I reached 6,000 Instagram followers today, which is a massive achievement in my eyes, so I’m very happy! I thought about the different posts I could do in celebration of this, and came up with ‘Books From Bookstagram’. The general idea is that I am going to list a few books that I brought because I saw them on Bookstagram and either liked the look of them, or read great reviews about them.
The ACOTAR series by Sarah J. Maas
I thought I’d mention this series first, because it is 100% the one I’m most thankful to Bookstagram for helping me to discover. I hadn’t even heard of it before Instagram, and now it’s one of my favourites! The reviews were great, and I just saw so many other bookworms raving about it that I couldn’t not give it a try.
Everything Everything and The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon
I loved the covers to both of these books, so seeing them in the pretty pictures posted by Bookstagrammers really did encourage me to go and buy them both. I haven’t read The Sun Is Also A Star yet, but I have read Everything Everything and I enjoyed it very much, it was a quick read too, which was nice.
If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch
After seeing this, the title intrigued me a little, but I didn’t really plan on buying it. Then, I was browsing on Depop, and I saw someone selling it for only one pound and I recognised it and couldn’t resist!
The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
I’ve mentioned this series several times since starting my blog, so I won’t go into it too much. Lots of Bookstagrammers told me how amazing this series was, so I brought it for only 15 pounds in The Works!
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
I only had to see this one mentioned once to know I wanted it. It seems as if it covers a lot of important issues and I’m excited to read it.
So, there we go, just a few of the books I have brought because of Bookstagram! There are definitely more I have brought, and there’s so many in my ‘saved’ area on IG that I can’t even count them.
