YOUTUBE star Zoella has been blasted for her new self-help guide — which includes advice for Millennials on how to take a walk and how to make a sandwich.
The vlogger, 28, real name Zoe Sugg, promised fans that her first non-fiction book Cordially Invited would be full of “simple but impressive DIYs”.
However, readers have claimed the £20 title was “written for people with less than five brain cells” as it contains 256 pages of “idiotic” hints and tips such as a recipe on how to make mashed potato.
The star, sister of Strictly favourite Joe Sugg, uses several pages in the novel, which is aimed at 20-year-olds, explaining how to go for a walk during each season.
Zoe advises in the spring section: “Take an umbrella — weather can be a little unpredictable at this time of year so it’s best to be prepared.”
She later reminds readers to wear a coat in winter and take sunglasses if the weather is nice.
Zoe includes several basic recipes in her book including how to make a ham and cheese sandwich.
She writes: “When ready to assemble your sandwiches, lay your bread out on your work surface and butter each slice.”
The social media sensation also guides the reader through hosting a party.
Zoe uses multiple pages to explain how to make a paperchain and reiterates basic manners, as she writes: “Always say thank you after the event – even if just by text or Whatsapp”.
Other advice says to eat chocolate at Easter, play Monopoly as a party game and make sure guests have fresh sheets.
Zoe also guides fans through writing on a chalkboard.
But many readers have hit out at the book, dubbing it an “absolute waste of money.”
One blasted: “From start to finish this reads like a manual for the most stupid of people.

"It revels in making the most simplistic and obvious ideas into over embellished nonsense.”
Another said: “All the ideas in this book can easily be found online for free and I think it’s insulting to have things like “change your bed” or “clean your house” as actual ideas and organisation tips.”
