Happy Tuesday, bloggers,
Oh goody, I get to show the world of how weird I am. Scratch that. You probably already know. But I might as well give you more examples, am I right?
Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. The next topic is all about books we don’t want anyone, including other book lovers, touching. Frankly, I don’t let anyone, except my Mom, go near my books. I don’t let anyone borrow them either. So since I don’t own many signed or special copies, they hold more meaning for me. But I may have an awful case of OCD. I don’t know which.
So let’s get to the list, yes? I hope you enjoy the read.
Throne of Glass Collector’s Edition
I’ve barely touched this book. I squealed for several minutes when I finally received my copy. Yes, I have a trade copy, but the collector’s edition is beyond anything I imagined. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the most expensive books in my collection.
Godsgrave Signed First Edition
When I first order Godsgrave, I didn’t realize I purchased the signed first edition. With this series though, buyers rarely find one long after the release date. I knew I lucked out when I got mine.
Owlcrate Special Edition Finale
For a good year, I’ve eyed Owlcrate special boxes and hesitated buying one because I feared the book itself would be damaged in transit. But I’m glad I didn’t let my mind convince me otherwise. The exclusive cover is similar to the trade one, but it’s so much more gorgeous in life. Unless I bought it through a digital signing website, I’d never have a signed copy.
Bitten Hardcover Edition
Yes, Bitten isn’t signed. Nor does it hold monetary value. But I remember the day I found the novel in my home class. And that day was when I knew I wanted to work at a publisher, and I haven’t looked back since.
Kingdom of Ash Exclusive Edition
I have two copies of this edition. I wanted one I could read and the other to collect. And I don’t regret I bought two. Both have custom art on the reverse side of the jacket. And Sarah’s signature is on the front of the book. I may have joined the fandom late, but I wanted to celebrate the finale.
Vengeful Exclusive Edition
Bravo, Sib. Buy the sequel in a series you haven’t read yet. But I know I’ll never get another chance at owning a signed copy of Schwab’s book. Not a chance. I jumped on the chance to own a special Canadian edition.
