Can you name an author with a stronger BookTok presence than the inimitable Colleen Hoover? I certainly can’t. Colleen’s contemporary fiction, often depicting the lives, and loves, of young people as they navigate life crises, relationships, and their burgeoning adulthoods.
It’s hard to believe that a mere decade ago, Hoover self-published her first novel Slammed. That’s right SELF-PUBLISHED! The woman put some 123 000 words to paper and published it onto Amazon Kindle. A few great reviews and Amazon sales later, Colleen Hoover’s first two novels were propelled onto The New York Times Bestsellers List. From there, she was just a hop, skip and jump away from dominating TikTok’s literary pocket’s algorithm. Though she has written over twenty books, let’s take a moment to talk about our favourites.
