Like most of y'all, we spend LOADS of time scrolling through Instagram looking at pictures that are not only complete lol, but that give us complete life envy. Litch, why is it our smashed avocado on toast with chilli flakes never looks like this?
Instagram has the ability to make everyday stuff look pretty amaze, and people really do use the app creatively.
One sub-section of the Insta world are bookstagrammers. Yup, people that take pictures of books. Wait! Don't go just yet, as these are pretty incredible.
Using filters, books, paper, e-readers and, of course, an eye for aesthetically pleasing pics, these users are creating some stunning art as well as the actual practice of reading and we're kinda obsessed. Plus, you get amazing book recommendations, too.
So here are 5 of our fave accounts that, if like us, you love books and all things pretty...

All this Percy Jackson reading has me thinking about questing. Ha. Summer is coming and that's prime backpacking season! My question today is: what fictional land would you like to quest in AND if you could bring one magical item, what would you bring? I think I would go questing in Middle Earth (maybe see if I can get Legolas to come along *wink, cough*) and I would want a Firebolt. That way I could travel long distances easily and fly out of danger.

There's more of a personal touch to 'c a n d y k's' account, which is pretty cool.
So if you see my last post, you would know I re-organize and divide my shelves again (I know) so the first 6 shelves on top are my "read" shelves and my copy of To All The Boys I've Loved Before is missing right now because I just lent it to my best friend (yes I have a friend who reads, only one though)
There's something quirky about booksss.0k's account(aka Adam, that we can't help but spend AGES scrolling through it.
