Weekend Review: Books[tube] & Tea


I’ve been going back and forth in my mind about whether or not I wanted to create a youtube channel. Then, I saw the post, Fuelled By Fiction Comes to Booktube, and I just decided to go for it. Check out my introduction video above. really brief. It’s only about three and a half minutes long. I talk about some of current reads, why I’m still a tea newbie after 8 years of drinking tea, and Castiel Tea from Adagio.

This was kind of a difficult process! Talking at a computer was a strange experience, and I kept losing my train of thought. I ended up having to type up a script in notepad otherwise this would have been a video full of “uuuuum” and exasperated sighs. Youtubers make this look easy!

I’d love it if you would visit and subscribe to the Books & Tea Youtube Channel. There is only one video up right now, but the goal is to get a video up every other week on various bookish and tea related topics.

Christmas Is In The Air

Actually, that’s just the smell of Christmas Cookies! And if you noticed my tweets last week, you know I almost wanted to rage quit baking:

It dawned on me that I never shared with you the finished product. At some point, I gave up on spooning on the coconut and caramel topping, which is why there are a handful of nude cookies. Behold!

Homemade Girl Scout Samoa CookiesMy mom took these in to work, and they were a hit. Several people asked for the recipe for these hellbeast. Better them than I, I say!

Tell me bookworms, do you have a booktube youtube channel? I’d love to check it out, so leave a link for me in the comments. Also, have you done any holiday baking yet?
