Bookish Instagram is Gearing Up For the Holidays

Whether you celebrate any holidays toward the end of the year or not, it’s always lovely to see all the decorations and twinkling lights. And in the lovely corner I know as bookish Instagram, there’s a whole world of beautiful decor being brought out for the season, with creative bookstagramming to highlight current reads. Here’s a little look at what some folks are doing with their holiday inspiration.

A little bit of spice…

Some baubles…

Seasonal scents…

🎄 December 3 🎄 I was so pleasantly surprised to open my recent @librarylights order and find this little guy added in! I was even more surprised when I took off the lid and saw sparkles! (Swipe to see the sparkles!) I'm so excited to burn it! ❄ Which of your candles is your favourite? ❄ And a big thanks to everyone participating in #merrybookmas17! I love seeing your photos.
