I have been watching Mercedes' videos since she began and I always enjoy them. Her book reviews are always really thorough, yet spoiler-free, and I always come away with books to add to my 'to buy' list. Whilst her hauls are few and far between (I wish I was as restrained!) you can check out her latest haul here, containing lots of second hand books. Mercy's channel is a great place to go if you're in the market for a new read but want to read a review first, and it's also the place to go to watch this video with her boyfriend about non-readers.
Lesley has really great taste in both classic and children's literature, and she's also a bit of a pro at tag videos which I absolutely love watching. Lesley's videos are also all pretty concise so they're perfect if you only have a few minutes to spare...or if you are actually meant to be working / studying! Not only am I a fan of her tag videos, aswell as her hauls, I also really like her '10 Things You May Not Know' videos.
Okay, so Chelsea's channel isn't majorly about books but it's a bloody good channel and she has my favourite bookshelf tour video because her taste in books is quite similar to mine. Every time I watch it I find a new book to add to my list. If you're a movie fan, you can also go to her other channel CinOphelia to watch some film related reviews and tags! Oh, and she also has a video about sexy cinematic lions...What's not to like?!
Ricquetta took a break from booktube this year but she recently posted a new video. I'm so glad that she's back because she has a beautiful collection of books and each and every one of them is gift worthy! I really enjoyed her 'How to treat a book' video, and her hauls make for good viewing.
If you're a booktube fan, you will no doubt already be subscribed to Sanne! I always enjoy her videos and, again, they're concise so you can watch them on the go and in between jobs. Perfect! Her Travel Box videos will tap into your wanderlust, her Wreck This Journal video will make you want to get creative and her vlogging tips will make you want to pick up your camera and get going.
Jason and I are kindred spirits. One day we shall meet, and dance to really good music and channel early 00's style. Until then, we will but dream and be transatlantic friends. Jason has some pretty wonderful videos for when you need a little boost, or five quiet minutes away from the things you're actually meant to be doing. I'm particularly enjoying the installments of his bookshelf tour and his Journal series. J also discusses CanLit on the channel, Hello Hemlock so you should definitely go and check that out too. Oh, and he also has great hair.
Anybody that ends a video with 'suck a bag of dicks' is a friend of mine. Conincidentally, Jessica is a friend of mine. Foolish Oats is the perfect channel for those quiet moments where you want to engage in interesting and honest discussion. I particularly enjoyed 'How To Read Together' and 'Self: 2013'. This lady also discusses CanLit at Hello Hemlock, so there's yet another reason to have a gander!
I love Amy's voice. It's so calming. When I'm not being weird and commenting on INTERNET PPLZ voices, I also enjoy Amy's videos in general. I really enjoyed Amy's video on her placement, because I'm particularly nosey when it comes to places and spaces that I haven't explored before. She's also a bit of a pro when it comes to tags, and she has a pretty beautiful Alice in Wonderland collection! You should definitely check out her channel.
I really enjoy Katie's channel, because she reads some pretty interesting classics, and YA fiction. She's also really laid back in her videos which makes for an easy watch. Whilst she has only been booktubing for under a year, she's managed to get involved with a nice amount of tags that are particularly good to watch on those days where your brain can't fathom much else! I particularly enjoyed 'The Book Shuffle Tag', 'The Zombie Apocolypse Tag' and 'My Childhood Books'.
Leena's channel was probably the first booktube channel that I subscribed to, way back when. Whilst her book videos did occupy a different channel for a little while, they're now back on her main channel. Hurrah! 'Moving To London', 'I THINK YOU'D LIKE' and 'I DON'T KNOW' are all pretty great.
I've only very recently subscribed to Madison's videos but I am steadily working my way through them. The go-to channel for those of you with a penchant for Kiwi accents and / or classics! You should definitely watch 'Boyfriend Girlfriend Book Recommendations', 'Favourite Classics' and the 'Gods of Olympus Tag'.
Ben is super awesome. You cannot watch his videos without embracing his enthusiasm for books. Whilst our reading tastes differ, I always watch his videos because he's bloody lovely and his videos are always informative. If you're a fan of fantasy, head here! Just make sure you don't have your volume too loud, or a raging hangover ;) Go and watch 'My Booktubing Story' and 'Infinite Book Challenge'.
Like Ariel, I love a good discussion so her channel is the place I go when I want to theorise literature and the act of reading. Good places to start include 'Separating The Art From The Artist', the 'Reading in School' series and '7 Authors I Haven't Read Yet'. Ariel's videos are also really great if you enjoy brick walls...
Jesse's enthusiasm is infectious, and I'd be surprised if you could do the 40 Facial Expressions tag better than him! He's someone that will genuinely have ALL THE FEELS expressed on his face at one time over books, or movie trailers, and I think that's great. I adored his Fictional Bucket List tag, and have been writing my very own in my notebook ever since!
Jean is your go-to booktuber if you're interested in classical literature or the works of Terry Pratchett, or simply want to know more about them. I particularly enjoyed 'Books Are Best Accompanied By Poetry' and 'They Are Everywhere'. Jean also has a bloody lovely voice.
Alexandra and I often tweet one another when I have bought myself some more books so I had to include her channel! I love listening to her talk about books, in both English and French...even though I'm only fluent in one of those languages. Go and watch 'Books To Read Before 2014', 'Reading Classics' and the 'Harry Potter Tag'.
Have I left any of your favourites out? Let me know in the comments because I'm always on the search for new ones to subscribe to! I'm off to enjoy my second day in London! Eep! ♥
