This week’s Top Ten Tuesday (created by The Broke and the Bookish) is all about bookish people you should follow on social media. I love following bookish people on Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, YouTube, etc., so I’m excited to share some of my favorite with you! I couldn’t decide which way I wanted to go for this post, so I ended up splitting it in half (kind of); I’m doing my six favorite BookTubers (YouTubers who talk about books) and four favorite authors that I love following on social media.
Here are the six bloggers and vloggers I think you should follow (and links to everywhere you should follow them):
- Regan from PeruseProject. Regan is the only BookTuber who’s videos I always watch immediately, regardless of the topic. I absolutely love them! Her taste in books is similar to mine, and I’ve found quite a few of my recent favorites from her channel. I really like that her videos are straightforward and not over the top. And she seems like a really awesome person. You should totally follow her main YouTube channel, her vlog, her Twitter, and her Instagram. Whew, that was a lot of things.
- Samantha from Thoughts on Tomes. Sam is just one of those people I totally want to be friends with. I just love the way she talks about books, and how honest she is in her reviews. Plus, she usually has really awesome makeup and hair. You can follow her YouTube channel, Instagram, and Twitter.
- Riley from Riley Marie. Riley is seriously one of the most adorable BookTubers ever! She’s fun to listen to, and she has such as sweet personality. I also like that her videos are not gimmicky at all, and she reads a lot of cool books. Follow her on YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter.
- Whitney from WhittyNovels. Whitney is always really funny and she makes a variety of videos, which I like (she’s big on journaling, too). She always seems like she’s having a lot of fun making her videos, which makes them fun to watch. She’s also really big on Twitter, so if you like her videos, you should definitely follow her there, too. You can follow Whitney on YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter.
- Lala from BooksandLala. I love Lala’s channel because she not only posts a ton of reviews, book tags, etc., but she has a whole monthly book news segment all about new releases, movie adaptations, etc. It’s really cool! Plus, she reads more books than I could ever hope to read. Follow her on YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter.
- Hailey from Hails Hearts NYC. Again, Hailey and her videos are both super cute! I love following her channel because she talks about contemporary reads as well as classics, which is awesome. Check out her YouTube channel, Instagram, and Twitter.
And here are the authors you should follow on social media (I just linked back to their Twitter and Instagram accounts, because that’s how I follow them for the most part, but you can probably find them elsewhere on the internet).
- Neil Gaiman. As far as I know, he’s one of the most popular authors on Twitter. Even more so than Stephen King. So, obviously, you should follow him. Check out his Twitter and Instagram.
- Victoria/V. E. Schwab. I love V. E. Schwab! If we could be best friends, that would totally make my life. I love her books, but I also love her rants about deadlines and writing and her Instagram pictures, which are totally writer goals. You need to follow her: Twitter, Instagram.
- Pierce Brown. If you’re a fan, you need to be following his Twitter for book updates, and whether you’re a fan or not, you need to follow his Instagram because he posts some seriously amazing shots. Click here to do both: Twitter, Instagram.
- J. K. Rowling. If you’re not following her on Twitter, you must not have Twitter. And if that’s the case, it’s worth getting an account just so you can follow the Harry Potter author and amazing Queen of Sass. DO IT. She’s also on Instagram.
