ANNOUNCEMENT: Launch of @bookishpip (my new bookstagram!)

I follow so many bookstagrams and have been inspired to read many a title by the reviews/recommendations of accounts that are authentic, honest and so passionate about books. It only occurred to me a few days ago that I could create one, too!

After much deliberation, I decided to take the plunge and create a new platform for all my writing/recent reads on Instagram. I’ve long used my personal account for the purposes of posting short, succinct reviews of books but don’t have a particularly large community of bookworms to share my joys and frustrations with after completing a read. With that in mind, I’ve launched @bookishpip 💫📚☠️🤷🏾‍♀️💜

Especially while being unemployed, I have really drawn upon my passion for literature as more than a recreational interest. The perspective I have gained is phenomenal. My ultimate dream career would be to work in the editorial department of a book publisher and I have had this on the brain for the better part of six months, though the dream itself was born when I was very young and realised it pained me to get my nose out of a book, no matter how enticing a social event was… As juvenile as it may be, and as painful as the persistent rejections have been, I feel a strong determination to put myself out there for the first time and strive to build a career I am truly passionate about.

My new Insta account is a foray into the world of Net Galley, Goodreads and social media. I hope it will be a platform that enables me to connect more socially with other users of the aforementioned sites, and perhaps I can even find some professional opportunities along the way.

Wish me luck!
