I spend a ridiculous amount of time on YouTube. It’s becoming a problem and at some point, I’ll need to deal with this addiction. But for now, I’m going to try and spread the love of my Booktube channels that I’m constantly watching and impatiently waiting for the new videos from.
Kiera from Kiera’s bookish thoughts also spoke about her favorite Booktubers this month. Make sure to check out her post for more amazing recommendations!
When I first got hooked on BookTube, I used to watch most of the channels that Kiera listed, but in the last 2-3 years, I’ve slowly migrated to some other channels that I love so much.
MY TOP 6 BOOKTUBE CHANNELS
1 – BookswithEmilyFox
The first and probably my TOP Booktuber is Emily Fox from BookswithEmilyFox. Emily is a French Canadian, she also has a beauty channel that I watch only because I really love her personality. If you are looking for Sci-Fi / Fantasy orientated channel, this one is for you! And I also love the fact that she tries books in other genres. Sometimes it works for her, sometimes it doesn’t. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ But it’s always very entertaining!
2 – PeruseProject
Regan was the very first booktuber I watched 4 years ago when I discovered that people do talk about books on YouTube, which made me very excited! I’ve been watching her videos ever since. I particularly love her weekend reading vlogs. They are just long enough to put on the background while doing something else (who am I kidding here. I just stare at the video for the full 30 minutes and forget about everything else), but also very motivating to read more. Regan reads A LOT of fantasy, and she is a big fan of middle-grade books (which I can totally relate to!)
3 – Merphy Napier
I started watching Merphy’s videos when she had around 3k subscribers, and now she is on 36k! Crazy! And I also feel like the content she puts out improved over the years. I really love her monthly wrap-ups and her reading vlogs. I’ve been very into reading vlogs lately. They are just the best type of content to watch while writing posts for my blog. 😀
4 – MercysBookishMusings
Mercedes from MercysBookishMusings is not your regular YA fantasy booktuber. (nothing wrong about YA fantasy btw! 😀 ) And that’s why I love her channel so much, she offers some variety and I’m always drawn to watch her videos when I’m looking for something different to read – be it Literary Fiction or some quirky books.
5 – Elliot Brooks
This was a very recent discovery for me, but I just love Elliot! She has a great personality, she loves fantasy (especially Brandon Sanderson!), she seems to be a very outgoing and funny person. Elliot is also a self-published author and violinist! Her books talks are also very interesting to listen to! Check her violin piece inspired by «Skyward» by Brandon Sanderson:
6 – Book Roast
The creator of OWLs and NEWTs magical read-a-thons, G from Book Roast is not just a fabulous booktuber, she also has the most stunning Bookstagram account. I was her follower on Instagram before she started her youtube channel, it was very interesting to see it grow. I have to admit that I’m not a big fan of unboxing videos, which she does quite a lot, but she is just a very lovely human being, and I love watching her other videos.
