I love Bookstagram, but I never have enough time to sit through and properly scroll through my news feed. I’m also a terrible Bookstagrammer, mainly because my phone sucks and I don’t have a proper camera, so my photos are few and far in between. That being said, there are some people on Bookstagram I absolutely adore, and I’m going to share them – and some of their awesomeness – with you today. If you love as much as I do, I highly recommend giving them a follow!
Because rainbow books are the prettiest of ever and this is a FACT. • Tag: #lineofbooks from @nellieand_co and #booksaroundtherainbow from @happyindulgence (thankyou <3) • #bookstagram #bookworm #bookphotography #bibliophile #booklover #bookaddict #ireadya #instareads #rainbow #bookishspinebeauty #book #bookblogger #rainbowbooks #instabook #reader #bookandflower
If you haven’t found Cait’s amazing instagram yet, then I don’t know what you’re doing with your life. Cait gives me total photo envy – every one of her photos are perfection, and on top of that she’s completely amazing and down to earth (read: she’s a big book nerd at heart, just like the rest of us!) and always seems to say what I’m thinking. Her book collection is on point too!

Taneika and I have such a similar taste and thought in books it’s scary! Aside from being a wonderful West Aussie and generally awesome in general, Taneika’s Bookstagram is what got me started. Her photos are divine, and she does it all through her phone camera and they still come out looking absolutely gorgeous! I love hearing what she has to say about books as well, and my TBR pile is always growing from her recommendations!

I absolutely adore Kat’s photos. I don’t know a lot about photography and filters, but I love whatever Kat does with hers. Photos like the one above, where she combines quotes and books are my favourite.

Another person who has such a beautiful bookstagram account! I love the softness of Casey’s photos, they’re so gorgeous. And she’s also West Australian, I believe, which is awesome enough!
#celineannajillmarch16 | bookish reflection ✨ i’m reusing a different angle of an old photo (because i failed to take pics once again, whoops 😂). i promise i’ll take some tomorrow… · on another note, i managed to buy 1) a pair of shorts 2) a candle 3) a candle holder 4) a wooden crate, and 5) a mug from @bookwormboutique all in the past day and a half… help i have a shopping problem 😂 (although let’s be real, it’s partially bookstagram’s fault… i bought 4/5 things mostly because i want to take pictures of them 😖 ugh what has my life come to 😂 i should stop spending…. butbutbut AESTHETICS. there’s also that tiny part of my brain that’s just like *books! books! books!* and all of me that’s like *props! candles! mugs! lights!* and i CANT HAVE BOTH BUT I WANT IT ALL IM SO BROKE HELP). · okay wow there was no coherent thought to the caption, but you know what, we’re gonna role with my mini rant/whatever that was (because i’m sure you can all relate 😋) ·

Talk about stunning! I could stare at Anna’s photos all day. I love the way she uses pastels (especially in this photo!). There’s something feminine and so beautiful about her photos.
Ella’s bookstagram is simple but really eye catching. I love the way she uses a white background to make her books really stand out.
DAY 12 of the #AusYAChallenge sees a book set in the future. The Starbound Trilogy by @amiekaufmanauthor and #meaganspooner needs no introduction. BUY IT. LOVE IT. LICK THE COVERS. These girls are killing it. I’d read their shopping lists quite frankly #loveozya #biblophile #auslit #books #booknerdigans #bookstagram #coverlove #yascifi #scifi #instabook #booktography #igbooks #igreads #read #reading #bestbooks #favoriteread #amiekaufman #spaceopera #booksinspace #ozya #yareads #ireadya @allenandunwin

Kelly deserves a place on my list for the sheer fact that I have no idea how she manages to get her black and white photos to have that colour pop, and she always does it in such a striking way too!
Two books that I STILL haven’t read, despite having them on my shelves. 🙃 Crazy, right?! Well, good news!! I’m finally starting The Sky is Everywhere!! ☀️ I’ll be buddy reading this with @jenniferwindram & @_livelaughread! I’m excited to finally be reading it!! And buddy reading makes every book more fun. 🤗 . Have you read I’ll Give You the Sun and/or The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson? What did you think? ☺️ . #illgiveyouthesun #theskyiseverywhere #jandynelson

I’ve been following Lisa’s bookstagram for a long time (read: stalking), and I adore her photos. Even though there’s a lot going on in them aside from showcasing the books, she always manages to make them look so beautiful and striking. And I love the way she uses those flowers too!

Emily’s another bookstagrammer who always seems to have the most beautiful flowers on hand! Her photos are so colourful and bright.
Day 6 of #decemberbpc2015 – Beautiful edition/cover buy. The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough was a complete cover buy but it sounds like a great story, too: “Love and Death choose their players in an eternal game. Death has never lost and Love will do anything to win. Henry and Flora find each other, not knowing they are the players. Can their love be enough to keep them both alive?” I read the first few chapters and really liked the elements of magical realism, it reminded me of The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender a bit (and I absolutely loved that book), so my hopes are really high for this one! Have you read it? ☺

I love how understated Paula’s photos are. She always has fantastic backgrounds but the main focus is the book, and it’s never over the top too.
Do you have a Bookstagram, or follow someone on Bookstagram that I should know about? Let me know in the comments!
