NEWS: W H Smith announce exclusive book club with the fabulous Zoella

The high street retailer, W H Smith, are launching a book club with YouTube star and author fantastico, Zoella. And we are HUNGRY for it.

To begin in the summer it will include a range of titles across different genres and age groups but it’s focus is on a younger audience. The director has said they have been “working hard to get great books into the hands of more teens and young adults”.


And who better than the young woman who took the YA market by storm with ‘Girl Online’?  It has sold nearly 400,000 copies in hardback and the trading controller for the store says “we knew she was the girl our customers wanted to hear more from”. No, duh!

Zoella is the perfect choice for a campaign like this and we can’t wait to see which titles are promoted. You can read more about it here.

Excited for it too? Tweet us @maximumpopbooks
