Love, Tanya Review.

11 comments
 
You could say I've been pretty quick with this review, but I picked up Love, Tanya on a whim when I was browsing the books in Tesco. In all honesty, I don't actually tend to watch You Tube videos that much unless I'm looking for a specific tutorial but I have watched Tanya Burr before and enjoyed her makeup videos so I thought it would be worth a try. The design of the book really caught my eye on the shelves, it stood out from the more dark and plainer books - I know you shouldn't judge a book by its cover but I cant help it sometimes! As you can see the book has a crisp white design with a collage of Instagram style images.
 
I'd also like to point out that at 22, I am not sure I'm the target audience for the book as I think it may be geared towards the slightly younger ages but I did really enjoy the book and I was pleased to find myself feeling inspired. The book is split up into twelve different chapters. Each chapter has a different topic and I also liked that Tanya included scrapbook style pages to make notes - I liked that you get could creative whilst reading. I particularly enjoyed learning about Tanya's childhood, her and Jim's relationship and her work as a makeup artist. I also found it interesting reading how fast her You Tube channel grew and I do believe it's amazing that she gets to do something she loves everyday and be able to call it her career - good on her! There were some parts of the book that I did skim through such as the 'Fashion' chapter as I don't tend to enjoy reading about clothes and accessories I prefer to just buy them in the sale instead! There were also tips for first dates which I think was aimed towards younger readers. The book itself is not all text, there's a lot of model shoots of Tanya, quite a lot of lists and general pictures - which is good if you're not a big reader but I found that the book didn't take me long to work my way through due to this. I would have liked to read more about her makeup and you tube career in more depth. I was happy to see quite a few recipes towards the end of the book as I hadn't been expecting that. They all looked easy enough to make from yummy desserts to warming soup - I definitely want to try a few out for myself.
 
Overall, I really did enjoy the book and I am glad that I bought it. As I said, I did skim through some pages as they weren't for me but I did finish the book feeling inspired. I liked the layout and the design of the book and if you're a Tanya fan I really would recommend you pick it up!

  1. Great review! I've been waiting for someone to post their thoughts on it :) I found that Zoella's book was also targeted at much younger readers and that I managed to finish it in a couple of days! x

  6. I always um and ah about buying these type of books. I love that sort of books BUT I am not too sure what I feel about the whole you tubers becoming authors situation at the minute. Also I don't know whether its completely for me. A little pricey for what it is!

    Lovely review

  7. I have been waiting for a review of this book and I don't think I will buy it I knew it would have little bits of style makeup and cooking in it but I was really hoping for a more autobiographical book rather then a scrapbook! I am a big reader and don't think I would enjoy this too much

  11. I was thinking of getting this and Fleurs book too, but I'm not sure whether to or not. I've got so many books to read with a few on my Birthday wishlist and I still have to read Zoe's yet. I think I may wait until I've got through what I've got first x
