What is the TBR takeover?

A guide for readers.

The TBR takeover.

A Booktok Event

How many books are on your TBR (to be read) pile? Imagine being able to build a TBR pile for a whole month from a catalogue of books and receiving digital copies FREE in exchange for tiktok reviews. That's what the TBR take over is all about. Its all built with independent and self published authors.

Every June and November we will host a month long event aimed to connect readers to authors whom may have been over looked normally, not any more. You receive the catalogue a month before the event starts and you can build your TBR pile for the event. 

You will be sent links to download your chosen books at the start of the event and then we all read and review together on tiktok, and if you like you can leave reviews on amazon and other platforms too.


Frequently asked questions.

Do I have to be on Tiktok to take part?

This is a primarily a tiktok event however due to many, many enquires we are opening this up to other social media platforms. So readers can take part as long as they review on one or more of the following platforms...





Due to strict Amazon rules we can not request that readers leave an amazon review in exchange for a free book. If you read a TBR book and wish to leave an amazon review of your own accord this is totally awesome.

How much does the event cost?

All the books in the catalogue are free downloads and so the event is free for both authors and readers.

What do I do if I don't like a book?

In this event we always ask for honest reviews however it might not be the nicest idea to leave a negative review in the form of a video on tiktok. The event is all about celebrating the joy of reading so its never nice to be tagged in a video review that's really negative. If in doubt please just contact myself for advice or DNF the book and move on to the next one.

I don't read digital books can you provide paperbacks?

We get asked this a lot and the answer is no. The books are digital format or audio format. The event is a free event for both authors and readers and so its unfair to expect authors to buy paperbacks. You are more than welcome to buy paperback versions and support the authors but unfortunately we don't provide them for the event.
