    I haven’t actually ever seen a flipback edition, but those Austen’s are so incredibly lovely. I’ve collected all the Penguin clothbound ones, but I can’t help myself when it comes to collectors editions. I’m up to 9 copies of Alice in Wonderland now.

    Were those the original covers for the Lauren Kate series, or have they just changed those in the US to boost sales I wonder. The AU covers are so much nicer in comparison. Thanks for sharing Shaheen and have a fabulous week of reading <3

      Thanks for stopping by!! The Austens are indeed the CUTEST 🙂 I love them! I also collect my favourite books for fun, I have 4 sets of the LOTR books, and I think 4 or 5 copies of Pride and Prejudice now … also 4 copies of Wuthering Heights because that is my fav!

      I’m fairly sure that the US Hardback cover matched our one, I remember the cover reveals with the girl and the water-dress, but they changed the cover for the PB of Teardrop, and the HB of Waterfall matches the PB of the first book.

      I hope you have an awesome week of reading as well!! 🙂
