Nostalgia Nest

Perhaps driven by the recent frenzy among grown men for Star Wars memories, I’ve decided I want to surround myself with with nostalgia amulets. By which I mean all my favorite girl books. Now the problem is that I Marie Kondo’d my life at 25, so I don’t own these any more.

I’m on a mission to restock my collection, and they all have to be the right edition (no ugly new covers). Here is my wish list.

  1. All my Alanna books. I’ve already ordered my first editions on Ebay. But now that I have tasted the sweet nectar of collecting, I want other weird editions too. Like this sexy one: latest
  2. ALL OF THE L.M. MONTGOMERY. Now this is tricky, because they are now public domain and thus publishers put out gorgeous new gift editions. So I haven’t decided whether I want the 80s ones or the pretty ones. Same issue with Luisa May Alcott, Laura Ingalls Wilder, and Maud Hart Lovelace.
  3. The Mists of Avalon. Now the trick here is to find one of the paperbacks that does not say “Now a TNT miniseries.”
  4. I want all the Nancy Drews. My mom has already gotten into this particular fetish so I’m hoping we can do this as a family project.
  5. Juniper. This is such a beautiful book cover that I would also like a framed print. Or this amazing tattoo.

    6. All of the Madeline L’Engle books with the original weird 80s covers.images
