Friday Quirk #1: Size Matters

[Going to be writing about quirks that I have or have heard other people have regarding their books and etc. Just a fun post for every Friday!]

I don’t know about you all, but if I start a series in paperback or hardback or mass market paperback, the rest of the series HAS to be just like it.

I just feel like it looks a lot better on the shelf if all the books of the series looks the same and all are the same size, height wise of course. Especially if the series is longer and the books are “synchronized” they look SO much nicer–such is the case with the Harry Potter series or Mortal Instruments series (both of which I still need to buy some books in hardcover).

ENVY

Currently wanting Cassandra Clare‘s Mortal Instruments series in hardcover (minus City of Glass). They are super expensive and if I were to buy them individually at $20 something each, well, my monthly budget would be shot in a day! [Starving Student] They are such pretty books and it seems like I’m the last one in the entire world to buy them [and start the series]. With the new book out, I want to start it soon! But then I’d have to wait for the last book to come out, and I just dislike waiting. Oh the difficult choices we must make…
