It's already the first week of November (!) As we hurtle rapidly towards December, you're probably starting to think of Christmas gifts, and how little time you have between now and Christmas Day (us too).
Having a bookworm on your list makes your life simultaneously easier and harder: on the upside, books are usually a failsafe gift choice, but it can be hard to find the perfect book for a book lover (probably because they've usually already read every book worth reading).
Enter: BookTok.

So whether you’re hoping to gift a heart-pounding romance, a twisted fantasy or a dark academia title this year, BookTok will have a great suggestion.
Ahead, the twelve books that are having a major moment on BookTok, with bookworms everywhere confirming that they’re worth a read — for yourself or for someone on your Xmas gift list.
