Welcome back to Bookstr’s BookTok recommendations! In this week’s edition, we will be recommending you some great books that feature the enemies to lovers trope! Who doesn’t love such a good, exciting transition of the character’s relationships? Personally, there is nothing that amounts to a better conflict. This week’s books are recommended to us by @maditasbibliotheca on TikTok, a fellow bookworm, and book enthusiast.
Tweet Cute by Emma Lord
A YA rom-com that is absolutely and adorably irresistible. Emma Lord explores how the paths we take, and the choices that we make ultimately all happen for a reason. Also, love can be found in the most unexpected places. Pepper is a swim team captain, chronic overachiever, and all-around perfectionist who thinks she just doesn’t have time for love until it falls into her lap.
Under the Lights by Abbi Glines
A YA book: Three teens from a small town are stuck in a dramatic love triangle. Willa can’t undo the past that has brought her to where she is, but she can achieve her goal of earning her family’s forgiveness for her faults?
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
This book follows a demon’s assistant, Karou, who helps collect teeth for the family of her youth. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real, and she has blue hair that glows. A young art student gets entranced by this blue-haired demon, yet she does not know the truth-who is she?
A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
This is a book that completes the Cursebreaker series; it follows the story of Harper Lacy and Prince Rhen who is the cursed heir to a fairytale kingdom.
