  1. The Night Circus does sound pretty good, hope you end up liking it!
    I love those leather bound classics! So pretty. TKaM has always been one of my favorite covers out of all of them…along with the Jurassic Park one. Have you seen it? I’m a fan.

  2. Your new copy of To Kill a Mockingbird is gorgeous! Also, when you held up the copy of Glamorous Disasters, I was thinking exactly what you said haha… I don’t know what this book is about, but the guy on the front is really cute!
