Writing About Books vs. Talking About Books

I have been thinking for a while about how I write blogposts for this bookblog. More and more I am starting to think that I am better at getting my thoughts on a book across when I talk to someone than when I write them down. Sometimes I really have to force myself to write a review and that lessens my excitement for it. For a really long while I have enjoyed watching videos about books on youtube. I have always loved filming, but I was always the person behind the camera, hardly ever in front of it. At the beginning of this year I finally convinced myself to start a booktube channel myself. It was very awkward talking to the camera to make my first video, but I am starting to become more and more comfortable with it. I am not sure what will happen to this blog. From time to time I might still post a written review of a book, but I do think that I am going to focus on making videos. Perhaps I will also post them here. If you would like to check out my channel it is called: B reads Books.

Here is my latest video. It is by no means perfect, but I am pretty proud of myself for doing this and I am sure I will only continue to get better.


  1. I love your Booktube Channel! You're such a natural too! :D

    1. Aww, thanks, you're too nice :D

  2. I think it makes sense for you to cross to booktube if you know that it is working out better for you and it is something you enjoy a lot more as well. I know my booktube is smaller than my blog, and I don't quite feel ready to let go of my blog yet. I'm not sure which I want to do, but it is getting harder and harder to maintain both and my bookstagram! I'm going to have to think over this some more.
