John-Paul aka @jpreads on TikTok is a Black Book enthusiast with a particular love for Literary Fiction, Thrillers, and Romance. He sets out to put more Black and Queer reads from authors around the world on people’s bookshelves and brings to their attention authors that mainstream media may not always pay attention to. He plans to continue to encourage everyone to diversify their bookshelves and enjoy stories from perspectives that they may have never considered before.
