Have you guys heard of "Booktube"? It's basically this fantastic aspect of Youtube where people talk about BOOKS. You can find Hauls, Tags, Challenges, Reviews and more on this side of the internet and it's basically like pure gold for any book lover out there.
I thought I'd compile a list of my favorite booktubers for your viewing pleasure and from there, you can find others that tickle your fancy. This list is in no particular order.
This channel was my first introduction to the Booktube community. Sanne is from The Netherlands and has amazing taste in books. She also reads a variety of books, which is nice (and unusual) in the Booktube community. She always has critical and thought out reviews and opinions on each book.
Reagan reads mostly YA and Adult Fantasy. She has a sarcastic sort of wit and always creates absolutely hilarious and entertaining videos. Personally, I love Adult Fantasy so I have always loved her channel, but even if you don't, she does many Haul/Challenge videos which can appeal to any book lover.
Christine makes me laugh. If you love YA, she's the girl to watch. She is extremely excitable and energetic, which is always really fun to watch on Youtube. Her channel is really popular, and I think it's due to her personality and excellent editing. What I really like about Christine, though, is that she branches out from the typical Booktuber videos. She's really creative. Check out her Mourning Period video to see what I mean.
I like Ariel Bisset for the same reason I like Sanne from BooksandQuills: she really thinks and dissects what she's reading. She also has videos where she discusses a topic related to books. Her Sex in Books!? videos is one of my all-time favorites by her. She also predominately reads YA, but has been trying to branch out lately, which I appreciate.
5. Joel Books
Joel is a booktuber I've only recently discovered, but I completely love him. He is hilarious. Once again, he reads mostly YA (you will quickly discover that most of the Booktubers read YA) but he is so ridiculously entertaining that every video put out by him is worth the watch, although I particularly liked SLOW READER SHAME.
I love this girl. I love her because of the variety of books she reads. She reads everything from YA to Anita Blake and, as I mentioned earlier, that is so rare in the Booktube community and so refreshing. She is hilarious, insightful and quite possible one of my all-time favorites.
