How Booktube and Bookstagram Made Me Love Reading Again
I started to see books as not something that is a required reading from class that I got so tired of reading but as something that can be fun to review and give my opinions on how I feel about the books I read.
I started my videos in April of this year, at the most hectic time to start for a Creative Writing Major. It was almost finals and I had to do a paper, rewrite a story, and a couple of portfolios. Needless to say I actually finished them all. I think the main reason I started doing Booktube is because it gave something else to besides write continuously.
When I took an interest in booktube I realized I need to read new books. My first book that I bought for the year was Passenger by Alexandra Braken. Then I bought a few more over the summer as I became more interested. Outlander was introduced to me and I fell in love with the red-headed Scottish Jamie Fraser. So far I have only done about almost a dozen videos, and I still love working on new ones.
When it came to Instagram, I used to document interesting things in my life like school. This was meant for family members to see what was going as I had my college adventure. Recently, I have been more involved with bookstagram to help show the love that I have had for books ever since I was a little girl. I joined one of the monthly themes and I been loving it ever since. I have found as a interesting to document not only the book I'm reading, but the books on my shelves that have not been touched just yet.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post. I just wrote this in one sitting session and that is the first time that has happened.
