The 15 Most Anticipated Books of 2024, According to BookTok

BookTok has spoken — add these titles to your TBR list ASAP.

Back in the day (that is, 10 years ago), you discovered new reads by browsing the bookstore, seeing what was in stock in the library or getting recommendations from friends. Now, you tune in to #BookTok.

This TikTok community is solely responsible for everyone's TBR list and for making titles such as "It Ends With Us" go viral — including titles that haven't even been released yet. Once the clock struck 12:01 a.m. on Jan. 1, prominent BookTok-ers pushed out videos detailing the books they're most excited to read in 2024. And their followers followed suit in preordering the lot. If you thought Reese's Book Club was helpful, you'll love how passionate the BookTok community is.

If you're like me, your bookshelf is already flowing with existing titles that need to be read, and thinking about the 2024 lineup just gives you heart palpitations. But scrolling through the list of anticipated books, I totally get it.

While 2023 seemed all about fantasy (where are my "Fourth Wing" girlies at?), independent editorial book site Book Riot predicts that the new year will see more fun plays on the trends readers have loved most. So expect more romance subgenres such as romantasy and time travel, cozy mysteries, AI-written fiction, and all the escapism we're still craving in these post-pandemic days.

So, how does internet hype measure up to these calculated predictions? Let's take a look at the 15 most-anticipated books of 2024, according to BookTok.
