If you are a blogger or a youtuber, then you can relate to some of the events in Internet Famous very well. Madison has a blog and is a huge online sensation until an anonymous troll threatens to take down her blog and r ...more
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.
What I Liked:
I liked that Madi wasn't perfect. She felt mo ...more
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.
Madi is an internet sensation. She takes her blog very seriously and loves it! During the book an ...more

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 ...more
I have to say, I wanted to read this book because I was so happy about finally having a ...more
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.
Madi and Laurent
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 ...more
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 ...more
"I---I thought so."
OH MY GOODNESS!!!! THAT WAS SO ADORABLE!!! I CAN'T EVEN! WOW! CaLm DoWn NoW! Ok, this was adorable and sweet and Laurent was amazing. I LOVE FRENCH. I kind of want some guy to speak to me in French. That would be amazing. And sweet. And romantic. Oh, come on. Who am I kidding? I love anything French. Ok, so Madi and Laurent were perfectly adorable and perfect together. I nearly died during their arguments. Arguments are horrid. ...more
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.
I thought this would be an exciting mys...more
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 ...more
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 ...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 ...more
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 ...more
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??
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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?
And yet Madi just goes ahead and meets this guy because, as a teenager, s ...more
He was a gorgeously-realistic Anime character come to sudden, distracting life... and that face. OMG that face! He caught her eyes onscreen and she stopped breathing.”
