Books: Most Anticipated Releases 2016

Standard

Today I thought I would write a quick blog post on my most anticipated book releases for the upcoming months. I am a massive book lover and there are few books I cannot wait to have my hands on.

  1. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling and Jack Thorne.

This is a script book of the newest addition to the Harry Potter series/franchise, a new play that will open at the Palace Theatre London in July 2016. As a Harry Potter fan, it would be a sin not to have this book on my list.

This book is to be released on the 31st of July.jhgfg

  1. The Dark Artifices Book 1 – Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare.

This is the first book in a spin-off trilogy to The Mortal Instruments series. I am a huge fan of The Mortal Instruments books. I have read the six books of the main series, and I was just bought The Infernal Devices trilogy and The Shadowhunter’s Codex for my birthday. I am hoping to read The Bane Chronicles next. Needless to say I can’t wait for even more Mortal Instruments content!

This book is to be released on the 8th of March.

  1. On The Other Side by Carrie Hope Fletcher.

This is probably the most anticipated book on my most anticipated books list. The concept of this book sounds incredible. The Waterstones summary is as follows: Evie Snow is eighty-two when she quietly passes away in her sleep, surrounded by her children and grandchildren. It’s the way most people wish to leave the world but when Evie reaches the door of her own private heaven, she finds that she’s become her twenty-seven-year-old self and the door won’t open.

Evie’s soul must be light enough to pass through so she needs to get rid of whatever is making her soul heavy. For Evie, this means unburdening herself of the three secrets that have weighed her down for over fifty years, so she must find a way to reveal them before it’s too late. As Evie begins the journey of a lifetime, she learns more about life and love than she ever thought possible, and somehow, some way, she may also find her way back to her long lost love.’kjh

I cannot wait to read Carrie’s first fiction book, due out on the 14th July, especially after reading her debut book All I know Now which I thoroughly enjoyed.

  1. The Luxe Life by Fleur DeForce.

I really enjoyed Fleur’s The Glam Guide, which came out last year, and since this book is a follow up to that I cannot wait to read it.

This book is to be released on the 28th July.

  1. Tanya Bakes by Tanya Burr.

Tanya Burr who realised Love, Tanya last year, is releasing a complete baking book due to high demand. Tanya’s channel, known mostly for beauty and make-up, has seen the odd baking video and they are always very popular. I love Tanya’s baking and I can’t wait to buy this baking book and make all the treats inside!

This book is to be released on the 30th June.

Beauty: Zoella’s Perfume

Standard

dsjfhjd
I am recommending Zoella’s Blissful Mistful Fragranced Body Mist.

I have very much adopted the YouTube culture of this decade, with many YouTubers bringing out books and products. Some of these include beauty products from Zoella, Tanya Burr, Fleur de Force and Ruth Crilly and stationary from Jim Chapman under the name ‘James and Friends’. I’ve not yet bought myself any of these products although I do have a few YouTuber books. Anyway, my friend bought me Zoella’s perfume for my birthday earlier this year and I have genuinely loved it.

It smells good! The perfume smells sweet and girly but don’t be mistaken, it’s not a children’s perfume,Zoella_Blissful_Mistful_45ml_1411576372_main it’s suited for young adults, although that doesn’t stop anyone who wants to wear it from wearing it of course.

It lasts forever! My birthday was in February and I kid you not, that I’ve been wearing this perfume so often, especially in the latter part of the year: I’ve been wearing it every day for a while now and there is still a third of perfume left! The size of the perfume is 45ml – well worth the money.

It’s cheap! You can find Zoella’s products at Superdrug and it tends to sell at £8 a bottle and right now (see date of post) at my local Superdrug, all of the Zoella products are on sale 3 for 2!

YouTube: Top 5 Vloggers

Standard

I don’t know whether you have gathered this but I really enjoy YouTube videos and especially those by vloggers. On this topic I wanted to share my TOP 5 Daily Vloggers.

  1. Fleur DeForce (Second Channel: FleurDeVlog)

Fleur daily vlogs every other month and I really enjoy her videos. I love seeing her family, her husband and her doggies as well as her trips abroad and behind-the-scenes youtube stuff.

  1. Jim Chapman (Second Channel: EveryDayJim)

Jim posts daily vlogs every week day on his vlog channel. I love seeing his life with Tanya, their new house and Jim’s adventures in London whether that’s for a fashion event, going to a film premiere, returning a pair of shoes for Tanya or even going to the gym.

  1. Michael Aranda (Second Channel: WhatImDoingRightNow)

Daily vlogs with lots of stats. Michael particularly enjoys his statistics and starts every vlog with a caption in the corner about the weather in Missoula, Montana and stats about his eating out habits and his weight. In his vlogs we see drone footage, his car travels, food explorations and non-too regular gym trips. At the moment, his videos see him juggling work, school (college) and his relationships.

  1. Jonah Penna

Posting a weekly vlog, Sarah, new mother of one, documents her daily life juggling work, being a mother and being a wife. The channel is named after her son and if you recognise the name Penna, you may well know another YouTube personality MysteryGuitarMan, who just so happens to be Sarah’s husband.

  1. JLynn Johnston (Second Channel: JLynnCognito)

Although he only daily vlogs once a year during VEDA, his content during that time is really fun to watch. JLynn posts a one-take vlog every day updating people on the events of that day or talking about a certain topic.

Book: Love, Tanya

Standard

516ogI2SeAL._SX258_BO1,204,203,200_YouTube and the YouTube culture has increased dramatically in the last two years with many popular YouTubers being accepted into mainstream entertainment. With this has come the opportunity for many individuals on the platform to write and publish their own books in conjunction to their channels.

Now being a fan of many YouTubers myself, I have bought and read the books of some of my favourite YouTubers. Today I’m recommending Tanya Burr’s Love, Tanya.

Tanya Burr is a beauty and lifestyle blogger and YouTuber online. She also films the occasional vlog and uploads them to her channel. I find that Tanya is very similar to Fleur DeForce (whose book I recommended back in April) and as much their books are very similar, but as a fan of both I thoroughly enjoyed each book and eagerly read one after the other.

Tanya’s book provides a range of content similar to her online work. This includes fashion, beauty, love, friendship, relationships, baking, confidence, happiness and her own life. Much of this content is beauty related but this book is perfect for any fan of Tanya, since it includes autobiographical chapters and advice on anxiety and confidence, which allows Tanya to take her own anxiety as a positive thing to help others in the same position. Even without being a fan of Tanya and her channel, t71Tf3zlVuQLhe book offers top tips on so many different things including relationship tips such as date ideas and wonderful baking recipes.

love tanya 2While reading the book I found that I never wanted to put it down and kept reaching for it at every opportunity. The book is just brilliant; it is aesthetically pleasing with a lovely hardback cover and many of Tanya’s own photos are laced throughout. I also enjoy the professional photoshoot photos at the beginning of each chapter.

Tanya really worked hard on this book and made it for her fans and that is so obvious to see when you’re reading her writing. For me personally, it’s great to see more about the woman on the other side of my computer screen and really get to know her further.

Please go and check out Tanya’s book and channel (click here).

Book: The Glam Guide by FleurDeForce

Standard

812wXX2k9+LYouTube and the YouTube culture has increased dramatically in the last two years with many popular YouTubers being accepted into mainstream entertainment. With this has come the opportunity for many individuals on the platform to write and publish their own books in conjunction to their channels.

Now being a fan of many YouTubers myself, I have bought and read the books of some of my favourite YouTubers. Today I’m recommending Fleur De Force’s The Glam Guide.

Fleur De Force, who I have recommended on my blog before, is a beauty and lifestyle blogger and YouTuber online. She posts videos on beauty products, tutorials, reviews and fashion on her main channel, daily vlogs on her second channel and recipes and cooking on her food channel which she does with her husband, Mike, in connection to Sainsbury’s.20150406_124010

From this, she decided to write a book with the main purpose to inform and teach people about make-up and her recommended techniques and tips. The Glam Guide goes through beauty, hair, fashion, travel, health and fitness, life, love, YouTube and blogging and is very much the epitome of Fleur and her presence online.

Having an interest in beauty is pretty much necessary as a reason to pick up the book but The Glam Guide offers a lot more than that. It includes first date advice, confidence tips and motiv54db5507ec92dation; it includes recipes for juices and smoothies and a section on dreams and what they mean. All of this was deeply interesting to me and I really enjoyed reading it. Additionally, being a massive fan of Fleur I enjoyed seeing her voice throughout and especially reading the note to her subscribers at the very end of the book.

I saw myself reaching for the book at every opportunity that I could. Part of this was because of Fleur’s voice throughout but also the overall care and attention that this book has been privy to throughout its making is just so evident and it means so much more to read it. I just think it is beautifully laid out and has incredible illustrations.

I hope you check out Fleur and her channels and if The Glam Guide appeals to you, that you check that out too!
