    Every year on Christmas Eve my parents used to give me an annual, but when I outgrew annuals and they were no longer being sold for anyone over a certain age (because they were far too childish), my parents started buying me a book every year instead. This year I got this - an Ariana Grande biography. I didn't even know it existed, but it goes to show how well my parents know me. I love Ariana, and I have since she first appeared on my TV as Cat Valentine in Victorious.

This year I got this - an Ariana Grande biography. I didn't even know it existed, but it goes to show how well my parents know me. I love Ariana, and I have since she first appeared on my TV as Cat Valentine in Victorious. ''She's going to be a huge singer one day,'' I would think to myself as I watched the odd time she would belt out incredible vocals mid-episode. And I was right. This book just demonstrates what a journey she has been on, and how much more she has to experience in the future. Ariana's life is fascinating; from a regular girl from Florida who loves plays and music to a world-wide known celebrity with three albums to her name. She has had an incredibly journey and this book just makes me incredibly proud to be a fan of hers. I challenge you to read the chapters about the Manchester attack and not cry or at least get emotional - seriously, it's impossible! I read this book within less than 24 hours because even though I knew almost everything it was saying anyway (I've been a fan for a while) I still enjoyed reading all about her life, hearing about what her childhood was like and reading how far she has come since being the innocent, giggly red-head on my TV screen every day to being the sexy, confident woman whose albums are blasted out on my CD player everyday. This is a must-read for anyone interested in Ariana Grande or anyone who is a fan of hers because this truly highlights her journey so far, and is an effective reminder of how proud Arianators should be of their idol...

    This was a nice read and since it's an unauthorized biography it does its own thing but paints a nice enough picture of Ariana's life and it was a fun read. I like Ariana and it was nice reading about albums and songs. I am not well nowadays so might add to the review later. People who don't read generally ask me my reasons for reading. Simply put I just love reading and so to that end I have made it my motto to just Keep on Reading.

Simply put I just love reading and so to that end I have made it my motto to just Keep on Reading. I love to read everything except for Self Help books but even those once in a while. I read almost all the genres but YA, Fantasy, Biographies are the most. My favorite series is, of course, Harry Potter but then there are many more books that I just adore. I have bookcases filled with books which are waiting to be read so can't stay and spend more time in this review, so remember I loved reading this and love reading more, you should also read what you love and then just Keep on Reading.

    This book made me think about how things will always get better and to stay strong when the book was talking about the one love manchester attacks: “Cherish every moment even if your stressed out or hurt… there’s always tomorrow and it always gets better.” The writer is teaching us about how things will always get better and to make the best out of something bad because whether you see it or not there is so much to be positive for, or in Ariana’s case where she had the bombing at her concert she This book made me think about how things will always get better and to stay strong when the book was talking about the one love manchester attacks: “Cherish every moment even if your stressed out or hurt… there’s always tomorrow and it always gets better.” The writer is teaching us about how things will always get better and to make the best out of something bad because whether you see it or not there is so much to be positive for, or in Ariana’s case where she had the bombing at her concert she made the best out of something by giving up her time to raise funds at the benefit concert and seeing the fans who got injured in the attack and giving spending time with them. In my opinion, you need to stay strong because it will get better and a lot of people are struggling so I think it is important for people to know this.

    I love Ariana enough to have read this bathroom lecture. I enjoyed it fine for the most part, and did a cry during the Manchester chapters, but while I can accept fluff content (what else was I expecting) I noticed some factual errors that felt too blatant to give this a higher rating.

But not this one. Danny White succeeds in creating a real believable biography that permit you get to know Ariana a bit more. It includes the most important aspects that surrounded Ariana until that time and it focuses on her music and on the process of doing an album. What I have to highlight the most about the book is undoubtedly the chapter regarding the Manchester attach and the later One Love Concert. It gives you goosebumps, it is incredibly well described and explained. Also, I like the author’s writing style, there are many parts written beautifully as “And if there is a moment in Ariana’s life to take from this chapter, it should be the moment she stood on the stage at the One Love concert, healing the wounds of a heartbroken nation..” The reason for the fifth star left is because it could have included a few pictures more and that I felt that in some parts of the book the author takes too long talking about other people as Scooter Braun or Justin Bieber when one paragraph could be enough. But all in all, the book is a fantastic biography that you can read in just one afternoon and get t know Ariana better, which in the end, is the purpose of the book.

    Im so obsessed the moment i saw this bcoz im a fan of Ariana. I bought it immediately. I just finished reading it an hour ago, It took me whole night to finish this book. Now i kinda know Ariana, it bought me to another side of her that i didnt knew her. This book impressed me but there's still some part missing that i want to know about her... (her relationships, veganism) It also lack pictures, lots of fans would enjoy this more if there's more pictures of her. 4 stars bcoz I dont like the cover Im so obsessed the moment i saw this bcoz im a fan of Ariana.

Im not a fan of hardbound books with dust jacket cover. Its a very very pretty cover but why its only paper? Ariana fans like me would appreciate a very pretty efforted book like this, bcoz a famous person's face doesnt approve on a glossy dust jacket. Fans would love it if it was in good shape Otherwise its affordable and its a great collector book for Ariana's fans---- but I suggest Arianators should buy the latest biography, this one is released 2017.

    A bunch of incorrect information, and it follows a very predictable, boring structure. New album, list of track-list with a bunch of lame, re-used adjectives to describe each song, and some quotes from music websites about the album. However, the book is very good and descriptive in describing Ariana’s early life. If only the author hadn’t gotten lazy after that portion.
