When I first started using Instagram, I will admit I didn’t understand the platform at all. But as time went on I started understanding the use of hashtags and the best times for posting, how to gain followers and find the accounts I would like to follow. It was also then that I discovered that instagram has separate sections for all the people/bloggers they host. Because I both write and review books, there never is a constant theme for me. But I discovered the bookstagrammers on here. People who grammed books…in beautiful aesthetically pleasing settings and wrote mini reviews for it, because let’s face it – maintaining a blog is hard work! And it’s difficult to keep at it especially if no one comments on your blog posts.
Here are my five picks for the 5 Bookstagram accounts you should be following! (I know there are others out there too. But these are MY top 5 picks.)
Are there any books you often subconsciously think about? . I have a few which keep coming to mind, one of them being To Kill a Mockingbird. First things first, if you haven’t already, READ IT! . What makes the book beautiful to me is the innocence of the narrator. It’s a very heavy topic shown through the unfiltered eyes of the child. I think that’s what makes this book resonate with so many people. . 📍Have you read it? Share your thoughts on the book, I’d love to discuss this one!
What are you reading today? My current read is Dozakhnama by Rabisankar Bal and Arunava Sinha. 👍 Book: Dozakhnama Author: Rabisankar Bal, Arunava Sinha 544 pages Published: July 10, 2012 Synopsis: Who tells the greatest story — God or Manto? Dozakhnama: Conversations in Hell is an extraordinary novel, a biography of Manto and Ghalib and a history of Indian culture rolled into one. Exhumed from dust, Manto’s unpublished novel surfaces in Lucknow. Is it real or is it a fake? In this dastan, Manto and Ghalib converse, entwining their lives in shared dreams. The result is an intellectual journey that takes us into the people and events that shape us as a culture. As one writer describes it, ‘I discovered Rabisankar Bal like a torch in the darkness of the history of this subcontinent. This is the real story of two centuries of our own country.’ Rabisankar Bal’s audacious novel, told by reflections in a mirror and forged in the fires of hell, is both an oral tale and a shield against oblivion. An echo of distant screams. Inscribed by the devil’s quill, Dozakhnama is an outstanding performance of subterranean memory.
Let's get some yellow… . . . . . Do you think this book is over-rated? . . . . Hey guys so I am at my wit's end with captions these days. I finished Yaa Gyasi's Homegoing and believe me it is one 5 star book and you shouldn't miss it for the world. Currently I am reading Elephants Can Remember by Agatha Christie and The Free Voice by Ravish Kumar. . . . . So, it's exactly midnight here and I am watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S S3, E20, The one with Chandler and Rachel's boss. And I am waiting for the Man Utd match to start. And also I am binge watching Malgudi Days with my wife. It is the most amazing and nostalgic show ever. . . . So, to a happening Saturday night guys…put the phone down and pick up a book. Tata. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #rupikaur #thesunandherflowers #yellow #yellowflowers #poetry #poetryporn #poems #poetsofinstagram #poemsofinstagram #booksbooksbooks #igreads #bookstagram #bookstagramindia #booklove #bookporn #bookgasm #bookreaders #bibliophiles #bookworms #readersofig #bookishph #bookish #bookphotos #bookphotography #met_createchange #unitedbookstagram
