Bookstagram Tips and Tricks

What is a Bookstagram?

It’s an Instagram account that is solely to show passion for books, using lights, props, candles etc

I’ve learned a lot over the past few months, about how to join this fabulous community. I’ve rounded up a few essential tips you need to know..


  1. Light–> Probably one of the most important things about posting the photo. Natural light is best. So try and take your photos in a light room or on a window sill.
  2. Props –> use anything!! They don’t need to cost the earth. Pick up teacups in a charity shop, buy fake flowers, find pine cones, leaves from the forest floor.. etc
  3. Hashtags –> these are awesome ways to be connected to Instagram. my favourites are #Bookstagram, #bookchallenge & #bookphoto.
  4. Book Challenges –>  These are set by other Bookstagrammers, who post a prompt for each day of the month. for example; Book & Mug, OTP, starts with, YA fantasy etc..

So now that I’ve given you a few tips, I would love to see your pictures. my Instagram account is @Literary_Witchery.. Follow me and I will ALWAYS follow back..
