  • Oh my god so many amazing book photos in one post

  • Oh, Joy! You are such a lovely photographer and seeing your work on Instagram is so delightful (I’m so glad I found out you had an account, which I have most definitely said before but that DOES NOT MATTER I AM GLAD). Your compsitions are just calming and enthusiastic and gorgeous, and you deserve all the compliments on it.

    I really lov your picture of And I Darken, which has *such* a glorious cover. Books and tea and plants make me so happy. I wish my everyday could assuredly be filled with a bit of all three, and I’m so glad they generally are. I also love your picture of Night Owls- you love that one, don’t you? It’s such an interesting cover and the colours and gold all work together so nicely, and it looks just lovely in your picture. xx

    Such purdy purdy covers! I wanna be just as good with the camera, too!

  • I love that audiobook cover of The Bronze Horseman! It looks sooo pretty! And Night Owls has such a beautiful cover too. I regularly take it off my shelf to stare at it šŸ˜€

  • I always love looking at your pictures! And how organized you are. I don’t work and I have more time than you by a long shot and I am too lazy to do all you do to decorate your house and take beautiful pictures! I am jealous šŸ™‚

  • Oooooh– I’ve heard some chatter about And I Darken lately. I’ll be interested to read your thoughts on that one. I can’t decide if I want to read it or not.

  • Bookporn is the best. <3 Love all of these pictures šŸ˜€ You are awesome Joy. <3 Thank you for sharing šŸ˜€

  • Always lovely šŸ™‚

  • Just gorgeous! How is the audiobook for The Bronze Horseman?

    • Thanks, Amanda. It was long. And awesome. Lol.

  • I love that your Bookstagram is simple and beautiful – I think I try to do too much, considering I don’t have an eye for design. (Not that I do much at all, but I’m often unhappy with the results.)

    • I like the minimalist look. Also, I don’t have enough props to accessorize when I take pictures. Lol.

  • The Bronze Horseman! Sigh

  • shootingstarsmag

    Oo beautiful photos!! I really need to do more bookstagram photos, and I also need to read a lot of these! lol


    • Hahaha! Yes. I’ve read all these except for The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly.

    I always really love looking at your photos, and I want that teacup. Turning books around a different way really grabbed my attention, making me want to know more. You go girl!

  • Maja (The Nocturnal Library)

    I love seeing And I Darken wherever I turn, but especially in one of your gorgeous photos. Such stunning covers, all of them.

  • Jenny @ Supernatural Snark

    So pretty Joy! You take such gorgeous pictures:) I can’t wait to read And I Darken, I’ve heard amazing things about it. And Night Owls has a stunning cover! *pets screen*

    • Me too! I love that she’s the anti-heroine sort.

  • Great book pics

  • Gorgeous! I love the simplicity of your photos! You are a pro!

    • Thanks, Nick. You’re the sweetest. šŸ™‚

  • ChristinaBookAddict

    Gorgeous pictures! I really love the All the Bright Places one — definitely frame worthy!

    • I’m proud of that one. šŸ™‚ Thanks!

  • Keertana @ Ivy Book Bindings

    Your photos are art! I adore these to bits, Joy–thanks for sharing!

  • Melliane

    I always love your pictures

  • I always love stumbling across your photography when I am on instagram. I especially love the one for All the Bright Places with the single flower losing petals. It represents it well.

  • kindlemom1

    Gorgeous pictures!

  • You sure do post some purdy pictures, Joy. šŸ˜€

  • So, so lovely Joy. I love the distressed timber background! And I Darken! I just finished it last week and holy shit, it was awesome. I love fierce characters not swayed by a potential romance. Such an epic read.

    • I’m a bit in, and I can see now how this fierce creature can be misunderstood. She’s so cruel.

  • These pictures are so beautiful, Joy!
