Top 5 Wednesday: Multiple Editions

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.

Ridiculous October Book Haul!

Hey guys! I am calling this the Ridiculous October Book Haul because I bought a ridiculous amount of books this month! Stating the obvious, much? I honestly think this crazy book obsessed demon possessed me at the start of the month and went on a massive splurge in Waterstones. In our defence, I bought some beautiful books and scored a few signed ones!

1) La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One by Philip Pullman

I was seriously excited for this book and when I saw Waterstones had a special signed edition limited to 5,000 copies for £35 I had to get one. I had to. So imagine my relief when they’d all sold out and I’d pre-ordered one the day they released them on the website. But imagine my disappointment when I got home and noticed it was damaged. I was heartbroken. I took it back to Waterstones but obviously I couldn’t get another because they’d all sold out. They knocked £10 off so I only ended up paying £25 but it still kind of annoys me. Despite the fault it is a truly beautiful book and they’ve done an amazing job. Alongside this I also got the £10 hardback so these two books were an expensive buy.

Exciting October Book Releases!

Hey guys! October is going to be fantastic! It’s all happening! I’ve poured all of my excitement for these amazing books coming out in October into this post because I feel like I’m going to explode if don’t talk about them! Hopefully you are just as excited as me for them and if not, then I hope you have some other exciting books coming out too!

Shadowblack1) Shadowblack by Sebastien De Castell 

I’m so shocked this book is coming out next week! Finally a sequel we don’t have to wait a year for, hallelujah! I read the first one not too long ago and it was amazing, I gave it five stars on Goodreads. It had the best plot twist I have come across in a while. It honestly left me with my jaw hanging open, it was so shocking and unexpected. I loved it! Kellen was a completely different person by the end of the book because of this and I’m so looking forward to meeting this new Kellen in Shadowblack! I’m also excited to see the thieving squirrel cat again, he’s so sarcastic! This book comes out 5th October and I’m counting down the days!
