I spend probably way too much time over there chatting, networking, drooling, gawking at gorgeous photos… So when you start putting reading into the mix, I can go down the Instagram rabbit hole for a while! If you are an avid reader, you need to see some of my absolute favorite accounts on Insta. Prepare to hit that follow button because some of these accounts are a book lover’s dream!

"We are of the opinion that instead of letting books grow moldy behind iron grating, far from the vulgar gaze, it is better to let them wear out by being read." -Jules Verne

BooksInTheWild has some of the most gorgeous photos I’ve ever seen. Sometimes she tells you about the books themselves, other times she includes magical quotes or a note along with her stunning images. She brings new life to “have book, will travel” as she posts her books with stunning views!


Though I am firmly on the A side of YA, there are many books in the young adult category I enjoy. I might be a bit of a dystopian fiction addict at times. If you are a fan too, then @epicreads should be in your Insta feed because they always seem to have the next great read I should get my hands on!


@subwaybookreview is kind of like striking up a conversation with the person next to you about what they are reading. The best part is there is now awkward interactions, and you won’t find out the book is actually “The History of Slugs and Snails,” well unless it really is a good book about slugs and snails I suppose. Anyways this page is real people, real reviews but conversational and quite fun!


Need another good reason to curl up in a cozy chair? @the.blonde.bookworm always makes me want to do exactly that. Her picks are a mix of new and classic titles, and the photo shots are always fun. She’s introduced me to a few titles I would have otherwise missed!

She wanted to die, but she also wanted to live in Paris. Gustave Flaubert, Madame Bovary * * What better occupation, really, than to spend the evening at the fireside with a book, with the wind beating on the windows and the lamp burning bright…Haven't you ever happened to come across in a book some vague notion that you've had, some obscure idea that returns from afar and that seems to express completely your most subtle feelings? Gustave Flaubert, Madame Bovary * * what we call our despair is often only the painful eagerness of unfed hope. George Eliot, Middlemarch * * Sharing some of the lovely Penguin Clothbounds in my collection. Not feeling great today so I'll let the quotes speak for me instead. Enjoy your day.

The very first thing you notice about @booksugar is the color! This account has some images that are going to make ANY book lover feel happy. I can almost feel the book jumping into my hand, not that I mind because then their are more reads for me! Can I just dive into her shelves? She makes “judging a book by its cover” so easy, they all look amazing!


@sobookinggood not only inspires me with all of the literary choices, she always seems to have some kind of book challenge running. While I could read all day, having a plan certainly gets me excited about the next read too! This account always has me scribbling down another title to add to my reading list.


@ednhammond may be run by an 18-year-old and does she ever know how to make fun photos. I love her use of color and the cute Pop Funko characters that make an appearance in most of her shots. I’m always looking for her next “shelfie.”


Pensive with a touch of darkness, @clumsy.words is a show stopper with her beautiful images and thoughtful captions. The quotes picked always really speak to me!


Grab a cup of coffee or tea for this feed, at least that’s exactly what I want to do every time I see this feed. I literally feel like I can just slip into the screen, curl up in the spot, and open up the book featured.
