Ten Instagram Accounts Book Lovers Should Follow

Do you love books? Do you find yourself giddy over beautiful photos of books and people reading? Do you need good book recommendations? If you answered yes, I can’t wait to share with you 10 Instagram accounts you should be following! The bookstagram community is just BURSTING with amazing accounts but I kept this to 10!

I mean, I feel like I’d be remiss if I didn’t plug my own here. HI MY NAME IS JAMIE AND I HAVE AN INSTAGRAM IN ADDITION TO THIS BLOG AND WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO CHECK IT OUT. I post pictures of books and my cute dog Finn sooooo maybe you might like it? It’s not nearly as beautiful as the ones I’m going to feature sooo figured I’d start with that so it didn’t seem  like a disappointment after all the droolworthy photos you’re going to see below. MANAGING EXPECTATIONS AND THINGS.

So you can follow me @perpetualpageturner

Now on to the 10 people I think you should follow:

1. @crimeofrhyme

This feed is just so dreamy and I love the ~theme~ she has going on.  Plus it’s always making me hungry or having a desperate craving for a coffee! I love that she reads eclectically like I do.

2. @lifeinlit

Lisa’s photos are bright, crisp and beautiful and definitely the place to go if you love YA books and contemporary romance! Plus she’s a fellow blogger and I’ve enjoyed watching her bookstagram account take off because it’s beautiful!

3. @xcrini

I love Crini’s gorgeous more minimalist style and find her account to be super underrated!! She’s always experimenting with new styles and unique ways to photograph books and her account has been a joy to follow along with. If you love fantasy and sci-fi ish type books, you have got to follow her!

4. @lottelikesbooks

Lotte is a university student from Berlin whose account is just droolworthy. I love her eclectic reading taste and always find good recommendations from her whether it’s YA or adult fiction.

5. @bookvibes

This account is another dreamy one that makes me want to just curl right up with a book! Rebecca is super talented!!

6. @foldedpagesdistillery
Oh man, Hikari’s styled and themed shots are GORGEOUS and unparalled. You can tell she puts so much thought into them and I can tell even more so, when she does a shoot for a book I read, because she puts these small details that relate to the book so much.

7. @sapphire.reads

Another great account for the reader who reads a little bit of everything which is why I love Vic’s account so much! Plus I know I can immediately pick her photo out in my feed without looking at the name! Her aesthetic is unique from a lot in my feed and I enjoy it plus I love when she tweaks her theme a bit.

great bookstagram accounts

8. @seelieknight

If I HAD to pick just one favorite it’s this feed! It’s just so gorgeous and not only do I drool over her bookish photos, I have major hair and style envy and want to go exploring with her to whatever outdoor location she goes to next. If there was ever an instagram that made me want to be friends with someone it’s Viktoria’s. She’s got a beautiful mixture of cozy indoor photos and GORGEOUS photos set outdoors. It took me FOREVER just to decide which pictures of hers to feature because they are all my favorites.

beautiful book pictures

9. @mizgillianberry

I think one of my dear friend and fellow blogger Gillian’s account is gorgeous and underrated. Love her Funko collection plus she also mixes in droolworthy desserts, her cute pup, her artwork and beautiful bookshelves — her own and ones she encounters in her travels.

10. @insidethebookreader

If you drool over books and travel pictures, this account is 100% for you. I looooove Calista’s photos so much and if I haven’t seen a post from her in a while I will specifically go TO her feed to see what I’ve missed! Her photography and style is beautiful!!

instagram accounts for books and travel

So tell me…are there any bookstagram accounts you think, based on my favorites, that I should follow???

Her photos are so pretty, and feel so effortless. I love the way she edits them too.
