Girl Online by Zoe Sugg: This is not a literary art work but it’s entertaining. And exactly what I needed after my last book which was great but sad (We were the lucky ones). The ‘author’ is a British blogger called Zoella, who has more than 12 million subscribers. But I have the impression that the actual author is the co-writer. Her name is Siobhan Curham (credit where credit is due). So lean back and enjoy this ride with Penny and Noah and all their teenage problems.
Girl Online: On Tour by Zoe Sugg: Once I get obsessed with something there is no stopping me. Right after the first book ‘Girl Online’ I started with the second. It is after all a book which reads itself. with a bit of time on my hand I am sure I can finish it in one go. With work and everything else it takes a bit longer. Nonetheless part 2 is as fluffy as the first one and the woes and troubles continue. You get even a bit of insight in a rock star life on tour. Perfect for the beach.
Der Kleine Prinz by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry: Maybe I am a bit insensitive and I am not into philosophy. So even though I liked the book I cannot say that there was a deeper meaning for me. Of course the very famous quote: “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” gives a powerful message. I am just not sure if there was another one. Or maybe I understood it all too well, the different planets and the people who waste their life on them. Maybe I already live life to the fullest?
The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer: As usual when you don’t expect much you get surprised. I am normally sceptical of autobiographies by people fairly young (see Lena Dunham’s book). I listened to Amy Schumer reading her book and I really liked it a lot. She is very candid about everything, starting with her parents marriage, her father’s disease and her vagina. It’s fun listening to it but also makes you think about gun control.
