Hey guys! I’m not sure if this was actually ever a topic for Top 5 Wednesday because I found it in the ‘Suggestions for Future Topics’ section but it looked like a fun one to do. I love buying multiple editions of the same book be it if that the book is signed, is a special limited edition or just has a different cover. So lets get into it! Here are my top 5 books with multiple editions:
Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
I actually have three copies of Lady Midnight because they released three different versions and I was just like, take my money!!!! I purchased the normal paperback from Waterstones and also the special limited edition hardback which was signed. I then purchased the WHSmith edition because it had fan art which was beautiful, by the way. So I spent a lot of money on one book but I regret nothing because it is Cassandra Clare and she is awesome. It was totally worth it to own these three beautiful editions.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I own two copies of The Book Thief and as you can probably already tell, one is the normal paperback and the other is the tenth anniversary edition. I bought the US version because it was so much more beautiful than the UK version. I am so glad Book Depository exists! Anyway, I just love this story so much and it’s so touching. It’s one of my favourite books and when I found out there was a tenth anniversary edition, I just snatched it up right away.
La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One by Philip Pullman
So when I found out that Waterstones was releasing 5,000 limited edition SIGNED copies of Philip Pullman’s new book, I pretty much freaked out. I’d have been absolutely crazy and out of my mind not to get this edition. It was £35 which is a hell of a lot of money for a hardback book but it was so worth it to me and evidently to 5,000 other people because it soon sold out before the book even published! So I was very happy that I managed to grab a copy! I also picked up the normal hardback version so I’d have a less valuable copy to read.
Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo:
I ordered the paperback and then I saw they were doing a special edition hardback which was signed so… of course I had to buy it! It’s so pretty and I think it’s actually only limited to Waterstones which is awesome.
Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu:
So when I saw they were doing the same hardback edition for the Batman story, again I fell in love and wanted to have a really pretty matching series. So now I have two copies of this book but it’s OK because I really loved this book and I am happy with my pretty black and gold edition. I’ll probably end up with 2 copies of Catwoman and Superman now but it’s fine!
So these are just some of my multiple edition books. I have plenty more but I’d be here all day if it wasn’t your top 5! What are some of your favourite multiple edition books? I know I’d buy more than 3 copies of Lady Midnight if they released more in the UK! I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you so much for reading!
