Nigerian Bookstagram Accounts You Have Been Sleeping On…
Hello, beautiful people!
It’s no secret that bibliophiles are often creative, artistic, and innovative people: after all, they’ve learned the power of building new, beautiful worlds in every book they’ve read.
That’s why Bookstagram, a community within Instagram designed entirely for bookworms like you and you, is the perfect platform to share bookish wisdom and whimsy in creative ways.
I did a post about #Bookstagram last year, you should definitely check it out. What makes Nigerian Bookstagram so special though? The fact that they are Nigerians. That’s it.
It’s like a showcase of diversity. There are the YA lovers, Contemporary, Fantasy, Crime and most importantly pushing Nigerian Fiction out to the world. And it’s a duty they take seriously!
We talk about the need for diversity and representation books, blogs, and internet magazines. Social media has made so much of this shift possible. Trying to populate my internet life with reviewers, recommenders, and authors of colour has helped me understand the need for these changes and diversify my own reading.
But more change, more diversity, and more gatekeepers are definitely needed. So, I want to specifically suggest you follow these beautiful bookstagram accounts run by Nigerians.
And don’t forget to get creative with your own Bookstagram! There are tons of ways to make a splash with your Bookstagram account. You can opt for simply posting swoon-worthy shots of your bookshelves (A.K.A. literary eye-candy) or you can get involved with reading challenges. I have an active challenge going on right now if you want to get a headstart!
Don’t be afraid to reach out to authors and other Bookstagrammers: comment on their posts, ask questions, invite conversation. It often helps to pick a theme for your content and stick to it. Or not. Because I absolutely don’t have a theme, lol. Except you consider random chaos your thing.
The most beautiful part about Bookstagram is the sense of unity it fosters. An entire community of bibliophiles desperate to share their favourite reads with the world, Bookstagram allows an avenue for connection and comfort with like-minded bookworms all around the world.
Don’t know what to read next? Need a bibliobuddy to fangirl with? Just head to Instagram and start swooning over words with bloggers who just might become your new best friends. This might be a nice place to start, follow the page below.
I hope you found the post interesting. Let’s connect more on social media.
