Internet Famous Reviews
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 ...more
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
Fandom goodness! Adorable LI! Cutest text exchanges! Even a little mystery?!? Adored this great read!! Go pick it up right now!
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 ...more
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.
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 ...more
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 ...more
*Rubs forehead* Succinctly?
"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
