In case you’ve been living under a rock in 2016 (which is totally understandable because this year has sucked) then you may have missed out on the cultural bombshell that was Zoella’s Book Club. Back in early March, Zoella announced that she would be working in partnership with WHSmith to promote eight of her favourite YA and adult book titles to her fans – and it was a MASSIVE success.
Now, almost nine months later, Zoe is back again for round two with eight more hand-selected fiction novels for her fans to read: “The response for the first book club was so overwhelming and positive and I’m so excited to share my next eight book choices, I hope everyone enjoys these as much as the first”. You can check out her selections in the video below:
Here is a full list of the books you can expect to see in specially allocated “bays” starting today (Thursday 20th October):
- Patrick Ness – A Monster Calls
- Sophie Kinsella – Finding Audrey
- David Levithan – The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily
- Sue Wallman – Lying About Last Summer
- Paige Toon – The One We Fell In Love With
- Gayle Forman – I Was Here
- Alex Bell – Frozen Charlotte
- Meredith Russo – If I Was Your Girl
Jo Sayer, the trading controller at WHSmith, added this to Zoe’s announcement video: “We have been absolutely delighted with the hype created around the Zoella Book Club. It has been fantastic to see so many of the online posts from young readers who are now enjoying reading again, thanks to Zoe’s recommendations. We’re confident this next list will not disappoint and sincerely hope we can encourage even more young people to engage in books”.
If you get your hands on any of Zoella’s latest WHSmith picks, then make sure you get onto the #ZoellaBookClub trend and keep your eyes peeled for future interviews and Zoe-themed content!
