If you don't know what BookTok is, well you're in for a treat. It's this side of TikTok filled with different book recommendations and all things book-lover. It is by far my favorite side of TikTok and has led me to read so many new books I would have never picked up myself! Here are just a few of the many that I have read because of BookTok...

A Court of Thorns and Roses ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This has been my favorite book I have found on Booktok (technically my sister found it but that's beside the point). Out of all of the books on this list I will defend that everyone should read this one till my grave. I have no more words other than this is a must read… period. (p.s. Its a series) 

They Both Die at The End ⭐⭐⭐

I do recommend this book as it has a great message to it but I found that the way it was written was not my personal favorite. I do understand the hype behind this book and do recommend otherwise but it is definitely a slower paced book that took me a while to get through!

Beautiful World, Where are You ⭐⭐⭐.5

I have loved other books by Sally Rooney such as Normal People which is why I gave the extra half a star, but this one was long for its 368 pages. I found little to no point in the story which is upsetting because I thought it sounded great. But I do think this book is a good read if you have read any of her other books, but I'd probably recommend something else.

The Love Hypothesis ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

If you love a fake dating trope this book is for you!! One of my newer favorites on this list. This book was so good and such a quick and light read but all the while still exciting and kept me hooked! I loved the way the characters were written in this which makes it even better. This author also has a few new books coming out in May and August of this year which will most likely be on my next recommendation list!

Red White and Royal Blue ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Red White and Royal Blue was such a good quick read for me! The story kept me engaged the whole time and was super good! If you like secret dating and an enemy to lovers trope this is yours! It's also a gay love story that is written beautifully *chef's kiss*. It has so many good reviews and is such a must read! Also Casey McQuiston has written some other great books that you should definitely check out!

I hope this helps with some of your questions on what to read! Just know there are always many more amazing books waiting to be read! Follow me/friend me/scroll through my Goodreads bookshelves to see what else I recommend not only from BookTok and some of my 5 star picks!
