TikTok continues to sweep and we are not surprised because this platform has become the main destination for mobile videos due to its short and attractive format.
This platform is revolutionizing all areas of people’s daily lives. It just takes creativity, energy and a lot of desire to dare to make a video. New initiatives keep popping up on TikTok so that people will also be encouraged by them. The latter is the #BookTok phenomenon
What is #BookTok? It is the tendency to make videos that range from book trailers to reflections on characters and plots. The authors create very dynamic formats using striking letters, colors according to the covers of the books, accompanying them with the soundtrack of the texts or songs of the moment.
Beyond contemporary literature there are also creators who make videos based on classic books that are now becoming more viral and what they do is recreate the characters and tell the plot of the novels in a fun and educational way. Many of them choose to collaborate with each other so that the videos are not only starred by one person, but by a group of readers who teach us the synopses of the books, the places where certain scenes occur or are simply recorded to let us see the reaction they have when they read a certain chapter.
The videos within the #BookTok hashtag have more than 7 billion views. It started out as a small phenomenon, but today it has crossed all borders to become something global and it does not matter what language you speak because the stories in the books unite people of many nationalities.
If you want to join, all you will need is to prepare your favorite book and focus on what you want to convey: your favorite phrases, the names of the characters or the life of the author of the book. Get somewhere comfortable at home and record yourself so that readers can see your tastes and also, why not, make friends.
