The Weekly 8: #Bookstagram Accounts You Need To Follow…

Hey y’all…

 

It’s time for the weekly 8!  Today, I’ll be sharing some very useful accounts to follow on Instagram so that you can get more information about books or just gawk at lovely photos of books. Did you know that looking at photos of books a can add 5 seconds to your lifespan? Yup, I just made that up but I think it’s totally true.

 

If you are new to #Bookstagram, you need to follow these wonderful accounts but wait. Are you following me yet? You should😊😊😊

Fifi is my goals. I love her taste in books but most importantly, you should follow her for her insights, she has such a deep awareness of books that she reads, so when she talks about them, you get very motivated to read them too. And you ALWAYS learn something new.

This is my spirit animal, we have the same taste in books so she is a best friend that I haven’t met (yet). And I love how simple and straightforward her timeline is. No gimmicks, just books.

I love how introspective she is. If you want to know more about African Literature, this is one of the accounts to follow. And she gives such lovely reviews.

H O M E G O I N G ➰: . . Hello guys! I had initially started reading Burnt Shadows but it's an e-copy and I haven't settled into the idea of reading from a 4-inches screen. So I left it for Homegoing, which I got in hard copy, thanks to @uthmanzaynab 😘😘😘😘. . . The book started out well. Effia's story kept me glued and Esi's story tightened the rope. I wanted to know what became of their lineages. And I did. Admittedly, I came across the lack of character development @kenyanbibliophile hinted in her review but I forgave the few characters whose stories didn't really 'settle within my stomach' . . Winnie's story hurt the most. I had no idea watching an almost-white-but-actually-black-man making out with his black wife' was a thing to jerk off to. To accept that racism crippled the almost-white-black-man to actually make out with his wife at the command of a white man, was really hard for me. . . Racism still has that hold though; it still has the ability to make you tune out the ones you love.😣 . . Also, my sixth sense kept telling me Yaa will bring the two lineages, together, at the end, just like she started out with. And she did! It was at this point I had my 'OMG I knew this would happen' moment while reading this book. It was the deal breaker for me. Yaa Gyasi started out this book beautifully and while some of the characters might have lacked some depth, she nailed the end with such adroitness 😭😭😭😭. . . The book is a 4/5 and if you haven't read it, I suggest you add it to your tbr or move it up your tbr👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾. . #bookstagram#nigerianbibliophile#bookstagramnigeria#africanliterature#homegoing#yaagyasi#slavery#bookworm#bookdragon#booklover#bookflatlay#iheartbook#bookstagramfeatures#penguininstagram _________________________ QOTD: "What can grow from nothing?" _________________________ Baaba, Homegoing

His love for Stephen King inspired to start reading the works. His page is stuff of dreams, I love the layout of his photos. I have tried recreating some but I always get frustrated I mean, look at this?

There is something extremely calming about this page. The filter. I think it’s the filter, it makes me feel very relaxed when I’m stalking the page. His collection is particularly interesting and inspires me to step out of my comfort zone once in a while.
