6. And can we talk about the ‘Twilight’ series… in WHITE?! Doesn’t it look like something that will give you so much joy? White. Like snow. And dyed page edges? Perfection.

11. Is that a ‘Paper Towns’ pop-up edition? Why yes, yes it is.


12. This spectacular version of ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ (another gold star for The Folio Society!):
