As much as I hate to admit it, a very good portion of my downtime is committed to looking at bookish things on Instagram. From images of my favorite books to shelfies, book hauls and reading books, I am constantly looking for beautiful images of books. From creative inspiration to recommendations for new books to read, Instagram is a great place to turn for all things book related thanks to the Bookstagram community.
While it’s easy to find book related images on Instagram, the bookish Instagram community is very large. Featuring a wide and varied number of Bookstagrammers, or people who have accounts dedicated to all things book related, Instagram is without a doubt one of the best places to go for book inspiration. While there are hundreds of active accounts that feature stunning book related images, here’s a list of some of the Bookstagram accounts that will appeal to book lovers from all walks of life.
Although I have increasingly been spending a lot of time on Instagram looking at bookish things, I did not start following Bookstagram accounts until very recently. @thereaderandthechef, run by sisters Melissa (the reader) and Isabel (the chef), was actually the first bookish account I followed on Instagram. This YA focused Bookstagram account is the perfect blend of book and food porn.
From YA themed book stacks, book hauls and book subscription box unboxings, this Instagram account has it all. Featuring delicious desserts and gorgeous themed book posts, @thereaderandthechef is sure to be a hit among YA fans.
