Full of never before published material and haunting pictures, this stunning edition gives a fascinating and unique insight into the making of both the book and film.
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.
I have the paperback of this book and I loved it so much! I had no idea that there were plans for a movie or even a special edition release. I’m so excited. Thanks for cluing me in!
You’re welcome! It’s actually coming out this fall already.

OMG I had no idea there was going to be a collector’s edition! I’m torn because on the one hand I want it so badly, but on the other I feel I’m not ready for all the emotions it will brew up. Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous choice! <3
I love being in pain because of books, so I can’t wait to have my copy haha
