What's popular on TikTok?


People love talking about books online, and the best way to find these conversations is by searching for specific hashtags. In the case of TikTok, use #BookTok. Use these lists to find some of these books in the library collection. Because there may be waiting lists for some titles and authors, we created read-alike lists for them.
