For some reason, I used to never be crazy about BookTube. I understood it to be a site for music videos and Khan Academy. However, this has recently changed. I have discovered some amazing people on YouTube that are so entertaining to watch and I want to share that with you!
The Book Castle
The Book Castle is the first channel I started watching. I had followed her lovely Tumblr forever but didn’t realize that she did videos and then when I did… it opened a new world to me. I discovered BookTube. I love The Book Castle because she reads books that I don’t generally pick up on first impulse–Adult Literary Fiction, Nonfiction, and Poetry. She reads such a diverse selection of authors that I feel like I’m always finding something I’ve never heard of on her channel. She is also from Norway and will post videos about living in Europe which are interesting and pretty!
Reagan from Peruse Project was my next find on YouTube. I love her channel because she really mixes it up by not only talking about books but also talking about fashion, beauty, and home goods. She has really pretty style so it’s always great to get new ideas from her recent buys!
Hailey In Bookland
Hailey is the bookworm I relate to the most. She is always really real and honest about bookworm struggles like taking on too many responsibilities and getting down on yourself when you don’t finish those responsibilities fast enough. I think she’s really funny and positive and I find we have very similar reading tastes.
Patricia is the only fashion YouTuber I follow. She is HILARIOUS. Even if you aren’t interested in fashion, I would recommend watching it. She is so funny and smart and I want her to succeed in everything she does!
The Food Ranger
Boyfriend actually introduced me to Trevor from The Food Ranger. I think the mark of a good food video is that is makes me hungry and these videos never fail to do that. Also it’s really awesome to see Trevor teach his viewers about different cultures. He goes places that are way past most tourist stops to get to places rich in tradition. It makes me want to travel there badly!
First We Feast: Hot Ones
Hot Ones is another show boyfriend introduced to me. It’s this show that gets a celebrity to interview with them while eating progressively spicy wings. And this isn’t just regular spicy, we’re talking millions on the Scoville Scale for measuring pepper spice. It’s great to see how people react to these spices. Also it’s really impressive to see the host continue to eat up until the very spiciest wing every single time.
Those are the shows that I watch and enjoy on YouTube as of now! If you have an interesting YouTube recommendations, please tell me! I would love to expand my horizons!
