All it takes is one look at Emily Ables’ Instagram account to know she has a thing for books. She also happens to have more than 50,000 followers.
On her @blueeyedbiblio account, the 18-year-old posts lovely photos of books she’s read and what she’s #currentlyreading. Her theme is a combination of minimal details, such as her white bookshelves and gray walls, with colorful book covers.
God my bookshelves are a mess😂 // so guys, I'm currently on a bus to NYC for a school trip and I'm SO EXCITED because I've never been before, but that means I won't be posting as much. I have a few photos I'll try to post, but I can't promise I'll remember😅 just don't unfollow bc I'll be back Friday!!!😁💕
“I usually put a lot of thought into my photos to make sure they look nice while also showing off the books I want to share with everyone,” she said in an email to The Huffington Post.
For Emily, reading is more than a way to pass the time. It’s her passion, which she discovered the first time she read the “Harry Potter” series.
“Those books gave me friends and showed me that reading can allow you to experience incredible things, like being a wizard and casting spells,” she said.
Christmas always puts me in such a Harry Potter mood⚡️ I have a ridiculous amount of unread books but I kind of just want to reread Harry Potter, especially since I have these new editions that I haven't read yet. ALSO, my friend bought me a candle that smells like the Burrow during Christmastime and its so wonderful😍🎄
Aside from the boy wizard, Emily enjoys reading books from her favorite author, Rainbow Rowell. She also reads “The Outsiders” once a year.
“Something about it is just so special to me," she said. "I'll always be revisiting it and its characters.”
Since her Instagram has become so popular, she’s been getting offers to review books. She also might start updating her blog, which is how she originally wanted to share her love for books with others.
Based on her Instagram success, whatever comes next in Emily’s @blueeyedbiblio adventure will certainly be a page-turner.

I have another book haul!! 📚Mosquitoland by David Arnold and I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson. IGYTS has been out for a while and I know a lot of you have read and loved it, but Mosquitoland just came out last week. I'm curious, has anyone read it yet? I've heard great things from people who got ARCs✨
Just found out it's #InternationalWomensDay!! In honor of that, here are 5 books written about females about amazing female main characters. Each of these books I've given 5/5 stars so obviously I recommend them to you all☺️ // all of the books are standing on Amy Poehler's book because Amy is literally my number one inspiration for everything💕🙌
Planning on reading a lot today because I've been reading this book for a week which is so unacceptable😳 I'm still reading Starcrossed and I really like it, the plot keeps developing and getting really interesting. I loooove the Greek mythology element, I love anything with Greek mythology😍 What are you reading?
