What Should I Put In My Bookstagram Bio?

Your bookstagram bio should explain who you are, what you do and contain keywords so that when people search for those keywords on Instagram, you’ll pop up!

Somethings to include in your bookstagram bio:

  • Name
  • Nationality (flag emoji)
  • Age
  • Books Read/Reading Goal
  • Current Read
  • Other Social Handles (booktok/goodreads)
  • Email
  • Book Quotes
  • A Link (linktree is a good option to have multiple links as Instagram bios only allow space for one)

Here Are 8 Bookstagram Bio Ideas To Take Inspiration From:

1. @sumaiyya.books

With this account, you can see she includes her current location. 

Another thing that might interest you is to put your email so that publishers and authors can contact you to work with you.

2. @soniasingh_

This is my bookstagram! I added my brand/blog name in the name section so that if anyone searches for “brewing writer” on Instagram, i’ll show up in their search.

I am also a writer, writing and book reviewing goes well together and therefore can bring you many collaboration opportunities or even paid writing gigs. 

That is why I included “writer” in my bio description.

3. @bookish_jules

One idea to takeaway from this bookstagram bio is that she mentions her book club account! If you have a book club or podcast account, you might want to consider doing this.

She is also a book blogger and promotes her blog on her bookstagram bio.

4. @sarcasticbrunettes.library

bookstagram bio ideas

A unique thing this bookstagrammer does is to add in her official hashtag. Yes, you can create your own official bookstagram hashtag and hashtag your book reviews with it. 

That way if anyone wants a quick access to all your book reviews/recommendations – they can just pop the bookstagram hashtag into the search bar.

Also, instead of putting in her age, she adds her year of birth to her bookstagram bio.

5. @legenbooksdary

This bookstagrammer is also an author. She uses her bookstagram bio to spread awareness about her recently published poetry and short story book – Indecipherable.

She also adds a link to purchase the book. If you are an author or if you own a bookish business, you can use your bookstagram bio to make people aware of it/promote it.

6. @theespressoedition

bookstagram bio ideas

The Espresso Edition is one of my favourite bookstagram accounts and best book blogs to take inspiration from.

Her bookstagram bio is great for inspiration as it incorporates details from her personal life that isn’t book related, such as the music/song she is currently into.

She also mentions “Gastroparesis” in her bio, which is a chronic digestive disease. You can read more about her experience in her recent blog post.

It’s a great idea to use your bookstagram bio to spread awareness about illnesses, causes or anything you’ve personally experienced/are passionate about.

It is also another way to connect with audience that share similar experience.

7. @yourstrulyjulietta

Another bio idea for book lovers would be to incorporate bookstagram bio quotes to personalize your bio a little.

The short book quote can be from your favourite book, favourite character or a generic bookish quote that you resonate with the most.

A bookstagram bio quote is a unique way to tell anyone who lands on your account more about what to expect if they decide to follow you. It’s also an Instagram bio idea that’s aesthetic!

Short bookstagram bio quotes:

  • “Books are a uniquely portable magic.” – Stephen King
  • “That’s the thing about books. They let you travel without moving your feet.” -Jhumpa Lahiri, The Namesake
  • “Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.” – Margaret Fuller
  • “A well-read woman is a dangerous creature.” – Lisa Kleypas
  • “In the end, we’ll all become stories.” – Margaret Atwood, Moral Disorder and Other Stories
  • “A room without books is like a body without a soul.” – Marcus Tullius Cicero

A common trend i’ve noticed, many Instagram bio for readers consist of their MBTI personality type. In a way, it’s easy to identify similar MBTI personalities and follow them as you’ll resonate with their content.

Another bookworm bio idea that’s widely used is to put your reading goal in the bio.

Eg: 📚5/50

This can be a fun way to track your reading. However, I find it a little bit pressuring. If it doesn’t bother you that your reading stats are out in the open for anyone who lands on your profile to read, then by all means go for it!

So there you have it, 8 bookstagram bio ideas to inspire you. Be sure to not add every single idea listed or your bookstagram bio may look cluttered.

I feel the most important thing about your bookstagram bio is that it should reflect who you are as a person. 

Try not to add something to your bookstagram bio just because everyone is doing so. If it is irrelevant to you, ignore it.

I hope this helps!

  1. Aww thank you for including me in this! I try to indicate whether I’m reading a physical book or listening to an audiobook with my emojis next to the titles 🙂 I think it’s also important to note here not to use fancy fonts in your bio! They’re not accessible for people who need to use alternative methods of screen-reading. I only learned about this last year, but I’m trying to spread the information as much as possible. So many great bios here. I feel so honored to be part of the mix! xx
