25 Twitter Accounts for Book Lovers to Follow

Dann Albright 16-06-2016

There’s nothing better than a good book, but when you can’t be reading, the next best thing might just be a bookish Twitter feed! These 25 accounts will give book lovers plenty of fun book-related things to scroll through while dreaming about getting back to your latest read.


New York Times Books (@nytimesbooks)

The New York Times book section is a great source of book reviews, reflections on the state of writing and reading literature, and other bookish articles. Authors sometimes stop by to review other books, too, which is really cool. (Don’t forget that you can use IFTTT to get NYT books articles How to Use IFTTT to Supercharge Your Kindle IFTTT is a fantastic service for automating all kinds of things. But it's not just for smart home automation and saving money. It can also help you supercharge your Kindle experience. Read More  delivered to you!)

Guardian Books (@GuardianBooks)

Providing much the same kind of bookish greatness as the New York Times, this account is a solid foundation for the the east-of-the-Atlantic book scene with reviews, author interviews, and fun asides like an article on Vladimir Nabokov’s butterfly art.

NY Review of Books (@nybooks)


The slightly narcissistic self-anointing as “The premier literary-intellectual magazine in the English language” aside, the New York Review is a great place for readers. Not only do you get book reviews, but you’ll also get some phenomenally well-written articles of other types, as well.

LA Times Books (@latimesbooks)

Though not as well-known as its east-coast contemporaries, the LA Times‘ book blog and newspaper section are great for reviews (which they provide more of than some other feeds), author interviews, and essays.

NPR Books (@nprbooks)


With a steady stream of great book reviews that span many genres and styles, NPR Books is a great place to find more things to put on your reading list How to Organize Your Out-of-Control Reading List Right Now A reading list serves a lot of functions -- from practical to inspirational. But it can also get out of hand. Using these tips to manage your reading hobby can do wonders for your life. Read More , no matter what kind of books you like to read.

Book Riot (@bookriot)

One of my personal favorites, Book Riot’s large and diverse base of contributors share great lists, reviews, essays, and irreverent reflections on everything related to reading. Be sure to check out their great podcasts, too! (They’re some of the best bookish podcasts Listen Up, Book Lovers: 10 of the Best Podcasts for Bibliophiles If you're always on the lookout for great book recommendations, these podcasts will keep your “to read” list full, and offer some insightful commentary into the lives of authors everywhere.

NY Public Library (@nypl)


Book recommendations, book-related news, author interviews, and a healthy dose of humor make @nypl a Twitter favorite for book nerds. Another very active feed, this one will definitely keep your Twitter feed full of fun book stuff!

The Millions (@The_Millions)

A long-running and very popular literary site, The Millions is a great source of reviews, literary musings, and the ebook find of the day, which highlights a great deal on a great book.

Electric Literature (@ElectricLit)

With everything from book reviews to “If You’re a Writer You May Be a Psychopath,” @ElectricLit is an absolute must for book lovers. This feed also retweets a lot of great book-related stuff from other sites, making it a great place to dive into the world of books on Twitter.


Literary Hub (@thelithub)

Book news, essays, anything else related to literature, and a dose of cultural criticism can be found on Literature Hub’s very active Twitter feed. It’s straightforward, and will give you plenty of great stuff to read while you’re away from your book.

Slate Book Review (@SlateBooks)

No matter how you feel about Slate, it’s tough to deny that their book reviews team is a good one; you’ll find a lot of articles here that will make you think more deeply about the books that you’re reading and the creative process.

Amazon Books (@amazonbooks)

It’s the biggest book store in the world, so it makes sense that Amazon has a lot to say about books. Lists of recommended reads, reviews, and interesting stories about the reading life abound.

HuffPost Books (@HuffPostBooks)

The Huffington Post writes about everything under the sun, and books are no exception. One of the things @HuffPostBooks does well is recommend books that are relevant to today’s concerns: recent suggestions include books on war, global pandemics, and racial diversity.

Melville House (@melvillehouse)

Literary diehards will want to follow a lot of publishers, but Melville House is one that everyone should check out; their mix of humor, author interviews, book recommendations, and reflections on reading and writing is much more personal than the marketing-focused feeds of other houses.

Interesting Literature (@InterestingLit)

You never know what’ll be coming up next on this feed, but you can be sure that it’ll be interesting! From great author quotes to fun facts and book lists to historical tidbits, this is a great feed for upping your literary trivia skills.

Star Wars Books (@swbooks)

This won’t appeal to everyone, but I have to include because I’m so glad that it exists: it’s a Twitter feed about Star Wars books. Lots of information about Marvel’s Star Wars comics and Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath series, as well as retweets of reviews and other good stuff.
