It is a place where readers, writers, and creators discuss books, share book recommendations, and much more. TikTok claims that the #BookTok community took off in the first half of 2020, which increased book sales for authors.

In order to make it simple for customers to identify the most talked-about books, book retailers like Barnes & Noble have even placed BookTok tables on their storefronts. Here are 5 trendy #BookTok books that you might enjoy if you’re having difficulties picking what to read next or are just curious about what books are popular on TikTok.

Happy Place by Emily Henry: A Booktok Sensation

Happy Place by Emily Henry: A Booktok Sensation

Emily Henry continues to do so. This is the book to read if you want to understand summer. The April release “Happy Place” tells the story of a group of college buddies who go to their friend’s beach cottage every year in Maine.

In order to keep their friends happy, Harriet and Wyn, who recently broke up, must act as though they are still together. This results in an interesting summer full of lobster rolls, wine, boat trips, and anxiety, especially because the beach house is soon to be sold. “Happy Place” is a terrific book to read by the pool since it alternates between the past and present while letting you explore friendships, relationships, growing up, and letting go.

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

This book offers a unique perspective on Greek mythology. Patroclus, a prince who is completely different from Achilles, encounters Achilles, the son of a sea goddess and King Peleus. Together, the two best friends receive training in both medicine and warfare, and their romance grows. Then they join the siege on Troy after Helen of Sparta is abducted not long after. It’s refreshing and offers a new perspective on Achilles that this book is written from Patroclus’ point of view. War, myths, and folklore make for a fantastic light read.
