Features/Challenges

**On hiatus** 
What: A monthly post featuring a book tuber!
When: One Thursday every month!
Why: There are so many book tubers on YouTube and I thought it would be nice to highlight them on the blog! After all, book tubers are becoming increasingly more popular and with so many of them out there, it's hard to decide which ones to watch! I'll talk about many favorite tubers and give you a chance to watch their videos!
BOOK TUBERS:

What: A weekly feature about old books that I've read and I think you should too!
When: Every Monday!
Why: With so many books coming out each year, everyone wants to get their hands on the newest book! I for one love the old books I've read as well. I wanted to help bring more attention to those books and that is where this feature was introduced. There will include old Young Adult books, Middle Grade books, and even classics! This feature focuses ONLY on YA and Middle Grade books.

Why: I have so many books on my shelves that need to be read so this is the perfect way to do it!

Why: I wanted to talk and educate more people about my culture, my first country, and so much more
