It’s Tuesday once again, and you know what that means: Top 5 Tuesday! Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm . This week’s theme is Top 5 Favorite Booktube Channels.
I have to admit, I don’t watch a lot of Booktube anymore. When I first discovered it two years ago, I consumed and subscribed to every Booktuber I could find. I even tried to do it for awhile, until I decided the medium wasn’t for me. But I’ve fallen out of watching lately and don’t really have favorites. But, here are 5 that I really liked.
GabsAboutBooks was delightfully enthusiastic and sincere. I liked the books she chose and the way she talked about them. She got me to try the Raven Cycle and while, at the time at least, it wasn’t for me, I loved the way she reviewed them.
RememberedReads always has a very soothing quality about her. I like the way she talks about her books and the diversity of books she chooses. She introduced me to the graphic novel, Velvet, which I loved, and a lot of other books that I still haven’t gotten around to reading yet.
Royaevereads seems to have taken down all her videos, which is sad. I have to admit, I loved her accent, but I also liked the intellectual way she talked about books and her excitement when she discovered a new read she loved. I also liked when she didn’t like the book, too.
ReadbyLiv seems to be on hiatus (or maybe she’s stopped posting), but her bubbly enthusiasm gave me a lot of joy.
ProblemsofABookNerd is my go-to if I need a LGBTQA+ rec. I love her dedication and focus on queer themes.
And, that’s my list.
Who are some of your favorite Booktubers? Give me some recs and I’ll check them out!
