Guys guys GUYS I’m finally reading the Fantastic Beasts Screenplay!!! ❤️❤️❤️ I’m already halfway through and I think I would’ve finished it already if it weren’t for the distraction that is life. But anyway, it is so much fun! Really could we expect any less from J.K. Rowling the Queen? 😊❤️📚

2015 Classics Challenge by @prettybooks | October | Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster

I haven’t posted any photos of the classics I read in August and September (The Little Prince by Antoine Saint de-Exupery and A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf) so I’ll redeem that by posting the classic I read this month (Its more of a modern children’s classic)

I love the clothbound editions of the Classics from Penguin. Aren’t they gorgeous? Slowly but surely, I’m collecting my own little library of these beautiful books, and have compiled a complete list of the 50 (plus one) titles to tick off as I acquire them. 

Below the jump is my complete list, including publishing date. If you’d prefer to have a list of your own, you can download and print the list as an A4 sized PDF, or as printables for your personal sized Filofax (as I’m currently using).

In case you were wondering, the “plus one” I mentioned earlier is The Pearl, which was originally commissioned by the V&A Museum. All of the other 50 titles were commissioned by Penguin, and the whole set was designed by the talented Coralie Bickford-Smith.

The list also includes titles which have not yet been published, and is correct as of the date this post was published (August 2014).
