TikTok users who discuss books
I read like two books a year before I found BookTok. Now I'm reading a zillion! Here are my faves ...
|TikToker||A TikTok user|
|RTFB||Read the flippin' book|
|TBR||To be read|
|Book hangover||Remaining attached to a book you just finished|
|Shipping||Hoping for two people to get into a relationship|
|Headcanon||A fan's unverified beliefs about a story|
|BMS||Broke my scale|
|FYP||For You page|
TikTokers who want to discuss, reenact, or recommend their favorite books post using the #BookTok hashtag, and they may describe themselves as being part of the BookTok community. This group of literary-minded TikTok users loves squeeing about their fave novels, often by riffing off each others' recommendations and content.
Genres of BookTok videos include (but are not limited to):
Because BookTok's recommendations are becoming more and more popular, you may also see the term appear IRL in your favorite local bookstore, paired with a selection of books that have gone viral on TikTok. (And contrary to what you might think, most of those books are actually good - yes, even the young adult ones.)
