one of my first posts here has been a review of Girl Online by Zoe Sugg and so far I have read Part 2 as well, Girl Online on Tour! And I’m sure going to read the last part, part 3 Girl Online: Going Solo. Sounds promising, if you ask me.
It’s been months since Penny Porter has been with her famour rockstar boyfried Noah Flynn who she has met on her vacation christmas trip in glorious New York City. Of course the media has found out about these two, as well as Penny’s blog “Girl Online”, so she had to shut it down and decided to continue writing it offline and publishing the posts only to a few close friends.
Now, Noah is going to an European Tour with a world famous boyband group and Penny should tag along the summer. Sounds fun for Penny, although she has her doubts about being the tour girl and “girlfriend of Noah Flynn”. Is this tour changing things between Noah and Penny? Suddenly it sounds a bit scary, but Penny wants to try it anyway.
Turns out, the tour doesn’t only bring the good things out of people, but also the bad ones. Penny starts to doubt herself and the people she think she could trust. Has it been a mistake to accompany Noah on his tour?
SO. You know, if you watch Zoe Sugg’s youtube videos you simply have to know which audience she is attracting and if you know that, you know how this book is written. Right, for teens who are fangirls and have unrealistic boyfriend crushes. If you mix in the drama, you got my perfect book *whispers* oh Gossip Girl. I’m a sucker for major drama as long as the drama is well written and not super unrealistic. Which might not be Gossip Girl or any kind of these books, but you get my point.
Such as a conflict between Noah and Penny, which I’m not going to get into because well, that would be a spoiler. It outraged me because it was suddenly there and no one expected it to be there because that drama was so out of character. Not to forget too fast resolved conflicts. When I was hoping for a MAJOR blow out, it vaporized into nothing. It was a simply dull moment and that was boring.
Of course there have been nice scenes as well and super atmospheric ones too because this book is about European Tour and ALL the major cities. Well, Paris and Rome. Who needs other cities? CERTAINLY NOT ME! *tries to promote Vienna but so fas it hasn’t really worked out*.
The book was nicely written, easy english and not too many ups and downs. A okay-ish summer read for the beach, that’s for sure. I wish I had read it at the beach but instead an overcrowed, far too hot train had to be there. Next time, maybe. The reason I’m going to read the next book, Going Solo, is because maybe Penny Porter is finally the less scared, more independent girl we all wanted to have since book 1! I dare you Zoe to mess up my hopes.
3 out of 5 stars for Girl Online on Tour by Zoe Sugg.
(i) The Amazon Links are affiliated Links. I guessed this was the easiest way to establish a store where you can go and buy a book if you are interested in it plus it makes me literally just some cents. Yes I got greedy and I’m gonna bath in my ten 5 cent pieces. You’re welcome.
