    I will be posting my progress to my Instagram with the hashtag #popsugarreadingchallenge and here’s the link to POPSUGARs page if you want to check that out!

Girl Online: Going Solo by Zoe Sugg Review

I have finally got around to catching up on some well-needed reading! So I thought I definitely needed to read Youtuber, Zoe Sugg’s Girl Online: Going Solo!

Girl Online: Going Solo is the third book of the series.ย The Girl Online Series starts with Penny, she meets a lovely American guy, falls in love with him and it turns out that he’s actually famous..
From there throughout the series, there is a lot of drama with gossip, press, friends, lifestyle changes..
Penny has to learn the hard way on how to deal with things, especially her anxiety too.

I feel like this book can really help people with issues such as Mental Health as it really expresses how someone else feels from their perspective when struggling with anxiety. Although they aren’t all the same, I feel like it does show an insight into how to treat people, how to assist if possible and maybe even inspire people to look into Mental Health to research in general!

I have really enjoyed all of the books so far, but I feel like this one was probably my favourite! I won’t say too much as it’ll spoil the content but if you’re looking for an easy but interesting read then look no further!

In this book, there’s more drama, loyalty and trust issues and even more love to come!

Have you read any of the Girl Online series? Which one is your favourite so far?
Let me know!

Check out my review of Girl Online: On Tour!

Bridget Jones's Baby by Helen Fielding Review

Well, what can I say? I was so delighted when I heard that there was going to be yet another Bridget Jones book!

As much as I was excited and enjoyed reading it.. it confused me a little.
Firstly, Daniel Cleaver was dead in the recent Bridget Jones’s Baby film, but in this book he is the possible father, along with Mark Darcy.. when in the film, they had an american millionaire. Why?

The book is about 75% of the recent film, but some scenarios are slightly different or have a different location! For example, when Bridget first tells Mark Darcy about the baby, it is sort of just blurted out early on..

Don’t get me wrong, I adored reading this but I am just confused to why certain bits are in the books, then the film is different? Then people are dead, then alive? Then don’t exist?

I’m still a little confused ๐Ÿ™‚

I would definitely say to give it a read if you enjoyed the recent film, and feel free to let me know what you thought about the book! I would love to hear your opinions on this!
