Girl Online Going Solo!!!
Girl Online Going Solo - Zoe Sugg

I love these books. I would say they are my guilty pleasure but screw it, I don't feel guilty about it.

 

I'm so glad she wrote a third book, not because I care about if Noah and Penny were getting back together or not. I wanted to read more from Penny, I wanted to see how she would evolve and what would happen on her journey. I love Penny as a character so much, she is just so freaking relatable. And even though there is a huge age difference between me and her, I actually feel like I grew with her in each book. Just like her I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks and in the first two books, reading about her struggles and how she dealt with them, I couldn't imagine ever getting as far as she has gotten. Now, reading the third book and seeing how she is not over them (of course) but how she handles it, and looking at myself and seeing how far I have actually come this year, it feels amazing.

 

So yes, the characters aren't anything new, the story isn't anything new and earth-shattering. But it's real and at least for me, it's something important and helpful. So having that rant out of the way, lets talk about the actual book and the story in this one. It's the third book, so there's probably some spoilers, so beware (danger! danger!)

 

New characters!!!!

Posey. I love love love her. She's just such a special snowflake. And I love that she met Penny and that Penny helped her out. Now for one second did I think she would turn out to be the bad guy. Not when Megan is in the mix. Can I just say that I hate her with a burning passion. Screw the apology at the end, she sucks. I think in the second book she kinda grew on my, but no, screw that. I really liked Callum in the beginning but as soon as the first date happened, he was giving me a weird vibe and nope, didn't need that guy.

 

I still don't care for Penny and Noah. No disrespect to everyone who loves them, they just aren't for me. But he makes Penny happy and I'm all for that, so I will deal with that.

On the friendship front, tho. Penny and Elliot. Oh, they went through quite a bit in that book, especially due to Elliot's problems at home. I felt so bad for him and he really scared me towards the end. Glad that things worked out for him, kinda. But it will be better in the end. (Also, I'm so very happy that Elliot and Alex are still going strong. These two are just so damn cute).

 

I don't think that a 4th book is necessary. I would love one about Elliot, to be completely honest. If she decides to write another book in this series, I would still buy it, cause PENNY!!!!! But I would also love to read something completely different from her.

Username: Evie - Joe Sugg

Wow, this was just terrible...

I was really looking forward to this one, when I spotted it in my library I just knew I had to get this one. Then I started reading, and in the beginning it was pretty decent, but it quickly fell apart. Really quickly even.

Evie was just highly unlikeable, and I found her behaviour weird and awkward. I mean really? Hiding yourself in the freezer/refrigerator because your life is so bad? Yes, that is really healthy right there. I can imagine crawling in bed, or hiding somewhere, but a refrigerator? What the hell!
And yes, her life wasn't the easiest, or the most fun, but instead of taking a stand, or trying to find help, she just cropped it all up, finding refuge in a game her dad made for her.
Then we have the game world, and how she acts in that one. I do have to say I liked her more when she finally took a stand against what was happening in the game. She did try her best to save it, she did her best to do things. But sorry, I still didn't like her.

Then we have Mallory, or the bitch of the book. Dear Lord, what a terrible character that was. I can go on an on for hours why, but I think those that read the book will know. The things she did to Evie, the things she did to others because they might steal her precious spotlight, it was just disgusting.
I also hated how she treated the game, and how she poisoned things in there. That shows right there that this girl has even more issues than we might know at this moment.
I will put this one under spoilers, but I have to rant a bit.
(view spoiler)

The bullying parts were just bleh and I hated them, it was a struggle to read them. :|

The world her dad made was fun, but sorry, how stupid can you be not to up your security for it, and make sure only your daughter can get in. Make a special sentence only she will know. Or something different. This was just ridiculous. How did he not anticipate this. I mean, his daughter already was having big problems, her life wasn't easy, and you didn't think that something would happen? Wow. :|

The art was so-so. The characters changed so much throughout the book that I at times had a hard time differentiating between them. Really. Characters who lost their glasses suddenly looked like a totally different character.
I couldn't believe the dad was the same guy from the picture. Yes, some time passed, and he was ill, but sorry, it is that she said it was her dad in that picture, otherwise I wouldn't have believed it.

There were still a few other things that I found unbelievable or weird. Like with that glasses guy, or some of the game mechanics.

All in all, this was a huge disappointment. Unlikeable characters, questions all over, bullying, weird actions, and not that good art. :(
