My BookTube channel | LisReads

I have some really nice news to share with you guys. I have made a YouTube channel, I must say BookTube.. because the main subject of the channel is books. As you may now I have a Dutch bookblog and I also have a YouTube account for that bookblog, but it is in Dutch.. that is a major restriction when you want to be involved in the BookTube community. So the idea popped in to my head to make an Englis BookTube channel, an hour after that my channel was up & running.

LisReads is the name of my channel. I will be making bookreviews, hauls, tags, wrap-up’s, TBR’s and more. I already posted two video’s and another one will be up tomorrow. And I already love it, I have gotten some really nice comments and I already have 48 subscribers in just three days, so I must say I’m a bit proud and happy and just exited to make a lot of video’s.

You can find my channel on http://youtube.com/lisreads I have made a new Twitter account http://www.twitter.com/lisreads and also a new Tumblr http://www.lisreads.tumblr.com The Tumblr page is mostly just to support the YouTube channel, I will post all my video’s on there.. and also I will blog about bookish things, probably things that I don’t find big enough to put in a video.

Time for a new update.. I still haven’t finished a book jet. The book I’m reading - Beautiful Darkness - has 528 pages so it’s a very big book to read. Probably not the best choice for this readathon. I’m liking the book more and more but it’s a really slow read. I also fell asleep so I missed a lot of reading hours. I just couldn’t keep my eyes open. I hope I can finish Beautiful Darkness before the end of the Read-A-Thon and if not well it doesn’t really matter, I had lots of fun with this challenge. Twitter was and is full of it and it’s nice to see how big the book blogging/tubing/reading community really is.

How is the Read-A-Thon going so far? Well I didn’t read that much jet. I got really distracted in the first hours. The book that I’m reading - Beautiful Darkness - is nice but not very interesting. So far it is a really slow read and I’m just not as excited about is as I thought I would be. I keep hoping that there will be a moment when I get totally sucked in to the book. And it better be soon, otherwise I will be starting another book. I’m taking a break right now, it’s dinner time and I really need to eat something to get some energy and keep me going. 
I will keep you posted!

Introductory Questionnaire

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?

The Netherlands! 

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?

I think Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shephard. Because I’m obsessed with the TV series so I’m really looking forward to read the book. 

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

I bought some donuts for tonight. Never eat those because they are so bad, but today I’m making an exception. 

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!

Well I’m Lisanne, a 17-year-old Dutch girl. I love to blog, I blog on www.booksandkisses.nl about books and I also have a beautyblog www.beautyblossom.nl Besides that, I’m studying journalism and I would love to work at a magazine later. 

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?

This is my first! I’m most looking forward to the end actually. I hope to feel fully satisfied by reading a lot. I really hope I can keep up.

Tomorrow I will be attending the Dewey 24h read-a-thon for the first time. I am really excited! It is a big challenge for me because normally I read one or two hours a day. I can already say that I’m not going to stay awake for 24 hours. I just can’t take that long without sleeping. I hope I can finish one book completely. And that book will be Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, part 2 in the Caster Chronicles series. I will make updates about the challenge here on tumblr and mostly on my Twitter account: http://www.twitter.com/beautyblossomnl
