Blog it Out: Vlogging and Youtube

Vlogging and Youtube

After five years of blogging here, we decided back in August 2015 that we would start posting more regularly on our Youtube Channel. If you haven’t subscribed already, you can do that here. When you click on the link, you’ll find a little subscribe button on the right side. Don’t worry! It’s completely FREE! We post two NEW videos every week! By clicking on the videos below, you’ll be able to watch all our videos automatically on a playlist.

There’s a large community of YouTubers who talk on video about their favorite books. These BookTubers, as they dub themselves read a variety of books, but the majority of them are YA readers. There isn’t too many out there that focus on Romance and Urban Fantasy, so we hoped to bring more of our favorite books and authors to Youtube ourselves!

We started off with our first feature called Weekend Highlights (now changed to simply read: Review + Giveaway) where every Saturday one of us will feature a book we read and loved that week. Sometimes it’s the hottest new release. Other times it’s an older release we think deserves some extra attention. You’ll have to check back every Saturday for your chance to win the book (or one of the other books in the series).

 

 

At the end of the month, each of us do a Wrap Up featuring some of the standout books we’ve read that month. We tend to feature both older titles and upcoming releases as we are often reading ARCs in advance. Then, we also share what books we’re looking forward to reading for the next month! In bookish terms, it’s basically a glimpse into our TBR!

 

This is also the time where we announce our next Book Club read and update readers on how the last book club reading went. These brief videos will give you a chance to join in at any time during the month! To join our monthly book club, you have to be a member of Goodreads, but everyone is welcome of course!

 

 

And lastly, and probably the most different for us, is our Lifestyle videos. Every Wednesday one of us will share our other hobbies other than reading with you. This includes everything from Planning, Beauty, Fitness and even some DIY videos as well. These videos are our chance to show a little more about ourselves while having some fun, so please do check them out. There’s something for everyone there!

 

On occasion, we’ve been known to post video interviews with authors in the past so don’t be surprised if we suddenly post one! So again, please subscribe to our Channel so you don’t miss a thing. We hope you love our videos as much as we love making them!

Annie

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

I’ve watched a half-dozen of your vlog posts and I’ve enjoyed the new medium that allows me to really experience your enthusiasm and feelings about what you are discussing. Never really thought I’d enjoy it as much, but I do. You ladies do a good job putting together your video posts. 🙂

I’ve thought about doing audio podcasts for reviews since I don’t feel quite up to a video yet. Maybe you could share an opinion on that or a how to for one of your blog outs.

Audio podcasts are great! And I think you can do that for more than just reviews if you have someone else who’d like to it with you! Maybe a discussion or something like that 🙂 So happy to hear you’ve been watching the vids 😀

LOL, Miki. That’s what editing is for! We’re working on putting together a blooper reel so you can see all the mistakes that don’t make it into the videos. I’m sure there are plenty of funny and embarrassing ones.

I look forward to the YT videos UTC produces every week! It’s so nice to watch all UTC members on YT.

Someone pointed out podcasts. So: podcast versus YT?

Podcasts are another great way to share your opinions on books and other topics. But since we do live in different countries and states, YouTube allows us to upload from where ever we are. We also like the visual aspect as we think it helps connect with readers more.
