17 Picture-perfect Book Instagram Accounts To Inspire You To Read More© Instagram

Move over fashion and beauty bloggers of Instagram, your time is over (lol jk, you're flawless.) That being said, at the moment we haven't been able to get enough of the increasingly beautiful and smart Instagram accounts dedicated to the literature. Giving us total inspo on what to read next (and making us think that wearing over the knee socks, drinking tea and reading in bed is way more fun than going out over the week, here are the book Instagrams we are currently obsessed with...

@subwaybookreview

Basically this Instagram account corners readers on the NYC underground and has them pose with what they're reading, what it's about and if they are enjoying it - giving you inspiration for your next literary adventure from your peers rather than critics, the bestseller list or, horror of horrors, Richard and Judy's book club picks.

@imjustahuman

This gorgeous account is ran by Anna, a Ukrainian student who has no trouble reminding us why we fell in love with books in the first place. Her creativity, especially in making her favourite books look so beautiful, will want to make you throw your kindle out of the window, guaranteed.

@blueyedbiblio

Emily's impressive love of books ranges from gorgeous classics right to young adult fiction, and she always discusses what she enjoys about the novel she's reading (along with a little blurb on what it's about and why she has chosen to read it, which is always helpful.)

@liamkelsall

Liam Kelsall runs successful Twitter and Tumblr accounts called 'Perks of being a fanboy', and his Instagram account really sums up why. He is basically the crazy fan in all of us, getting all too excited about every book, TV show and movie that you probably have marked down in your diary.

@lilitslittlelibrary

Perhaps our favourite (but ssh), Lilit's account showcases gorgeously clean cut photographs and unusual book choices, giving you inspiration to pick up those dusty novels hidden right at the back of the store. Not only are her pictures beautiful, she also regularly holds giveaway comps (get in there!)

@bookbaristas

NYC-based Natasha is a BIG fan of funky socks, and of reading books. Working at Penguin Publishing and also as a book blogger, it's fair to say Natasha knows what books are going to be hits, and one enthusiastic review from her will send you running to pick up her latest favourite.

@youngadultbookaddict

Not only is Tracey crazy obsessed with YA fiction (as her Instagram handle would suggest), she also has all of the accessories to go with her favourite books (particularly Harry Potter), and so her photos are always full of little treasures you can't help but add to your bibliophile wish list.

@bey.86

This Instagrammer keeps her pictures simple, generally opting to showcase one book at a time in a blank background, coupling it with her favourite quotes from the novel. It's probably the smartest book Instagram on the list, and makes us wish we were a lot more sophisticated than we actually are *rereads Harry Potter for the 50th time.*

@bookishsmaug

It's hard to believe that Cath is only 16 and yet has an amazing Instagram book account with a passionate following, but there it is!

@epicreads

Young Adult favourites again. We can't help it, they just look so bloomin' good, AND they are entertaining. This Instagram page has volunteered as tribute to give us our guilty pleasure fix, and we're okay with that!

#LoveWins 📖❤️🌈

@quirkybooks

Gaia's flat lays are always so stylish and her favourite reads are always on point.

@thelittlebookshelf

This Instagrammer combines fashion with her reading, giving us inspiration for our style AND our minds! We especially love getting an insight into her wardrobe, particularly when she uses her shoes as bookends (it makes total sense really!)

When your favorite shoes double as bookends. 💕😉💁🏻👠.

@chroniclebooks

Since they deal in books, they seriously know how to showcase their (and our) favourite thing. From snappy cool libraries to snazzy shelves to just showing off their new releases, Chronicle Books is one of our all-time faves.

"I can't walk out of @powellsbooks without an armload." Couldn't agree with you more, @silentbookclub. #ThisIsMyBookstore

@penguinukbooks

Ran officially by Penguin publishing, this is a lovely collection of classics and their new releases, giving you the edge on the newest literature to land in our laps!

#Sherlock! ❤️ Which is your favourite Sherlock book?
