Title: Doing It
Author: Hannah Witton
Genre: Non-Fiction, Sex, Relationships
Publication Date: 6th April 2017
Publisher: Wren and Rook
Summary: Sexting. Virginity. Consent. The Big O … Let’s face it, doing it can be tricksy. I don’t know anyone (including myself) who has sex all figured out. So I’ve written a book full of honest, hilarious (and sometimes awkward) anecdotes, confessions and revelations. And because none of us have all the answers, I’ve invited some friends and fellow YouTubers to talk about their sexuality, too.
We talk about doing it safely. Doing it joyfully. Doing it when you’re ready. Not doing it. Basically, doing it the way you want, when you want. So. Let’s do this …

I started watching Hannah Witton on YouTube just over six months ago and she’s one of about four YouTubers I watch. I find her content really fun and interesting as well as educational – something which I haven’t usually found before! It’s kind of important to note here that I don’t usually watch many YouTubers – I’m certain there are many engaging and educational people but I just haven’t watched and expanded my knowledge of them! I’ve read her book, Doing It!, and watched her live show so this post is kind of a two in one review; I think it will be good to review them in relation to each other! Continue reading
I think what enhanced my obsession with books was my addiction to YouTube. I discovered the magical world of YouTube pretty late in my life (I think I was about 19) and suddenly became obsessed with people talking about books on there! There are so many incredible ‘BookTubers’ who host giveaways, record hauls, reviews and anything else you can image in front of a camera. Watching BookTuber’s is a pass time which allows me to relax but still think about novels and get me excited to read. After all, we all want to be excited to read!
Title: All I Know Now
Author: Carrie Hope Fletcher
Genre: YA, YouTube, Wonderings, Autobiography, Self Help.
Publisher: Little Brown
Publication Date: 23rd April 2015
Summery : We all know that growing up is hard to do, and sometimes the only thing that makes it better are the reassuring words of someone who has walked that bumpy road just a few steps ahead of you and somehow ended up as a fully-functioning adult. Carrie Hope Fletcher is that person. Thanks to her phenomenally popular YouTube videos, Carrie has become an ‘honorary big sister’ to hundreds of thousands of young people who turn to her for advice, friendship and, most of all, the knowledge that things will get better.
I’ve never hidden the fact that I don’t have a great deal of respect for ridiculously famous YouTubers. Yes I watch YouTube and I even watch videos made by some of those that I don’t like admittedly. But I rarely choose to spend my money on their over-priced, irrelevant-to-career (can you call YouTube a career really?) merchandise. This means that all these books that are suddenly being released by YouTubers will most definitely not be making their way on to my shelf any time soon. Continue reading

If you didn’t know, BookTubeAThon is a week-long (August 3rd to August 9th) reading marathon for readers to basically read as much as they possibly can in that week (there’s a lot of ‘reads’ in that sentence.) There are different challenges every year to do with what you will read, but the choices of books are ultimately down to you! There is far more information about BookTubeAThon HERE that you can check out! Continue reading
