Whether it’s lists of not-so-underrated book recommendations, POVs from inside your favorite books, or opinions about shelving that have you tearing out your hair, TikTok is full of bookish content. I, admittedly, spend too much time scrolling as a result. What used to be reading time on the bus or before bed has now turned into TikTok time. It’s a problem…but not one I’m doing anything to change. There’s nothing like Noodle’s bones/no bones or Berries and Cream TikTok to keep me coming back for more.
I’ve been recommended many of these most popular books on TikTok, some expected and others quite otherwise. Most surprising, though, is the pure accuracy of my for you page. TikTok’s algorithm in combination with the massive amounts of content I consume in any given hour has pinpointed my likes and dislikes, my personality and preferences, almost perfectly. (Though, for a program so on-point, I somehow only ever get videos that have every Zodiac sign in them except mine.)
So, if you’re like me, your FYP is rife with unexpected insights into who you are and what you should read. Take the quiz below based on your FYP and let us recommend you something good!
