Self- Help

By: Miranda Sings
Location: 920 MIR
Genre: Yep another YouTuber book   

I had a good look at this book and chuckled- at times laughed out loud and I do confess to a bit of a snort as well.
This book is hilarious but bizarrely in a weird way- it is wise.
The thing is Miranda is not real- Miranda is fictional and the real Miranda is a very talented and qualified musician called Colleen Evans.
What I like is how she has adapted  the inside real character of what it is like to feel ridiculous, useless and incompetent and chucked it onto the stage for all to see what we know is tucked up inside of us. That is why 6 million people follow her, we all inside say "yes" to what she is portraying outwardly.
This book does the same!
"Over six million social media fans can’t be wrong: Miranda Sings is one of the funniest faces on YouTube. As a bumbling, ironically talentless, self-absorbed personality (a young Gilda Radner, if you will), she offers up a vlog of helpful advice every week on her widely popular YouTube channel. For the first time ever, Miranda is putting her advice to paper in this easy-to-follow guide, illustrated by Miranda herself. In it, you’ll find instructions on everything: how to get a boyfriend (wear all black and carry a fishing net), to dressing for a date (sequins and an orange tutu), to performing magic (“Magic is Lying”), and much, much more! Miranda-isms abound in these self-declared lifesaving pages, and if you don’t like it…well, as Miranda would say…“Haters, back off!”"
