I was bored and I was thinking about BookTube and how I would love an actual TV channel that was just Book Talks and author interviews and TV/Movie adaptations and all the news and commercials were about upcoming books… So I made a Book Tag!
- Credit me, JMTuckerman, as the creator, please and thank you.

You’ve got your own show and it’s called…
Go ahead, give your new show a bookish title (puns are more than acceptable) and a purpose!
I’d actually call it Booked All Night and it would be a late night discussion show, just like my new podcast (insert shameless self promotion). I would probably have little skits in between guest interviews. OR It would be a late night panel show, and I’d have different authors on each week to talk about ridiculous trends in YA. Like that weird one now where a lot of characters seem to fall in love with their sibling. Which is gross. I hope that stops soon.
Gather your sponsors…
Any great endeavor needs money to get it started! What bookish fandoms are most likely to bring in the views?
Ooooh, fandoms. I think the Harry Potter fandom would definitely deliver, but also probably John Green’s devoted army, and probably the Shadowhunters fandom. I feel like they’re also an over-analytical fandom and would proudly sponsor such a show. I can only imagine the commercials.
What are you airing?
List up to five for each type of show.
Costume/Period Dramas (Historical Fiction)
Definitely Stalking Jack the Ripper. I think it would fit nicely as a detective show too!
Okay, just here me out on this one. Heck: Where the Bad Kids Go. Dead children who mistakenly get sent to Hell (well, Heck because they’re underage). Every season a new circle! Nine seasons guaranteed! Puns galore!
Literally anything by Sarah J. Maas? But more specifically, the Court of Thorns and Roses series. What’s that? This guy was dead for 50 years? AND NOW HE’S BACK!? I’d watch it.
Hmmm… Honestly I think a Harry Potter docudrama would be hilarious to watch. Imagine an adult Harry recounting breaking all the school rules and death eaters in Azkaban with their faces blurred describing the Dark Lord’s plans.
TV Series (an episodic adaptation of works of fiction)
Currently? I think Red Queen would work very well. Aveyard’s writing is very cinematic and would easily be adaptable to the screen.
Interact with your audience…
Which bloggers are going to be your newscasters? (pick up to five)
- Annie Earnshaw @annielikeswords
- Kristin @kristinkravesbooks
- Ellie @coffeewithellieblog
- Breeny @breenysbooks
Which bloggers are going to have in depth discussions about the latest releases and analyze them beyond belief? (pick up to five)
The Game Show…
What game show are you audience members dying to be on? Adapt something from a book, use your favorite booktube game, or make one up!
Okay-how does every one feel about the Hunger Games? No? I’m guessing I’m getting a lot of head shaking. But what if we did it with foam weapons and played it off a bit like Legends of the Hidden Temple? No one dies, they just get taken through some doors on the set. And everyone can set traps for other contestants, and it’s a bit like flag football, and I haven’t thought this out very well.
