BookTube is Cutting into my Reading Time

BookTube is Cutting into my Reading Time

I discovered booktube late in 2017.  If you haven’t heard of booktube or want to know more, check out my guide on finding the best creators and content  Discovering Booktube 

Since discovering this platform my to-be-read list has doubled and my reading time has evaporated!

When I first started watching these videos – I would watch whatever popped up based on the YouTube algorithms.  Now, I have found several channels that are my go-to for certain genres.  When diving into booktube, you’ll notice the same faces keep popping up as recommended videos, however the further you dive in, you’ll realize how vast this community is and how there are different niche groups within the booktube world.

This month I wanted to share with you 5 favorite booktubers that focus on adult fiction.

Sometimes the best booktube video to watch is after you’ve read a book and you want to hear another review, differing opinion or additional discourse. Sometimes you find creators that you’d want to have a cup of tea or pint of beer with.
