Books, Baths & Boobs – Recreating Bookstagram Images: Part 8

Alas! We´ve come to the end of Books, Baths & Boobs. Today I´ll reveal my final Bookstagram recreation. I thought I´d save the best for last, you know? To show the most controversial theme of all Bookstagram themes:

 

Books & Boobs.

 

I bet you´ve been wondering where the boobs part in the title fits into my series.  Surely, Bookstagrammers wouldn´t… Or would they?

I´m here to tell you they do. And I´ve recreated one of these Books & Boobs features. Why? Because I can. Because I wanted to.

Contrary to popular belief – Bookstagram is not reduced to books only. As you´ve seen from all my other Bookstagram recreations.. Bookstagram is about creativity. There are no rules to creativity. Use the tools you have in order to create beautiful Bookstagram content.

 

Some Bookstagrammers feature books.

Some Bookstagrammers want to talk about books. 

 

The Bookstagram feature below belongs to the Bookstagram blogging styles that want to stop someone from scrolling further and get them interested enough to want to read their book-related captions. I´m perfectly fine with that.

I chose a Bookstagram image from Bookstagrammer @odm87 to recreate.

This. Is. Beautiful. odm87 has an insta-feed to die for. She has a lovely mix of book features alongside stunning images of herself WITH books. Her captions are book-related and engaging. This is creativity. I always love when this Bookstagrammer uploads a new image.

I guess it´s time to reveal my copy, huh?  I guess it´s fair to say that whatever I do, however hard I try… I won´t ever come close to the original Bookstagram image from @odm87.  I can´t reach that woman´s waters. Doesn´t mean I can´t have fun trying, though, right?

If I had to categorize my copy I´d say it belongs on the `decent` shelf. I don´t have long light blonde hair ( at the moment ) and… I´m not as blessed in the chest department as the Bookstagrammer is… but then again… I´m not blessed with photography skills or decorating skills, either.

 

How Did I Recreate odm87´s Bookstagram Image?

 

#1   You don´t need much. Just yourself, a bra ( that would help ) and a book. Maybe someone to help with the shot ( you need two hands to hold the book in place ). I started out with the help of my husband but eventually, I removed him from his photographer’s job and set up a stool on my bed then propped my phone on it and let the self-timer do its magic.

 

#2   Filters are your friend. Cropping is your best friend. The image itself wasn´t difficult and neither was photoshopping everything in place. In fact- you´re more occupied with working on the image than taking it. I think I spent a total of 30 minutes with this feature. 

 

My Conclusion

 

Personally, I liked this recreation. It was super easy and fun. I totally get the appeal of this theme. I understand why some Bookstagrammers take this bookish route. You don´t have to be a fan of these types of images but you can definitely appreciate their beauty. I´d encourage any Bookstagrammer to try this Books & Boobs theme out ( should there be interest ). Most Bookstagrammers chat about the featured book and throw in how their day was while this type of feature allows a Bookstagrammer to talk about almost anything bookish. You can approach a controversial topic, pick a tagline from your favorite book and talk about that, you can ask book-related questions or even throw in a poem you saw and discuss the meaning/beauty of that. A huge bonus is that this book and boob thing could be an ego booster ( should anyone compliment on nice legs, nice cleavage, a beautiful back ).

 

Would I use my copy as an actual Bookstagram feature? Maybe. Lol.

 

It´s come to my attention that quite a few people don´t approve of this Bookstagram content because ( and I quote ) “They have nothing to do with books.” even if a book is included. I´m glad I´m here to clear up this nonsense because every Bookstagram feature is about a book or a book-related topic.

 

NOTE: If you´re a Bookstagrammer and would like to do this type of feature for your Bookstagram feed but are hesitant because of your body… Let me tell you something:

Screw it. No one´s perfect. I´m 37 years old and my body has survived 2 pregnancies. My glamour days have long passed. Didn´t stop me, though.

 

On Kind Note: If you´re a Bookstagrammer who doesn´t approve of this type of feature: No one´s stopping you from looking away.

 

That´s it, people. This was my last Bookstagram Recreation gig. I may, or may not feel moved to do another round sometime in the future. Possibly after I´ve recovered from doing these.

 


What do you think? Is this a recreation done right or is this a copy gone wrong? What are your thoughts on Books & Boob features? Let me know in the comments below. I´d love to chat. ❤


 

 

Thank you so much for following this experiment. I hope you enjoyed.

Books, Baths & Boobs – Recreating Bookstagram Images: Part 4

Bookstagram

A place filled with comfortable white bedsheets and knowledge.

 

Now that we´ve already talked about Books & CoffeeBooks & Bubble Baths and Books & Outdoors it´s time to discuss my next Bookstagram image recreation:  Books & Beds.

The Books & Bed theme is probably the most envied type of Bookstagram feature there is ( according to all the comments under those images ). Why? Well, because they´re just SO DAMN BEAUTIFUL. It´s basically bookish art. Fine, clean, stark white bookish art.

Bookish art that serves two purposes: 1) to look good. 2) To promote a book.

A feature like this is supposed to stop someone from scrolling further. It´s more or less an invitation to read the caption where a book is promoted / a book blog promotes themselves. This is a normal book blogging strategy, not rocket science. But I find it the hardest way to blog, if I´m honest.

After having given this theme much thought I finally found it in me to approach this type of image recreation. All I needed was a ton of shit I don´t have.

From all the beautiful Books & Bed Bookstagram images I chose one from Bookstagrammer  @acourtofwordsandpages

20190825_0103545643503988985427556.jpg

 

There´s no denying how beautiful this looks. And if I´m honest- I was a little terrified of copying this image. Why? Because it looks like hard work to me. It looks perfect. It´s so… white-ish. So, I gave it my best. 150%.

Here´s my 150%.

 

20190826_1514485259810030665575903.jpg
For me, I failed miserably. I´ll tell you why.

 

Here´s What Happened

 

#1  I had to make a few calls. The only things I had on hand were my books and the piece of cardboard. The candles and the white coffee cup & saucer were from my mother in – law. The wooden clothespins, the single pages, and the lavender & vase were from my mom and the white bedsheet…. the hardest item to borrow ( because no one has white bedding around here ), was from my neighbor.

20190826_1450578034168080991347055.jpg

 

The experiment hadn´t even started and I was already having problems.

If you´re asking yourselves why I don´t own most of the objects in the picture…

I´m not the decorating type. And, I have kids. I don´t own matching dishes or silverware, let alone saucers for tea/coffee cups. Candles… I´m just not into candles. Let´s not even discuss the white sheet.

Once I had everything together the placements began.

 

#2  You need to be careful. Once that mug has something in it and you place it on your bed then you begin to sweat. The books you open don´t necessarily stay in place so you have to be careful and quick. I held my breath every time I had to readjust the setup.  I didn´t want chocolate milk on the white sheet and I certainly didn´t want to clean it off my mattress or have it spill over my books.

 

#3   Another 2 hours of my life I won´t get back. Add the time I spent collecting everything and the time I spend returning the items to their rightful owners and you can say I spent roughly around 3 hours.

 

My Conclusion

 

For me, this wasn´t worth it. Not worth my time, not worth the sweat I involuntarily invested. I was frustrated from start to finish. I realized that my creativity lies elsewhere. My role is to admire Books & Bed Bookstagram images, not to copy them. I´m just not interested in going the extra mile for a simple image that means so little to me.

I have a newfound respect for those who do this daily/weekly or even once.

Although I´m not too keen on creating this type of content again I´d still recommend giving this a go if anyone were interested in trying this whole thing out. 


 

What do you think? Do you like to see this type of Bookstagram content? Have you tried the Books & Bed theme before? I´d love to hear your thoughts on this. ❤

 


 

Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post. I fully appreciate it.

Books, Baths & Boobs – Recreating Bookstagram Images: Part 1

Bookstagram

A community of clever minds who specialize in visual book creativity.

Welcome to Books, Baths & Boobs- The place where I´ll be recreating Bookstagram images from Bookstagrammers I follow. Or, in other words:

“Hey, look what I´ve always wanted to recreate. I finally found some time so here I am. Yippie!”

Today´s the start of my new bookish experiment and I thought it would be best to start with something that´s been done a million times over by countless Bookstagrammers- Books & Coffee features.

And because this popular Bookstagram theme has been copied so often I thought I´d also give it a try. I mean- It doesn´t look too difficult. What can go wrong? It´s just a coffee and a book. Well, all this sounds simple but for me, it won´t be easy.

  1. I´ve never done a coffee & book pic before
  2. I live in a coffee-free household.

I would have to pick an image that´s not too difficult to begin with. Something simple. Something I won´t spend all day fussing over.

I´ve chosen a Bookstagram image from Instagram user:  openasabookworm

 

20190825_0102122133280517219008769.jpg

 

( NOTE: If you ever get the chance then please pop over and give that woman some love because she has AMAZING book features. I envy this bookstagram talent )

Looks fairly simple, right? Five same sized mugs and books. As I said- A walk in the park.

Now, for the great recreation reveal.

Tadaaaaa!

 

20190826_1057173997345080619535634.jpg

 

What do ya think? Is this a recreation well done, or is this a piss poor copy of the original?

But what about the whole process? Was this as simple as I thought it would be? It would be best to give you a rundown on how this image came to be. Because I assure you, there´s more to it than meets the eye.

 

How It Was Done

 

#1 – Preparation is key. I needed 5 books. The featured paperbacks are from P.C. Cast´s `Goddess Summoning`series. The 5 mugs all needed to be the same size as they are in the original image. Since I wasn´t about to go out and buy coffee I decided to go the fake coffee route. Coke, balsamico, water, milk… Whatever liquid´s dark enough.

 

20190826_1001085380624160762750493.jpg

 

 

#2 – Become the mad-fake-coffee-doctor. I admit, this was the fun part of this whole experiment. I got to mix balsamic dressing with water and milk. 

 

picture15668625990534692610567378489454.jpg

Which was a bit nasty, to be honest. The smell of balsamic dressing with milk wasn´t pleasant. And the end result wasn´t too great, either. I don´t recommend doing this.

 

 

picture15668627992022336241694000243301.jpg

 

This, I can totally recommend. Using Coca-Cola was a much better idea. A little messier but hey… This is fake coffee science. It´s not supposed to be clean. After I added milk I was sort of satisfied with the coffee illusion result.

 

#3 – Getting the right angle is also key. Look, I´m short. I have to use chairs and stools to reach stuff. I also had to use chairs to get the right angle for this recreation shot.

 

20190826_1049153812352108910444981.jpg

 

My Conclusion

 

Fuck the walk in the park. All this was too much work for a simple book feature. I spent nearly 2 hours mixing the fake coffee, carefully dragging 5 full mugs to my living room and rearranging the mugs, lining them up with the books. I had a near-death experience while standing on my chairs. And all while sweating my ass off in this unholy 34-degree heat. At this point I don´t even care if I succeeded or not. I just don´t want to ever do this again. THAT is how fed up I am.

Book & Coffee Bookstagram images are pretty to look at and I´m in awe of anyone who goes to these lengths to create these pictures. I sure hope these Bookstagrammers continue to create these amazing Book & Coffee features because I sure as hell won´t. I can´t and am not willing to invest that much time for one image.

 

Oh! I almost forgot!

Before I leave I think it would be best to mention that, despite this being a wasteful experiment, not all had gone to waste. Some of the Coke survived and was put to good use. The balsamic dressing and milk didn´t.

8 Reasons Why I´m Saying Good-Bye To Instagram

Post Inspired By:  Jason Journals


 

Take a pic. Take more than one pic. Spend 5 minutes – 1 hour getting the right angle and chasing after the right lighting.

Use no filters. Use all filters. Spend even more time trying to get the picture perfect shot to present to your friends, family, followers, fellow bloggers and authors. Because you want to show your latest creation. And before you know it you´ve spent the better half of your afternoon for one pic.

Does this sound familiar? It probably does.

I´m talking about Instagram. The app that has brought me joy, and at the same time, has made my life miserable. For an unreasonable time I´ve been thinking about just throwing the towel and deleting Instagram. It wasn´t until I stumbled upon Jason´s   @ Jason Journals own post about deleting his Instagram account that helped me make me next move. Because I was an unhappy Instagrammer / Bookstagrammer.

Those who follow me on Instagram already know I´ve used the app for blog purposes only. I think I posted a private pic or two, but that was it. Every pic of mine was dedicated to books, reading books and… promoting books. Because that´s what a book blogger does, right?

Yes, well… I´ve learned there are a few ways to utilize Instagram as a book blogger.

 

  •  Using The App As A Branch Blog

Many book bloggers will have their main blog and use other social media platforms as a way of promoting themselves / their main blog. A branch blog can also be seen as an extension blog. This will gain new followers who don´t necessarily want to visit a main blog.

 

  •    Using The App As Their Main Blog

There are quite a few book bloggers who´ve decided against the traditional way of blogging via blog and just picked a social media to get their thoughts / opinions across.

 

  •   Using The App Because It Belongs To Blogger Etiquette

Because what type of blogger are you if your face isn´t plastered all over the place?

 

  •   Using The App For The Fun Of It

These bloggers just want to share their latest reads and connect with others.

 

This is all great and dandy. There is absolutely nothing wrong with whatever a bookstagrammer does. Promote a book / an author… Show off your current read… Have fun and go wild with your creativity.  Me? I think I´ve had enough.

 

I definitely used Instagram as a branch blog and because I thought I´d dabble in a little fun in between all the review writing and discussion posts. Don´t get me wrong, I did have fun. Sadly enough I spent the majority of my time being more frustrated and feeling let down than anything else. Why? I´m glad you asked.


 

#1   Being A Bookstagrammer Is Time Consuming

It is. A simple fact no one can deny. Time will never be on anyones side if they have smaller children, have a job and a social life. It´s about priorities and mine prevent me from spending loads of time editing pictures and coming up with decent captions. I just feel like I´m wasting my time.

 

 

#2    The Ads

This is something I truly don´t care for, yet 2/3 of my feed is littered with ads. I have to literally click the search box and type in a certain bookstagrammers name in order to see what they´ve posted. Everything else is about make-up, hair products, and hotel recommendations. I looked up make-up once in my life and Instagram thinks I need a shit load of war paint to brighten my day. No. I don´t want to see a make-up ad. I want to see what people posted.

 

 

 

#3   Creativity Drowns On Instagram

This is the saddest part of being a bookstagrammer. There are countless blogs uploading one brilliant feature after another and what happens? They drown. Their work drowns. If you don´t hashtag the shit out of your pics and tag the right people then you might get seen by 40 others if you´re lucky. This has nothing to do with the creativity or the ability to engage a following. This has everything to do with the app itself. Sure, Instagram is user friendly and has cool features. But what are those things worth when you drown before you even have a chance?

 

 

#4    The Algorithm

Another thing I don´t care for. It´s a little frustrating when I know my friend, who lives two streets down, just uploaded a pic of her dog and I see it two days later. Not to forget my own posts. Since I blog books on Instagram the whole purpose of my blogging on Instragram is to reach an audience. That can´t happen if I slip down the Insta – feed chain. I´ve heard one bookstagrammer say there´s a way to beat the algorithm. I honest to God do not want to invest my time with this anymore than I already have.

 

 

#5    Competition

I´m competitve but in a positive way. A little competition in the book blog world has never bothered me because I see my fellow book bloggers as creative people with unique styles. I can´t reach their waters and they can´t reach mine. But bookstagrammers are becoming vicious beasts. Since Instagram is about showing off creativity, many book bloggers are desperate and will do all sorts of things to get noticed, for example: Taking an idea without giving credit to the original source.

 

 

#6    Seeing Repetitive Content

It´s truly a great feeling once you´ve found “your book”. The one story that has emotionally touched you in more than one way. I get it. I´ve been there before, myself, and can understand the urge to want to tell the whole world about the awesome book you´ve read. But there´s a fine line between recommending a book and forcefully shoving it down someone´s throat. This happens in form of a bookstagrammer uploading a million features for one book, probably until the next book in that series is published which can take up to a few months.

I. Can´t. Take. It. Anymore.

It bores me shitless to see 1 book 800 times. I also get annoyed when I see 500 candle features.

 

 

#7    My Age

I´m not sure what the average age for Instagram is but I´m pretty sure I´m far from it. Age has never been a problem for me. But sometimes an age gap can be annoying. I´ve been in a few Instagram book groups where I was the oldest. THE oldest, bordering on granny age with my 37 in a group of 16-18 year olds. All´s fine until they find out my age.

“Omg, I never knew!”    Yes, I never knew I´d get this far, either. Yet, here I am.

“Wow, that´s an impressive age.”    I think 90 is an impressive age. Not 37.

“That is OLD.”   Yes, in your world I already have one foot in my grave.

“You´r generation is known for not having the right kind of empathy.” And with 16 you´ve suddenly become an expert on generation traits and empathy levels?

“Omg, you have kids?!”    Yes, and I´m still alive. Who´d have thought?

These remarks don´t come from a negative place. I know these younger bloggers can´t really wrap their heads around being a 37 year old. I´m not offended by this. Quite the opposite.  But it does get annoying after a while.

Age becomes a problem if you make it one. I don´t make it one. Others often unintentionally do. I don´t appreciate this happening on an app that´s supposed to be fun.

 

 

#8    Finding Something To Say

I consider myself a wordy person. I have an average vocabulary. But I cannot come up with a caption to include with my pictures. Why? No clue. It´s like my brain does an automatic shut down. And because I struggle with a caption I thought I´d just upload a pic and be done with it. I received a PM on Instagram from someone kindly reminding me I had to include a caption. * sigh *

 

 

#9    Unwanted Tips From Bookstagrammers

This is the only point that pisses me off- The constant tips from fellow bloggers. Tips I never asked for in the  first place.

I received quite a few free of charge tips on how to clean up my pictures and how to gain followers.

Look, 1) I never asked.   2) I never said I disliked my pics. I actually like what I upload.    3) I never complained about not having a large following.

“You have to include yourself in the follow trains.”

“You´re not promoting the right books.” 

“You´re using the wrong filters.” 

And I´m sitting here thinking about what gave these people the impression that I need help when I never asked for help. Why? WHY?

 



 

To sum this up: Using Instagram for book blogging purposes is not an option for me anymore. It was fun. It was creative. But I´ve lost interest because of feeling pressured and frustrated. Now I feel lighter knowing I have one less social media to tackle.

It´s time to bid the app a farewell. But before I go off and delete my account I´d like to share my favorite features from my 3 year Instagram journey. Y´all ready?

The Art Of Pointing Fingers At Book Bloggers

ATTENTION

It is advised to leave all pitch forks at the doorstep of this blog. Thank you.

 

Maybe the title of this blog post should be “The Art Of Calling People Out On Their Shit” because it truly suits the purpose of this post much better. Or perhaps I should turn this post into a ” How To Start A Bookish Witch Hunt” guide…. Not sure.

Either way- I saw something ( again ) that caught my interest.

I know, I know. Wasn´t it just a few weeks ago when I spotted the last bookish faux pas? It was and it pains me to point out the latest ( and loudest ) tactless acts in this oh so love – sharing book community done by certain online personalities.

 

 

So many people believe us book loving folks are harmless introverts who mind our own business because our noses are constantly stuck in book cracks. We´re all clones of 1970´s librarians. The reality, though, is that we´re just as human as non readers are, and therefore behave like normal everyday people ( unless we´re reading. Then I can´t guarantee what us book people are capable of ). Some of us are genuine and nice and others are just mean shits with too much time on their hands.

 

So, the other day I spotted quite a few posts on how people didn´t quite approve of  Instagrammers “fake coffee”.

 

 

Instagrammers creating fake coffee for pics? Does this mean someone´s trying to sell us all a lie? You mean to tell me, ME, that there ain´t no coffee in those wonderful mug pics I see all the time?

 

 

Well, no, Bitch…. I´m not shook. Not in the slightest. It´s no secret that most Instagram coffee shots don´t have actual coffee in them. Seeing recent posts from quite a few book – people bitch over this matter wasn´t earth shattering. Just simple complaints over the fact that the world is sneaky and corrupt. I can live with that.

But here´s where it gets interesting:

The more complaints I saw the more every complaint sounded like they came from frustrated people. Some even went as far and virtually pointed fingers at certain book bloggers who openly discussed their bookstagram / coffee voodoo. And the more I investigated the more I spotted  hurt people ratting out other people by adding blog links.

 

 

Really? Is this what we´ve reduced ourselves to? ( not including myself here ) Complaining about fake coffee and trying to put others on the spot for doing so?

 

20

 

Soph Is Blogging published a blog post on Bookstagrammers And Their Fake Coffee and even cared enough to reveal her own secrets on how to create great coffee dupes for the ever unforgiving Instagram ( I am mentioning Soph because a link to her blog was posted by one of the many complainants ).

You can tell her post was created to act as a little guide on how to do the fake coffee trick. I don´t know about you but I find this extremely interesting, even as a non coffee drinker. In no way is this a terrible thing. Soph is welcoming others to do the same.

I was always aware of the fact that something wasn´t 100% right with those Insta- coffee pics but I also never cared enough to dig deeper into matter. Because I´m not passionate enough about it but I still find it really cool to find out how coffee dupes are made.

Here´s the thing- Fake coffee is nothing different from the beautiful pimped burgers in Tv commercials. Am I sad about it? No, not really. Soph is more or less offering her pics to her fans / followers, presenting them with something that looks stunning. It´s her creation and she´s spending time getting something up that´s perfect for her.

Now, this doesn´t mean I´m a fan of fake coffee pics. This just means I don´t care enough about them.

I, too, fake some of my Instagram pics and like Soph… I´m not making a secret out of it. Because it should go without saying that most Instagram shots don´t resemble reality. I certainly don´t always have a mug near me when I´m reading. And I sure as hell don´t set my book down and keep it in that position when I´m reading. I don´t even read near the window because my window sills ( as lovely as they are ) don´t allow comfortable seating. My bones would protest after 30 minutes! But my window sill does work wonders for Bookstagram pics. So does the forest in my back yard, and trust me on this one… I do NOT go there for random chapter reads ( mainly due to ticks, boars, foxes, and random creeps. What can I say? I´m careful and shit). Safety is high on my life list so whatever I do with books for Instagram- It´s not what I usually do.

For example: I don´t have chilled walks in the middle of a normally busy road with a book in hand.

And my Disney moment in the woods? Yeah. It´s fake.

 

 

 

My point is- Bookstagram pictures are often staged shots. And that´s okay. Because that´s what Instagram has become- A place to show off creativity. It is not a place where “shallow”  people ( as one complainant kindly stated ) play.

Which brings me to my next point ( and this will not be a popular opinion ) :

I´m for naming this child by its name: People who complain about fake coffee are envious. Or (!!!) they feel like they´ve been cheated on by society. Because I´m positive these complaints don´t come from a place of awe and appreciation.

It´s the same thing with children during art class. There´s always one special booger who will call out on the one artsy kid who dared to cheat the system by taking their wet paint brush and letting it glide over the colored pencil drawing to create a watercolor effect instead of using normal watercolors.

Yes, sometimes bookstagrammers can make other bookstagrammers feel inadequate. But that´s entirely up to the bookstagrammer to see the difference between reality and a lie. Once a person whines about something being “unfair” and “makes their lives difficult” then it´s no one elses problem but theirs. These people have no right to complain over peanuts.

I create “fake” ( although, I´m still having troubles seeing the fake aspect of all this ) because I want to challenge myself. Can I be as creative as…. ? Can I do that too? What if I recreated that Christmas book tree? And I even publish my failures and include the tutorial that led to the failure.

For someone to point their finger at a book blogger  for wanting to be helpful and even share a link to publicly put said book blogger on display ( also hoping to find sympathizers afterwards ) is not the way to go about things in this book community.

No one likes a tattletale, especially when it´s done on the internet. Because that shit can backfire.

 

If you feel I´ve addressed you in particular then I´m sorry I won´t be able to help you. This is a beautiful yet tough love community. Pull those big girl panties up and move on because there are larger issues to tackle in this neck of the woods ( such as self published authors and their sky high book prices ).

 

ATTENTION… again

Hurt bookstagrammers, offended book people and the literary sheriffs are able to collect their pitch forks again. Make sure to direct yourselves in the direction of your usually prefered hangouts to discuss this matter in private. Thank you.  

 

Should you be like me and feel utterly annoyed by this issue ( tbh- it´s bugging the shit out of me ) then feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below. Imma dying to see what your thoughts on fake coffee are and if you think it´s okay to point fingers at others publicly.

And and and * waves hands enthusiastically * IF you´re against fake coffee, and you´re willing to have a civilized conversation about it, then please give us annoyed foot folk some insight on what exactly annoys you about the subject. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

With that being said…. I bid you all a farewell, my dear bookish Padawans. May the literary force be with you.

Much love,
