January Book Photo Challenge - Part III

Hi everyone,
I am bringing you another part of January Book Photo Challenge. The next one I am going to post on the last day of January which will be on Tuesday, so this is the last Saturday's post. I think I am going to miss it so I am considering taking part in February Book Photo Challenge, too. Let me know if you'd like me to...

15. Love Letter
I think that the most beautiful love letter I've ever read in the literature is the one which Captain Wentworth writes to Anne Elliot during the last scenes of Persuasion by Jane Austen. One cannot read it without tears in their eyes...

16. Out of Print
These gorgeous editions of works by Brontë sisters are out of print, unfortunatelly. There are six books published in this collection of Mr. Boddington's Penguin Classics, but I only managed to find these two when in London. And I treasure them the most, for they are some of my favourite books of all time, plus they look so pretty with these covers...

17. 400+ Pages
I've recently added this beautiful copy of The Complete Illustrated Works of Hans Christian Andersen to my collection. And I am looking forward to read bits and pieces of it every night, if possible. It has got 948 pages...

18. Retelling
If you're not visiting my blog for the first time, you probably know that I am a huge fan of fanfiction. I just like revisiting my favourite classic stories in new reimaginings. I think that the best retelling I've read so far is Persuade Me by Juliet Archer. It is a retelling of Persuasion by Jane Austen, as you may guess from its title, and it's really amazing. You can read it even without knowing the original, but if you're a fan of Jane Austen, it will have something more into it for you. I am also planning to read The Importance of Being Emma soon...

19. Set in NYC
I've heard about The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath so many times, and I knew that I would read it eventually, but I wasn't intrigued to do it immediately. But then I came upon it during an idle hour in the bookshop where I had been working in London, and I read the back cover which made me buy it. Basicly, it is about this girl who moves to New York and gets a depression there. I feel like I will understand to this novel after moving to London and going through the biggest depression I've experienced in my whole life. But I still haven't read it, for I needed some time to get out of a tangle of the toxic thoughts in my head, first. But I think that now is the perfect time to finally read it...

20. Snowy Cover
I am reading Wild Roses by Deb Caletti currently and it has the loveliest snowy cover ever. I am just at the beginning but I like it so far, even though I don't love it as much as Stay, which I read in January last year, but I am hoping that I will eventually...

21. Autobiography
I bought Talking As Fast As I Can by Lauren Graham in the post Christmas sales, and I still haven't gotten into it. I've read a couple of chapters at the beginning of the month, though, and I really enjoyed Lauren Graham voice. So I would like to get to it soon...
