Wattpad is a popular online platform that offers a free space for users to read and publish original stories. With a vast collection of stories written by over 300,000 writers from 35 countries and available in over 50 languages, it’s no wonder that it is one of the largest reading and writing platforms in the world.
Wattpad’s most notable feature is the Watty Awards, which is considered the largest writing competition. The Watty Awards attract thousands of writers from all over the world, making it an exciting and diverse competition. The platform also offers an opportunity for readers to connect with authors and other readers who share their interests, through comments and messages.
Many stories on Wattpad have become so popular that they have been turned into movies and TV dramas. Some of the most well-known stories that were adapted into movies include “After” and “The Kissing Booth”. This not only shows the impact Wattpad has had on the literary world but also highlights the potential of the platform for aspiring writers.
In an effort to support authors, Wattpad launched a publishing division named Wattpad Books in 2019. The aim was to assist authors in taking the guesswork out of publishing and to help them get their stories out to a wider audience.
As a reader on Wattpad since 2018, I have discovered many hidden gems and talented writers on the platform. These authors come from various backgrounds and age groups, each with their unique writing style and voice. I highly recommend checking out some of the authors on this platform and supporting them. The books on Wattpad are sure to capture your imagination and leave you wanting more.

Reetilicious The Authors of Mia Regina
“Arie,” he whispered, his smile dropping as he closed the distance between us. “I’m sor…”
My right hand met his left cheek brutally, stopping all that he had to say. “How dare you?” I hissed, landing another smack on the same spot. “How could you do this to me?” I raised my hand up again to place another one, but he caught my wrist before I could do so.
“Plan your next move very carefully,” he spoke in a low, belligerent tone tightening his grip on my wrist, daring me to slap him again. Pain jolted from the area, forcing tears to sting at the corner of my eyes.
“Or what?” I scowled at him.

Jessica (Bradleys_Toothpick) The Author of His Secret
“God. I can’t wait to get the fuck out of here.” Cole, my dorm mate, grumbled, tossing his arm over his eyes.
“I bet I know why,” I mused. “How are things going with the vivacious blonde hair sassy mouth beauty back home?” I asked and laughed when he flipped me off.
“So, are you going back home now since you got your business degree?” he asked, peeking at me under his arm.
I harumphed. “Nah. You know, home isn’t quite the same without my mom there anymore.”
My mother’s face instantly flashed before my eyes, sending a sting to my heart. I miss her more and more every day.
“Then what’s your plan?” he asked me.
Licking the blunt wrap filled with weed, I twisted it tightly at the end and balanced it between my lips. “I haven’t figured it out just yet. I suppose I should start though,” I chuckled and then lit the end, slowly inhaling a long drag.
He pinched the blunt from my fingers as I blew out a lung full of purple haze, and instantly started coughing.
“Shit, man. Why not come back home with me?” he suddenly asked before taking a hit from the blunt.
I laughed. “So we can get high with your hometown buddies and piss away the summer.”
“Well, yeah. That and check out the new underground club my buddy Jacks told me about last week. I know the owner, I’m sure I can see if he needs any help-you know, put some money in our pockets for the summer.”
Spearing a hand through my hair, I couldn’t deny to myself that his offer sounded pretty sweet.
Raising a brow, I looked at him, questionably. “Your mom would be ok with a guy she doesn’t even know staying there for the summer?”
He laughed. “My mom won’t be a problem, trust me.”
Hell, what could be the harm in blowing off steam for the summer?
Inhaling another drag from the blunt, I smirked at him. “Fuck it. Count me in.”
Ali Lee (TheLittleLees) The Author of A beta life
I heard the boy’s voice before I saw his face. It sounded like the smooth rehearsed kind of voice you hear in the movies, from the dream boat lead character with the too-good-to-be-true looks. I raised my eyes to search for the owner of the beautiful sound.
My eyes met his just as he came into view.
He stopped in his tracks, bumping into one of the med students he was following, staring straight at Me.
“Mate,” he said just loud enough for the huge man behind him to stop and stare in the direction of the boy’s gaze.
I felt a sickening feeling deep in my stomach. I had never felt anything like it before, the instant feeling of nausea followed by what i can only describe as a rush of emotion. What a trip.
The meds are extra strong today I laughed to myself as I continued to stare at the beautiful dark-haired boy.
This institution just got a whole lot better if he is a patient
