BookTubers I've Been Loving (Spring)


As well as indulging in bookish content via blogs, I also happen to watch a lot of book related content on YouTube - much like us here in the book community, there is a whole community of like minded people talking all things books & reading over on YouTube. Unlike book blogging, where I'm quite active, I'm very much a silent watcher over on YouTube, however that is something I've been trying to work on this year - being more interactive via the platform. Whilst that does mean commenting more on videos and such, I also want to do this by sharing some of the BookTuber's whose content I've been loving of late (with the aim of this being a quarterly series). 

So, onto the content creators...

On her channel, Lauren shares a wide variety of content but with a predominantly bookish background - with vlogs, hauls, TBR's and so much more to be found. Not only do I love Lauren's content as she has kind of an eclectic reading taste, like myself, but she has this amazing bubbly personality that just oozes through the screen; you feel welcome on her channel. Lauren also hosts 'Cosy Reading Night', which I took part in earlier this spring (for the first time) and it was a lot of fun!

If you were to watch just the one recent video... D is for... Dress Sizes (not a bookish video, but one I'd recommend to anyone & everyone)

HELENE JEPPESEN
A Danish YouTuber, I've been watching Helene for many years now (in fact she was one of the first BookTuber's I discovered) and have especially been enjoying the content she has been putting out so far this year. Not only does Helene share a wide variety of bookish content, but her apartment is just beautiful, especially her wall of bookshelves. I absolutely love watching her monthly reading vlogs, and although Helene reads quite widely, you'll often find her with a classic or some literary fiction in hand.

If you were to watch just the one recent video... Book Hangovers (we all get them - Helene shares some of the good & bad book hangovers she has experienced)

Jen is an author & book reviewer who leads a rather literary life. I've yet to read any of Jen's fiction writing, however her non fiction title, The Bookshop Book, is one I pick up time & time with it possessing a real comfort reading quality for me. On her YouTube channel, Jen shares all about her current reads and hauls books, as well as having a more personal element to her content, opening up about her health, doing Q&A's and also sharing a weekly vlog once a month (some of my favourite videos to watch as she leads such an interesting life).

If you were to watch just the one recent video... Bookshelf Tour | 2018 (you'll love a nosey at Jen's book collection... Well, us bookworms love to nose at any book collection really)

So there you have it, the three BookTubers whose videos I've been gravitating towards the most so far this spring... Not only do I click on their videos straight away when browsing my subscriptions, but I also always come away with at least one book recommendation when having finished a video.

FUN FACT | I once attempted to make a YouTube video, a book haul in fact, and it was probably the most cringe thing of my life. It's safe to say that it'll never see the light of day on a public platform!

If you're someone who watches book related YouTube videos, I'd love to know some of your favourites.

  2. I haven't really given any thought to following book-tubers, so thanks for this list as an intro! I've watched a few of Jen Campbell's videos in the past, but haven't followed anyone recently -- and I love a good bookshelf tour, so I may at least take a peek at that one :)

    1. Bookshelf tours & reading vlogs are two of my favourite things to watch with regards to the book community on YouTube. I hope you enjoy some of these :-)

  3. I haven't tried any booktubers but I've started using YouTube more recently and I definitely want to check some out. I'm adding these to my list to try - especially Lauren and the Books.

    1. I watch way too much on YouTube - and often times my reading reflects that. Haha! There are some really great booktubers out there, so I hope you find some amazing people to follow. Bookshelf tours & reading vlogs are my go to videos.
