5 of the Best Local Bookstagrams to Follow If You Love to Read

Jan 11, 2022 0 comments



The pandemic has given many of us so much free time on our hands all of a sudden and there are times that we just have no idea what to do with it anymore. Many have resorted to starting business and just as many people, if not more, have decided to pick up a new hobby or two. 


Reading may not be everyone’s cup of tea but it sure is a good activity and hobby if you want to kill time or even for days you want some form of escape from this dreary world. It’s also a pretty good way to open up your imagination to different worlds and even improve how you write. 


If you need some motivation to resume your old reading habits or a push to pick up a book for the first time in years, here are some Instagram accounts of bibliophiles, otherwise known as bookstagrams, that you can check out!


@agathafeelingg.reads


26-year-old Carmela Agatha Enriquez is one of the many readers these days who does their reading on Kindle and Kobo, which she features in her bookstagram called @agathafeelingg.reads. Her feed has a modern, techie vibe to it that is a breath of fresh air from the usual lazy afternoon aesthetic filled with flowers and candles and whatnot that many bookstagrams have. 


This bookstagram has featured books such as Sarah Kuhn’s “I Love You So Mochi,” Kathryn Freeman’s “Mr. Right Across the Street,” and J.K. Rowling’s “The Christmas Pig.”


@boundlesspages 


@boundlesspages is run by Riz, who describes herself as a reader first and a functioning adult second. If you’re a fan of the book and bed sheet aesthetic, her feed is one that you will surely love. 


Riz posts both ebooks and physical copies of books in her bookstagram. Some of the books she has posted are Sally Thorne’s “The Hating Game,” Katee Robert’s “Neon Gods,” and Penny Reid’s “Elements of Chemstry.”


@bubbleswrapherbooks


John Lloyd Dizon runs the bookstagram account @bubbleswrapherbooks and already has more than 7,000 followers. The future teacher and avid reader and reviewer posts photos of books that will give you the vibes of a cozy autumn day or a warm afternoon spent reading page after page of whatever book. 


Among the books that have been featured and reviewed on @bubbleswrapherbooks includes Sara Goodman Confino’s “For the Love of Friends,” Colleen Hoover’s “Layla,” and Kirpa Singh’s “Reality Check.”


@thecornerofmay 


Ever imagined living in a home where tables and shelves are filled to the brim with books, art, and plants? This is the feeling that you’ll get when you browse through @thecornerofmay. This bookstagram is run by a Filipina named Sed, who also has a Good Reads account in case you want to check out her reviews as well as the books she has read or plans to read. 


Sed has featured a couple of books on her bookstagram. These include Andrew Sean Greer’s “Less,” Hanna Alkaf’s “The Girl and the Ghost,” and Jennifer Giesbrecht’s “Monster of Elendhaven.”


@kathsbookcrate


@kathsbookcrate is a bookstagram that anyone who’s into the whole book, coffee, scented candle, and flower aesthetic should definitely browse and follow. The bookstagram, which is run by an avid reader named Kathleen, exudes a warm, comforting vibe that many associate with reading books. 


Kathleen has read numerous books such as Neil Gaiman’s “Coraline,” Erin Morgenstern’s “The Starless Sea,” and Emily Lloyd-Jones’ “The Bone Houses.”
