If you’re anything like me, you’ll love nothing more than idling away a morning perusing the pages of your favourite Bookstagram accounts. Those daily shares in little squares have become something of an addiction for many of us, and there’s a thriving book loving community on the photo sharing platform. Whether you’re after a reading recommendation, some bookish inspiration for your next Instagram pic, or simply a place to chat all things literary, few places do it quite like Instagram. And if you’re looking for some picture perfect Bookstagram accounts to follow – from the cool to the cosy and everything in between – read on for ten of my very favourites.
Owner of probably the most picturesque home on Instagram, The Slow Traveller’s beautiful feed perfectly fuses books with slow travel. She regularly features stunning stacks of books flanked by bright indoor plants, and her Bookstagram account is an envy-inducing and beautiful palette of nudes and greens.
If you’re looking for a combination of beautiful books and inspirational travel and lifestyle, What’s Hot Blog is the account for you. An Oxford grad with a penchant for pretty pictures, Laura shares everything from picturesque Parisian architecture (she spent a year living in the so-called City of Light) to stunning shelfies and cosy bed and book pics.
Founded by Poppy from London lifestyle blog Poppy Loves, this Bookstagram account offers followers the chance to join in with the Poppy Loves online bookclub and shares a series of stunning literary pics – from beautiful bookshops to snug reading nooks. The ultimate account for book lovers’ – wherever in the world you’re based.
If florals are your thang and you’re after some cosy reading inspo, Cate Butler’s feed is for you. Featuring in-depth book reviews on everything from classic tomes to contemporary tales, picture perfect piles of books and fresh flowers, Cate’s feed is a dreamy destination for bookworms.
Is there anything more literary than a Parisian-based bookworm? With a crisp clean and predominantly white feed that offers followers a glimpse into the life of a book lover living in Paris, Clara’s feed further fuels my love for a city so synonymous with literature.
Book blogger turned YA author (Margot’s debut novel Neverland was published today) Project Lectito is one of my very favourite Bookstagram accounts. Sharing recent reads and inspiring insights into her journey from book blogger to published author, you can also find out more about her favourite Bookstagram accounts over on her blog.
I’ve been a fan of Elle’s ever since I first found her account many moons ago, and love nothing more than scrolling through her stunning feed. The ultimate combination of lattes and literature, her latte art skills are second to none, and her shelfies will give you serious bookcase envy.
If books, baking and slow living sound like your idea of heaven, you’ll love A Bookish Baker’s wonderfully rustic feed. Offering her followers a glimpse into what life is like in the English countryside, complete with hens, ducks and baking-aplenty, Helen’s feed is quintessential Britain at its very best.
A Bookstagram account that gives the term creative a whole new lease of life, Bookish Bronte is my go-to account when I’m looking for something whimsical and fun. Her Instagram stories offer followers a step by step guide on how she creates her images, and I can only imagine the amount of work that goes into the styling, shooting and editing of each and every one.
You know those Bookstagram accounts whose sheets are perfectly creased for the all important flatlays, and whose lighting and feel is so on point that you know as soon as you see a picture that it belongs to them? The Halcyon Days of Summer’s feed is exactly that. Peruse through her pretty pictures if you’re looking for some literary inspiration for your next best read.
