30 BookTubers You Need To Watch

30 BookTubers You Need To Watch

30 BookTubers You Need To Watch

Video Content for Book Lovers


As you might know, I've been part of BookTube/AuthorTube for years now. In fact, I uploaded my very first video to my channel over 13 years ago! In recent years I use my YouTube mainly to post book reviews for the books I've read. 


One of the reasons I love video as a medium for sharing my reviews, and discussing topics, is that it gives a more personal feel for both the content and the person creating it. A lot of the time you get to know the person better... or at least feel like you know them better. 


As well as creating video content of my own, I also like to watch the video content put out by others. Not only is it enjoyable but it also gives me inspiration for new ideas I can adapt for myself in the future too. 


Below you can find a list of 30 BookTubers you should check out and a brief description of the sorts of video content they post. I've also picked a video for each that I feel gives a good idea of the sort of content they post to their channel. 


The following channels are listed in no particular order.

Featured video:

Why makes the list: As an Indian BookTuber a lot of her content and the books she reads have an Indian/Asian focus e.g. "Books by Indian Authors", "The Indian Book Tag", "Asian Readathon TBR". She does also include other more general content too though.

BookTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZHa51socGH3Olo5Ke5hgyg
