BookTok Tips + Tricks

Booktok is the side of TikTok dedicated solely to books and author. It’s where readers and writers can share their experiences, talk about their favorite books, and make other bookish friends.

I’ve been posting booktok content on my TikTok account since December of 2019. For some reason, in March, one of my videos blew up. Then another. Then another. It was surreal. Now, I’ve been a booktoker for around 9 months (6 months of posting daily), and I’ve learned quite a few things about the platform.

So, if you’re new to booktok, or you’re a seasoned booktoker looking to grow their audience, I have some tips for you that might help.

I can’t promise this will make your videos blow up– I can’t pretend to understand the TikTok algorithm- but hopefully these tips can help a little.

I’m planning on making this a series on my blog, where I dive into everything booktok related. Part 2 will hopefully be coming soon, going into the history of booktok and how to start your own!

That said, I want to talk about where it goes to far, and the issues it brings to the community.
