4 Brilliant Dedication Pages

4 Brilliant Dedication Pages

I always read the dedication page. I just love seeing how creative authors can be when putting this together!

Where it is the season of being thankful, I have decided to put together this little post of photos of four really awesome pages that I have seen recently.

Enjoy!

4 Brilliant Dedication Pages

When I cracked open this book, I was really hoping that the dedication would be something along these words. Adam Rex didn't let me down! 


A bit creepy, but so creative!


Knowing that this book was centered around a creature that was just itching to push a button, this dedication made me laugh right out loud. 


When I first read this dedication, I immediately thought it was rather eerie. What happened to the girl in the woods? Why doesn't she play in them anymore? But then later, I wondered if this was more about a little girl that had simply grown up. I just can't decide now; it really could go either way, especially after reading the novel.


Thanks for reading!
Has a dedication page ever jumped out at you?

  1. This is a cool idea for a blog post! I love the “played in the woods” one. That was me as a kid. VE Schwab writes really good dedications. Some of them are weird and magical.

  3. The dedication page in the book I just finished says, "For all the lost girls - may you find your way home." So perfect for the book!

  5. This is a great post idea! I can't think of one off the top of my head, but that last one sure makes you look twice. Without knowing the novel, I would have assumed it's a story inspired by a childhood friend or sibling who is now an adult.... Or maybe the author herself?

  8. I never read dedications pages for mainstream books. I look at the Indie books to see if bloggers I know are mentioned as that is fun.

  15. There are some great dedications out there. I love the dedication in the seventh Harry Potter book: "...and to you, if you have stuck with Harry until the very end." Makes me teary-eyed every time.
