It is fair to say that TikTok has changed the face of reading. BookTok has become a hub for readers everywhere. Sending books that are years old to the bestsellers lists and connecting readers directly to their favorite writers. While many follow “BookTokers” to get their latest recommended reads, there is also a ton of fun to be had in following the authors themselves. Here are few you should tune into if you aren’t already.
