Welcome back to my blog! This is my second post of today *aren't you lucky*. This post is a review on the Girl Online book series. I am trying to add more variety to both my blog and youtube channel, so I thought this would be a cool idea. Also, one of my resolutions for 2017 was to read more often and I have already finished two books since Christmas Eve. So, I don't really know how to go about writing a book review but I think I will write individual reviews and then an overall summary. Also, I am not giving anymore information away than what is in the blurb of the book so you don't have to worry about spoilers.
The story is in the perspective of a girl battling severe anxiety and panic attacks. Her name is Penny Porter and she runs a blog *YAY* called "Girl Online". This is where she shared all of her feeling and anonymously shares stories about her life. She goes on a trip to NY with her family and falls in love with Noah Flynn. Noah is a stunning guitarist who lives in America. She falls in love with him and shares all of her dates and stories on her blog. Everything is fine until Penny discovers his hidden secret that could ruin everything they ever had.
It is very difficult to pick a favourite from the series but I think this one might be it. There is a lot of romance and boy drama as well as friend drama and a bit of knowledge on anxiety and mental illness. In this book you learn a lot about her personalities and passion. Penny is a really loveable character and I instantly connected with her and her emotions. I also fell in love with Noah AKA "Brooklyn Boy" and her best friend Elliot AKA "Wiki". Zoe has done an amazing job at making super loveable characters (as well as a few that you cannot stand).
Girl Online : On tour
At the beginning of this book Penny goes on tour with her rock boyfriend Noah Flynn. however she soon notices the struggle of being on tour as Noah has no time for Penny, His band mates are not very nice and she is getting lots and lots of hate. The story is about whether Penny will be able to keep balance of their relationship and her own life.
I literally read this book in four days and I never put it down. I can really connect with Noah on this book as I am a bit of a music geek myself. It is a really heart breaking story as you can see both people struggling to make things work. Will it all pay off in the end?
Penny begins to move on from the tour and starts to focus her energy into her photography work. She goes to visit Megan's new drama school and meets a new boy called Callum. She is trying to help other people in order to distract herself but how will she cope when she cannot stop thinking about where Noah Flynn has gone?
I love this book because there are so many unexpected moments that just make you want to read on. It was a real page turner. There is a lot of friendship trouble and boy drama in this book. She also gives amazing advice on how to cope with anxiety and panic attacks.
Thanks a lot for reading my blog post today. I promise to keep on posting on here throughout the course of 2017. Bye xx
