Teen's Exquisite Instagram Account Will Give You Serious Book Envy


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.

“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.

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.
