About the Creator

Hanna Varilek (she/her)

Hello! My name is Hanna Varilek and welcome to the BookTok Collective! I'm so happy you're here.

I am a second-year Master's student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln studying Composition and Rhetoric. I have been a member of BookTok (@hannarosereads) since June of 2020. The BookTok Collective is a passion project of mine, and one that wouldn't be possible without the wonderful world of BookTok. Please see below for some information regarding my educational history, and everything that helped make The BookTok Collective come to life. 


“BookTok is what ultimately inspired me to return to academia and pursue an MA degree...”
