Millionaire YouTube star Zoella has faced criticism from disappointed fans over her new party planning guide.
The 28-year-old influencer, real name Zoe Sugg, released Cordially Invited, her first foray into non-fiction, earlier this month after publicising it extensively on her social media channels.
Fans were promised a 'beautifully photographed lifestyle book, divided into seasons and packed full of ideas, inspiration and DIYs', that covered everything from the influencer's favourite recipes to advice on decorations.
However the £10 title has been met with dozens of negative reviews online, with 54 per cent of shoppers giving it a one star rating:
Sounds like she's just cashing in on her brand without making any real effort. I'd be embarassed to write a book, knowing it was terrible. Although, I'm not really sure what her "fans" were expecting - Her videos are pretty much the same. Lots of pretty faces and footage of pretty objects with lots of pretty music but with very little substance. I guess it's easier to gloss over thin content on YouTube, not so much when it's in a book?
