Top Five Favorite Youtuber Books (because some of them are actually good)

Greetings Earthlings! Now I don’t really know why I’m making this as I feel like everyone should understand my feelings on youtubers books but I’m making it because I do like some books by Youtubers, I just never review them. The only one that I’ve reviewed and liked was Binge by Tyler Oakley. Surprisingly though some of these books are great and well written! I thought it would be nice to talk about the ones I like. ALSO BEFORE I GET STARTED I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY THAT I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST THESE YOUTUBERS OR THEM WRITING BOOKS. It’s the books I have problems with, not the people who wrote it or the fact that they wrote a book. Okay okay. Let’s began!

But first some dishonorable mentions.

*this should literally come as no surprise and they both have sequels that i meant read some day when i feel like spending money on nothing. read my reviews for both here and hereI shouldn’t be too mean to Children of Eden, I mean it started out fine and I was enjoying and it’s different from most dystopians but like I said before it wanted to do too many and it could have done all those things but this book is too short for all that. The writing is also not the best thing. Now Girl Online: On Tour is just terrible. It’s the worst thing ever. It makes Children of Eden look like a classic. It’s cheesy, it’s badly written, all the character go through storylines that underdeveloped them instead of making them grow as characters, and I didn’t enjoy it.

And some honorable mentions:

connor franta

I would put this book on my list because I remember readings and liking it but it’s been so long and I don’t really remember this book. According to my review from two years ago, I loved this book. Here’s that review: I don’t know why I thought this was being to be bad! Maybe it was because I didn’t really like Zoe and Grace’s books. This book was beautiful written and it had gorgeous pictures to go with the beautiful writing. Probably the best book I’ve read by a youtuber yet. I’m wondering if I should re read this but I haven’t watched a Connor Franta video in soooo long and I don’t really like him anymore but that’s because I haven’t watched him in like fifty years. Also I hate that this is called memoir because if I remember correctly he talks about more then one part of his life making it more autobiography then memoir.

Zenith

*i got this book as an arc at ALA This would be on my list because I did enjoy this book but I was going through a book slump when I read it and I feel like I didn’t appreciate to the fullest level. I want to appreciate this book because it is good book and I love Sasha Alsberg, she is so sweet and was the first booktuber that I ever watched. I will reread this book and appreciate more to the level that it should be appreciated at, and then I will do a full review on it. I’m planing on doing that closer to the release date but I’m not of my slump and I’m like I NEED TO RE READ NOW!!! I’m getting ready to move in a couple months and I had to pack up some of my books which was really hard for me and I left Zenith out just in case I decided to re read early. Besides all that though, I enjoyed this book. I loved the characters, I loved the writing, and it was so good. This book is available for preorder and I know that because it’s not coming out until January of 2018. Go Preorder now!!!

Okay Rant over. Let’s began for reals!!!!


#5 Girl Online by Zoe Sugg

+C: A work in progress. Okay writing, not so great characters and story line but pulled through and was readable.

This book mainly has a special place in my heart as it was the first thing I ever reviewed on this blog and you can read that review here. But just because it’s one of the first books I reviewed does not mean I like it. This book is cheesy but like cheesy in a good way sort. It’s like a bad tv-movie romantic comedy in book form which makes it both good and bad. The different from why the second book is worse is because this has new and different elements and the characters were likable. But with book two nothing really new was added and the characters were underdeveloped and I knew what would happen in that book before I even read it. One of things I don’t think about this book, and it still carries on in the second book, is that there is nothing real in this book. Nothing to make the characters relatable or for you to feel something from them. Penny has anxiety but it’s only mentioned like we don’t get a scene if I remember were she deals with it which I would have liked as a person with anxiety. There is also a lot surrounding this book as it was ghostwritten by someone else which is an interesting thing but we aren’t going to talk about that.


#4 I Hate Everyone but You by Gaby Dunn and Alison Raskin

-A: Good story with characters that got better and a slow plot line

This book is not out yet, well it’s not out as I’m writing this, but it is available for preorder. I got this book as an arc, well I didn’t really get it I went to ALA and when I was waiting in line for Lemony Snicket and I found this in a book in a box and the cover of the arc is so funny that I had to get it. SO if you left your arc in a box at ALA then I took it and I’m sorry…… not really I’m so glad I took this book from the book. I’m clearly the better book owner here so it as destiny that we found each other okay. DEAL! This book is pretty great and it is so funny. After I read this book, I was like I have to go and watch their videos and hopefully they are as funny as this and their videos are so funny and amazing and I love them. This book also feels real which was something that I liked and some writers need to learn from when writing books *COUGH! i need to stop throwing shade at Zoe’s books…… haha never! Go read this book guys. Well go preorder this book if it’s not out yet. I have no clue when this is coming out.


#3 Dan and Phil Go Outside by Dan Howell and Phil Lester

-A: Good story with characters that got better and a slow plot line

I love Dan and Phil. They are my favorite youtubers and I ship them and I’m like marathoning all of their gaming videos but that’s not important right now. When they announced the first book, I was liked YES THIS IS THE ONLY THING I CARE ABOUT! When they announced they were going on tour in america I was so excited but I didn’t get to go as one i don’t think they went anywhere near me and two I was in school during that time so I wouldn’t be able to go. Then they came out with those movies about the tour and I was excited but then disappointed again as it was only available on Youtube Red which is 12.99 PER MONTH!! that’s dumb. I mean I did watch it I bootlegged it on the internet *don’t judge me but still I was sad. So when a book came out that had their journey on tour, I was like yes! That’s all this book was, just them talking about the tour with all their pictures from tour which was still fun and I very much enjoyed. The only problem is that this book was hard to read on kindle.


#2 Binge by Tyler Oakley

binge

+ A: Perfect story with get characters and fantastic plot line.

*just a weird thing that I just learn you can change the sizes of pictures in wordpress…. HOW AM I JUST FIGURING THIS OUT NOW? I don’t know why 2015 Grace thought A Work in Progress was her favorite book by a youtuber book because that same year this book and The Amazing Book is Not on Fire come out that year and I was so excited that I preordered them and I don’t preorder a lot of books. Maybe I read that and then read this book. I loved this book it was so amazing. It made my favorites list for 2015 if you remember or seen that post. I love Tyler Oakley so when he announced that he was writing a book, it was the first time I ever cared about a youtuber writing a book. I have a whole review talking about  how much I loved this book which you can read here. It just so great. Honestly concerned this tied with the number one book but I wanted an odd number for this list. This book is funny, it’s heartwarming, it makes you laugh and it will make you cry. Go read this book.


#1 The Amazing Book is Not on Fire by Dan Howell and Phil Lester

TABINOF

+ A: Perfect story with get characters and fantastic plot line.

The book that I own to copies of which breaks my number one of books that I will only own one copy of a book. I first got this book on kindle and I preordered it but because I live in the US I didn’t get the book until five after the book came out in the UK and I was so mad because I was so looking forward for this book and the date that was supposed to be world wide wasn’t world wide. I still got it and I was happy that I got it and my anger disappeared but like with DAPGO it’s a very hard book it read on kindle. BUT THEN for Christmas, my friend was getting rid of her copy and I was like no give to me as a present   because I want a hard copy and she did and it’s so beautiful and I love it so much. I’ve read it like four times because i love it so much. It’s like their channels in book form and they are my favorite youtubers and I like rewatch their videos so many times. I’ve always wanted to review this book but it would be such a hard book to review. Maybe one day, I’ll review it but I don’t know what right now.


Well that’s it for this post. It wasn’t even a top 10 and it’s the same word count as a top 10. There are more youtuber books out there but either they aren’t out or I don’ remember reading them. I thought about putting some John Green books on here but I didn’t. Did you agree with what I had to said? If not then tell me. What are some of your favorite books by youtubers? Tell if you think I should read. I hope you enjoyed this post and make sure to look out for more coming your way soon. You should follow my book club here and other social media links.
