If you’re an avid reader in 2022, chances are that you’ve probably found yourself on BookTok' every now and then. In case that term is unfamiliar to you, BookTok is a subcategory of the app TikTok in which users share videos of book reviews, recommendations, theories, and more.

 

The explosion of the online BookTok community has caused an incredible increase in book sales over the last few years. As a result of user recommendations and reviews, it has become quite common for specific books to gain rapid notoriety within the community. Some popular books that have taken BookTok by storm include It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid, and The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood.

 

Although BookTok is never lacking in content, the popular recommendations can be rather repetitive after a while. You may never get tired of hearing about your favorite novel, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t explore the other books out there! If you’ve happened to finish the most viral BookTok recommendations, there are plenty of other books to satisfy your reader’s withdrawal.
