I LOVE getting book recs from TikTok. After hours of careful curation (aka watching way too many videos), BookTok knows exactly what kind of books I like and will recommend them with videos filled with brilliant reviews. Below you’ll find some of the Simon Teen books that BookTok is recommending you pick up this year!
Robbie Couch's latest book, Another First Chance, is BookTok catnip. This queer romance comes with a dash of heartbreaking tragedy, a little sci-fi intrigue, and a STUNNING cover!
Powerless was THE YA BookTok fantasy of 2023, and the highly-anticipated sequel, Reckless, is hitting shelves in Summer 2024! We can't wait to reunite with Paedyn and Kai as they face edge-of-your-seat betrayal... and spicy tension.
Iconic YA romance author Morgan Matson is back and better than ever with her new novel, The Ballad of Darcy & Russell! This book has ALL of the good things you want in a Morgan Matson romance: swoony romance, an adorable dog, a huge, wild family, and plenty of friendship!
This year we're getting sequels to fan favorites that we couldn't have even dreamed of, and Past Present Future is one of them! Today Tonight Tomorrow was an instant hit, and this romantic, dual POV sequel follows Rowan and Neil on a new adventure: a long-distance relationship during their first year of college!
Fans of Lynn Painter will want to add this smart, hilarious, and chemistry-filled rom-com to their TBR immediately! Wyn and Three are one of our FAVE couples of 2024, and their enemies-to-lovers, competitive, slow-burn relationship is on that will have you giggling and kicking your feet from their first interaction.
If you're a fan of dark fantasy combined with romantasy, this debut is a must-read! Plus, it's PERFECT for fans of Howl’s Moving Castle, Uprooted, and Margaret Rogerson!
F.T. Lukens has built themselves a die-hard fanbase on BookTok with In Deeper Waters, So This is Ever After, and Spell Bound which are all swoony, fantasy romances filled with amazing LGBTQIA+ casts! Their latest is Otherworldly, a magical, romantic adventure with an ADORABLE romance and incredible world-building!
There are few things that BookTok loves more than a stunning cover, and Liselle Sambury’s latest has a BRILLIANT one that fans are obsessed with, and an amazing, mind-bending story to match! Tender Beasts has a murder mystery, delicious twists and turns, and plenty of family drama.
