Special and Limited Edition Covers

I know we're not suppose to judge a book by its cover but some of the special and limited edition covers are so gorgeous! How am I not suppose to judge? The Book Depository is my go to stop for all these fancy covered books. I am the type of person who will buy more than one copy of a book for the cover. I love The Book Depository because they have a wide range of books to peruse through and shipping is free. Who doesn't like free shipping?

Also, since some of these editions are limited and/or signed, these amazing books would make great gifts for the holidays.

1. This limited UK edition of The Maze Runner by James Dashner is signed. The book is a highlighter yellow and has a nice black slipcase. There are only 1,000 copies total so make sure you act fast and order one ASAP.

2. The UK version of My True Love Gave to Me is edited by Stephanie Perkins and includes short stories by Stephanie, Holly Black, Ally Carter, Matt de la Peña, Gayle Forman, Jenny Han, David Levithan, Kelly Link, Myra McEntire, Rainbow Rowell, Laini Taylor and Kiersten White.

The UK collector's edition has a nice dusty blue dust jacket with gold foil embossed text. The page edges are hot pink and the book overall is just cute and festive. This is definitely a book to pick up for a holiday gift. If you are in the NYC area on December 4th, definitely check out two events where 10 out of the 12 authors will be present. Rainbow's website has more information.

4. This stunning copy of Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is definitely a keeper. It's a UK special collector's edition. The dust jacket is a pink and the naked book is a lovely mint green with foil pink embossed text and image of Simon and Baz. The other side of the dust jacket has an emergency dance party poster image with Cath and Levi dancing.
