Top 3 Books – Multiple Editions
I created several editions of this “Top 3” books template, which focuses on your favorite books across an array of genres. I hope you have fun filling in these free Instagram story templates!
Coffee & Currently Reading
Posting your coffee mug and the book you are currently reading is a popular trend on Bookstagram with the #coffeeandcurrentlyreading. With this template, just fill in what type of coffee you are currently reading and what you are currently reading. I suggest you add #coffeeandcurrentlyreading for added visibility.
Last, Now, Next
Another popular trend on Instagram is to post the last book you read, the book you are currently reading, and the book you intend to read next. So, simply fill in the blanks as such on this template. I recommend you use #lastnownext for added visibility.
TBR (To Be Read) List
Hold yourself accountable with this reading challenge template on Instagram. Each month you can post your hopeful TBR (“to be read”) list, and then check it off with an emoji or scribble as you complete your own personal challenge.
