One of my favourite things about blogging is bookstagram. But what is bookstagram? It’s a community on instagram where people share their thoughts about books. You can ask anyone for book recommendations or have long discussions about a certain book. And you can show your love for books by posting photos of them. It’s an amazing and loving community and I made some really good friends through bookstagram.
Now the big question: how do you start a bookstagram? It took me a while before I had enough courage to start my bookstagram account. I grabbed my phone, took a photo of a book and posted it. I didn’t know a single thing about having a good username, writing bios. I didn’t even know what a theme was back then. Through this series How to #Bookstagram I want to help anyone who wants to start or has a bookstagram account. I am definitely not an expert, but I learned a couple of things. If this post helps you to give some insights and inspiration, I’m happy to share everything I’ve learned during the 2 years I’ve had my bookstagram.
If you scroll down on your instagram feed, you’ll most definitely see a subscription box popping up your screen. One of those subscription boxes is Fairyloot. It’s a fantasy subscription box which contains a new released fantasy book and 5-6 bookish items related to the theme of the month or the new book. The January theme was Talk Faerie To Me and I was really excited for this box. The items were inspired by ACOTAR, ToG and other series with Fae and it contained a high anticipated book about faeries. I already had a feeling what that book was so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. Do you have any guesses which book it could be? Let’s see if you’re right.
Today’s theme is Books You Disliked but Love to Discuss – These are some books we disliked or they were just okay, but they still have a lot of discussion points to sink our teeth into. To be honest, there aren’t a lot of books that I dislike so I have no idea if I can name 5. But I love to discuss those that I mentioned in this list.
Six of Crows is one of the books you can’t ignore on instagram. It’s everywhere. That’s why I got the book in the first place, I was eager to find out why people kept talking about this book and Kaz Brekker.But like all book dragons, I had a huge TBR and I didn’t immediately started SoC. A year after I got it, I thought it was time to get to it.
