It was better than the first part
This can described using one word, boring.

If you read the first book, User name Evie, and like me thought it wasn't that bad, don't go the extra mile and read the completely unnecessary sequel.

The first book ended on an interesting, but satisfying note. It wasn't by any means a great book, but I decided to see what regenerated had to offer.

As I said above, boring and completely unnecessary. I think it's supposed to be a story about love and loss and finding family or something, but the story

I was kindly sent a copy of this book from Hachette Australia in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Joe takes us back into e.scape in this fantastic sequel, taking us deeper into the world and the lives of the characters.

All Evie can think about is the guy she left behind in e.scape. She doesn't know his name, only that he no longer exists due to her dad regenerating the world of e.scape. What's worse it that the gateway to e.scape

It was just okay. Not a bad story but I think it has more potential.
Destiny (myhoneyreads)

It was an interesting turn of events. I liked the plot, didn’t care for the characters this time around, and I was quite angry with one of the characters throughout the entire book. The dialogue bothered me, not sure why. I enjoyed the story and the graphics were great. A solid read.

Username: Regenerated was a good continuation of the Username story, however I only just found it to be okay.

- I like the art style
- I like that Mallory is not annoying as frick anymore

- I wanted more of the hooded guy cause I ship him with Evie
- I'm starting to find Lionel annoying as frick, and I shouldn't, but I do.
- I found the story to be somewhat predictable at times.

Yeah, this is the most basic review ever. If I think of more things, I will add to this review - but for now I'll

Actual rating: 2.5 / 5 stars.

I like how coy Joe Sugg was being about this series. In the introduction to this he said how he'd always wanted this world to have more than one book. He didn't mention how long a series it would be, which was smart so if future works fall through, he'd get away with just the two and wouldn't have shot himself in the foot.
I think this series is just gonna be so so for me.
I liked the storyline of this but the execution still felt poor to me and I was annoyed by a lot

I love this graphic novel set. The world building is so great. I don't want to give to much information as this is the second book in the series.

Evie returned home in book one but she is at it again. She has been missing e.scap and she will stop at nothing to get herself back there. Only this time she is searching for someone.

In the process of getting to e.scape the app version she needed to get back on her computer was corrupted so when she had a friend to work on it, he mistakenly added the

I really enjoyed this book. We learned a lot about the old characters and the new ones were very refreshing.

Good work, Sugg

let me explain why I changed my rating for this graphic novel: Lionel boooooooored me so much, he is so annoying, he does not help the story to go forward (except when he managed to get e.scape to work again) and it seems that the story is going round and round, it is always about someone going to t

This book is amazing, i read it in one sitting, couldn't put it down. The book follows from username: Evie, this is the second book in the series and probably the last, sadly. It's a fantastic graphic novel and one of my favorite of all time, i'll continue to reread this for years to come.
i suggest everyone go a pick these two books up if you haven't already,

Great example on how author media popularity can persuade an editor to publish mediocre work and be financially worth it. Just feels like i got scammed into buying this by hordes of youtuber fans pushing the rating up. I was even foolish enough to buy both volumes straight away. Never again.

Genuinely like this book. It was a great sequel, though the ending a bit rushed and awkward. Not that much character development (unfortunately) but the amazing format really makes the story come to life in a torally different and interesting way from normal books. Looking forward to the next one!

This book was somewhat of a surprise as I bought it without realizing it was a graphic novel - I thought it'd be just a printed book. My only other experiences in the graphic novel genre are with the first Alex Rider adventure (Stormbreaker?) and a very weird one called "Bone."
The illustrations were somewhat like Bone, not exactly very professional but still quite suited to the story. Apparently, there are three books in this series but I had not known this prior to purchase as I bought it from

I wanted to read this book because I have followed Joe Sugg since the earlier days of YouTube. I read his first book back in 2017 and again this year. So I decided it was time to carry on with the series.

The main character is a young girl in high school called Evie. She is a bit of an outcast at school, and she is feeling very lonely. Her cousin, Mallory is the Queen Bee at the school. Evie dreams of a place of safety. All she wants to do is escape from reality. Evie’s father has died and create

When I read USERNAME: EVIE I was amazed by the storyline and eagerly wanted to pick up book two and see if I would love it just as much as I did its predecessor. It was a good read, but it did not live up to the first books great review in my opinion. I loved USERNAME: EVIE so much that I didn’t have that many bad comments to say in my review. In USERNAME: REGENERATED I unfortunately do.

First of all, I thought USERNAME: EVIE finished on a good note. I thought it ended well and I was nonchalant

I appreciated the fact that credit was given to everyone who worked on this book. Sure, Joe's name is one the front but inside they mention everyone who worked on the book which was nice. Not all youtubers do that.

It was a fun graphic novel to read and I enjoyed it just as much as the first one, maybe even a little more. I personally don't watch Joe on YouTube, so I felt like my reading experience was different from someone who does. I was able to detach the work from the creator and I treated i

2.5 Stars!

"It's all about making the effort, and creating a good time rather than thinking you're missing out on a better one."

I read the predecessor to this a few years back and quite enjoyed it, and stumbled upon this in the library and so I thought I would give it a shot. Sugg and the creative team behind this clearly know their market well and have developed a strong and enticing enough story line, backed with some punchy, vibrant colouring that will surely appeal to the many teenagers (and

The sequel to "Username: Evie" held more tension and conflict than the first book, but a lot of what I struggled with remained the same. The dialogue was very simple and corny, the text boxes throughout literally explained what was going on or the lesson you were supposed to learn, and the characters were very one dimensional. I liked that Mallory decided to drastically change herself to be kinder, however, she stays with her uncaring, narcissistic boyfriend and the new kindness involves calling ...more

Book three of BTAT read!!
I read this in one sitting, I think about a couple hours.
It was nice to read, but I couldn't say I loved it. Just a nice easy read.
It was interesting knowing the mother and what happened to her, River's carachter is particularly interesting to me, I don't know why.
I'll probably read the next book(I think there is going to be a third) sometime but it's not a series I'm super hyped about.
What I'm trying to say is that I like it, but not sooo much. I hope you guys get it 🙃

Overall, I probably enjoyed this book slightly more than the first in the series. However, much like the first one, I felt the ending in particular was very confusing and I wasn’t a fan of the art style. Also, there were various parts of the story that didn’t seem to make sense, even with my limited understanding of computers. I felt that the characters and their relationships could have been further developed, they seemed rather flat with little life to them. But despite this, I still enjoyed m ...more

We're back to e.scape where Evie is able to visit again. This time, though, she finds out that the place is a whole lot more than she thought since it includes an entire underworld with its own, not always friendly, individuals include one that Evie knows personally.

There's also a couple of people from e.scape who end up in our world. That's just a short version of what is a fully-developed story. The story itself is good and interesting with fascinating characters.

Loved Username: Regenerated as much as I loved the first graphic novel; Username: Evie. This one full of action, adventure and unlike the first, sadness. Defiantly felt my heart braking especially towards the end of the book when Oak was killed and Evie's mother left her, again. However, I can't wait to dive into the third and supposedly final Username: Evie book; Username: Uprising. ...more

Not as engaging as the first one but the plot is interesting and I still want to keep reading. It feels like he wanted to do a lot of world building and exposition in this story and the jumping back and forth on the point of views was a little annoying at times. However, it was still a good book and I'm excited for number 3. ...more
