Bookstagram community, which is a community of the bibliophiles on Instagram, is all about sharing book reviews, aesthetic pictures of books, opinions on authors etc.
It’s a place where you will find books being hyped to such an extent that you will be forced to buy the books. That’s how much it influences you. Yes, even I, under the bookstagram influence end up buying books, which later on, for me doesn’t live up to the hype.
So, here are some of the books that are really really hyped by the bookstagram community.
Books by Collen Hoover
Hyped up books and no Collen Hoover? That can not happen. The bookstagram community hypes up the Collen Hoover books so much that if you haven’t read any of them, you will see with a surprised look ( yes, the community can get toxic sometimes). Two of her most hyped books include “It ends with us” (so obvious right) and also its sequel, ” It starts with us” (like Duh!)
A lot of the readers loved them while others didn’t. For me personally, these two books didn’t live up to the hype. Also in some of her books, trauma is kind of romanticized because of which they are a “no no” for me. But yes, there are people who enjoy reading them because it’s “fiction” but yeah, her books didn’t live up to the hype for me.
The Twisted Series
The Twisted Series, by Ana Huang is another book series which is really hyped by the community. The Twisted series have 4 books : Twisted Love, Twisted Games, Twisted Hate and Twisted Lies. The book tropes that you will find in this series are : grumpy×sunshine, enemies to lovers , brother’s best friend and fake dating.
Personally, this is one of my favourite romance book series. I mean there’s Alex Volkov, Josh Chen, Rhys Larsen and CHRISTIANN HARPERRR, I mean what’s not to like here right.
Men who burn down the world for their women and give ” Touch her and die vibes” yes that’s everyone’s fav trope and it makes it a 5 star read already. So yes, I feel this book series is definitely worth the hype.
A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson
I am pretty sure if you are a reader, you have got the news of ‘AGGTM’ coming on screen. Well, I would really suggest reading the books first. Trust me, you are going to get addicted to this series. A Female main character who solves a muder case as her school project which the police couldn’t, this series is also going to show the sides of Pip, you didn’t even imagine in your wildest dreams. So yes, you can surely give this series a try. For me, it did live up to the hype and is one of my fav series.
The Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
The Ninth House is a dark academia vibe, fantasy book. It’s about a drop out student who can see ghosts and is now in a mysterious university holding a lot of secrets in its walls. This book is in my TBR and I guess I would be reading it towards the spooky season because of its vibe obviously. But yes, this book is all around bookstagram and one of the hyped books.
Survive the Night by Riley Sager
Riley Sager’s books are well known because of their thriller genre. This book is well known among the community who likes to read thriller. It is about a girl who takes a lift from a stranger from college to return to her home. Meanwhile there’s a serial killer around the campus killing people. And she during her journey starts worrying if she trusted the wrong person and if he might be a killer. So, if you love thriller, you can definitely check this book out.
So these were some of the books that the bookstagram/booktok community keeps talking about and you will most probably see these books in everyone’s profile. So do give them a try. Happy reading !
