Top Ten Tuesday | #BookNerdigan Instagram Stalking

One of the best things about the book blogging community is discovering fellow book nerds. Why is this? Well, the reasons are quite obvious really: the more amazing #BookNerdigans we meet along the journey, the more amazing people we can fangirl with or relive all the feels with. Yes, this is true. We book nerds do love our fangirl moments. (Please tell me I’m not the only one who feels this way?) 

Today’s Broke and Bookish allows us to turn a spotlight on some of our favorite book nerds, which is fabulous.

Broke and Bookish April 5th  

Ten Bookish People You Should Follow On Twitter/Instagram/Youtube/Snapchat/Facebook

(you pick the platform of your choice to talk about all the interesting bookish people to follow! If you don't use social media much you can pick your favorite bookish blogs or new blogs you've come across to follow.) 

I chose to focus on Instagram as my social media platform to feature. Why, I don’t know, but there you have it. I don’t follow Booktube as closely as I once did (though it’s not because I no longer enjoy it), and much as I want to keep up with new (whether to book blogging or new to me) people who are taking the book blogging world by storm, I haven’t been going outside my comfort zone of book bloggers (because time). But someday I’d like to again.  

Until then, I’m happy to be among my amazing circle of #BookBestie friends and visiting their blogs is always a treat. You all know who you are – shout-out to you all; your talents, creativity and support of your favorite books or authors is an inspiration in this community. Thanks for being such a fun circle of book buddies to fangirl with – and thanks for the willingness to fangirl with me. 
Finally, before we move on, keep in mind this is not an all-inclusive list; my list is of the bookish sort (meaning authors or bookstagrammers) which doesn’t mean there aren’t many other IG accounts I follow and love… because of limits, I simply chose to spotlight accounts that are, generally, exclusively focused on books.

With all that said (I got wordy today, didn't I?!), let’s have a look at the bookish Instagrams I heart and stalk (in a non-creepy way).  

1. Sasha Alsberg, @SashaAlsberg | Yes I know Sasha is quite the popular among the ranks of Booktube, but I do enjoy her branding for her YouTube and Instagram accounts. She does a nice job with both. 

2. Joanne Bischof, @MasonJarBooks | Joanne is one of the sweetest authors to chat with. She's enthusiastic about sharing her messages of faith, hope and love through her account and stories, plus she's an INDIE author, so you know, go support her amazing stories!

3. Kristy Cambron, @KristyCambron | Author Kristy Cambron's account is a lovely mix of her writing shenanigans and her daily inspirations.

4. Epic Reads, @EpicReads | Who doesn’t love Epic Reads (HarperCollins YA community)? Bravo to their social media photographer Margot! 

5. Evie, @EvieBookish | Not only does Evie have an amazing shop on Society 6 (a book lover's dream store!), her Instagram feed is also amazing.

6. Jamie, @PerpetualPageTurner | One of the Top Ten Tuesday founders; Jamie's IG is fun!

7. The Little Bookshelf, @TheLittleBookshelf | A newbie find of mine, I really like this account. The fun sense of bookish "place" is always neat as is the bright, happy lighting the photos boast.

8. Lydia, @OverweightBookshelf | Not only am I fortunate to “know” Lydia (hey fellow INSPY pal), but her IG feed is amazing - no seriously, amazing. So clean, beautiful and of course, bookish.

9.  Michelle, @madamereadsalot | Yet another of my recent finds. It's a fun page with plenty of #Shelfies, #Bookstagrams, and all that #Bookish fun!

10. Mary Weber, @MaryWeberAuthor | Already a fantastic author, Mary’s Instrgam is as fun a place to hang out (her posts about her husband are so cute) as she is to chat with. 

Who are some of your favorite Bookstagramners, tweeters, Booktubers and/or book bloggers? Share some of your most visited or frequented book blogger picks down below!
