity that he puts into his videos. This year, he released a book called Hello Life that just came out here in Canada yesterday (that I went out in the rain to go pick up because I was so excited for it). Marcus is an inspiring guy, and I can't wait to not only read his book, but see what he comes up with next.


Niomi Smart
YouTube channel: Niomi Smart

Niomi is Marcus's girlfriend, and she only just started with YouTube about a year and a half ago. But I remember being so excited when she started her channel. I'm so glad she did because her channel is one of my absolute favourites.

I love that both Niomi and Marcus are healthy living people because I would love to start eating healthier and they are inspiring to me to actually do it. Niomi is really creative with coming up with new healthy recipes, I can't wait to try them. Her channel also has fashion and beauty. I'm constantly looking to her for inspiration.


Jim Chapman
YouTube(s): Jim Chapman | EveryDayJim

Everyone's "best friend"! Like Marcus, I can't remember the first time I saw Jim, but it was most likely in a collab with one of the YouTubers from yesterday's post. But I immediately loved him! His such a likeable guy that you can't help but be happy after watching Jim's videos.

He's also without a doubt the best dressed man in the world. I could be wrong about this, but I'm pretty sure he was named Britain's GQ Man of the Year. Jim is accomplishing so much right now, with not only being named best dressed, but he's doing so many red carpet interviews with celebrities in London. I can't wait to see what comes next for Jim Chapman! Whatever it is, it'll be amazing!!



Tanya Burr
YouTube channel: Tanya Burr

Tanya is quite possibly the sweetest person on the internet! Every video I watch of hers, she just seems like one of the nicest people in the world. Her make-up tutorials are amazing. I love her style, and I feel like I can relate to her so much.

I first saw Tanya in one of Zoe's videos. It's amazing to remember that, and to have watched her accomplish all these amazing things over the last 2 years. She has her own beauty range, wrote a book, is on popular magazine covers. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!



Dan Howell
YouTube channel(s): danisnotonfire | DanAndPhilGAMES

A YouTuber that I didn't discover from watching a Sugg video! I found Dan's channel randomly. One of his videos showed up on my tumblr dash one day, and he was so hilarious that I immediately subscribed to him.

I love Dan's sense of humour, and how relatable his videos are. He has a way of being really honest about everything which is really nice. His videos always make me laugh. You can't not love Dan!! He just recently released a book with his roommate, Phil.





Phil Lester
YouTube channel(s): AmazingPhil | DanAndPhilGAMES

After finding Dan's videos, naturally I found Phil's videos and loved them and him! Phil is like the innocent version of Dan. He's always so nice and sweet in his videos whilst being hilarious!

I love his gaming channel that he does with Dan. It's clear why they are best friends. They complement each other so well. Both Phil and Dan have second channels as well, but I wasn't sure if I should link them because they don't regularly post on there, but you can find those channels through their main channels.

That's all for today! Like with yesterday's post, let me know if you watch any of these YouTubers or if you're just discovering them, and what your thoughts are. Also if there's any YouTubers you think I should check out, let me know in the comment section below.

Addicted to YouTube: Part 1


I've always liked YouTube and what it offers, but I didn't properly get into YouTube until about 2 years ago. By that I mean subscribing to YouTubers and checking my sub box on a daily basis. It's now become a part of my daily routine, so I thought I would share some of my favourite YouTubers and how I found them.

There's a lot of YouTubers that I'm subscribed to that I think I'm going to have to break this down into parts and make it a bit of a series on my blog. But make sure to check out all these amazing YouTubers if you haven't already, and subscribe to them if you like. These people make my day everyday. 

Zoe Sugg
YouTube channel(s): Zoella | MoreZoella

Zoe's channel is what started it all for me. It's through her videos that I found a lot of my other favourites (word of warning it's mainly the British YouTube crew). I was on tumblr, and saw one of those posts that give you a load of links for tips on different things, and Zoe's channel was linked in that post for make-up tips.

I immediately connected with Zoe because we have a very similar personality and have a lot in common. I've been watching Zoe's videos for a little over 2 years now, and it's been amazing to watch her channel(s) grow and all she's accomplished and continues to accomplish.




Joe Sugg
YouTube channel(s): ThatcherJoe | ThatcherJoeVlogs |
ThatcherJoeGames

Through Zoe's videos, I then discovered her younger brother, Joe and immediately loved him! How can you not!! LOOK AT HIM! Joe is my favourite YouTuber above everyone else. His videos instantly make me happy. Whenever I'm going through a tough time or if my anxiety is really bad, I put on Joe's videos and he never fails to make me smile. Whether that's his main channel videos, vlogs or gaming videos, all of them are amazing!

Joe is not only extremely good-looking (and he is!), but he has an amazing personality and that's what stands out the most in his videos. He has an amazing sense of humour that is similar to mine which is nice. He's super talented with his voice impressions, singing and ability to do a wide variety of different accents. I could honestly go on and on about how much I love Joe, and how much him and his videos have helped me through these past 2 years.


Alife Deyes
YouTube channel(s): PointlessBlog | PointlessBlogVlogs | PointlessBlogGames

Alfie is Zoe's boyfriend (like I said, a lot of my favourites are connected to Zoe). When I started watching YouTube in September 2013, Zalfie was just confirmed a month before, but as I was new to these YouTubers, I remember still not knowing for sure when I started watching until I found Zoe's blog post about them.

I love Alfie because you can tell how much he genuinely cares about his viewers. He works hard to make sure that his viewers are happy, and it shows in his videos.



Louise Pentland
YouTube channel(s): SprinkleOfGlitter | SprinkleOfChatter

Found Louise's channel through (surprise, surprise) Zoe's channel. Louise is Zoe's best friend (or chummy as they would say). I instantly loved Louise! She is such an infectious person, if that makes any sense. When you watch her videos, you just laugh when she laughs, you smile with her and you cry when she cries (which isn't often, but you know what I mean). She just has this way of making you feel like you're one of her best friends.

She is hilarious which is number 1 in my books. If you can make me laugh, you are a winner! She's also beautiful, confident and inspiring. I'm a massive fan of Louise's and I'm so proud of all she's accomplishing at the moment.

Caspar Lee
YouTube channel(s): Caspar | morecaspar

First time I ever saw Caspar was in one of Joe's videos back before they became roommates, and I loved him and subscribed to his channel right away. Now Joe and Caspar are best friends and roommates and it's the best thing ever!!

Caspar is the ultimate goofball, and you can't help but just love him or at least I can't help it. Caspar is another YouTuber who never fails to make me laugh. His videos are so funny, and he's another person who's sense of humour I love. I don't know how you couldn't love Caspar Lee!



SacconeJoly's; Jonathan, Anna, Emilia, and Eduardo.
YouTube channel(s): SacconeJolys | AnnaSaccone | JonathanJoly

I found the SacconeJoly's through Zoe's videos as always. She mentioned them in one of her favourites videos, and I've been subscribed ever since. They daily vlog their lives every day, and have been doing so for over 5 years now. I remember when I started watching, Eduardo had just been born and he's now a year and a half!

I honestly love this family! They are so genuine and sweet. Their daily vlogs make my day everyday. Jonathan and Anna are amazing parents and have amazing channels of their own. Their kids are the sweetest, and it's been amazing watching them grow up. The have six "doggy friends" that are all Maltese and are so cute! I could gush on and on! I love the SacconeJoly's!!

That's all for today! I think I'll do six YouTubers per post. Go check them all out, and subscribe if you like. Let me know in the comments below if you are a fan of any of these YouTubrs, or if you just discovered them, let me know your thoughts.
