    Ohhh, lots of variety!! I love it ❤
    So the publishers decided to print The Winner's Kiss to match the other covers?! I bet fans of the series are happy! I haven't read those books, but I was definitely attracted to the gorgeous covers! Though, I heard some people saying the new cover reflected the story really well! I guess in some cases, we should ignore the cover and just focus on the story XD hahah. I hope you enjoy it! Have you started the series?

    I've heard wonderful things about The Snow Child AND I remember you saying Norwegian Wood is your favourite book – I really need to read it. Have you read any of Murakami's other books? I have been a bit worried about starting, as I haven't read many (if at all) magical realism books. xoxox

      Yes! I think the fans got really annoyed about a mid series cover change and they decided to stick with the originals! hahah
      That’s for the US editions though, I don’t think they were ever going to change it in the UK. I personally loooooove the original covers, they’re so so pretty and I’m reading the trilogy now (2nd book) and loving it! The covers reflect the story really well. I thought the new covers were too similar to the Throne of Glass ones hahah
      Awww that is so sweet of you to remember ❤ and yes, I've been wanting to get my hands on The Snow Child for a while and couldn't resist when I saw it for £1.
      I've read a couple of his books and loved all of them. I've been meaning to read "Kafka on the Shore" for years and haven't yet. Maybe we can buddy read it sometime? ❤ xxxx

    It’s nice to see a balance between some general fiction and YA in your book haul as well. I try doing that, but I always lean to heavily on YA and end up getting on one or two general fiction book.
    I hope you enjoy all of your books!

    This blog post makes me feel two things: so incredibly happy, and so incredibly jealous, haha. But in all seriousness, WHAT AN INCREDIBLE HAUL OF BOOKS!

    I love the new editions of The Mortal Instruments. I have all the old editions, and I just haven’t wanted to spend the money on a second edition of books I already own… but if I had all the money in the world I would buy them in a heartbeat. They are just so damn beautiful xx
