Hey, what’s up? Hello, my name is Emma And today I’m going to be sharing with you guys the books that I bought/received in the month of September. I have some foreign book covers that I ordered offline, I have some of my most anticipated releases for the rest of the year that were sent to me by publishers, and I finally have my dream books. Just as a heads up, my dream books are not special. You’re going to be like “Emma every single person I know has these books. Why is it so special to you?” But it has a lot of significance to me, and I’m just so unbelievably happy that I finally have them. To add to the excitement of this book haul, I want to thank Scribd for sponsoring this video. If you have not heard of Scribd, it is a subscription service that grants you access to an unlimited amount of e-books and audiobooks Though audiobooks especially can get really expensive, Scribd is only $8.99 per month and you are able to take out and listen to or read however many books you please. I started using Scribd earlier this month, and I’m really satisfied with the service so far. They have a ton of new releases and back list titles, a lot of books that I’m anxious to listen to on audio, so I’m really excited to get through more of their collection. On Scribd, I’m currently listening to The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager, which is an adult psychological thriller about a girl whose cabinmates had disappeared from her summer camp many, many years ago. She was the last person to see them but they haven’t been found since, and as an adult she’s now returning back to this camp the year it reopens for the first time to teach art and potentially put together some clues to find out what happened to those girls all those years ago. I’m still in the beginning, but I’m really enjoying it so far. It’s fulfilling all of my expectations and I expect it to be a really good read for me. So if you are interested in it checking out The Last Time I Lied yourself, you can check the link in the description below and it will take you right to its landing page on Scribd where you can either read it or listen to it. So thank you again to Scribd for sponsoring this video. I’m telling you guys right now I will be abusing that unlimited book checkouts feature because I just cannot stop listening to audiobooks lately, and I’m really happy I found and started using this service. Alrighty, let’s start off with some awesome UK book covers of some books that I love. The first book I bought is Winter Girls by Laurie Halse Anderson I first saw this cover on Hannah from A Clockwork Reader’s channel and I just fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. I was like “I need this.” Winter Girl’s follows a girl that named Cassie who has recently lost her best friend from childhood to an eating disorder and as Cassie has anorexia herself, they sort of fed off of each other’s toxic habits in the past. But now Leah is dead and Cassie has no closure So it is all about Cassie’s struggle with anorexia about her dealing with the grief of losing a friend and not being able to save her and just coming to terms with a lot of truths in her life. I read Winter Girls two years ago, and I really, really loved this novel. I feel it really encaptured my experience as a teen with anorexia, and I think it does a great job of representing what it is like to live with such a disorder. I really loved this cover. I loved the hot pink spine and I’m super happy I have it. The next UK cover I bought is Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody. Daughter of the Burning City is Amanda Foody’s debut novel. It takes place in this fantastical traveling city called Gomorrah where our main character, Serena, has the ability to create illusions that are not real. They are just projections, but they do act as real people. They have their own personalities, their own character interactions, so things take a tragic turn when there is somebody in Gomorrah killing off her illusions one by one and so Serena really has to investigate to find out who it is that are killing their illusions, why, and especially how, because they are not real. I loved Daughter of the Burning City so, so much. I am such Amanda Foody trash. I think her books are fantastic. And she is one of the most talented YA authors to be published in the last few years. I love her books so much. I’m super excited to add to the collection I have of her books. And then the final UK cover I bought for this little section of the haul is City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab, which is her newest middle-grade release. I read City of Ghosts about a month or two ago. I got an ARC at BEA and I was really excited to read it. I ended up really enjoying it. I thought it was just, like, a cute, entertaining middle-grade paranormal story and I’m just so happy to have this gorgeous UK cover. I think this cover is miles better than the US cover, so I actually just opted to buy this one because I just think it’s so striking and it really captures the essence of the book. City of Ghosts is a book that follows a main character named Cassie and she has the ability to pull back the veil between the human world and the spirit world and interact with ghosts. So when Cassie’s parents signed up to host a TV show on the world’s most haunted places and her family uproots to Edinburgh, Cass ends up meeting another girl who has the same abilities as her and can interact with ghosts, and she begins to learn that her powers are a much deeper and darker than she ever imagined. It’s a super cute story. It is perfect for the fall spooky Halloween season, and I would definitely recommend it, and I would especially recommend this gorgeous cover which I am so obsessed with. Next I have two exciting anthologies that were sent to me by HarperCollins Thanks so much Harper, but the first book they sent me is Black Enough Which is a collection of short stories about what it is like to be a black teen in America, and it is edited by Ibi Zoboi It features authors like Justina Ireland, Varian Johnson, Rita Williams-Garcia, Dhonielle Clayton, Kekla Magoon, Leah Henderson, Tochi Onyebuchi, Jason Reynolds, Nic Stone, Liara Tamani, Renée Watson, Tracey Baptiste, Coe Booth, Brandy Colbert, Jay Coles, Ibi Zoboi, and Lamar Giles I love Dohnielle Clayton. I love Nic Stone. I love Brandy Colbert. And there’s a lot of other authors that I’m very excited to read from in the future on here. But I’m just super pumped about this anthology. Diversity in literature something that I’m very passionate about and I really try to promote on my channel, So I just think that this release is going to be so great. It’s literally just like, what, twelve own-voices short stories about black youth written by black authors. I think it’s amazing. I’m really excited for it. It comes out January 2019 and I really cannot wait to read this one. And then the next anthology that Harper sent to me is A Thousand Beginnings and Endings which is edited by Ellen Oh. Now this anthology is a bunch of retellings of myths and legends and so it features authors like Renee Adieh, Elsie Chapman, Sona Charaipotra, Preeti Chhibber, Roshani Chokshi, Aliette de Bodard, Melissa de la Cruz, Julie Kagawa, Rahul Kanakia, Lori M. Lee, E.C. Myers, Cindy Pon, Aisha Saeed, Shveta Thakrar, and Alyssa Wong. This is another really diverse anthology as all of the authors are South and East Asian and it deals with myths and legends from their own cultures. So it’s always really exciting to see people writing about their experience, their history, their myths and legends. So I’m very excited for it. Also, this cover is, like, so dope. I love that it’s very simplistic, but it also has all these little intricate details on it, and these illusions, too. There were myths and legends that are featured in the story. So I’m really excited for this one, too. The next book that I bought in the month of September is The Golden Tower by Holly black and Cassandra Clare, which is the fifth and final book in the Magisterium Series. Earlier this month I drove all the way up to South Hadley, Massachusetts in order to see Cassie and Holly for the release of their event. It was also with Scott Westerfeld and David Levithan, and I loved the whole event, so if you want to check out that really fun day Where me and Doug just drove all the way up just to see Cassie and Holly and come down, you can go watch that I’ll link it below. In preparation for the Magisterium event, I actually caught up on the Magisterium Series and I read books three and four on audio, which I really, really enjoyed. So I’m very excited to dive into the fifth and final conclusion. One of the cool things that Holly and Cassie said at the event is when they were starting out this story, they had the first paragraph and the last paragraph that remained unchanged. So I’m very interested to see how this, like, long-awaited conclusion comes out. So now I have two very, very exciting anticipated releases of mine to share with you guys. The first was sent to me by Macmillan So thank you so, so much to Macmillan and Fierce Reads for sending me a copy of Arch Enemies a by Marissa Meyer Which is the sequel to Renegades. If you’ve been watching my channel this year, you probably have heard me talk about Renegades because it is one of my absolute favorites of the year. Oh my gosh, I am so obsessed with this book. The sequel Arch Enemies comes out this November and I am just–I cannot believe how excited I am. I genuinely can’t remember the last time I was so excited about the sequel to a book that I recently read that I am just– it’s taken over my life. Renegades is a story about super heroes and super villains It takes place in this world where after a time of anarchy when people were just able to do whatever they like, there is this group of people called Renegades who are all people that have superpowers and they sort of are like the cops of the world and then we also have the Anarchists who want to take down the Renegades and, you know, form society to what they believe in. We have Adrian who is the son of the two heads of the Renegades, and we have Nova who is an Anarchist that the Renegades don’t really know much about, so she’s able to infiltrate and become a Renegade herself to try and bring them down from within. I also have a couple of Renegades-themed videos that are definitely coming in the weeks leading up to the release of Arch Enemies But I just cannot wait for it and I hope if you guys haven’t picked up Renegades yet, You will in time for Arch Enemies. The next anticipated release of mine was sent to me by a HarperCollins So thank you so much to Harper for sending me a copy of The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by McKenzie Lee. This is the sequel to The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, which came out last year, and I absolutely loved it. So, I have been excited for the sequel since. So, although this is a series, both books follow different characters. The first book follows a boy named Monty and the sequel follows his sister named Felicity. This story takes place in the 1700s as Felicity is trying to avoid the marriage proposal of a boy she’s not interested in, while also trying to get into a medical school. One of Felicity’s most idolized physicians has an opening for some research assistants so she really wants to go, but she has no money for the trip. A mysterious stranger shows up and offers to pay Felicity’s way as long as the stranger can pretend to be her maid and travel with her. But this woman has some shady motives and it just takes off on another really awesome Adventure through Europe and all of these perilous adventures and just sounds so good. I’m really, really excited for this book. This is one of the first YA novels I’ve ever seen and that features an aromantic and asexual main character. So I’m very excited to see how this discussion is handled in a historical-fiction setting, but just sounds so amazing. I have the utmost faith that it’s going to be great, and I can’t wait to read it. I bought two new releases this month, the first being Escaping From Houdini by Carrie Maniscalco Which is the third book in the Stalking Jack the Ripper Series. I just found out, like, yesterday that there’s actually going to be a fourth book in this series, so this one isn’t the finale, which is very exciting. If you haven’t heard of the Stalking Jack the Ripper Series, it takes place in the 1800s following a girl named Audrey who is very interested in forensic science. Snd so the story just takes place as Audrey interacts with some of these very famed historical figures like Jack the Ripper, Prince Dracula, and now Harry Houdini. From what I know about this third installment, it follows Audrey and her companion, Thomas, as they enter onto this week-long cruise back to America that is, like, a carnival, and one woman ends up dead so Audrey and Thomas, you know, as they do, begin to investigate. Now, I have a complex relationship with the Stalking Jack the Ripper Series as I don’t really love it. And I’m somewhat perplexed as to why I keep reading these books, but they’re just not my favorite. I will say as I finished book two earlier this year, despite still being underwhelmed, I fell in love with the relationship between Audrey and Thomas, and that really is my driving force right now with finishing this series. I feel like I just have a lot of expectations that are just never fulfilled and I feel like the concept of the book is always better than the execution, but nonetheless I’m still going into this with an open mind. I’m very excited to read it, and I’m very hopeful that this will be like the turning point where I start to really love this series that I think I have a lot of potential to. And then the next new release that I bought this month is Wild Card by Mary Lou which is the Sequel to War Cross which was one of my absolute favorite books last year. War Cross is a near futuristic sci-fi novel where the entirety of society has been shaped by the introduction of virtual reality, and so there is this international phenomenon game called War Cross. Our main character’s name is Amica and she is a bounty hunter for people doing illegal dealings in the virtual world like betting on War Cross. But one day she accidentally glitches herself into the opening War Cross Games for the entire world to see. Thinking she is going to be killed for committing such a crime, she’s actually invited by the creator of War Cross, named Hadiyo Tanaka, to go all across the world to Tokyo in order to not only compete in the War Cross Games, but also investigate some shady happenings in the War Cross world for him. I just loved War Cross so much. I thought it was such a fantastic, fantastic novel and I did actually get the opportunity to read Wild Card this month. I definitely will be talking more about Wild Card in my wrap-up for this month. Unfortunately, though. I really didn’t love it. I haven’t fully formed my feelings on it because I only just recently finished it, so I’m a little conflicted. It definitely was not my favorite sequel, but we’ll see how I have to feel about it in my wrap-up for this month. And so before we move on to my dream books the final book that I bought in the month of August is 30-Second Psychology edited by Christian Jarrett. So last week I went to Barnes & Noble to do some of my coursework for grad school. I just love being able to go to Barnes Noble and just sitting down at the cafe or in one of the couches and just doing my schoolwork or reading, whatever. So I wasn’t necessarily planning on buying any books that day, but as I was walking out there was this table by the checkout area that just had all of these different 30-second subject books and I, of course, saw the psychology one and I was like “I need it.” It was also bargain price for only ten dollars so like I couldn’t resist. But it is essentially just a collection of all of these different topics under the realms of psychology. So for example, you have a lot on the classic theorists like Freud and Jung, but then there’s also some of the most famed psychological experiments like the Stanford Prison Experiment, Harlow’s Monkeys, Pavlov’s Dogs etc. And there’s also a lot of stuff in here that I haven’t learned in my studies in psychology So I think it’ll just be like a cute little introduction to some psychological concepts, experiments and whatnot, and it just sounds like a really engaging read that I think I’ll very much enjoy. So I thought it’d be cute to do a little change of scenery, get some cozy Christmas lights and sit on my comfy couch to do this section on my “dream books.” Again, this really isn’t special to anyone else but me. I one hundred percent guarantee a lot of you watching have these books. There are millions upon millions, and probably billions of copies of them in the world. It’s just what they represent to me that’s really special. So the books that I have been dreaming about since I was a kid that I bought this month are the original Bloomsbury editions of Harry Potter. I have the Philosopher’s Stone Chamber of Secrets Prisoner of Azkaban Goblet of Fire, Order of the Phoenix, Half-blood Prince, and Deathly Hallows. A lot of you have these books. These are just the books that you’ve grown up with. Like, they’re special because the Harry Potter not necessarily because there are the original Bloomsbury editions. But for me as like a 13 year old kid living in America, Harry Potter is my entire life. I’ve read the book so many times I’ve lost count. I have all the Harry Potter merch, but I just, for some reason, always dreamed about having the original UK Bloomsbury editions. It’s no secret that for a really long time I have just been so obsessed with England. Like, you go back to my first few YouTube videos in my old house, it’s just freaking Union Jack’s everywhere. So at the time I just loved Harry Potter and England so much and I felt like these books were like the ultimate combination. It was the Harry Potter books that are set in the UK and the original English editions. And so for some bizarre reason, I don’t even fully understand, I just became so attached to these editions of the series. I thought they were so beautiful. I loved how colourful they were. But I would just see all of these pictures of this gorgeous set of Harry Potter on Tumblr and I was like “Oh my gosh, I want this.” So again, this was almost ten years ago for me. I was not a big reader and definitely not a big book collector. I had no idea you could order books from other countries. I thought I was just, like, only ever going to have the U.S. versions of Harry Potter unless I went to England. And then sometime in between then when I just, like, thought I would never be able to have these gorgeous books, and when I actually went to England I found out that these books are actually out of print and the publishers aren’t putting them out anymore, so I wouldn’t find them in Waterstones or something. So even when I was in England, I just like had no hope of finding them because they were out of print and I was like “I will never be able to have these books.” So over some time I’ve been doing a little searching online and, like, again, these aren’t rare books. You could still easily find them. If you just google them online, you can buy them. But of course, I’m picky and I wanted them to be these beautiful fresh editions, which was never gonna happen. So one night, I was just scrolling on AbeBooks, which is an online used and rare book store. They have like so, so many different books on there. But I found that there were so many listings for these books and I was like, I think I can do this. I think I can finally buy them. So I spent hours going through, like, every single listing for each of these books, finding the ones that all were in, like, good or almost new condition, and the ones that had the dust jacket and had no damage. Like, I was so picky with them. But I finally picked out a group of these hardcover editions that I’ve dreamed of for so long and I bought them. So all these are used but they’re all in such great condition Also a cool fact, even though it doesn’t really matter but Order of the Phoenix, Half-Blood Prince, and Deathly Hallows are all first editions which I think is really cool. And that just like happened to be a thing that came in the mail So yeah, these are my dream books These are a set of books that I have been literally dreaming about for almost 10 years now. And I finally have them in my own possession, and that’s really, really exciting. Again, this isn’t special to anyone but me. I probably sound like such a dork, but nonetheless, these books have been really symbolic to me over the years. It’s something I’ve dreamed about for such a long time and I finally have them and that is just the most amazing feeling. So that concludes my September Book Haul. I’m literally in such a good mood right now because I have been waiting to film this video, show you my dream books, show you all of the new releases and cool editions of books that I got this month. It was just a really, really great month for book collecting for me, and so I’m super pleased. So I hope you guys enjoyed the video. In the comments below, let me know what books you bought or received this month, because I would love to know. And if you guys have any dream books. I guarantee I’m not the only one here that, like, fawns over editions of books that they don’t have yet. But that is it for this video. Thank you guys so much for watching and I will see you soon for a new video. Bye

    omg i spent like some ridiculous amount on the first two original artwork hard cover UK editions of the Harry Potter books so i feel you gal, i'm still to get the rest of the series in hard cover and the original artwork so i'm just as much as a dork as you!!

  23. Jamie Pfaff says:

    I've heard that you can only listen to around 2 books on scribd per month, but they say it's unlimited. They hold the books you want to read so that you CAN'T read them. I think that's really bad and needs to be fixed. Still they sponsor a lot of people and let them tell us you can 'listen to unlimited audiobooks' while you can't. I almost subscribed to them until I got a warning from someone to wait, luckily

  24. moniquelovestoread says:

    Emma where u get ur UK books at?

  25. N C says:

    Scribd is a scam. Its NOT unlimited. If you read the very fine print, it says it not unlimited. I've had it for almost two months now to test it and it appears after listening to 3 audio books they SEVERELY restrict what you can listen to. Very disappointing.

  26. Codie's Book Corner says:

    City of ghosts is one of my new favourite books! I may be biased though as it’s set where I live in Edinburgh:) she did my city so proud and the descriptions were on point! So happy you finally got your hands on the UK editions of Harry Potter!

  27. sydneys.books says:

    The Last Time I Lied is sooooo good I hope you love it!!

  28. Riikka Inkeri says:

    Here's the thing. I've never read Harry Potter, I tried to once in Finnish but it wasn't my thing (somehow reading in my native language feels unnatural, go figure). Now, I'm 3 books short from the full series and I've thrifted them all. I've made this into a whole thing, like I have to thrift all these books and of course I am missing the first 3….

  29. Average Joe Reads says:

    Ahh I’m so happy for you getting those HP covers. They’re the covers I grew up with and still read to this day, so it’s great to see you treasure them so dearly. Loved this video! 💙

  30. nandhini selvam says:

    hey emma…..i cannot tell you how eagerly i wait for your book hauls… are amazing !!!! Love from India..

  31. Julie Englefaris says:

    I just learned that the British flag is called "Union Jack" this week while reading Lethal White 😅

  32. FaeNoir says:

    Congrats on finding those HP editions! They're super pretty and I'd be over the moon to own them too. I have so many series that I consider "dream books" that I've been coveting, because they're such a special part of my childhood/reading experience. I'm slowly but surely completing my collection of original hardback editions of Brian Jacques' Redwall series, the Heralds of Valdemar by Mercedes Lackey, and I swear one day I will have the complete original Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew series. (Just to name a few! 😊)

  33. 邱愛儒 says:

    I don't like Jack the ripper either ! Just hope I will finish the second book and change my mind.

  34. TheBrightSideGirl says:

    I've been finding the bloomsbury editions at my library bookstores (even though I'm in the US) It's so exciting!! I have Books 4 and 5 right now!

  35. Marisa LaBlue says:

    Us smaller youtubers need to look out for one another! 🙂 I hope you can also check out my channel and possibly sub to each other? <3

  36. Orla Docherty says:

    Hi Emma! I know you've personally experienced mental illness but do you have any advice for people with friends who are dealing with pretty severe mental health issues? I love your channel and how you talk about mental health!

  37. Hannah OConnell says:

    This is so strange to me because I grew up reading these editions of Harry Potter but when I saw the US covers I was so jealous because I thought they were so much nicer!

  38. The Chronicles of a Book Lover says:

    A Thousand Beginnings and Endings sounds absolutely fascinating!

  39. with cinnamon, please says:

    aaaaw love this! I completely get you, those books are indeed special <3

  40. Drewisreading says:

    I read city of ghost by victoria schwab and loved it! I still need to read amanda foody books, Black enough sounds amazing can't wait for it to come out, I just started reading the iron trial series and I read the first book and planning on reading the rest thanks to the audiobooks on my scribd app. I have a thousand beginnings and endings on my tbr shelf. I also have renegades on my shelf. I pre-order the lady's guide to petticoats and piracy! I'm dying to read escpaing from houdini! I just bought wildcard this month even though I haven't read Warcross yet!(:

  41. Willa Pruitt says:

    bro when you kept going on about how your dream books weren't special or anything i was like yeah i feel that but i'm still interested and when you held up all seven hardcovers of the original bloomsbury harry potter books i YELLED

  42. Lauren Moody says:

    My dream book is to have a first edition of the Hobbit. I probably never will cause they cost thousands of dollars but I still dream.

  43. UnchangedTomorrow says:

    i also went and bought the original harry potter books since those are the ones i read as a child. i read the first book so much the first chapter fell out and I had the first ten pages completely memorized. one of the reasons I still read YA as an adult is no way in hell am I missing another series that might make a huge impact just because of marketing bullshit.

  44. Karrie Letts says:

    Harry Potter for the win! I've read them so much I had to buy new copies be abuse the old ones fell apart

  45. Evelyn Munoz says:

    Omg Emma you've literally got me listening to Lil Peep 24/7 thanks for the great artist suggestion!! I'm obsessed with him now!!

  46. Brittany the Bibliophile says:

    ABE BOOKS IS THE BEST!!! Also that City of Ghosts cover is my new obsession. I'm so happy for you and your OG UK Harry Potter editions!! It really showed just how long you've been wanting them and how much it means to you!! I feel like I was that way when I was collecting my Series of Unfortunate Events books!

  47. MaryBeth Stortroen says:

    Prior to finding them on eBay, I was obsessed with trying to find copies of the Waterstones special editions of Lady Midnight and Lord of Shadows, but then I found them and I was so happy. And the moment, the QoAaD one went live, I was wiping out the credit card and pre-ordering because I NEEDED it. But now, that I have them, my “dream” books would be the UK special editions of TMI where they are all different colors with the different symbols on them. Ever since I watched your first Shadowhunter shelf tour video, I’ve been fawning over them and wanting them.

  48. ThePsychoNyx says:

    Okay I love the light pastel makeup. living for it. Will defo check out scribd when I start audiobooks. I really want to try out Warcross and Wildcard as it sounds intriguing esp as a gamer. 30 Second Psychology sounds like an easy way to get into Psychology and learn a basis!

    It's cool that you got your dream books! Hurrah! Yay happiness.

  64. kvinettaf09 says:

    My dream books for me are the Outlander series in the edition that's like from 2005 or something, but at the moment, I'm half way through the series and have a few different editions between books, and it's just so wonderful to have like the most solid and beautiful editions of series that you love!! One day 🙏

  65. Ana Belen Herrera Herrera says:

    I love Harry Potter and England too, so, I can understand you!

  66. infernhal says:

    i just bought renegades because ive seen you talk about it so much!

  67. Irena_McG says:

    I love Scribd and I am subscribed for several months, but it's actually possible to listen 2 maybe 3 books a month and then you have to wait next month. I guess they limit so it pays off for them, but people should stop saying we could listen "how many books we want" for that price because it's not true.

  69. Captivate Charm says:

    Emma, if you're a dork…I'm a dork. LOVED the dream books part – because I GET IT! I've been collecting other editions of HP – It is a thing for sure!!!

  70. SimplyKailyn says:

    I want to read Cassandra Clare so bad but I don't know how her books go in order or what to read first, etc. Can someone help?

  77. Elizabeth Mitchell says:

    My dream book:
    The official Michael Jackson Opus.
    I'd read it once then keep it in a locked display case.

  78. Nat is reading. says:

    This is aesthetically pleasing:) ,I love the title of this video emma. I assume more mortal instrument books lmao.

  79. Kate O'Riordan says:

    Would people recommend using script or audible more for value for money?

  80. paperandinkandsouls says:

    I'm sure someone has
    already commented this, but in Wintergirls the main character is Lea, and her dead friend is Cassie. (Not hate, just clarification!)

  81. Michelle Lianne says:

    I didn't buy any books in September, but I did get my copy of Leah on the Offbeat signed by Becky Albertalli! ❤️

  82. Chloe Charlton says:

    It's funny because I'm English and I got rid of those editions of the books because they were all beaten and torn up from how much I read them and I wanted the new hardcover box set instead!

  83. firelight09 says:

    So glad to find another person who uses Scribd! 🙂

  84. becca1573 says:

    Girl, don’t even be self-conscious lol! We all have our own set of dream books that aren’t really a big deal to most people and that are really common. Other people don’t get to determine the worth of the things that make you happy! Have a great weekend !

  85. NatalieSigns says:

    I love wintergirls I’ve read it three times. I also NEED city of ghosts

  86. Hayley Louise says:

    I've got the HP Bloomsbury original books, most of which I've had since I was a kid (some I've had to replace due to how damaged they got or losing them when I've moved) and part of me wants to put them in a box and never touch them again because I'm scared of them being damaged and super hard / expensive to get a hold of. I've got quite a few first editions and my best friend has the super duper rare PS book with the other wizard on the back❤

  87. Candy Kittens says:

    i'm slowly trying to get new copies of all the UK original editions of the Harry Potter books in hardback, seeing as all of mine (apart from the Half Blood Prince) are either paperback, or not in the best condition as i've had them for years. luckily there's so many secondhand stores near me so i can keep an eye out for any there.

    my dream books though, are really just as many different editions of J.R.R. Tolkien's books as i can find (with certain editions that i want more than others). then another is really just to finally own each of the Warriors books by Erin Hunter in hardback until they become even harder to find, luckily i'm almost there though, only like 14 more to go (which seems like a lot, but considering how big the series is….)!

  88. It's My Birth Write says:

    I always find myself loving UK covers more than US ones and my wallet cannot handle it lmao
    The City of Ghosts UK cover is SO HALLOWEEN-Y I love it.
    And I'm so happy you got the HP covers you wanted!! I want them, too! I have the original US covers, and I love them, but the color blocked spines of the UK covers are so gorgeous!

  89. Ace Coyle says:

    Next time you are in London: Leister Square stop on the tube-Charing Cross-Henry Pordes Books=Harry Potter Nerd Goodness
    Goodwin’s Court and Cecil Court are the inspiration for Diagon Alley
    My Love♥️

  92. Steve Schiely says:

  93. Simply Bookdreams says:

    I have the originals of Harry Potter. Love it!!!!

  94. Michelle Wilson says:

    Yay. I think you are the first booktube person outside of the UK who actually said Edinburgh the way I say it lol. I'm from Glasgow which isn't too far from Edinburgh.

  95. Tea Time T Reads says:

    I know exactly how you feel about Harry Potter! Last year, my mum surprised me with the original Bloomsbury UK first editions too and I was so touched I literally almost cried.

  96. Lakedamia Bocconcino says:

    "Wintergirls" triggered me a bit when I read it. I don't have an eating disorder. I am clinically depressed and anxious, amd I am considered fat and been told constantly, so when i read it, the ehole thing added up and I started picking up the protagonist's bad habits and it was a real struggle to finish it… Maybe someone can enjoy it, but it wasn't my case. I did like her other book Speak though

  97. Amy Woods says:

    Its real for us. ☺️🧙🏻‍♀️

  98. Lina Khatib says:

  99. TASMINT says:
