5 YouTube Books You Need To Read

Nowadays, YouTube is a phenomen and so are YouTubers of many kinds. Such a huge number of topics is being covered on the platform every day, from fashion and lifestyle to challenges and computer games.

The trend of youtubers writing their own books geniunely took up in the past year, since a lot of internet famous people have books published by now. You don’t even have to be neccessarily a fan of YouTube to like the publication, because there are multiple genres to choose from. Some of the youtubers chose to write about their lives, their path to fame, while others prefered to create a book full of fun!
