Dodie Clark & Her New Book! (Youtuber books...)

 

Confession: I'm a bit of a Dodie fangirl. I enjoy her YouTube videos and her music. I'm kind of shocked I was approved to read this book, as I am a little "nobody" in the blogger/reviewer world, but it has happened, I'm reading it and liking it so far.

 

I kind of really like her. She's quirky and has a good singing voice. Her videos usually have meaning other than getting views for money, at least I think so. I don't watch every one of her videos. In fact, I do not watch every video of any person I follow on YouTube. I just feel like she is genuine. She talks about her mental health openly, isn't afraid to be herself, in fact a lot of her videos is sans makeup, even with acne/acne scars and I find that so refreshing. I think we should not be so focused on how we look. So we get pimples? So we gain weight? We're all human and these things happen! Dodie can be a role model to other people with similar experiences, though watch her with caution, as there have been viewers that mentioned watching people talk about anxiety, depression...etc can be triggering for them, because sometimes she is known to get in a dark place with her Instagram and Snap Chat stories.

 

In this video, Dodie wonders if there is a such thing as oversharing when it comes to depression...etc

Am I oversharing?

 

In this video she follows up and apologizes.

I'm not big on YouTuber books, but got really excited for Dodie's book. Maybe she will change my mind about these sort of books and I will give more a chance. Though I am not sure I follow too many people who have published.

 

There is Connie Glynn "Noodlerella's" fiction novel, which I am curious about. Undercover Princess by Connie Glynn. The name and plot sound quite cliche and I can swear I have read something exactly like it before, like on Wattpad, so that is bugging me! But I do want to give it a try, as I enjoy Connie's YouTube channels as well.

The only YouTube book I have tried to read is:

Gabbie is from "The Gabbie Show" and I've only watched a couple of her videos.

And this book wasn't for me, sadly.

Disclaimer: I received "Secrets For The Mad" by Dodie Clark from Netgally in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for the chance to read this! Review will come closer to publication date, which is in November.

The Hundred and One Dalmatians - Dodie Smith

I shouldn't think even millionaires could eat anything nicer than new bread and real butter and honey for tea.

 

Dodie Smith

 

Though she began her career as a playwright, Dodie Smith (born May 3, 1896) is best known for two books. Her memoir, I Capture the Castle, and a novel, The Hundred and One Dalmations, inspired by her nine (!) dalmations.

I Capture the Castle - Dodie Smith

I really, really like Dodie Smith's writing style. This isn't a book with a lot of action and adventure, but the narrative was great and it kept me interested. I thought the book could have been formatted better, though, to remind readers that it's a journal. All of the characters were well-written, in my opinion. I did not expect the small plot twist at the end and was content with the ending.

I wasn't sure how i felt about her situation with her love interest at first, but after thinking about it a bit, i decided i was okay with it.

(I'm not feeling very eloquent today.)
