Popular BookTokker, @claudiatalksfilm shares her recent favourite #BookTok recommendations with us! With a great selection of Fantasy, Young-Adult, and Contemporary Romance, you may find your next read!

The Final Strife by Saara El-Arifi

“I find it hard to believe this is El-Arifi’s debut book. The way the magic system, world building, character development, and overarching themes are intertwined is exceptional; it’s utterly brutal, captivating, and masterfully written.”

The Poppy War by R.F Kuang

“No fantasy series has ever engaged me as much as The Poppy War, and I fear no series ever will again. An unflinching look at war and the morality of those trying to survive. R.F. Kuang, you are a genius.”

Glow by Raven Kennedy (Book #4 in Plated Prisoner Series

“Fantasy Romance at its finest! The Plated Prisoner series is highly addictive, and the latest installment is no exception. I adore these characters and will wait impatiently for the next one.”

Lore Olympus by Rachel Symthe

“‘Hades and Persephone’ is a myth that is continuously portrayed in books, but none do it better than Lore Olympus. The art style is wonderfully expressive, and the graphic novel format hooks you in.”

Defy The Night by Brigid Kemmerer

“If you want an addictive, fast-paced, and high-stakes young adult fantasy, look no further than Defy the Night. A mysterious illness is killing the kingdom, and our protagonists (friends to lovers?!) steal the cure from the rich to give to the poor. I devoured this in one sitting.”

The No-Show by Beth O’Leary

“A unique romance book in that there are three protagonists but only one love interest. Best to go into this book blind and enjoy the ride – it’s well worth it. O’Leary’s best book yet.”

Heartstopper Volume 1 by Alice Oseman

“You know that cozy feeling you get when you’re wrapped in a blanket, cup of tea in hand, rain softly falling outside? Heartstopper exudes that same energy. The most adorable, heartwarming books I’ve ever read, and I can’t recommend them enough.

Dial A For Aunties by Jesse Sutano

“An effortlessly fun second chance romance book with a side of murder and four meddling aunties? Sign me up. Excellently paced with memorable characters, this is a book destined to become a movie.”

After I Do by Taylor Jenkins Reid

“Jenkins Reid is most known for her more recent releases, but After I Do is such a grounded examination of love and how it changes over time that I feel it needs more hype. One of my all-time favourite contemporary novels. And there are new covers now which are beautiful!”

Babel by R.F Kuang

“One future release I can’t for! A dark academia fantasy book about the violence of British colonialism with a cool magic system involving engraving silver by the author of the Poppy War? Sounds right up my alley. Easily my most anticipated release of the year, which you can pre-order now.”
