;five asian bookstagrammers you should follow

I haven’t been as active on Bookstagram as I would like to be. I’ve been posting! Almost daily for a week! But commenting on other people’s posts? I’ve been very lax on that, and I apologise.

Still! There are a number of AMAZING Bookstagram accounts I follow, and today, I would like to take the opportunity to gush about a few.

  • Let’s start with Charvi, @not.just.fiction, whose feed is bright and fun and so well planned and executed? I’m in awe. Charvi has recently alternated bookstagram photos with book tweets, and it makes for a very fun theme.
  • Kae, @theportablemagik, is a recent find, and I think a newer Bookstagram? But looking at their photos, you would not think that. They are so well put together and clean, and there’s a skill to these photos that I still haven’t managed yet.
  • I had a chance to meet Hem, @faeofnightcourt, once at her workplace, without knowing I was already following her Bookstagram, and not only is she wonderful, she also takes very different and fun photos that just work and are as warm as she seems to be.
  • Did I mention Tiffany, @readbytiffany, in my post about bloggers? Because I might have, but this talented person also takes bright and seemingly simple but so aesthetic pictures that I cannot deal.
  • I am pretty sure I mentioned Nandini, @dini_bharadwaj, in that blogger post, but if you see her feed, you will understand why I had to include her on this list. Her photos are bright and her theme is so gorgeous, and I wish I could take these sorts of pictures.

There are so many more wonderful Asian Bookstagrammers I follow that if I am thinking about doing a part two of this. These talented individuals leave me in awe at how they arrange and take their photos, at how their themes reflect what I may know about them.

I didn’t add photos to this post because my photos pale in comparison to these accounts, so click on those links to their accounts and give them some love!

Who are some Bookstagrammers you adore and look up to?

I’m Ara, a Southeast Asian writer who someday hopes to have published a novel, and who is currently losing herself in the worlds created by others. I love books and food and television and blogging and I get distracted and sidetracked easily.
