Why I’m waiting for A Monster Calls Special Collector’s edition:

I probably don’t even need to say this because OBVIOUSLY I will get this book. This is THE most anticipated book of the year for me, even though it’s a book I’ve already read multiple times but ONE. HUNDRED. PAGES. OF. SPECIAL. CONTENT. *flails*

The original hardcover was already pretty damn amazing but this special edition beats it all. A Monster Calls means quite a lot to me and both this new edition and the upcoming movie are more than I can handle right now.
