Pretty Literate Opossum Okay, when a book's gotta lean on pop culture references this much? That's gonna be a no from me.

Aida R. that's pretty much how i feel about all the books written by booktubers :(

Eri Tbh I don’t have faith in booktubers putting out books. I’ll be avoiding this one it seems.

Em I haven’t read this book but I’ve heard such bad things about it. I hate how people with influence get an unfair advantage, and it wouldn’t bother me so much if the books were actually good but they never are

tbh that's exactly my problem - in theory im not against booktubers getting book deals, but it's so obvious from this book, that the only reason she got the deal is the amount of her subscribers. because the book is BAD, it looks like the first draft, it looks like the editor decided "fuck that they'll buy it anyway".
i wouldn't have problems with it, if it was at least a decent book that just isn't my cup of tea, but this book is just so half-assed

Ada the Twitter thread is pure gold and mirrors my sentiments about this book so well. can't wait for the full review!

Tiffany I'm curious for a link to the Twitter rant.

Sabrina Ye I admire whoever can actually finish reading this book 😂 I can't even make it to chapter 5, everything is so cringey it hurts my eyes 😂😂😂

☙ percy ❧ how the entire shite was this even published and how are some people actually liking it


message 10: by Kami (new)

Kami I actually cringed at some of the excerpts you posted on the thread, how would an editor let all that slide


message 11: by Zoe (new)

Zoe Trezise Thank you for providing a link to the twitter thread 😂😂

Jacob King A little harsh don’t you think? It’s one thing to have an opinion but you’re just bashing this. If you wrote something to have someone post horrible things about it you would probably block them or get upset with them too.

soleil @jacob A book is a piece of art. Once it is out in the world, people can review it the way they want. If she didnt want an honest review, she shouldnt have published
