Young, beautiful and with nearly seven million subscribers following her every word on Youtube, and not to mention her 5.5 million followers on Twitter and Instagram, it's no wonder Zoella is taking the literary world by storm. Seriously, this girl writes a book and the world goes MAD.

The talented 24-year-old YouTube sensation Zoe Sugg, or to those in the know, Zoella, seems to be having the best year ever. She has launched her own beauty brand, won a Radio 1 Teen Award, was asked by Sir Geldof to sing on Band Aid (not sure how she is qualified for this) and is now breaking literary records.

Her first book Girl Online, has become the fastest selling debut novel ever. Selling 78,000 copies in it's first week. That beats Harry Potter, yes Harry Potter penned by literacy legend JK Rowling, and 50 Shades Of Grey.

The novel for young adults, follows the story of Penny, a teenager who blogs about her hidden feelings on friendship, boys and her anxieties. I see Zoella really stretched herself with this one.

Rights to Girl Online have been sold in twenty five countries and is due a sequel in 2015.

Got to respect the girl's hustle, she seems to be doing everything right.
