#BookTok Accounts You Should Be Following Right Now
Getting lost in a good book happens quite often for me. Who can resist a good romantic storyline, a dystopian adventure, or a classic whodunit? But recently, I've discovered the joy of something else — getting swept away in #BookTok videos on TikTok. These users love books just as much as I do, and they post pretty rainbow displays of their bookshelves, books they could not put down this month, and what's in their TBR pile, plus funny reenactments of life as a book-lover. It's pure gold.
