YouTube Star Grace Helbig Hits #1 On New York Times Best Sellers List

Grace Helbig can now add “#1 New York Time Best Seller” to her growing laundry list of entertainment industry accolades.

The twentysomething YouTube millionaire (whose ItsGrace channel is now in possession of more than 1.9 million subscribers and counting) released her 240-page debut advice and how-to book, Grace’s Guide: The Art of Pretending To Be A Grown-Up under Simon & Schuster’s Touchstone imprint on October 21, 2014. One week later, thanks to Helbig’s fervent fan base, seven-city book tour (some pictures of which you can check out below), overwhelmingly positive customer reviews, strong comedic talents, and all-around affability, the book is #1 on NYT’s “Best Sellers Advice, How-To and Miscellaneous” list.

Take a look below and note the authors (like Peter Thiel and Oprah Winfrey) who Helbig’s book beat out:

Here’s what Helbig had to tweet about the news:

The top spot on the New York Times list is the second first place Helbig’s had in less than two-months time. On September 1, 2014, her Not Too Deep audio-video hybrid podcast debuted at #1 on iTunes. And that’s not all!

Not content with YouTube, audio, and literary fame, Helbig may be headed to your television by way of a talk show on E! in the not-so-distant future. If you want some tips and tricks on how she made it all happen, there’s a best-selling how-to guide you should probably think of purchasing.
