Social Media Star Connor Franta Announces Second Book 'Note to Self'

Social Media Star Connor Franta Announces Second Book 'Note to Self'

Connor Franta is writing another book!

If you remember, the 24-year-old social media star’s first book “A Work In Progress” was released in 2015 and spent over 16 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller list.

His second will be titled “Note to Self” and Connor will “talk about his battles with clinical depression, social anxiety, self-love and acceptance; his desire to maintain an authentic self in a highly-edited, share-obsessed culture; a severe struggle of love and loss; and his renewed efforts to be in the moment, with others and himself.”

“Note to Self” is now available for pre-order and will drop on April 18.

JJJ Book Club: Sarah Cohen-Scali's 'Max' Book Cover Sparks Twitter Outrage

JJJ Book Club: Sarah Cohen-Scali's 'Max' Book Cover Sparks Twitter Outrage

There’s a saying that goes, “Never judge a book by it’s cover” — well, this book IS being judged and we’re pretty positive that it will make you judge too.

Moroccan-born French author Sarah Cohen-Scali‘s 2012 book “Max” is being translated into English for a release in North America — and avid book readers are just not thrilled or happy about the cover — in fact, they’re angry and pissed off.

The cover features a silhouetted fetus with a Nazi swastika on its’ arm — which is where the outrage lies.


Fierce Reads/GoodReads are currently holding a giveaway on their site and book readers on Twitter are just not having it and tweeting the truth about how they feel about the book’s cover.

One reader stated that it was another strike for the website, as they were promoting another novel as well which was deep in the race card.

Here’s the summary for “Max”: Nazi Germany. 1936. The Lebensborn program is going strong as German women are carefully selected by the Nazis and recruited to give birth to new representatives of the Aryan race. Inside one of these women is Max, a fetus waiting to be born and fulfill his destiny as the perfect Aryan.

Max is taken away from his birth mother as soon as he enters the world. He will be raised under the leadership and ideologies of the Nazi Party. As he grows up without a mom, without any affection or tenderness, according to Nazi educational precepts, he soon becomes the mascot of the program. But things don’t go according to plan.

JJJ Book Club: Keke Palmer Reveals Last Sneak Peek To New Book (Read Here!)

Keke Palmer has just released her final sneak peek for her new book, “I Don’t Belong To You” and it’s a really amazing read.

In the excerpt, the Scream Queens star opens up about posting a no makeup selfie on her Instagram, only to be met with a ton of ugly comments after a blog turned the picture around and twisted into something else.

“I began to think harder about the post’s (on the blog) responses and even more about the young women (and some men) who seemed hurt by the poisonous arrows meant for me,” one part reads.

You can read it all below and check out new pics of Keke out with a friend in Los Angeles.

The epilogue will pick up five years after Allegiant wraps.

“I’ve always said that the Divergent series felt complete to me, but a little while ago I realized there was still some of the story that I had left untold,” Veronica shared. “So I wrote something just for myself about what Tobias had been up to.”
