Today marks the official release day of Outlander season 2! I am so excited that the show is finally back on. Starz subscribers got to see it two days early so I ended up watching the first episode yesterday via the Starz add-on subscription to Amazon Prime. The episode was absolutely amazing! It starts out with a brief recap of the season finale of season 1. The opening credits were gorgeous as always. I just love the theme song.
There is no doubt that I am a HUGE fan of the Outlander book series. I read the first book in December 2014 and have been collecting as many different editions as possible since then. When the show started I didn’t have cable so I had to wait until season 1 part 1 was released on blu-ray to watch it. I watched it over and over again. I just can’t get enough!
Season 2 is based on Dragonfly in Amber, book 2 of the series. While it hasn’t been my favorite of the series, there is a lot of awesome historical events involved. I don’t want to give away any spoilers for those of you that haven’t watched or read the books.
Here is my beautiful collection of Dragonfly in Amber editions so far.
I used to have the entire series in the US mass market editions but I decided to give those to my bestie who also loves Outlander but didn’t have her own set of the books. I am in love with my entire Outlander collection. Someday I hope to have a better way of displaying it but for now it works just fine! I have most of the older editions and the new tie-in editions on the top shelf along with things that go along with the show. On the second shelf I have the US trade paperbacks and the start of the US hardcovers as well as the Outlandish Companions, the Outlander coloring book, signed copies of Easton Press editions of Outlander and Written In My Own Heart’s Blood (book 8) and the Lord John Grey series which is a side story in the Outlander universe.
My most recent acquisitions for the shelf are the awesome items that were in The Outlander Box from The Bookish Box! It was one of their one time box deals dedicated solely to Outlander. They have reopened sales now for what I assume is a limited time offer so if you missed out on the first round, you better get it now!
