TikTok Book Awards 2024: Check out the shortlist


It’s no secret that TikTok’s #BookTok community wields major influence on what books become bestsellers. And the TikTok Book Awards further established TikTok in the book space.

The awards, which are based in the UK and Ireland, are back for another year. Today, the social media company announced the shortlist for the 2024 TikTok Book Awards.

While there are still seven categories, they differ slightly from last year. TikTok divided Book of the Year into international, UK, and Ireland, replaced BookTok Author of the Year with BookTok Breakthrough Author, and introduced the BookTok Rising Star Creator and TikTok Shop Book of the Year.

Curated by a panel of judges including members of the UK literary community, TikTok creator Jack Edwards, and previous winner Eden Victoria, the awards aim to “celebrate and recognise the books, the independent book shops, the authors and the creators that have made the #BookTok community such a unique place,” according to TikTok.

The BookTok community will decide all the winners — except for TikTok Shop Book of the Year, which is determined based on sales data and impact on the app. The in-app voting hub is open until July 14, and winners will be announced on July 25.

Last year’s winners included Bolu Babalola’s Honey and Spice, Dolly Alderton’s Everything I Know About Love, and Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.

Here’s the official 2024 shortlist.
