Top Ten Tuesday – April 5, 2016: Top Bookish Accounts to Follow on Instagram


April 5, 2016

It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic was Ten Bookish People You Should Follow On Twitter/Instagram/Youtube/Snapchat/Facebook

I’m on Twitter a lot (A LOT) but I don’t really know who to recommend to follow as a good Twitter “personality”. I could tell you to go follow all of my friends but that’s a looot of people! So I opted to go with Instagram instead and do some shoutouts of some of my favorite accounts! It’s so hard to keep track so I’m sure I’m missing some and I’m also going to try to include accounts of varying “popularity” since I could probably recommend some beautiful accounts that you’re already following anyway! (Oh, and this is way more than ten!)


These are some of my all-time favorite book photographers! Their photos are amazingly beautiful and I’m constantly amazed by their composition, technique, and creativity! The “big-timers” are the bookstagrammers who have tons and tons of followers (and rightfully so) and you definitely need to be following them if you’re not already! (In no particular order…)

These accounts are some of my bookish friends who also blog and they take some amazing photos! Some of these accounts have followers into 10k and 20k (and beyond!!) so they can definitely qualify as some major bookstagram accounts but since I had so many of those already, I’m grouping them with blogger friends! (The grouping is totally irrelevant but you know. In case you want to follow their blogs too!) They’re all lovely people and they take some amazing pictures!!

Some of my favorite bookish shops also have gorgeous instagram accounts — plus, they update all the time with new items and sales!


Last but not least, I’m always following my favorite publishing teams and authors! Erin Bowman takes some absolutely beautiful photos and these publishing accounts always have great shots of their books!


Lastly, if you love posting book photos but need help with themes, check out these photos challenges! They’re always so much fun and there are so many out there that you can easily find one to fit your bookstagram needs!

Which of these accounts are your favorites? Any other fantastic Instagram accounts that I need to be following?? What other photo challenges do you participate in? And don’t forget to stop by my Instagram account to say hello!! 😀

    Wow, this list is fantastic. I am going to be spending half of the day on Instagram staring at all these amazing photos, and I don’t even mind, it’s a great way to spend a cold snowy day. Thanks so much for listing so many.

    I found this to be such a difficult topic this week! I started trying to narrow it down but then realized I couldn’t. There are just too many amazing people out there doing such great work and then all my bookish friends. hahah!

    Thank you so much for linking my account in this post! 😀 My two very favorite bookstagram accounts are @twirlingpages and @blueyedbiblio, and I also made a list of my favorite Instagram accounts for my TTT. I love this and it looks like there’s a ton accounts I’ll be following from this list!
