Booktubers I follow

The short story of how I discovered booktube:
I was browsing Youtube when I came across a booktalk of one of my most favourite books. I was intrigued and so I clicked to watch it.

Said booktalk was of Christine Riccio from PolanBananasBOOKS. I liked her immediately and went to watch all of her other videos. Let me tell you, I had so much fun watching them.
If I wasn't the shy person that I am, I would have gone into booktubing. Then again, writing is much more of my thing.
Over time I came across a few other wonderful booktubers, whom I'm going to talk about in this post today.
Booktubers I follow, here we go:

                                   Christine Riccio from PolanbananasBOOKS

Christine is the one who introduced me to booktubing and I'm so glad for it. Becuase It's such an amazing world.
I'm always so excited whenever I see she posted a new video. She's so fun and funny and her videos always make me smile and laugh and vigorously nod in agreement.
She has two channels: PolandbananasBOOKS (there is actually a story behind the name) which is about, you guessed it, books. And another channel called Polandbananas20, where she uploads all sorts of fun and interesting videos (which don't necessarily have to do with books).
If you love booktubing or if you're just looking for a way to get into this world, I highly-highly recommend you start with Christine.

Sasha Alsberg from abookutopia

Sasha is such a sweet and fun booktuber.
She just published her first book, called Zenith, with her friend Lindsay Cummings (who wrote The Murder Complex and The Balance Keepers trilogy, which I've heard about but never read).
As an aspiring writer myself, I can't help but both admire and cheer Sasha for writing and now publishing her first book. It gives people who want to write and publish their own book one day, hope that it's possible to achieve such a thing.
Congratulations, Sasha! 

Regan Perusse from PeruseProject

I enjoy Regan's videos. She doesn't do many Booktalks but she has great book hauls, wrap ups, book tags and book recommendations.
If you enjoy all of those, you should really check PeruseProject out. 

Kat O'Keeffe from Katytastic

I found Kat not long after Christine. And apparently, they are also very good friends.
I really enjoy all of Kat's videos. She's a great booktuber and I highly recommend you check her channel out. 

                                              Beth Crowley from bethj007

Beth Crowley is not exactly a booktuber but she has a lot to do with books.
I should probably explain this better:
Beth is a song writer who both plays and sing her songs. A lot of her songs are based on books, and let me tell you - she captures the book's essence in such a beautiful way that will take your breath away. She's truly amazing and extremely talented.
I first new her from her song Warrior, which is based on the mortal instruments. If you're new to my blog, then you probably don't know: The mortal instruments is one of my most-most-most (add a few more most's here and there) favourite books - EVER. Cassandra Clare is one of my most favourite authors - EVER.
Where was I? Oh, right. So Beth Crowley is an amazing artist.
Should you check her out? definitely.

  1. That's so cool about Beth! I didn't know her. I've seen videos by Christine, Regan and Kat and I've liked them, they are really fun. I didn't know Sasha until now, so thank you for introducing her to me. Great list ;)

    1. My pleasure ^^
      I love those girls - If I managed to get at least one person to know about them, I'm glad.
      Beth is amazing and crazy talented - as you probably seen by now :D
