They said it couldn’t be done, but we did it; we’ve put together a list of the top 10 must-read books on Wattpad.
If you don’t know what Wattpad is, then we are honoured to be the ones to introduce you to it for the first time. That being said, if you are a voracious reader, it is highly likely that you’ve probably been on Wattpad for a long time.
Wattpad is like a mash-up of Goodreads and a blog, packaging the best of both worlds (Hannah Montana feels) into a fantastically designed website, giving an author a platform to display their work and build a fan base, and giving readers a plethora of material to consume at no cost. The site has 35 million unique visitors per month and there are over two million writers.
Now, millions of writers are equivalent to millions of books and it can be quite daunting to pick the ones that you want to read. Well, since we love you all, we took on this daunting task on your behalf and created this list of the 10 best books ever on Wattpad and when we say best books ever, we’re talking about top-tier stuff; bucket list material, books that you’ll save in a fire. So, without further ado here is your list:-
- Storm and Silence by RobThier
This book is hands down one of the best on Wattpad. It is a historical fiction and takes place in London when women could not vote or do anything really. It is funny, witty and enlightening. The book revolves around a suffragette and a chauvinist and what do a suffragette and a chauvinist have in common? Absolutely Nothing, but it definitely makes for great and entertaining reading.
Victorian era, balls, politics, mystery, slow burning romance, and a brooding and rude male lead, one cannot ask for more.
- Death Is My BFF by katrocks247
This book is one of the most wicked, if not the most wicked, books on Wattpad. Although it begins as a thriller, it is extremely hilarious. From the sarcastic and dark humour of Death to Faith’s determination, it will keep you on the edge of your seat. Oh man, this will get you good, laughing out loud, and the cynical remarks and sarcasm are perfect. A definite must-read.
- Hey Beautiful by TaintedRain
This is one of those books that can make you stay up all night just to read it. There are parts that are predictable and some that are very shocking. The characters are amazing and you’ll fangirl, scream and swoon. Although the book is hilarious, you’ll find yourself on the verge of tears at some points.
- Pause (Previously called His Bubblegum Klutz) by CJ268HBK
This book will definitely be one of the funniest books you’ll ever read. The female protagonist, Aqueela (unique name, isn’t it?), has the busiest life ever and is always in the most chaotic scenarios and surprisingly, she is the one that makes them chaotic. It is extremely well written and the plot is well thought out. This is one those books that’ll make you laugh out loud and make your day a bit better.
- The V.I.P. by KanyeInterruptedMe
This book is one of the most hyped Wattpad books and as a reader, it is really scary to dive into books that such hype surrounding them but The V.I.P. does not disappoint. It has it all; it is Amazing, Hot, Romantic, Sweet, and Sexy. Recommended to all who want to read short, but a really sexy book.
- The Girl He Never Noticed by sweetdreamer33
This is a beautiful love story of two people who come from two different ends of the spectrum. It is one of the most loved books on the site. It is not quite the stereotypical romance, but it has the right amount of clichés to make it absolutely heartbreaking and intriguing. It is a story of anticipation mixed with good portions of romance that leaves the reader wanting more of Jade and Eros.
- After by imaginator1D
This is actually a One Direction Fan Fiction and admit it or not, we all love ourselves a little bit of 1D. The plot is engaging, not particularly good, but definitely engaging. The relationship between the protagonists is not healthy at all. In fact, it is the opposite of healthy, but that creates a level of drama that will melt your heart and we all love drama, don’t we? When an author makes you yell and scream and feel an emotion, it is called Good Writing and Anna Todd does this impeccably.
- Two Tickets To Paradise by BindingTies
If you’re looking for a well-written book that will take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions, this one is for you. The plot is exceptionally intriguing and swoon worthy. You will see that the author has spent a lot of time and effort in writing it. You won’t be able to put this book down until it is finished, for sure.
- Melancholy of Quinn by MayenWrites
It is one of those rare gems of books that will leave you wondering like why doesn’t it have a number of views and votes that it truly deserves. It is far from the clichés and leads you through a whirlwind of emotions. A reader values an author who can make them feel, and boy, does this book make you feel. Highly recommended.
- Torn by ariarlyn918
There is no way to describe this book. It is one of those books that are so good that you just don’t know how to review it and do it justice. Just expect the unexpected with this one.
Well, that concludes the list of our top 10 must-read books on Wattpad. You know, writing this is actually making me want to re-read these books again and that is not good for my social life. Not good at all. Well, you go and give these books a go and let us know what you think.
