Adultolescence by Gabbie Hanna Review

Poetry. It illuminates the mind and speaks from the heart. Poetry is the art of piercing the soul and opening oneself for all the world to see.
It allows poets to pour their hearts out and wear their emotions out on their sleeves, whether they be hopeful, romantic or sometimes sad. In
the book Adultolescene, poet Gabbie Hanna shows the world the humor she’s become known for and the depth and emotion that dwells within her, and
is brought to stunning life through over 200 pages of rich poetry and beautiful illustrations. Here is a synopsis:

From Teen Choice Award-nominated comedian and vlogger Gabbie Hanna, known on YouTube as The Gabbie Show, an astounding debut poetry collection that captures the essence of what it means to come of age in today’s world.

Full of confessional, whimsical, and darkly humorous observations about life, love, and the early years of adulthood, this collection of over 150 poems, each illustrated by Gabbie herself, will introduce you to the unique point of view of one of the internet’s most remarkable voices.

The popular online personality showcases her incredibly smart comedy skills with her heartfelt emotional tales of breakups, childhood and loss,
and the struggle many young adults face as the years between childhood and adulthood are bridged. The piercing emotions displayed in these poems
is beautiful, sometimes tragic and yet authentic in every way. Poems such as “Time”, which explores the connections we make with loved ones, or
“Poetry”, which shows the struggle to communicate the feelings one has for someone they love. One poem that I especially loved was a short one
called “Nap”, which in it’s simplicity spoke volumes of the feeling of loss that feels like it will never heal, and yet often is reawoken
unexpectedly.

These poems are a real work of art, and it’s refreshing in this digital age to see the art of poetry is not dead but thriving in our society.
The recent trend of online personalities writing their memoirs has been a popular trend that I have enjoyed, but this change of writing
style-wise is a fantastic approach to opening the readers minds and hearts and discusssing important topics in sometimes lighthearted and often
impactful ways. Whether you buy this book as a fan of Gabbie’s or as a true lover of poetry, this is a book everyone needs to have in their lives.

Over the years, the worlds of YouTube and the book industry have merged with the release of several popular YouTuber’s books, from Shane
Dawson and Justine Ezarik to Miranda Sings and Tyler Oakley. Ranging from fiction to memoirs, these books have revitalized an interest in reading
amongst younger audiences. One YouTuber is looking to not only continue that tradition, but to bring to light topics worth discussing, from

finding the strength to tackle poor mental health. From self-image struggles to important life lessons about family, friendship, love and
mindset, Fully Functioning Human (Almost) is a warm, illuminating memoir full of wit and wisdom that doubles up as a life guide for millennials.

Vlog Like A Boss: How To Kill It Online With Video Blogging by Amy Schmittauer

Learn how to master the world of video with Amy Schmittauer’s incredible video marketing book, Vlog Like A Boss!

I was given a free copy of this book for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

I have been a fan of YouTube star and social media expert Amy Schmittauer for a couple of years now. So when I heard that she was writing and
publishing a book on video marketing, I knew I had to get myself a copy. I was even more stunned when I was sent an email with an advance reading
copy (ARC) of this incredible book, and I’m so honored to be one of the lucky ones to get to dive headfirst into this eye-opening book.

The book, or memoir or “how-to” book in question is called Vlog Like A Boss: How To Kill It Online With Video Blogging by Amy Schmittauer, and
I can honestly say that this is one of the most insightful YouTube and video marketing books I’ve ever read. Over the last few years I’ve read some
marketing books, but this one does a masterful job of detailing the process of getting into making video and explaining it in a way that both
seasoned filmmakers and aspiring YouTubers both can understand.

One thing that jumped out immediately was how Amy was able to write in a voice that spoke to everyone, from the young millennial eager to make
their own YouTube channel to the experienced business owner who’s seeking a helping hand using video for their work. Using fun and fascinating
tales from her own life to help explain the process, this book goes to great lengths to outline the entire video process, from identifying the
common fears of being on camera, to the equipment one will need for video and editing, to the way to identify with your audience and create a
video that will resonate with viewers.

Overall, this was a fantastic read that was both enjoyable and instructive. As someone trying to build and improve on my own YouTube channel, I
can tell you that this book has been illuminating. Taking the tools I learned from this book, I can identify problem areas with my filming, and
improve on it. From ways to generate ideas to what social media platforms work best and how they work with your videos, this is a book any
video creator will not want to miss. Inspiring, educational, and all around fun, Vlog Like A Boss by Amy Schmittauer is a must read book in
2017, and thus I give it a 10/10 rating. I will leave links to both Amy’s YouTube channel and her official book website below, and I hope you
guys will not only subscribe to her, but pre-order your copies of this book today. Vlog Like A Boss comes out on January 31st, 2017!
