Growing up, my dream was to one day have a Beauty and the Beast-style home library.

While that hasn't happened yet due to lack of space in the room that I'm renting, I've been living my dreams vicariously through the #bookstagram community.

Known for their organised bookshelves, aesthetic book cover photos, and bite-sized reviews, this bibliophilic niche of Instagram has inspired me not only to read more, but to save enough money to amass a sizeable collection of hardcover books in the future.

Although this community is well-established in America and the U.K., it's also starting to gain ground here in Singapore - perhaps especially now, since we're island-bound, and books provide a means of escape.

So whether you love reading, want to start reading, or simply like starting at beautiful flat lays, here are the Singapore-based #bookstagrams you should follow.
