Beautiful Books -Books with different features

Hiya guys “waves with 2 hands” So I have read a fair few books lately with really cool features so I thought, why not share them with you 🙂

By cool or different features I mean photos, playlists, emails etc.. So lets get started and see how many I can think of:


11861815.jpgWinger By Andrew Smith img_00002_2_crop

Winger has fun little comics included and I really liked reading them 🙂

To be honest I didn’t love this book as much as everyone else seems to the drawings were my favorite part and the reason why I bought a physical copy 😀




Morgan Matson’s books!

Morgan Matson’s books always include something awesome in them, mainly playlists from what I’ve read:



Amy & Rogers Epic Detour


This book is set out like a scrap book and I loved it! I bought the ebook but I’m buying the Physical copy as well because its so pretty!




Camera 095










18189606Since You’ve Been Gone again this book has playlists included that are awesome and contain a heap of Easter Eggs for The Unexpected Everything










17838528The Unexpected Everything Has Emojis and texts. I loved seeing the group texts between characters they were absolutely hilarious.



15707124An Abundance of Katherines

This lovely book contains footnotes! John worked with a mathimaticion on this book as the MC is a ‘genius’ boy and it’s so good! I especially love this cover. The whole story is just quirky and fun.








Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

Ok guys don’t kill me but I STILL haven’t read this *takes cover from angry fans* I’M SORRY! No seriously it’s on it’s way! I bought the Hard Cover and I have pre ordered Gemina. I will finally get to this book. Look at the pages though! I’m dying looking at images I can’t wait to have this bad boy in my possession

Also fellow Melbournians, Dymocks on Colins Street is having Jay Kristoff at there store on July 29th for the NeverNight book launch, this book sounds amazing and I will be attending hopefully I can get this signed as well! If you’d like to check it out you can book a ticket here

This book is filled with creepy REAL photos that the story is actually about and the pages have fantastic details, the hardcover underneath are all bright and the end pages are to die for!img_4456

I have just finished this one so I will being reviewing it soon!

Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion7619057

This edition of warm bodies has pictures of human organs at the beginning of each chapter all labeled and I thought this was a really cool little feature for a Zombie book











12283261.jpgBetween the lines By Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer

is one I haven’t read yet but I have seen it at the book store multiple times.

It has Purple text which is really different and it also has wonderful images included 🙂








I have a lot of other books that are just beautiful either by having a colourful hardcover or beautiful end pages but that’s a different post. 😀



Do you own any books that have special features?

Pretty inserts?

Special editions with fan artwork?

I’d love to know any other books that have special features so I can check them out and add them to my collection.

Hope everyones having a great day and is reading amazing books XD

  1. Wonderful list 🙂 You should check out the Sky Is Everywhere! There are little poems scattered within the book found in numerous places – its hard to explain but its so lovely! Also, a particular edition of A Monster Calls has GORGEOUS illustrations!

        1. I know I’ve heard that! I don’t know if I’m just noticing it more but I swear there are ALOT of book to movie adaptations coming out this year and next! It’s good but means I have more books to add to my TBR😆

  2. Illuminae 😍😍😍 I love all the photos in Miss Peregrine’s SO much. I really want to buy physical copies of those because I only have the ebook versions. I love the idea of the playlists in Since You’ve Been Gone! That’s so rad. Some other mixed media books I’ve loved are Asylum by Madeleine Roux and Night Film by Marisha Pessl. Asylum has photos similar to Miss Peregrine’s but they’re of old, abandoned asylums. Night Film has really cool police reports, articles and web pages scattered through out it. It really helped bring the story to life.

    1. I love that these books add a little bit something I only have Amy and Rogers epic detour on ebook but I plan on buying the physical copy because it’s so beautiful! Night Film sound awesome by itself so I’m really happy to hear it has extra fun bits in it ☺️ it’s worth getting the hardcover box set for miss peregrine I think, it comes with photos and the pages are really silky 😁


  3. These are all such great examples of books with little extras in them! I love footnotes, so I was so happy to see that John Green included them in An Abundance of Katherines. I adored the scrapbook-esque feel of Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, and I had a blast reading Illuminae because it’s basically one big extra feature 🙂 Awesome post!

    1. The footnotes on An Abundance of Katherines were my favorite there so witty and funny 😀 I can’t wait to get my hands on Illuminae! I got an email today telling me it went out of stock so I have to wait even longer for my copy to arrive 😦

      Thank you xx
