Books·Posted on Sep 24, 2021Here Are 25 Bookstagrammers Who Can Help Find Your Next Read Just In Time For Cozy SeasonSo many different aesthetics and genres that you'll want to follow them all!by Farrah PennBuzzFeed Staff WriterFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink 1. John from @johns.tainted.fantasy @johnstaintedfantasy / Via instagram.com About me: I’m a devoted lover of the arts. My interests range from film and literature to live music, stage productions, and the culinary arts. Having grown up and living in the cultural melting pot that is Puerto Rico, I’ve always gravitated toward the works that show the passion and drive of not only myself but the people around me. As a member of not only the queer community but also being a POC, many see me as a social justice warrior and an ally to all.What followers can expect: Followers can expect a lot of highlighting of indie and local authors. I like to showcase the upcoming writers who are starting out and need reviews, and promo. They can also expect honest reviews. But I also encourage others to read them and form their own opinions; a book I don’t like could probably be a book another reader loves, and vice versa. But above all, they can expect a lot of support. A recent book I enjoyed: A recent book I read and enjoyed was Tia Lugo Speaks No Evil by Danette Vigilante. I honestly enjoyed this one. It’s very much a la “respect your roots and culture” but also, learn, grow, and make them yours. I kept thinking about my grandma the entire read, how many things she would do for me and how she would keep me safe. I loved it! 2. Natalya from @thebookishletters @thebookishletters / Via Instagram: @thebookishletters About me: I was born and raised in Puerto Rico and recently moved to New York. I started my bookstagram account as a hobby and a way to connect with other bookworms. Never did I imagine that I would meet some of the most amazing people I now call friends. Other than reading, I love traveling, watching the same rom-coms on repeat, and anything Harry Styles adjacent.What followers can expect: Cat pics! It’s my cat Paulina’s world, and I’m just living in it. But really you can expect reviews and book recommendations ranging from YA to contemporary fiction. I love to read fantasy, romance, historical fiction, and anything by a Latinx author. I’m actively trying to be conscious about the representation I read in my books.A recent book I enjoyed: A Lot Like Adiós by Alexis Daria. I loved it so much. It’s not often I get to read one of my favorite genres and see myself and my culture represented in the main characters. I loved seeing the Latinxrepresentation, the family dynamics and relationships that reminded me of my family, and the spicy romance of course! 3. Paris from @parisperusing @parisperusing / Via instagram.com About me: I’m a Black queer reading enthusiast from Michigan with a passion for books, writing, and (as a new obsession) plants. I am also the owner of the book community-driven website, Paperback Paris, where I lead a small team of contributors and editors in producing bookish content — from book reviews, new book lists, author interviews, and more. My favorite book of all time has to be Brandon Taylor’s Real Life, a life-changing love letter to Black queer boys everywhere; I cherish it immensely.What followers can expect: Lots of books, of course, but more than that, I’ve curated my account to be a safe space for discourse on mental health (#MentalHealthMonday) and joy and where the concerns and feelings of Black, Indigenous, and people of color are central and centered.A recent book I enjoyed: After Robert Jones Jr.’s The Prophets and Akwaeke Emezi’s Dear Senthuran, Brian Broome’s Punch Me Up to the Gods is incomparably the most unsparing book I’ve read this year yet. It is a real hero, a total lifesaver. 4. Emily from @midwestbookqueen @midwestbookqueen / Via instagram.com About me: Hi! I'm Emily, otherwise known as the Midwest Book Queen! I was born and raised in North Dakota and currently live in northern Minnesota. I've been an avid reader all my life, and I love going to my local library and curling up in my chair to read a good book in one sitting.What followers can expect: My account is about reading for fun and reading what YOU want to read. I read a mixture of genres and like to keep things fresh with reviews of new releases, old favorites, and classics. I also love the aesthetic side of bookstagram, so expect lots of pretty photos of coffee shop and bookstore visits, library hauls, and my home!A recent book I enjoyed: One of the books I read this year that I still think about all the time is Sweetbitter by Stephanie Danler. I've read upward of 50 books this year, and this one still sticks out as a favorite! Coming-of-age stories are some of my favorite to read, and Tess is definitely still figuring things out after her move to New York. It transported me into a life in New York City so different from mine, but maybe a life I will live in another life. The food, the wine, the late nights, the drama...I loved it! 5. Caro from @sanjariti @sanjariti / Via instagram.com About me: My name is Carolina, but you can call me Caro! I am a bisexual, nonbinary Mexican American living in Chicago. I fell in love with reading in third grade but hadn’t read a single book for leisure since high school. I rediscovered my love for reading two years ago when I found myself having a lot of time to read on my commute on the L, so I picked up the habit again!What followers can expect: You can expect honest reviews, diverse recommendations, and (my attempts at) aesthetic photos and funny reels! I love reading YA and adult romance, science fiction, fantasy, and contemporary fiction. When you look at my page, you’ll see I showcase stories from BIPOC authors, including writers of the Latinx diaspora. I also share a bit of my non-reading life — my mental health journey, Squishmallow collection, and my Marvel obsession. I’m grateful that my account has not only been a creative outlet, but also a space to build community and make genuine friendships!A recent book I enjoyed: I recently read Zoraida Córdova’s adult debut, The Inheritance of Orquídea Divina, which was such a fantastic novel. I highly recommend it, especially if you’re a fan of family secrets and magical realism. The Inheritance of Orquídea Divina is unlike any other fiction novel I’ve read, and really sets Zoraida apart from other authors. She thrusts you straight into the life of Orquídea and her grandchildren, with little explanation, but you figure it out as the story progresses. Córdova has weaved together a story about strong women, vulnerability, resentment, and loss, and every word wholeheartedly resonated with me. Orquídea is a gritty, resilient, and beautiful woman with a wonderful family, and Zoraida’s stellar writing truly brought them to life. 6. Ramlah from @inked.thoughts__ inked thoughts / Via instagram.com About me: I’ve been reading almost all my life, which inspired me to take up writing as a hobby a few years ago, and I’m currently working on a novel. I’m obsessed with the Marvel universe, autumn is my favorite season, and I’m an absolute nerd for TV shows. New adult romance has been my favorite genre to read recently.What followers can expect: My account is a safe space for all book lovers where I post relatable bookish content and occasionally obsess over a new book! I also love recommending books from various genres. It’s a place I want my followers to feel happy and content browsing through.A recent book I enjoyed: A recent book I enjoyed would definitely be The Spanish Love Deception by Elena Armas, and I’d say pretty much everyone who follows me knows that, based on how much I talk about it! This was an adorable, funny rom-com, and I COULD. NOT. GET. ENOUGH. Aaron is the blueprint for a perfect guy, and the banter and tension between the both of them hits the roof with every chapter. 7. Munazza from @munireads @munireads / Via instagram.com About me: I'm Munazza, a book lover originally from Bangladesh, and a recent transplant from New York City to Toronto. I'm a product manager at a tech company, and in my free time I love to read, experiment with recipes, and take long city walks. I'm also an active foster of rescue cats and kittens and have fostered 15-plus feline babies over the past year!What followers can expect: Mostly novels! My favorites are historical and contemporary fiction, but I also love to read political nonfiction and food memoirs. Lately, I’ve been getting into cookbooks and challenging myself to work my way through them, inspired by the movie Julie and Julia. I read widely and diversely, and I often feature books by South Asian authors. I take my books on walks with me around the city, so you’ll find tons of photos of street corners and colorful walls, as well as photos of my adorable foster kittens!A recent book I loved: One of the most memorable books I read this year was Black Buck by Mateo Askaripour. It’s about a young man from Bed-Stuy who finds himself working for a tech startup and rising rapidly through the ranks. It’s a funny, witty, satirical story that I deeply enjoyed and would recommend to everyone! 8. Aviva from @vivibookshelf @vivibookshelf / Via instagram.com About me: My name is Aviva (it’s a palindrome), and I’m an early childhood educator, proud Jamaican, and music lover. Besides reading, in my free time I love to crochet.What followers can expect: My bookstagram account is very diverse; I’ll read anything that sounds interesting. I’m a big fan of audiobooks, so expect to see a lot of that on my page.A recent book I enjoyed: I read When Stars Rain Down earlier this year, and I’m still talking about it. There’s a 100% chance that I’ve recommended this book to everyone I’ve come in contact with. t’s a powerful story about family, love, perseverance, and growing up Black in the early 1900s in America. 9. Jess from @qweerjessreads @qweerjessreads / Via instagram.com About me: Hi, I'm Jess, and I'm a 27-year-old book lover sharing my thoughts about the books I read like the true Virgo rising that I am. When I'm not reading or working (#RTstrong), I'm drinking coffee and playing the Nintendo Switch. I'm an enthusiast for all things warm, cozy, and fall-themed.What followers can expect: I talk a lot about queer books. You can expect a collection of reviews, open questions, and personal thought purges about my book journey. I love sapphic romance and fantasy books the most, but I try out books from other genres to make sure I don’t miss any amazing queer stories. I aim for my page to feel like a relaxing step away, if only for a second.A recent book I enjoyed: It's not recent, but it's a book that I think about at LEAST three times a day: The Jasmine Throne by Tasha Suri. A million out of five stars! The Jasmine Throne is an adult high fantasy book with two sapphic main characters that I will NEVER stop recommending. It’s my favorite book and reminded me of why I love reading in the first place. 10. Jamie from @poursandpages @poursandpages / Via instagram.com About me: I’m originally from Detroit and graduated from Michigan before going to Alabama for law school. I’m now a litigation attorney in Charlotte, North Carolina, who tries to squeeze reading in around billable hours. Other interests include watching Love Island UK with my husband Ben (aka Mr. Pours), taking my dog Mozzie on iced coffee runs in memory of his brother Wilson (one of his favorite things to do with me), and buying too many metal water bottles.What followers can expect: I like to underpromise and overdeliver when it comes to bookstagram, so I don’t want anyone to really expect anything from my account. But what I CAN promise is that you’ll always get authenticity, whether it’s about the books I’m reading, social justice movements I’m supporting, the coffee I’m drinking, or what I’m writing in my newsletter. For better or worse — and it’s definitely for worse sometimes.A recent book I enjoyed: The Final Revival of Opal & Nev — my favorite book of the year so far. It’s Daisy Jones but better. I am truly jealous of anyone who hasn’t read this book yet, because you get to experience it for the first time. Soak it all in, and enjoy it. Maybe immersive read it if you can. This book is a beautiful example of why I read. 11. Kenzie from @kenzienoelle.reads Kenzie Noelle Reads / Via instagram.com About me: What’s up! I’m Kenzie, a curly haired, 28-year-old book lover. I started my bookstagram because I started dealing with some health issues, and books and audiobooks were how I spent a lot of my time. I wanted a place to talk about the books I was reading with book friends and meet kindred book spirits!What followers can expect: Followers can expect 100% honest book reviews, colorful bookish pictures, and maybe even a reel or two if I’m feeling spicy! I read a lot of backlist books because brand-new releases can be expensive! I love a used bookstore. My favorite genres to read are mystery/thriller, nonfiction, and historical fiction, but I’ve also been dipping my toes into the world of sci-fi recently. I’ve never considered myself a particularly creative person, but bookstagram has become my creative outlet, and I love that!A recent book I enjoyed: OK, speaking of sci-fi, I have to pick a book I finished recently and that I LOVED: Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir. I think it’s best to go into this book knowing the least amount possible. Science teacher Ryland Grace wakes up not knowing where he is or who he is…and the adventure begins! This book was phenomenal in every way! Oh, how I love the deep sarcasm of Andy Weir’s writing. I laughed out loud multiple times, and if I was someone who cried reading books, I may have shed some tears. This was, bar none, the best audiobook I have EVER listened to. The narrator was brilliant and fantastic at comedic timing (also other reasons, but I don’t want to give anything away!). 12. Morgan from @justonemorepage_ @justonemorepage_ / Via instagram.com About me: I am a 29-year-old living in Nova Scotia, Canada. I have a cat named Tim, who is 15 years old, and I am absolutely obsessed with him. I've loved books ever since I was younger and watched the movie Matilda. I thought if I read enough books, I could grow powers just like her, but instead I fell in love with reading!What followers can expect: You'll mostly find thrillers and crime fiction books on my page, but I've been known to also read horror and fantasy. Followers can always expect 100% honest reviews from me, whether I loved or disliked a book! I always participate in #ThrillerThursday; I love featuring different bookstacks and showing my weekly TBRs. You might come for the book content, but you'll probably stay for Tim.A recent book I enjoyed: The most recent book that I enjoyed is Blacktop Wasteland by S.A. Cosby. This is one of those books that once you start, you cannot stop. It was fast paced, incredibly action packed, and the character development was spectacular. 13. Michelle from @frenchpages @frenchpages / Via instagram.com About me: My name is Michelle French (she/her/hers), and I am 33 years old. I was born and raised in San Jose, California. I’m Jewish, a Taurus, and I’ve been a book addict since before I can remember. I’ve been a hairstylist for the past 13 years, and I’m currently in the process of getting my bachelor’s degree from San Jose State University in Human Resources Management.What followers can expect: When followers come to my page, they can expect to see all things bookish. I’m all about diversifying my shelves. People can expect to see a lot of books from BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ authors. I incorporate both book reviews and themed book photos with seasonal aesthetics. I read mostly fantasy but have recently started incorporating more contemporary fiction, romance, and mystery into my reading as well. I also love supporting small businesses; my followers can expect to see a lot of bookish merchandise in my flat lay photos. Overall, I strive to have an inclusive, safe, and fun feed for everyone.A recent book I enjoyed: A recent book that really wowed me was Ace of Spades by Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé. It was a thrilling story with unexpected plot twists that had me on the edge of my seat. I could not put it down. If you enjoyed One of Us Is Lying and/or Get Out, then I would highly recommend this book. 14. Reneé from @rensbookishspace @rensbookishspace / Via instagram.com About me: Hi, I’m Reneé, a Jamaican girl living in a bookstagram world. As a pharmacist, books, laughter, and dancing are my preferred drugs. Dubbed “a firecracker in a small package,” I’m usually the life of the party (or the bookclub these days). What followers can expect: Books! Lots of them. From book recommendations to book reviews to what I’m currently reading. I like to think that my account matches my personality, which is fun and vibrant. So expect bright colorful book photos that often showcase the beauty of my little island. I also show bits of my non-reading life, especially in stories. I love crime-based books, so you’ll see a lot of thrillers and murder mysteries with some contemporary fiction in between. Family drama in a book — I’m all in!A recent book I enjoyed: Earlier this year, I read How the One-Armed Sister Sweeps Her House, and it has stuck with me. The name alone is memorable. Set in the beautiful island of Barbados, it tells a story of what lies beyond the white sand beaches and wealthy tourists. It speaks of crime, poverty, and the sacrifices some women have to make to survive. There are some heavy-hitting topics covered, but it's a compelling story of lives defined by generational trauma. 15. Zakiyya from @thebookishnerd @thebookishnerd / Via instagram.com About me: Hi! I'm Zakiyya, a South African bookworm addicted to large cups of tea. I am also a Speech-Language Pathology student and a small business owner. At any given moment, you can find me at my desk, reading in bed, or whipping up something sweet in the kitchen. I am an ambivert, a middle child, a creative, an optimist — and @thebookisnerd is where I share it all. It's lovely to meet you!What followers can expect: At @thebookishnerd, you will find pretty pictures of books that hopefully give you the urge to get cozy with a blanket, something warm to drink, and a page-turner. I share honest reviews about the books I read, often talking about how each book made me feel. I love sharing mini reviews, which allow you to decide whether a book is up your alley or not from a single Instagram story. My favorite kinds of books are feel-good ones with witty humor and a little bit of romance (always a little bit of romance!). Although my taste in books and reading habits have diversified greatly since starting bookstagram, I make it a point to try to read more widely every year. I sometimes forget my account; it's open for the world to view and end up treating it like a personal diary, letting my thoughts spill out, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. In fact, I often picture a 60-year-old Zakiyya sharing shaky pictures of books on an app that no one uses anymore.A recent book I enjoyed: A recent five-star read for me was How I Accidentally Became a Global Stock Photo and Other Strange and Wonderful Stories by Shubnum Khan. The book is written by a South African author and reads as part memoir, part travelogue. It is sharp, quick-witted, and beautifully written. The author speaks about the experience of being brown, Indian, South African, Muslim, and a woman in this world without destroying the light, gentle feel of the book. It is funny, honest, and vulnerable in a way that makes you feel comfortable. The adventures feel tangible because her writing is accessible, which makes you as the reader feel a part of the journey rather than an outsider looking in. It is this exact quality that makes me love this book so much. I imagine that everyone who has read it is connected by these adventures because we've all been on them with Shubnum. Hopeful, hilarious, heartwarming — it will fill you up. 16. Nuha from @books_decoder @books_decoder / Via instagram.com About Me: My name is Nuha, and I'm a senior in high school who absolutely adores having her nose in a book! I'm currently living in Dhaka, Bangladesh, with my family. The first book I ever read was Looking for Alaska by John Green, but All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven is the one that made me fall in love with reading. I genuinely owe this amazing woman for always making me acknowledge my emotions through her writing! When I'm not reading, I can be found crying over my bucket full of assignments or re-watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine for the 244,537th time!What followers can expect: Initially, I created my bookstagram account to vent all my bookish obsessions, as everyone around me would get irritated by my blabbering. I'm ALWAYS ready to become that "someone" for my followers whenever they need me to! I love researching and reading books that are written by authors from different cultures and racial backgrounds; and create recommendations off of them in order to help readers diversify their reading lists. So, basically anyone can have a fun time exploring my page!A recent book I enjoyed: It definitely has to be A Woman Is No Man by Etaf Rum! As a Muslim myself, I often feel skeptical to read books with Muslim main characters because it really hurts seeing some authors fabricate our beliefs and lifestyle in the name of representation. I must appreciate Etaf Rum for pointing out the problematic mindset of the society instead of combining culture and religion. I really, really want to give you a glimpse of this book, but everything I'll say would be an understatement for this masterpiece! So, just read it already! 17. Lora from @questsandcrimes @questsandcrimes / Via instagram.com About me: Hi, I’m Lora! I’m a thirtysomething Midwesterner who loves books: e-book, physical, and audio. I’m always in search of the perfect read while perfecting my at-home bartending skills.What followers can expect: I share fantasy and thriller books. I LOVE spooky season and finding new horror reads. You can also expect the occasional rom-com, aka Quests for Love. Oh, and weekly cocktail recipes!A recent book I enjoyed: A Master of Djinn has not gotten enough attention! The audiobook version is amazing. Great characters, great plot, great setting, it has it all! Early 1900s steampunk Cairo…with magic. Can I live inside P. Djèlí Clark’s brain? A Master of Djinn is a fast-paced fantasy that I could not put down. I loved the characters, I loved the plot, and I LOVED the setting. No notes. 18. Mina from @prismaticpages @prismaticpages / Via instagram.com About me: My name is Mina, and I'm a Chicago transplant from Taiwan, by way of California, just trying to survive in the Frozen Tundra with my husband and two dogs. I currently work as a software engineer for a Chicago consultancy called Tandem, building functional software and development processes for various organizations. I've been a reader all my life and practically raised in bookstores and public libraries. Outside of working and reading, I'm also a long-distance runner with three marathons under my belt and counting.What followers can expect: Followers can expect easy-to-digest and honest reviews, bookstack challenges for and conversations about causes I believe in, and colorful and vibrant photos of books from marginalized voices. There's also a copious amount of gushing about books I love! I'm a fairly genre-agnostic reader (except for horror, because I'm a wimp), so my posts will feature everything from fantasy, to memoirs, to YA, to romance (though I'm new to this one!).A recent book I enjoyed: This is not incredibly "recent," but I had the opportunity to read an ARC of One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston in April (it came out June 1st) and it STOLE MY HEART. I have always loved New York City, and this story of August and Jane and their friends felt like a love letter to NYC. Casey weaved a heartwarming story through the backdrop of one of the greatest cities in the world, while recognizing its imperfections. They took the crowded subway cars, rats in the tunnels, and threats of gentrification, and made them SPARKLE with human emotions. There's a fantastical element that might not be for everyone, but I found it to be beautifully charming! 19. Keeley from @moonlight_bookclub @moonlight_bookclub / Via instagram.com About me: My name is Keeley (she/her), and I’m a twentysomething Minnesotan who adores books and Halloween. I play a lot of roles in my life: higher education administrator, grad student, soon-to-be-bride (October 2021 wedding!), daughter and granddaughter to my amazing mom and grandma, cat lover, and bookstagrammer. I started my bookstagram account a year ago on a complete whim because I thought it sounded like a fun, creative way to share my love of books, and it has been nonstop fun ever since!What followers can expect: A huge part of my account is book art, where I’ll take books and stack them in ways to make shapes or scenes. I love being creative with my posts and am always challenging myself to think of books in new ways, whether that’s turning my books into art, matching an outfit to a cover, or generally just having fun in my photos. I love to weave my personality throughout all my pictures, so you’ll see a lot of cozy scenes, a lot of my cat Norbert, a lot of laughing, and (especially in autumn) a lot of Halloween decor! My favorite genre is thrillers, though I’ll pick up just about anything and am always pushing myself to read outside my comfort zone.A recent book I enjoyed: I cannot stop thinking about The Mary Shelley Club by Goldy Moldavsky. It’s a young adult thriller involving horror movies, secret clubs, and worst fears. I couldn’t put it down while I was reading and loved how it sucks readers into such a fun, spooky ride. Even though I read it this summer, it would be the perfect read for fall! 20. Vici from @vicireads @vicireads / Via instagram.com About me: Hello! I'm Vici. I am Indonesian but currently live in NYC. I am a software engineer during the day, reader at night. I love reading fiction novels, but I try to balance reading nonfiction to be inspired by others. My favorite topic is immigrant stories because I can relate.What followers can expect: I take my books for a walk, literally! My feed is full of book pictures that I take in different locations. I try to find places with meaning or relation to the book; it's either mentioned in the story or how I interpret it. There is always a story behind the story. I also give a mini review of the book. My number-one rule is that I have to read every book that I post.A recent book I enjoyed: Beautiful Country by Qian Julie Wang. This memoir needs to be read and shared. It's beautifully written from the perspective of a 7-year-old undocumented kid on how she sees America as a beautiful country. Wang put the readers in her shoes when her family struggled to put food on the table because they were undocumented, working in sweatshops and trash picking. Her memoir is powerful and authentic. If you're a fan of The Undocumented Americans or Conditional Citizens, I highly recommend Beautiful Country as your next read. 21. Paulina from @acapricornreads @acapricornreads / Via instagram.com About me: My name is Paulina, a twentysomething Vietnamese American. I’m a math teacher by day and am trying to stay a reader by night! I’m from the DC Metro area and have loved reading for as long as I can remember. I started my bookinsta on a whim at the very end of 2019 to connect with more readers! What followers can expect: You can expect lots of diverse reads on my page. I try to spotlight reads that are less seen and that provide representation for marginalized groups. While I do read to escape, I also read to learn, so I don’t stray away from reading books with heavier themes. You’ll also see a lot of young adult fiction on my page as well as historical fiction and memoirs. My stories will feature more personal/life aspects and sometimes long rants. I try to keep it authentic on my account! A recent book I enjoyed: I will never stop raving about The Mountains Sing by Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai. I never feel like I can do it justice no matter how much I gush about it. It follows the matriarch of a Vietnamese family as they endure war, famine, political unrest, and upheaval. It’s such an intimate account of shared experiences for many Vietnamese women and families. It reduced me to tears at many points while also marveling at the characters’ resilience. 22. Kat from @occasionalenthusiast @occasionalenthusiast / Via instagram.com About me: My name is Kat, and I am a first-generation Filipino American with a great fondness for books, plants, and dogs.What followers can expect: Short, digestible reviews and lots of plant and Bandit (my dog) photos!A recent book I enjoyed: My most recent five-star read is Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley. Review to come, but wow. (Full disclaimer: That might be my full review. Just read it.) 23. Abby from @abbysbookadventure @abbysbookadventure / Via instagram.com About me: I'm a theatre major turned MBA now working in product marketing on Hot Wheels Monster Trucks. The most consistent thing through my life and career is my love of storytelling, which is why I love to read so much. I especially enjoy sharing my love of books with anyone who will listen, and I feel so lucky to have found the magical corner of the internet known as bookstagram! What followers can expect: Gorgeous beach views, honest opinions, and a wide range of diverse reads! My absolute favorite thing in the world is reading on the beach, and I'm lucky that Los Angeles provides a stunning backdrop for my recent reads and reviews. I'm primarily a fiction reader and have eclectic tastes, from fantasy to historical fiction to YA and anything in between. The characters and story are what matter most to me. I will always tell you honestly what I think, whether I'm obsessing over something (such as my love for the audiobook of Mary Jane or my favorite read of the year, Legendborn) or not as into a popular read (I'm always here for an "unpopular opinion" or a hilariously honest "rage review"). I love that we all have different opinions and that a book that didn't work for me might be someone else's favorite or vice versa — that's what makes bookstagram so fun!A recent book I enjoyed: I have recently been obsessed with the series A Good Girl's Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson. Veronica Mars was my favorite TV show when I was younger, and this brings back all those badass teen detective vibes combined with the podcast Serial. Not only do I love Pip, but the mystery, twists, and all the details are SO well done. I read the first two within a few weeks of each other and loved the second, Good Girl, Bad Blood, even more than the first. I'm SO excited for the third and final book! 24. Julietta from @yourstrulyjulietta @yourstrulyjulietta / Via instagram.com About me: My name is Julietta, but you can call me Julie or Jules; I'm a 21-year-old psychology student, a proud Muslim, and an Indonesian. I've read books since I was in elementary school, and my all-time favorite genre is fantasy. I made my bookstagram account back in December 2019 but just started being active there in November 2020 because I need some place to express my love for books and to interact with book lovers from other countries. What followers can expect: My bookstagram is like my digital reading journal. Within my account you can find book reviews, book aesthetic edits (the book or the characters from the book), book journal spreads, and a dark academia theme in my feed. I'm a big fan of Grishaverse, The Raven Cycle series, The Shadowhunters Chronicles, and The Folk of the Air series, so you'll find me posting a lot about these book series. Besides that, I also post A LOT of Shadow and Bone TV series video edits because I'm OBSESSED with it. A recent book I enjoyed: I've been obsessing over A Darker Shade of Magic. I honestly love V. E. Schwab's writing so much! A Darker Shade of Magic is one of the coolest and amazingly written books I've ever read this year. It's a high fantasy, with cool fight scenes, awesome characters, and rich world building! 25. Wilmarie from @lesbe.reader Lesbe Reader / Via instagram.com About me: What can I say about myself? All you need to know is that I’m a queer Puerto Rican bookworm who buys too many books, always says they’re going on a book-buying ban (and breaks them), and is very honest. I talk about books, mental illness, and everything that’s consuming my brain for the moment.What followers can expect: Expect lots of screaming about my newest obsession, snippets about my culture, and overall normal bookworm mess.A recent book I enjoyed: I recently read and loved You Had Me at Hola by Alexis Daria. It’s an adult romance featuring a diverse cast of characters, telenovelas, and lots of typical family fun. I loved the steamy romance, but there's something about the family dynamic and the telenovela aspect that just stole my heart. I can't wait to get my hands on the sequel.
