Favorites: Booktubers

Posted on: September 6, 2014

It’s Saturday and time for another favorites blog post.

Today I want to introduce you to my favorite booktubers on YouTube. A booktuber is essentially a YouTuber that talks mainly about books. They do reviews, book related tags, read-alongs, readathons, book hauls etc.

Booktube is great because the videos posted are as informative as a blog post but you get to see the person and get a better sense of what they think of the books they’re talking about. Another perk is YouTube’s interactive nature and the fact that telling someone about your favorite book is more natural verbally.

So without further ado, here in no particular order are five of my favorite booktubers.

1. Katytastic

Kat is a fun and energetic booktuber. Her energy and love for books are a prominent part of her videos and she does great book reviews and hauls.


2. Little Book Owl

Catriona is Australian and the nicest booktuber you’ll ever see. She is so fun and enthusiastic about books and reading. It makes watching her videos quite entertaining and as a result as soon as I see a new video up I watch it immediately.


3. Novella Zoo

Novella is a quirky and funny Canadian who recently burst onto the Booktube stage. She hasn’t uploaded a ton of videos but I have enjoyed the ones she has uploaded very much.


4. Peruse Project

Regan is a proud Texan book lover. She loves historical fiction and is a sucker for anything bookish. She is fun and silly and she makes you smile with every video.


5. The Readables

Priscilla is into books and animation. She’s also very entertaining in her videos and her pop up animation for her videos are amazing. I really enjoy watching her reviews as I find them very thought provoking and interesting.


Honorable Mentions:

1. Jesse the Reader

Jesse is one of the few boys I see on Booktube and I think he does a great job representing the males. He isn’t shy about reading romance books and I think that is awesome. His videos are also very fun to watch.

2. Padfoot and Prongs 07

Raeleen is clearly a Harry Potter lover from her username but other than that she makes great videos and is quite entertaining to watch.

3. Ariel Bissett

Ariel Bissett is a bundle of joy. She is such a fun and endearing person. She is so passionate about books and booktube and she’s just refreshing to watch. I also really love her reviews, very insightful.
