15+ Teenage Bookish Influencers You Should Follow Immediately (ft. Book Bloggers, Booktubers and Lots of Links)

So if you all didn’t know, I’m Taasia and I’m a teen book blogger who loves boosting teen voices!

And as a teen book blogger, I love it when I can find and connect with fellow teen book influencers.

I, like the majority of people in the community, read YA. I’ve seen that in an area of reading and publishing that is meant to be targeted at teens, that teens are so often left out of conversations, with many adults taking up spots for teen influencers.

We see this in more and more YA books being catered for older teens and less books being catered towards younger teens. We see this in how the primary influencers around YA are adults, especially since they are financially independent and just independent in a lot of other ways, leaving teens, who are dependent on their parents/guardians, heavily disadvantaged. We also see this, in how, in my opinion, adults are increasingly taking up spots that should be for teens.

Disclaimer: I love so many adult bookish influencers, but I’m really seeing teens being pushed out of this space when they really shouldn’t be. IMO, this gap between adult and teens should be a lot more even and less obvious. Does that make sense?

Anyway. After seeing this gap between teens and adults in the community, I decided to create a teenage bookish influencer round-up as a post on my blog! I put out a call on my Twitter for any teenage bookish influencers (across any and all forms of social media) to reply to my Tweet by the end of April. In my mind, teens are people aged 13-19 years old.

I am aware that my blog is very small, and that this may not get a lot of views. But I really want to boost the voices of my fellow teen bookish influencers, and I know that my newbie self would have really appreciated seeing this round-up of some really amazing teen bookish influencers.

I may do this again in a few months or so, and make this a series (or some sort of feature spotlighting teens because this was exhausting and took me way too long to post). Who knows?

In no particular order, here are 15+ teenage bookish influencers (more specifically, book bloggers and booktubers, in no particular order) that you should all follow now, if you haven’t already!

Ilsa @ A Whisper Of Ink

Ilsa is a teen book blogger and tweeter who talks pre-dominantly talks about YA books. She posts a mix of reviews, discussions, lists and recaps. She produces the most thoughtful and unique content, and is so smart and eloquent?? She’s currently on hiatus for exams (which I should technically be on too but here we are) but she has so much great content for you to catch up on while she’s away! She has the most beautiful watercolour aesthetic and is such a lovely person.

Dani @ Metamorph Reader

Dani is a book blogger, tweeter and booktuber under her common handle, “Metamorph Reader.” She posts blog tours, reviews, and lists. She also is very active in boosting Latinx voices, and is the co-host of the Latinx Book Club! I am in LOVE with the colours of her blog (especially that blog header, omg) and I love her work in boosting Latinx voices, which is so, so needed.

Caitlin @ Caitlin Athlea

Screen Shot 2019-05-06 at 1.00.09 AM.png

Caitlin is a book blogger and tweeter who blogs about YA, Middle Grade and Adult Books. I’m in love with her marble aesthetic, and she’s so candid and such an angel. She posts tags, lists, reviews, recommendations, wrap ups, TBRs and more! Also, Southeast Asian blogger solidarity, since she lives in the Philippines, which is awesome! She’s incredibly thoughtful and relatable, and so so lovely.

Aline @ Fully Booked

Aline is a teen book blogger and bookstagrammer. On her blog, she has a variety of great posts. She has super fun and creative lists, and incredibly eloquent and important discussion posts. Her aesthetic is GORGEOUS, with her trademark pink, and she has an exquisite bookstagram feed! Aline is also one of the most supportive and sweet people in the community, and probably one of my closest friends in the whole community. I’m trying hard to really not be biased here, but I love her so much.

Elise @ The Bookish Actress

Screen Shot 2019-05-05 at 4.02.19 PM.png

Elise is a teen book blogger, Goodreads reviewer and Tweeter. Her blog probably posts the most varied content out of everyone I follow: she has books posts (with a mix of reviews, discussions, lists, how-tos, etc.) music posts, monthly recaps and lifestyle posts. She is one of the top Goodreads reviewers in the U.S, and is one of the most eloquent reviewers I follow. She is so real, sweet and honest. She has the best music taste, and she has introduced me to some of my favourite albums of all time. She’s super big on Goodreads, so I’d be surprised if you all aren’t already following her.

Cailin @ Rose Petal Pages

rose petal pages

Cailin is a book blogger who focuses on YA books. I would include aspects such as being a Tweeter or Bookstagrammer, but Cailin is one of those bloggers with every single social media out there. She has such an EXQUISITE and professional blog design, and has such interesting posts – from discussions, to lists, to wrap-ups and more, all embellished with her signature pink rose petals, Cailin is a blogger I’m surprised EVERYONE hasn’t followed yet. She’s just such a sweetheart and her stanning of the Empirium Trilogy makes me love it even more. I’m seriously so excited for Kingsbane now.

Julianna @ Paper Blots

trial

Ju is a book blogger, bookstagrammer, tweeter, reviewer etc. (she has so many social media links, that dedication though) who focuses on YA books. She has loads of different types of posts – from reviews to lists to cover spotlights and more, Ju is probably one of the funniest bloggers I follow. She has such fun and silly posts which never fail to bring a smile on my face, and is truly such a sweetheart. Her cover showcases of POCs make me so happy. Seriously, all my uwus.

Friends, I wrote a long-as-heck caption for this photo already but my phone died so I guess Instagram just *had* to delete it. Seriously, I was close to the maximum character limit. 😭 Anyways… what are you all ashamed of? I’m ashamed of the fact that I haven’t freaking read this book yet (and also the fact that my dusty self made this mistake) because this actually published half a month ago and I didn’t read it on time!! Nice👌🏼(I am so sorry Scholastic please don’t hate me) I was supposed to buddy read it with @foreverandeverly_ but that didn’t work out because… I didn’t read it. I used to be on the reading grind for the first months and then I fell into a reading slump???? By the way, I accidentally took two pictures of this sooo I will be posting another one w/ my thoughts after I read it!! . Exams are in three weeks and I want to SOB multiple times. I’m terrified because I haven’t started reviewing yet and I feel like I’ve blanked on the majority of my classes. Did the past year even happen?? Apparently, the answer is yes and I’m not a freaking fan. I have four exams I’m going to be taking and I don’t think I’ve retained a large majority of it. PLEase pray for me ok guys. . Also, I want to clarify that this rainbow stack isn’t meant for Pride Month at all— especially because not all of the books within are lgbtq+. I stg when I have enough gay books to make a rainbow, I will do it and I will use That rainbow for all of my photos instead. But for now, I’ll have to unfortunately use this rainbow because I’m so broke. I actually took all of my photos w/ this shelf in early May but never posted any of them,, I think I’m going to have a majority of my photos w/ a rainbow stack now as my theme? I don’t even know what I’m doing with bookstagram anymore. . #books #bookstagram #prettybooks #prettybookpics #bookstagrampic #aestheticbooks #blogger #cutebooks #authors #bookishfeatures #bookfeature #booksofig #booksbooksbooks #ilovebooks #bookaesthetic #bookobsessed #flatlaynation #flatlay #bookphotography

Yannes @ Infinite Bookish

Screen Shot 2019-06-05 at 2.19.47 PM.png

Yannes is a teen Booktuber, Tweeter and Instagrammer. On her Booktube Channel, she has such a wide variety of content – from the more ‘typical’ Booktube content (which I 100% love!) such as wrap ups, tags, reviews, hauls to vlogs and discussions. I particularly love that her channel has such an international focus, as she is a Hong Kong Booktuber (ya girl used to live in Hong Kong) and she regularly talks about being an international Booktuber and also has content such as language challenges, which I find to be awesome! She is incredibly eloquent and confident, and I really appreciate that she is a teen Booktuber, which I find is rarely represented on Booktube.

Evi is a book blogger, Tweeter and bookstagrammer. On her blog, she produces content on books, music, movies and TV shows, so be sure to check her blog out if you love all these things in particular!

I ADORE her graphics (that soft purple is absolutely exquisite) which adds to the welcoming atmosphere of her blog. She is looking to ease back into blogging, so please go and support her for when she does so!

Laura @ Laura Herondale

Laura is a teen book blogger and Tweeter who mostly reads a variety of genres from YA. She has only been blogging for a few months, but she’s already hit 100 followers, which is absolutely insane. She has lots of different posts – from tags to Top Ten Tuesday to hauls to lists to reviews, there’s plenty of posts to read! Laura is probably one of my best friends in the community, and is so thoughtful, sweet and so eloquent. I can’t wait for her to move to Singapore so we can hang out in real life! I can’t wait. She is currently on hiatus, but that means you have lots of time to catch up on her existing posts.

Marie is a teen book blogger and Tweeter. Her blog is incredibly soothing and calming at first glance, which I adore! Her blog has a wide variety of posts, such as wrap ups, TBRs, book talks, bookish lists/memes and discussions galore! I don’t know why, but I also really like her currently reading sidebar. Something about those images lined up side by side just makes me so happy. She started blogging this year, so please go support and boost her! (Just boost and support everyone!).

Lais @ The Bookish Skies

Screen Shot 2019-05-09 at 5.31.34 PM.png

Last but not least, we have Lais! Lais is a teen blogger and Tweeter who mostly talks about YA books. I love how she has such a great mix of posts – from music, books, lifestyle, and discussions of all the things. And I don’t mean that in a bad way! In fact, I think my favourite posts of hers are her discussions. They’re just so absolutely enrapturing and fascinating and wow I have so much love for them?? She leaves the most thoughtful and intelligent comments, and she is such a lovely soul. She’s also a South American (more specifically, she resides in Brazil) book blogger, which is so rare to see in the community. Also, I ADORE her minimal aesthetic? I’m just obsessed.
