TOP TEN TUESDAY
April 5, 2016
It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic was Ten Bookish People You Should Follow On Twitter/Instagram/Youtube/Snapchat/Facebook
I’m on Twitter a lot (A LOT) but I don’t really know who to recommend to follow as a good Twitter “personality”. I could tell you to go follow all of my friends but that’s a looot of people! So I opted to go with Instagram instead and do some shoutouts of some of my favorite accounts! It’s so hard to keep track so I’m sure I’m missing some and I’m also going to try to include accounts of varying “popularity” since I could probably recommend some beautiful accounts that you’re already following anyway! (Oh, and this is way more than ten!)
PROFESSIONALS AND BIG-TIMERS
These are some of my all-time favorite book photographers! Their photos are amazingly beautiful and I’m constantly amazed by their composition, technique, and creativity! The “big-timers” are the bookstagrammers who have tons and tons of followers (and rightfully so) and you definitely need to be following them if you’re not already! (In no particular order…)

BLOGGER FRIENDS WITH BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS
These accounts are some of my bookish friends who also blog and they take some amazing photos! Some of these accounts have followers into 10k and 20k (and beyond!!) so they can definitely qualify as some major bookstagram accounts but since I had so many of those already, I’m grouping them with blogger friends! (The grouping is totally irrelevant but you know. In case you want to follow their blogs too!) They’re all lovely people and they take some amazing pictures!!
Some of my favorite bookish shops also have gorgeous instagram accounts — plus, they update all the time with new items and sales!

PUBLISHERS & AUTHORS
Last but not least, I’m always following my favorite publishing teams and authors! Erin Bowman takes some absolutely beautiful photos and these publishing accounts always have great shots of their books!
