I think one of the best things about being a book blogger is the sense of community. Reading has traditionally been considered a solitary activity, so we readers appreciate it that much more when we meet someone who loves the same books we do. Of course, Twitter plays a huge part in maintaining the online reading community, and the 10 accounts listed below are the bookish “tweeters” I simply couldn’t do without. They’re clever, insightful, and often hilarious—a blessing to all book lovers everywhere! 🙂
Ten Bibliophiles to Follow on Twitter:
- Cait from Paper Fury. Of course, any list of bookish Twitter accounts must begin with the illustrious Cait. Queen of cake, dragons, and quirky humor, her tweets about book-induced flails are the highlight of my day.

- Diana from Fiction Food. Diana is a fellow member of the tiny but ever-growing community of book bloggers that focuses on food. Her recipes look delicious, and of her photographs all I can say is #blogginggoals. 😉
- NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). NaNo is a group rather than a person, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a vital member of the bookish Twitter community. Though they sometimes tweet about important book events, NaNo primarily focuses on books that are still being written. Namely, they’re a group for writers. Whether you take part in National Novel Writing Month or not, the NaNo twitter is great for general writing support (especially their writing sprint account!).

- Victoria from Stori Tori’s Blog. Tori tweets about all kinds of bookish things: recent reads, songs to write by, teas based on books, etc. I love when she analyzes a particular story element in a book/movie and shows how it’s been successfully (or sometimes unsuccessfully) implemented.
- Nicole from Feed Your Fiction Addiction. Nicole shares lots of bookish goodies (reading challenges, giveaways, mini reviews, etc.), but her discussion posts are some of the best I’ve ever read. They’re well thought out and insightful, and she’s one of those awesome people who always responds to comments, turning it into a true discussion! 🙂
- Sara Letourneau: Fantasy Writer, Avid Reader / Tea Drinker, and Character Evolutionary. Sara shares writing tips, book reviews, and author interviews. I also love that she shares cool tea stuff, like this Hobbit-themed tea by Whispering Pines! 🙂 If you’re a fellow writer, I highly recommend checking out the writing worksheets on her blog.
- MuggleNet. Why should you follow them? Um, why would you NOT? #RavenclawPride

- Goodreads. The Goodreads site is a great way to track your reading progress and writing events, but their Twitter account is a veritable treasure trove of bibliophile delights: book humor, pictures of libraries, book event updates, must-read lists, quotes…the list goes on and on! 🙂

- EpicReads. These folks have everything: quizzes, bookish news, book previews, and book humor. Their twitter is awesome, but I particularly like their Youtube series, Book Nerd Problems:
- Between the Pages. Not exclusively book-related, but if you want to see some awesome pop culture themed cakes, cookies, and various other delectables, Between the Pages is for you! Check out these gorgeous Alice in Wonderland macarons:
