Rare Titles for 2015



With 2015 now fully underway, I’ve decided to put together a list of rare titles to get through this year. These include related finds to books/films/ songs I’ve read/ watched/ listened to already, suggestions made by family and friends, and recommendations I’ve stumbled upon on other blogs. Naturally this list will build as the year goes on, but if there are any crucial underground/ cult gems I’ve missed out on, be sure to let me know!
