7 Bookstagrammers That Will Make Your Feed More Beautiful
By Summer Webb
Do you ever browse your explore page on Instagram and wonder why you’ll never have an aesthetic as great as the accounts you find there? You do? Phew, glad it isn’t just me.
During one of my deep dives on my explore page, I began realizing that a large chunk of the accounts that were being shown to me were all twenty something white girls with cute outfits and even cuter bedrooms. This isn’t a bad thing per se, but it did make me realize that I should make more of an effort to support a more diverse group of ladies and so a follow spree ensued! That being said, I compiled a list of my absolute favorite diverse bloggers. Check out the list below!
Olivia Paez || @storiesforcoffee
Oh Liv. One of the very first bookish accounts that I ever followed. Olivia’s photos are not only some of the moodiest photos that I have ever seen but they inspire such museum lust in me. I just want to walk the halls of the MET and take cute photos with my friends. Alas, Ill never be quite as cute as she is. Oh, did I mention that she is also basically a mini Martha Stewart? Her food and fiction series that pairs your favorite books with your next favorite dessert is what dreams are made of. That being said, my current favorite series of Olivia’s is her #RetroRetakes where she takes retro photos and recreates them!
Deja || @cityofdeja
Deja!!! This lovely lady is part of the book club, @bibliophileacademy on Instagram and is one of the kindest people you will ever meet! I love her passion for all things romance and Stephanie Perkins! She is always someone to lend an encouraging word and has the most positive outlook on life! It is so refreshing to see that on my Instagram feed! PLUS she takes the most dreamy photos of Funko Pop Vinyl’s that you’ve ever seen! Just check this one out.
Nkisu || @hoarding.chapters
I don’t even feel like I need to give you guys a reason to follow Nkisu because her account speaks for itself! I first followed her a few months ago because I loved how light and bright her feed was but she recently started doing cosplay photos and I totally LOST MY MIND over them! She recreated Zelie from Children of Blood and Bone and KILT IT. Seriously, she slayed and I have never been more shook. Don’t believe me? See for yourself.
Omarni || @marnireads
Travel goals, anyone? Every. Single. Time. I look at Marni’s feed I get such wanderlust. She is currently studying in Sweden and spending what seems like every weekend on some glamorous getaway to a different country. Not only does she travel to all of these fantastic destinations every weekend but she also takes the dopest photos!!!! I don’t know when she finds time to sleep, but I appreciate her dedication to getting THE shot. Like when she climbed a bajillion stairs just to take this photo!
Kat || @notthepathtonarnia
Have you ever met someone and instantly clicked? That is what happened when I met Kat last year. We met for dinner at a restaurant in Florida and ended up talking for so long that the restaurant closed and we had to move outside! She is one of the most creative and interesting people that I have ever met and im so lucky to call her a friend. Also totally jealous that she gets to live so close to Hogwarts AND Disney world. UGH. Some people have it all.
Amanda Joy || @amandajoywrites
OKAY SO EXCITING NEWS. I started following this lady on tumblr many moons ago and now she is going to be a PUBLISHED AUTHOR!!! How frickin cool is that? I have been anticipating her book ever since I first learned the title… because I mean… it’s literally going to be called A RIVER OF ROYAL BLOOD. I am so ready for this to totally fuck me up in all the best ways. But in the meantime, I will continue to cry every time I see her perfect photos. I mean, how whimsical is her feed? CAN I LIVE IN HER BEDROOM???
Alexandra || @twirlingpages
Oh Alexandra. The only person on the planet who loves The Darkest Minds as much as I do. Not only is her account gorgeous, but so is she! One of the absolute cutest ladies on Instagram, and also one of the kindest! Also super jealous of all of the traveling she gets to do but no one deserves it more than her! Uhm, also look how cute her room is!!!!
