Bookstagram is a huge deal. It’s massive. There are so many bookstagrammers, it blows my mind. I love that reading brings such joy to so many people, and there’s a huge community out there to connect with. Today I’m sharing 130 Bookish Hashtags for Bookstagram.

What is a bookstagram?

It’s an Instagram page, solely focused on books. Think book collections, recommendations, bookshelves, beautiful book photography, and well, people who like books.

I’ve been on Instagram for a long time. I set up my profile in 2011! I describe my Instagram ‘aesthetic’ as moody macabre photos… but with joy. I don’t even know, but I love moody vibe photos, an eternal Autumn, and gothic architecture.

I’m also a reader.

I set up a bookstagram (@classicalarchaeologist) a few months ago, then realised I do not have the time to manage / grow so many different social platforms and my blog.

Anyway, the idea was to keep my book reviews separate from my usual content on @emilyunderworld, but then it kind of turned into a place to share my digital art too, and ‘dark academia’ because that’s my vibe.

I haven’t been posting regularly on my bookstagram, mainly due to my health, and putting too much pressure on myself.

Anyone else have this problem? You get excited about starting something new, then realise you’ve got too much on your plate already.

At this point, I don’t really feel that bookstagram is for me. I read a lot, but mostly non-fiction / classic literature, and certainly not at the pace of some people on there. I also don’t really keep up with new releases because well… most of my favourite authors are dead.

I think the best thing for me is just to continue with what I do already: post pictures of books on my Instagram when I want to, and write book reviews here when I want to. I’m also on Goodreads if you want to see my lists.

Here’s a fun fact: I had a Booktube (a bookish YouTube channel) back in 2015-2016. It was fun for a while, but I just fell out of filming after getting diagnosed with lupus.

Let’s move on to the topic of today’s blog post: hashtags.

One of the main ways to get noticed on Bookstagram (and Instagram generally) is with hashtags.

I’ve curated a list of 130 Bookish Hashtags for Bookstagram, I hope this will be useful for someone!

Make sure to switch up which hashtags you use. You can use up to 30 per post, either in your caption or in a comment.

I’ve separated the bookish hashtags into different sections based on theme.

Do you have a Bookstagram? If you do, I hope you found this helpful.

A little shoutout to my gals @alicjawrites and @bibliophile_daydream – they both have beautiful Bookstagrams. Plus, they’re lovely humans. Trust me, I live with them! Well, Alicja moved to Oxford during the summer for her publishing job, but she’s still here in spirit.

All the best,

- Emily
