A Bookish Guide to YouTube

Booktubers are massive right now and there are so many that sometimes it can be hard to find a booktuber you love watching. I watch a variety of different channels, so I thought I would share some of my favourites with you today.

booksandquills is run by Sanne, a Dutch YouTuber who moved to London and now works as Digital Coordinator at Hot Key Books and Piccadilly Press. I’ve loved Sanne’s videos for ages now and watch every single one without fail.

readsusieread is a US channel run by Susie, who is a librarian. I particularly love Susie’s feature where she talks about the books she’s checked out from the library – it isn’t something I’ve seen on any other channel!

Run by Ashley, I love climbthestacks because I always manage to find out about new books when I visit her channel. Although we don’t often read the same genre of books, I love this because I’m then more open to trying out new things to read.

Benjaminoftomes is run by the brilliant Ben, whose enthusiasm for books is infectious. His videos never fail to put a smile on my face! He also makes awesome recommendations videos and I always manage to add books to my wishlist after watching them.

Sarah Churchill is a Welsh booktuber who I’ve had the pleasure to meet a number of times now, and she is very lovely! She recently ran #AntiBullyReads, which I think is such a lovely idea and I wish I could have participated in it. Hopefully next year, if Sarah decides to run it again!

I’ve only recently started watching Megan Olivier’s channel, but I really enjoyed watching her recent vlogmas videos and catching up on all the videos I’ve missed.

Who are your favourite booktubers?

    Away to go and check some of these booktubers out. I already follow Ben and I agree that his charisma and bubbly personality just make you want to keep watching his videos. I also love how he reads and will spotlight underhyped and indie books too – you don’t see much of that.

    I love Sanne’s video’s (ANOTHER DUTCHIE, yeay :D) and I added Susie & Sarah to my list. I always look around for new booktubers to help me get better on my channel – and to get fun discussions and recommendations. Thanks for sharing!

    My favourite booktubers are Ariel Bissett,I love her honesty and that she’s not afraid to disagree with things, and Helene Jeppessen, she has an enviable collection and she’s so friendly.

    Such a fab list of BookTubers – I think I’m already subscribed to all them *go me* 🙂

    The Bitter Productions is also a good one to look out for!

    To be honest, I don’t really watch too many videos. I’ve never really been into them because I like reading posts! I would say that Christine was the first one I’d ever watched. I’ve also seen Jesse the Reader and Ariel Bissett. They’re all awesome!

    Also, just because this has been bugging me, do you ever feel like there’s a divide between BookTubers and bloggers? I feel like we love the same thing [books] but we don’t really talk as much as I thought we would. Just a thought!

    Anyway, great post, Lucy <33

    Great post, Lucy! Aside from Sanne and Benjamin, I haven’t heard of the others on here so I’m really excited to check them out.

    As for my favorite booktubers, I absolutely adore Ellen Lundström who used to be Astrid the Bookworm. I also love Peruse Project, Lit Journal, and Jean of Bookish Thoughts who I think has changed her channel name.

    Might do a post on my favorite booktubers and booklrs as well! 🙂
