|Another new feature here at TAW, The Bookish Confessionary.
Confessing all my bookish sins! It will be posted fortnightly, on a
Wednesday, and I will use something I never have before- GIFs!|
Images used are not mine.
I do. And bookshelf tendencies.
I HATE hardbacks, as you have heard before. THEY STICK OUT.
But I hate EVEN MORE, when they CHANGE THE COVERS OF A SERIES HALFWAY THROUGH, or randomly make the last one bigger.
Oh yes, for more money. *COUGH* ALLEGIANT *COUGH* REACHED *COUGH*
AND THEN. When I get books off Amazon, and THEY COME AND THEY AREN'T THE RIGHT MATCHY COVERS even though the picture on Amazon SAID IT WOULD BE.
And I'm just like w h y.
Why do they do this.
And then sometimes, they release GORGEOUS new covers when I have the old covers, again (even though the first were quite nice), Allegiant.
On my bookcase, hardbacks have to be at the end of the shelf, because I have to have a flat shelf. Which is why series with a RANDOM HARDBACK go at the end of one of my shelves.
Sometimes, it's not publisher's fault. I bought Cherry Crush and Marshmallow Skye in book fayres at school, so they were paperback exclusives before the paperback came out. THEN I left and had to buy hardbacks of Summer's Dream and Coco Caramel. End of the shelf they have gone.
AND THEN SOMETIMES I GET A WHOLE SERIES AND IT ALL MATCHES AND IS THE SAME SIZE AND ALL PAPERBACK AND YAY
