Hello, Nerds. I’m sorry I’ve been very non-existent the past three weeks, I was on a blogging hiatus. That doesn’t mean I didn’t read though! So here comes a load of reviews for everything I’ve read because I’m trying to get better at reviewing every book I read. Hold on.
Thanks to Penguin for sending this to me, it’s always nice to receive new books and I always thank people who’ve had a part in getting books to me.
Hi everyone and welcome to my book! It’s really close to my heart because it’s inspired by my journey to becoming confident and feeling happy about who I am. I wanted to write the book to share the things I’ve learnt with you – to reveal my top tips on fashion, beauty, love, friendship and YouTube… and loads more! Plus there is room for you to list your own hopes and dreams alongside mine – so get creative and get involved! I’d love it if this book became a keepsake you can treasure for years to come and learn to love yourself along the way – like I have. I hope you enjoy it!
Love, Tanya is an interesting part fashion (among other things.) and lifestyle manual with some personal diary type entries from the go to beauty and life Youtuber, Tanya Burr.
It has beautiful picture tutorials, delicious looking recipes (which I will try, especially the Avocado brownies!) and helpful advice on somewhat delicate topics such as love, friendships and anxiety/ panic attacks. However she handles these topics gracefully and never forces her ideals on you, only suggests ways to help which is great in a lifestyle book. Along with stunning photo shoots, cute typography and write your own tidbits.
Youtubers and book deals?
These books pose questions to readers, questions that are making them erupt into full blown madness. They want to know why Youtubers are getting book deals and other amazing writers aren’t. This only erupted after it was found out that Zoella (Zoe Sugg) the Youtube sensation received a book deal but the book was ghostwritten by Siobhan Curham, and that it rose to the quickest selling book since Harry Potter. So what’s my view?
I personally am against it. I don’t see the relevance for unnecessary books from Youtubers, I loved Love, Tanya but Zoella’s book didn’t need to be produced. It scares me that we produce things that won’t make a difference while other books can.
Anyway (sorry for my mini-rant) it’s a lovely hardback with a gorgeous cover an glossy pages, Love, Tanya is a dainty addition to my bookshelf.
Thanks for reading!
