If you are anything like me, your TikTok For You Page is consistently filled with reading recommendations, indicating that you are also a part of #BookTok. #BookTok refers to the section of TikTok devoted to book reviews and recommendations. For some authors, gaining traction and having massive engagement on #BookTok has changed their career. Rebecca Yarros is one of those authors, and you may recognize her name from hearing all about Fourth Wing last year. Check out Time Magazine for an in-depth look into how her books have become pop culture phenomenons. Some of these books are super popular, so you might have to place a hold if you’re interested in them. Here are some of the most beloved romance reads for adults from the past few years to celebrate Valentine’s Day!
If you’re looking for more romance reads or other books besides romance, give Novelist a try. Novelist is an online database that you can access for free with your library card. You can search for a title that you’ve recently read and see similar read-alikes or browse by appeals, genre, or subject. Novelist makes finding similar reads so easy that you’ll be sure to add a lot of books to your TBR (to be read) list!
