Love looking at book covers as much as you love reading books?
Allow me to introduce you to Bookstagram (AKA InstaBook), the hashtag-based portion of Instagram where bibliophiles show off their books.

Enjoy looking at pictures of books? Reader, meet Bookstagram, Bookstagram meet reader.
Bookstagram (much like Foodstagram) is a tag on Instagram where bibliophiles around the world share pictures of books and other bookish paraphernalia.
And I’m gonna be honest, while September wasn’t my best showing, I have high hopes for October, AKA the best month of the year!
Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel (★★★★☆)
After a brief struggle with the first 100 pages of Sleeping Giants, I found myself fully committed to Neuvel’s plot involving ancient aliens and a giant robot.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas (★★★★★)
Sarah J. Maas has really stepped up her game with the second book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. A Hades and Persephone retelling, ACOMAF has tons more world building, even more amazing characters and a beautiful slow burn romance that will have you experiencing every possible emotion. I didn’t think I was going to survive the ending, and I don’t know how I’m going to wait a year to find out what happens next. [WATCH BOOK CLUB DISCUSSION] [READ FULL REVIEW]
Happily Ever After: A Companion to the Selection Series by Kiera Cass (★★★☆☆½)
Even though reading every short story tied to a young adult series seems like a chore, I keep torturing myself anyway out of some weird sense of obligation. As with most short story/novella bind-ups, I liked some of the tales in Happily Ever After and suffered through others. I did however appreciate the illustrations that went along with each story — even the ones I loathed.
