YouTubers I've been loving (and where I've been)

Monday, 9 July 2018

This is strange. It feels like it's been far too long since I did this, I haven't posted on this blog properly since the end of May and it's the longest hiatus I've had since I started my blog last year. Honestly, the reason I disappeared is because I've been trying something new and getting a balance right just wasn't working for me because all of my energy was going into this new adventure. 

In case you didn't know, I started my own Youtube/Booktube channel also at the end of May (coincidence? Absolutely) and it's been so much fun but I don't want to forget my blog because without my blog, I never would have started my channel. So, if you'd like to see what I've been up to on my hiatus head to my channel where I've been posting weekly. 

Now that we've gotten that out of the way, here are some YouTubers I have been loving lately!

All Of This Is True - Blog Tour

Saturday, 9 June 2018

Miri Tan loved the book Undertow like it was a living being. So when she and her friends went to a book signing to meet the author, Fatima Ro, they concocted a plan to get close to her, even if her friends won’t admit it now. As for Jonah, well—Miri knows none of that was Fatima’s fault.

Soleil Johnston wanted to be a writer herself one day. When she and her friends started hanging out with her favorite author, Fatima Ro, she couldn’t believe their luck—especially when Jonah Nicholls started hanging out with them, too. Now, looking back, Soleil can’t believe she let Fatima manipulate her and Jonah like that. She can’t believe that she got used for a book.

Penny Panzarella was more than the materialistic party girl everyone at the Graham School thought she was. She desperately wanted Fatima Ro to see that, and she saw her chance when Fatima asked the girls to be transparent with her. If only she’d known what would happen when Fatima learned Jonah’s secret. If only she’d known that the line between fiction and truth was more complicated than any of them imagined. . .
