Please Note: I received an ARC copy of this book as part of the Sunday Street Team Blog Tour, in exchange for an honest review. This did not influence the opinions of my review on any way.

When I saw the premise for this book, I was immediately excited. Angsty teens, blogging, trolls, and a mystery! This was such a charming book. I did have a few minor quibbles. But overall, once I started this book, I couldn't put it down.

Since Internet Famous is the second book I have read by Danika Stone, I had an idea of what to expect. I definitely wasn’t disappointed in this story of a blogger who is struggling with an internet troll. The main character is warmhearted and relatable, and there are actually serious topics discussed in the story. This is a cute and quick read that is perfect for the summer.

Minor spoilers ahead!

Trigger warning: Harassment, and cyber bullying.

I received this E-ARC via Netgalley and the author in exchange for an honest review. I have read the author's previous works'. She kindly gave me an arc. I am happy to say that I enjoyed it!

This book is written in first person limited following Madi. There are tweets, pictures, blog posts, text messages, and gifs/memes.

Once again, I’m left with very mixed feelings on this book that I have read. On one hand, I enjoyed it. I loved the idea of this being about a blogger, the online world, and a nice romance with it too. It did mention family issues, and mental health illnesses as well. And while I did enjoy all the themes and the way I flew through this book, I still felt like it was missing some depth that I was searching for.

I have to say, I wanted to read this book because I was so happy about finally having a

This was pretty cute and fluffy, there were a lot of mountains made out of molehills and feeding trolls, but ultimately it was a quick and enjoyable read that's perfect for summer and lovers of fandoms.

I do think that if Madi had been more chill there wouldn't have been as much of a story, but I loved Madi's blog posts and live coverage of rewatches. This is very much a current book and anyone familiar with social media and blogging will recognise pretty

That was adorable! And that ending was everything.

I am total a fan of Stone's last book, All the Feels. It was such a fun story with a cute romance, and Stone has done it again with Internet Famous.

There were so many things to love about this charming story.

I was a Madi fan. How do you not love a girl, who was driven out of an online community by a ruthless troll, and then turned her expulsion into clickty-click cash? I know I couldn't help but admire how Madi made lemons out of

Internet Famous is a young adult standalone by author Danika Stone. I loved Danika's previous novel, All the Feels so much, so when I saw that her latest novel was about a blogger, I knew this was another fandom-centric novel that I was going to really enjoy. And I really did enjoy Internet Famous. Not quite as much as I loved All the Feels, but I thought Internet Famous was a great read. It was fun in a different wa

Internet fame has a price. When Madi's "real life" hits a rough patch, she feels her whole world crumbling.

Lesson learned. Never expect too much on what you want it to happen in a story. Ever.

The fact that I almost Dnfed this because the first half bored me to death. This was originally intended to be rated 2 1/2 stars but then I decided to make it a 3-star rating because literally the second half has been improved and it wasn't that bad in my opinion.

Trollers gonna troll, a book you are gonna love! Internet famous is such a cute story about first love, teenage dreams and cyberbullying. I stayed up all night reading. I just could not put it down! The plot of the story is very relatable. The author portrayed the life of a blogger at its best, with its ups and downs. Maddie, a famous blogger, becomes a victim of cyberbullying when a Troll threatens to destroy not only her blog but her real life as well. Cyber bul
My second Danika Stone book, and I loved it just as much as I did her first book!

Meet MadLibs, or Madi. She has a blog were she reviews movies, comics, books, anything. She live-blogs/tweets while watching. She has a ton of followers and she even has a group of fans who support her in a whole lot of things. I wish I could see Madi's blog in real life, it sounds like the blog I would love to follow and read. Yes, I confess, I would be a Madlibber.
Her dedication to the blog was amazing. And she h

Let me start off by saying that the synopsis of this book is absolutely precious. When I read it, I knew I had to have it. As someone who’s been on the internet most (almost all) of my life, I’ve had my own fair share of online romances, and I’ve undergone my fair share of trolling, as well. I love the idea of such a modern love story: girl meets boy online, girl falls for boy online, etc. This book handles that concept delightfully. There are text message exchanges, tweets, tumblr reblogs, and ...more

I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. This story about a teen blogger struggling to deal with an online troll is one that will likely be relatable to many, particularly those who use social media on a daily basis. There are texts, blog posts, tweets, and pictures interspersed with the text. I really liked the alternative format but it may not appeal to all readers. Internet Famous also dealt with some serious topics that

Internet famous is the story of Madi, a girl that has a popular blog called MadLibs, that is finding her first love, dealing with internet trolls, trying to figure out what she wants to do with her future, and dealing the complications that come with the care of her sister. MadLibs is her blog where she shares her opinions on rewatches of different films. Madi has a very large fan base but likes to keep to herself. She takes classes online, and helps take care of her younger sister, Sa
Actual rating: 2.5*. This wasn’t an overly stimulating or exciting read but it covered some important topics and had an adorable dose of fluffiness in it! Definitely a good read that would be brilliant for educating younger people about the internet (and life itself)! A good, light, quick read but it unfortunately missed the mark for me plot wise.

Entertaining, but wayyyy too much foul language. And I wish Laurent had been the troll because he was The Unbelievably Perfect YA Boyfriend and because he was so 'perfect', he came off as fake and annoying.

This one tried so hard to be witty and snarky with hashtags and the blog posts but it only turn out to be very annoying.

Laurent lack personality and always saying the right words , the kind words. Its boring. Who wants to read pages and pages of dry conversation with neither depth nor humour??

I am so happy that I finally read INTERNET FAMOUS. This book features a girl that is very active on social media (blogging, tumblr, and twitter).

Madi is so relatable to teenagers now because she has social media and uses it and actually has a fanbase that came from her blog. I found it so interesting how she would post about re-watches of popular movies she does and has a whole rating scale that works and makes sense! Her whole experience with blogging was fun to read about and her ever growing

This was a fun, light book to read despite the issues I had with it.

First let's start with the things I liked:
- Online friendships
- Hot French guy *wiggles eyebrows*
- Pop culture
- Madi's blog was cool af

That's basically about it.

Now off to the things that I had a couple of issues with:
- Madi acted like a dick towards her sister unnecessarily sometimes, I mean yeah dealing with someone who has any sort of mental illness or special needs is exhausting when everyone expects you to handle
In Internet Famous, blogger Madi's life does a complete 180. At first, she has it all: a lovely family, perfect school life, and really big online following on her MadLibs blog. However, it soon changes when her mam walks out, and an online troll starts to threaten her. She has always kept her real and online lives separate, and this hacker is threatening to bring them together, which could have huge repercussions, not least that fact it could hinder her chances of graduating high school.

I thought this was a very cute story about what can happen when the internet and our real lives start to collide in unexpected ways. The romance was very cute, and I love how Danika Stone always manages to create the nerdiest love stories that I just can't get enough of.

Madi was an interesting character. I loved how she had created this unique online presence and turned it into a full-on franchise. She's definitely a good role-model for young girls, which I think is so so important in
Cute at times. But I had some problems with the writing/dialogue. Plus the MC came off as selfish more times than not. There was a lot of me me me when it came to the romantic relationship.
I did really like her relationship with her sister, who's on the autism spectrum. I felt like it was a good representation.

"Reasons why people hate tumblr and fandom, summarized into one (shockingly dull) book."

Madi reads as one of those Tumblr kids who's deluded themselves into thinking that blogging is OH SO IMPORTANT MAN. And for the love of GOD, you realize the whole "everyone on the internet is a predator" thing comes from kids ACTUALLY MEETING PREDATORS IN REAL LIFE AFTER MAKING CONTACT ON THE INTERNET, RIGHT?

These two meet through the comments section of Madis blog, MadLibs, and start to build a connection that has the potential to be something more. Meanwhile, Madis also facing adversity in the form of troll who is not in the mood to be ignored. Anyways, you know when you hype up a book in your mind and onc ...more
