Heyy folks! How are you doing? Hope you’re staying safe and keeping well and happy. 🙂
I’m starting this new series on my blog where I talk about the videos I post to my BookTube channel because I feel like you guys should also know what I’m doing in life when I’m not blogging. And this even more so when BookTube is such a huge part of my life and a huge part of who I am right now.

So without any further ado, let’s dive right in and let me share with you all the videos that I uploaded to my YouTube channel in February 2021.
P.S. This will be a weekly thing from now on. I’ll upload a weekly roundup of the videos every Sunday.
#1 – Coffee Talk – Episode 7: Current Reads & Black Author Recommendations
Date Posted: 2 February, 2021
Coffee Talk is a series on my channel where the videos are chatty and I share my thoughts on certain topics that I think are relevant and which I have strong thoughts about. Since February was (is) Black History Month, I spoke about black authors that I have read and loved. I know there are many more I have yet to read, discover even, but this is a start. Do go check it out and let me know what you think.

#2 – January 2021 Wrap Up
Date Posted: 4 February, 2021
I do a reading wrap up for every month where I talk about the books I’ve read in the month. This one was for January and although the month was disappointing life-wise, I can’t really complain, because I did have some AMAZING reads on there.

#3 – The Chocolate Book Tag
Date Posted: 9 February, 2021
I went overboard with the cheesy here but tags are easy to do ya. 😛 I say ‘cheesy’ because I posted this on what the world calls ‘Chocolate Day’, in the run up to Valentine’s Day. I LOLed so hard at myself when I got this idea. XD

#4 – The Ember Quartet Vlog – Part 1
Date Posted: 11 February, 2021
Oh boy! The vlogs for my favorite series of all time, Sabaa Tahir’s Ember Quartet, had me crying left, right, center, up, down, and sideways! The first part had me crying and fawning at the first two books in the series: An Ember in the Ashes and A Torch Against the Night .

#5 – First Book Haul of 2021 + Surprise Unboxing + Collaboration
Date Posted: 13 February, 2021
This was my first ever unboxing and I had so much fun doing it! What was more, I did this collaboration, thanks to Random Thought Bullets, with some amazing BookTubers and there were books from that collab as well. That collab video went up on the 28th of February.

#6 – Romance Book Recommendations: Valentine’s Day Special
Date Posted: 14 February, 2021
I couldn’t not do this! Might seem cheesier than the chocolate day thing, but it’s okay. I’ve never done this recommendation video before. So there I was, trying to make a video about books with romances that melted me. And I must say, I’m pretty proud of this video!

#7 – The Ember Quartet Vlog – Part 2
Date Posted: 16 February, 2021
This was the second of my Ember in the Ashes vlogs and in this one, you’ll see me reading the third in the series, A Reaper at the Gates and then the fourth one, A Sky Beyond the Storm. It KILLED me. I ugly cried like an absolute baby because Sabaa Tahir has got no chill. But I love her and will take no brickbats against her!

#8 – 3 Years on BookTube – My Third BookTube Anniversary
Date Posted: 18 February, 2021
Aaaaaaahhh! I had originally wanted to do a blog post on this as well, but February was such a shit month that I didn’t get to doing it! But I celebrated 3 years of being on BookTube on February 18th and made a reflections kind of video for it where I spoke of my journey so far and my plans for the future.

#9 – Get Ready With Me – Episode 1
Date Posted: 20 February, 2021
This was such a random video that I thought twice, thrice, four times before I went ahead with it. I needed to film another video and I thought, “Why not turn this getting ready process into a video as well?” And I did! It didn’t reach a lot of people, but okay. I kinda enjoyed this one and will make it a series. Not everything will be a hit!

#10 – The Self-Aware Reader Tag
Date Posted: 23 February, 2021
I was tagged to do this by a fellow BookTuber, Jyotsna’s Bookscapades. I’ll probably do this tag on here as well. Do let me know if you’d like to read the article and I’ll make sure to put it up soon. 🙂

#11 – Book Recommendations for Beginners
Date Posted: 25 February, 2021
In 3 years of being on BookTube, I’d never done a books for beginners video before! And I thought it was about time that I did one. Do let me know if you’d like to see a blog post for this. I’ll likely do it either way, but I’ll feel better if I know I’m doing something you like. 🙂

#12 – March 2021 TBR: International Women’s Day Special
Date Posted: 27 February, 2021
2 months done already! Where did the time go, man? And 2021 was supposed to be better than the shit dumpster fire that was 2020. But it’s so much worse, good Lord!
Anyway, I’ve put out my March TBR (to be read) on video (the blog post will go up soon) and I’ve made an announcement as well. #DramaQueenAThon is back from March 8 to March 14! Yay!

#13 – Shoutout Sunday – Episode 1
Date Posted: 28 February, 2021
Another new series that I’ve started on my channel where on the last Sunday of every month, I share 5 digital creators who I absolutely love. They don’t have to be create just book-related content. Every kind of content that inspires me will find its way on to these videos.
