Zoella is at the top of her YouTube career right now. As well as having the ‘Most Popular Book In Secondary Schools‘ and being named the “most influential woman of the decade” in Technology by Grazia, Zoe Sugg just announced her brand new partnership with the British store WHSmith – the official Zoella Book Club!
After holding the title for both the fastest selling book of 2014 AND the highest first week sales of a debut novel since records began, it’s clear that Zoella not only knows what it takes to be a successful author, but also an avid reader. On her blog where she announced the news today, Zoe talks about her passion for reading; “Nothing is quite as special as picking up a new book and getting lost in it”, so we’re all super excited to learn more about her new Book Club venture.
Coming to a book store near you in June 2016, Zoella’s Book Club will be “a fun and amazing way to share [her] favourite books, authors and stories with [her] readers, viewers and followers”. Over the next few months, Zoe will be taking advice and suggestions from her fans on what books she needs to read before announcing her top eight picks right before Summer, alongside exclusive videos of precisely why she recommends them. The Book Club will also feature “questions, author interviews, author guest posts, lots of discussions around the books and much more”, so stay tuned for more information on the official WHSmith website.
Talking about their partnership with Zoella, WHSmith shares their excitement over working with such an influential 21st Century icon; “With such a clear understanding of young people today and an open and down-to-earth persona that her fans adore her for, Zoe is the perfect fit for a book club for young readers”. We can’t wait to hear Zoe’s recommendations, just in time to grab a copy and head for the beach this summer!
