A Monster Calls - Special Collector's Edition
A Monster Calls: Special Collectors' Edition (Movie Tie-in): Inspired by an idea from Siobhan Dowd - Patrick Ness,Jim Kay

This was amazing! I loved monster and I loved Conor for not showing his fear of monster. Conor has enough fear in his life without monster adding to it. With his mother sick and his father in America, Conor believes that everything will be okay. His mother had assured Conor that everything will be fine but the activity that is occurring in their household, shows otherwise.

 

I read each word carefully, scrutinizing each illustration as I didn’t want to miss a word as Conor dealt with the monster that had called out to him. Why now, why did this monster come calling to Conor as he had enough issues plaguing his mind? And what was the purpose of all this, why was this tall enormous beast preying on a small defenseless boy? I felt that every single detail was important in this novel, as it all meant something in the long run. The time, the stories, the individuals in his lives and each conversation, all important. What a gem of a story. I would love to hear this on audio.

 

I received this Special Collector’s Edition of A Monster Calls from Candlewick Press and this baby is fantastic. I first have to tell you that this book is heavy, Amazon says it weighs 2.7 lbs. There are three sections to this book. The first section is the book itself, A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness, the second section is The Story of the Book and the third section is The Making of the Film. There are 342 pages in this book, all on glossy, thick paper. The highlights: the book A Monster Calls was the first major highlight for me as I loved it! I have nothing to compare it too but I loved everything about it including the illustrations that accompanied the text. Sometimes the illustrations were on a two-page spread or sometimes they were intermingled with the text on the page. I felt there were a sufficient amount of the them and they were an important part of the novel. I liked the size font in this novel too. In The Story of the Book, this section has colored illustrations and it was very interesting to read. It is exactly what it says it is, about the making of this novel. The author, publisher, and illustrator talk about the book and there is a also an interview about the making of it. I enjoyed looking at the illustrations in this section as there were illustrations that were not included in the novel. The last section, I haven’t seen the movie yet so I skimmed over this section as I am afraid it might ruin the movie for me. This section has loads of movie clips, some drawings, and interviews. There is a section called Raising the Monster and this was very cool and interesting. I highly recommend this book, this is more than just a terrific novel of A Monster Calls, it is world inside this tale. I can’t wait to see the movie now.

Bookhaul #18

I got some new books this month! One of them I got free from the author in return for an honest review, two of them are ones I really, really want to read and the other one is one I've already read, but the collector's edition came out this month so I got that one to complete my collection of this series.

New World Ashes by Jennifer Wilson is the second book in the New World trilogy and this one came out in September. I've already read the first book of this series this month and I'm going to read New World Ashes this weekend. I have also awesome news: Jennifer would like to give away her two books to one of my readers! So stay tuned because I think the giveaway will be up in the upcoming week!

 

Far From The Madding Crows by Thomas Hardy is a classic that has been really hyped up lately and the story sounds so damn interesting that I just picked it up. I cannot wait to read it!

 

Same thing goes for To Kill A Mockingbird. It's a shame I still haven't read it so I picked it up. Online there are only 50th anniversary editions of this book (and no you can't get that off, so annoying!) so when I saw this in the bookstore that's nearby the new school I go to (yay!) I just bought it because I. Have. To. Read. It. Lol.

 

The last book I bought is the Allegiant collector's edition which came out on October 6th. Yes that date was something! There were so many books coming out and big booknews that day but the one that I really wanted was this one. I've already read it the day it was released (so back then I read it on my e-reader), but I'm excited to re-read it at some point.

 

I'm quite happy with this haul. Not too many books and that's how I like it! The only book I will be getting for the rest of the month is an other edition of Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins, because the edition I had didn't match the other two in that series so I sold that one to a friend.

 

I also really like it how this pictured turned out. It's really autumnal haha!

 

What is the latest book you've bought?

review SPOILER ALERT! 2015-01-28 04:56
Sons of Anarchy: The Official Collector's Edition by Tara Bennett
Sons of Anarchy: The Official Collector's Edition - Tara Bennett

 WARNING: SERIES SPOILERS

Welcome to the clubhouse..."Go inside the clubhouse and behind the scenes of the #1 smash hit FX television show Sons of Anarchy with this official book, the only one officially sanctioned by the show's creator and FX, which offers the definitive insider's guide to all seven seasons, including the series' memorable final episode.

Sons of Anarchy: The Official Collector's Edition is an awesome tribute to the Teller-Morrow family. Inside you'll find:

An introduction by and interviews with Kurt Sutter, series creator on how the show came to be. 
Revealing interviews with the cast, including Charlie Hunnam (Jax), Katey Sagal (Gemma), Maggie Siff (Tara), Ryan Hurst (Opie), Theo Rossi (Juice), Kurt Sutter (Otto), and more "Creating the Chaos:" an all-access tour of the sets, the bikes, the tattoos, and much more. The actors' most memorable scenes and moments, in their own words. 
An oral history of the pivotal Season 6 finale "A Mother's Work". A look back at Season 7, the series' end and the Teller family legacy. Complete with a deluxe package, and hundreds of striking full-color photographs throughout, Sons of Anarchy: The Official Collector's Edition is the must-have book for any Sons of Anarchy fan."

 

       

 

Anyone who is a die-hard fan of Sons of Anarchy knows how committed Kurt Sutter, show creator and writer, was to the show and to its fans. When a few distributors mistakenly shipped pre-orders of the collector's edition book one week before the series finale was to air, Mr. Sutter took to Twitter to issue a personal apology to fans in true Kurt Sutter style: 

 

FAN APOLOGY


It has been brought to my attention that our SOA Collector's Edition Book has been sent out a week early by some distributors and book outlets. This book contains details about the final episode of the series. This, my friends is a storyteller's worst nightmare. I wanted this book to be a compliment to the show. It contains personal messages and photos from the cast, in-depth behind the scenes information and detailed breakdown of episodes. It's a smart, well-conceived book that I was very excited for the fans to have. AFTER the motherfucking finale. There are a thousand fucking people I can blame. And I assure you, by the time I am done, my fucking basket will be filled with heads of incompetent cunts. But as far as the fans go, the burden is on me. I fucked up. It was my idea for the book, so ultimately, I am to blame. So if you received a book, I apologize. I ask that you not share your wrath or pain or opinion in social media so as to not spoil the experience of others. There is no excuse for utter ineptitude. It pains me that this will be the parting memory of some fans. I hope you all tune in for the finale. It plays much better than it reads.

Sincerely

ks


 

This same passion and commitment is truly apparent within the pages of the SOA Collector's Edition. According to Sutter, he wanted to give fans "something all encompassing. A potluck feast you could sink your voracious teeth into." And both he and Tara Bennett deliver. This book is absolutely gorgeous. It's filled with stunning photography:

 

 

 

                                               ❖

 

 

                                               

There is information ranging from the inception and evolution of the story, including research into MC history and culture (yes, Jax's white kicks are actually part of modern biker culture!), to the thought processes behind set designs and music selection. But for me, the biggest treat was the insight provided by Kurt Sutter, Charlie Hunnam (Jax), Maggie Siff (Tara), and the rest of the cast into the minds of the characters--especially as related to Jax and Jax's journey. While I loved the behind the scenes "making of" information, what I loved most was reading about the story dynamics and the perspective of the characters as they faced their most poignant, life-changing moments. It was such a wonderful reminder of the reason I fell in love with this show to begin with: the well-written, complex characters. 

 

This book is a true love letter to both show and fans. The blurb does not lie: it's a must-have for Sons of Anarchy fans.

 

Final Rating: 5 Stars

Bookhaul #5

So, a bookhaul! I bought six books recently that I wanted to show you. I'm still waiting for two books but that's going to take an other week or two so yea. 

1. The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides

I wanted this version so badly but I couldn't find it anywere or it was really expensive. I found this book in this version on the German amazon, so I'm lucky! It was really cheap as well.

 

2. Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie

When I was a child I never read it, but I've seen the disney movie of it. This edition is so georgeous so I decided to buy it. You've already seen a review of this book. 

3. Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

I loved Jane Eyre so much, so I decided to buy an other book by the Brontë sisters. This one sounds really interesting and I have/want to read it for school (we have to read 4 classics but we can decide which classics).

 

4. Strings by Kat Green

I got this book for free from the author in return for an honest review. I'm going to read it soon! 

 

5. Divergent collectors edition by Veronica Roth

This edition is so beautiful with so many cool extras! I read this trilogy on my ereader, so I didn't own it. This is my favorite book in the trilogy and probably the only one I'm going to reread so when I saw there was coming a collectors edition I decided to buy it and I already reread it (ofcourse).

 

6. The Archived by Victoria Schwab

I wanted to own a fantasy book and one that I've not read yet. This books sounds so interesting and it's really short, so I decided to give this one a try. I don't want to read it immediately, but there is a change I'm going to read it before the end of the year.

 

So these are all the books I recently bought. I'm still waiting for two other books, but I'm not going to post it as a bookhaul, so I will mention it in the reviews. I'm not going to buy any more books until my birthday, which is on 16 December. If you'd like to send me a book (so you don't have to!) please email me to itsabooksworld.booklikes@gmail.com and I'll give you my wishlist.
