No one does book reviews quite like @newlynova. With over 180,000 followers, the BookToker is best known for her signature "chaotic" reviews.

There's no one doing book reviews quite like her. To give you a sense of just how chaotic her reviews are, she described Alice Oseman's Heartstopper as better than her antidepressants and said Colleen Hoover's Verity will kill any sense of childhood left in you.

And she's 100% right on both fronts.

Her reviews will have you running to the bookstore before you even finish a single video.
