Lucy Turns Pages: Booktube Roundup 1

Booktube Roundup 1

Hello! So I started making book videos on YouTube towards the end of last year and I wanted to start sharing them over here on my blog. Most of my bookish content is now on YouTube and I'm really enjoying making videos about books. I have some exciting new content coming soon. Some of the videos I will be sharing in these posts are old videos and the quality has since massively improved so please bear that in mind if you watch the older videos! 

The first video I shared was my booktube newbie tag video, a staple video on YouTube where people that are new to making book videos say hello and talk about what kind of videos they would like to make. This video is probably the worst in terms of picture quality but possibly the best in terms of views which I find quite funny!

I then made a video talking about the best books that I read in 2020. I love this video because I talk about some great new reads that I discovered and I love talking about books I love! I then posted an opposite kind of video where I spoke about books that disappointed me in 2020. So far in 2021 I have had a lot of these unfortunately!

My next video was a reading vlog where I started The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson, the first book in the Mistborn series which I ended up really enjoying and I would highly recommend if you want to read some adult fantasy. 

Next up I made a video about 21 books I wanted to read in 2021! I'm really interested in going back to this video to see how many of the books I've read so far this year! Then we have the traditional bookshelf scavenger hunt video where I looked for books on my bookshelves that suited prompts given to me by people online! I like these types of videos because you get to talk about books you might not necessarily talk about in other videos.

I also created an original tag during this month which was where I matched books to some popular Christmas songs. If you're looking for content to create around Christmas (or you just like Christmas content) please feel free to check it out.

That's all for my first booktube roundup! If you'd like to watch all of my videos, here is my video page. Do you make book videos or watch them? I'd love to know.
