My Autograph Copy Books

Disclaimer: I am not trying to brag in any type of way. I just thought I would share
what books I have signed copies I own. If I sound like I am trying to brag in any 
sort of way, I am not trying to.

I was rearranging my bookshelf the other day and I decided to put all the books that are signed in a different area. For some reason, I love to look at the signature of different people, especially authors because they are so beautiful! I thought that I would tell you what books I have signed and how I got my hands onto it.

Title: Tales of the Peculiar

Author: Ransom Riggs

Publisher: Dutton Books for Young Readers

Released: September 3, 2016

Pages: 192 (Hardback)

Before Miss Peregrine gave them a home, the story of peculiars was written in the Tales.
Wealthy cannibals who dine on the discarded limbs of peculiars. A fork-tongued princess. The origins of the first ymbryne. These are but a few of the truly brilliant stories in Tales of the Peculiar—known to hide information about the peculiar world—first introduced by Ransom Riggs in his Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series.
Riggs now invites you to share his secrets of peculiar history, with a collection of original stories, as collected and annotated by Millard Nullings, ward of Miss Peregrine and scholar of all things peculiar.

I went to Books-A-Million on Labor Day because I kept seeing people with Empire of Storms by: Sarah J. Maas.  I wanted to go and see if they had it out early, obviously they didn’t have any copies of it out, but I  happened to see this book. I wasn’t even focused on the signed copy sticker on the book. Part of the display was signed and the other wasn’t. Even though the book was $24.99, I am so happy I got this book and I can’t wait to get my face in the pages of this book!

Title: Four: A Divergent Collection

Author: Veronica Roth

Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers

Released: July 8, 2014

Pages: 208 (Hardback)

Two years before Beatrice Prior made her choice, the sixteen-year-old son of Abnegation’s faction leader did the same. Tobias’s transfer to Dauntless is a chance to begin again. Here, he will not be called the name his parents gave him. Here, he will not let fear turn him into a cowering child.
Newly christened “Four,” he discovers during initiation that he will succeed in Dauntless. Initiation is only the beginning, though; Four must claim his place in the Dauntless hierarchy. His decisions will affect future initiates as well as uncover secrets that could threaten his own future—and the future of the entire faction system.
Two years later, Four is poised to take action, but the course is still unclear. The first new initiate who jumps into the net might change all that. With her, the way to righting their world might become clear. With her, it might become possible to be Tobias once again.
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth comes a companion volume to the worldwide bestselling DIVERGENT series, told from the per-spective of the immensely popular character Tobias. The four pieces included here—THE TRANSFER, THE INITIATE, THE SON, and THE TRAITOR—plus three additional exclusive scenes, give readers an electrifying glimpse into the history and heart of Tobias, and set the stage for the epic saga of the DIVERGENT trilogy.

This was my first ever signed copy book I ever got, and I didn’t know it was going to be signed. My mom bought me the Divergent series for Christmas 2013 since the movie was coming out. After I read the series, she told me that she would buy me this book because it went along with the series. Wal-Mart had the book really cheap online to preorder, and we were doing a Wal-Mart order, she put it in the cart. When the book came and I saw that the book was signed, I almost died. I never thought that I would get a signed copy book. For a while, I thought it was fake because you never know, but it is real because I can see the marker bleed through the back page.

Title: The Theory of Everything

Author: Kari Luna

Publisher: Philomel Books

Released: January 1, 2013

One part Libba Bray’s GOING BOVINE, two parts String Theory, and three parts love story equals a whimsical novel that will change the way you think about the world.
Sophie Sophia is obsessed with music from the late eighties. She also has an eccentric physicist father who sometimes vanishes for days and sees things other people don’t see. But when he disappears for good and Sophie’s mom moves them from Brooklyn, New York, to Havencrest, Illinois, for a fresh start, things take a turn for the weird. Sophie starts seeing things, like marching band pandas, just like her dad.
Guided by Walt, her shaman panda, and her new (human) friend named Finny, Sophie is determined to find her father and figure out her visions, once and for all. So she travels back to where it began—New York City and NYU’s physics department. As she discovers more about her dad’s research on M-theory and her father himself, Sophie opens her eyes to the world’s infinite possibilities—and her heart to love.
Perfect for fans of Going Bovine, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and The Probability of Miracles.

I actually talked about this book in my Books That Have Been Sitting On My Shelf Forever. I got this book at a discount store in the weirdest place. I picked up this book because of how beautiful the spine was. Since the book was $3.00, I had to check out the quality of the book. The book looked fine, and I never found the signature until we were checking out. I still haven’t read it but I really want to.

Title: Lady Midnight

Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books

Released: March 8, 2016

Pages: 698 (Hardback)

In a kingdom by the sea…
In a secret world where half-angel warriors are sworn to fight demons, parabatai is a sacred word.
A parabatai is your partner in battle. A parabatai is your best friend. Parabatai can be everything to each other—but they can never fall in love.
Emma Carstairs is a warrior, a Shadowhunter, and the best in her generation. She lives for battle. Shoulder to shoulder with her parabatai, Julian Blackthorn, she patrols the streets of Los Angeles, where vampires party on the Sunset Strip, and faeries—the most powerful of supernatural creatures—teeter on the edge of open war with Shadowhunters. When the bodies of humans and faeries turn up murdered in the same way Emma’s parents were when she was a child, an uneasy alliance is formed. This is Emma’s chance for revenge—and Julian’s chance to get back his brother Mark, who is being held prisoner by the faerie Courts. All Emma, Mark, and Julian have to do is solve the murders within two weeks…and before the murderer targets them.
Their search takes Emma from sea caves full of sorcery to a dark lottery where death is dispensed. And each clue she unravels uncovers more secrets. What has Julian been hiding from her all these years? Why does Shadowhunter Law forbid parabatai to fall in love? Who really killed her parents—and can she bear to know the truth?
The darkly magical world of Shadowhunters has captured the imaginations of millions of readers across the globe. Join the adventure in Lady Midnight, the long-awaited first volume of a new trilogy from Cassandra Clare.

I don’t know if you would consider this a signed copy but I am. I preordered this book from Barnes and Nobles, which the website told me that it would be a signed copy. The book came and the book looked signed but it never bleed through the book. I found out that all first edition books had a stamp signature for Cassandra Clare, which is why I consider this a signed copy. But, if you haven’t read this book, you need to!

Title: The Rose Society

Author: Marie Lu

Publisher: G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers

Released: October 13, 2015

Pages: 395 (Hardback)

Once upon a time, a girl had a father, a prince, a society of friends. Then they betrayed her, and she destroyed them all.
Adelina Amouteru’s heart has suffered at the hands of both family and friends, turning her down the bitter path of revenge. Now known and feared as the White Wolf, she flees Kenettra with her sister to find other Young Elites in the hopes of building her own army of allies. Her goal: to strike down the Inquisition Axis, the white-cloaked soldiers who nearly killed her.
But Adelina is no heroine. Her powers, fed only by fear and hate, have started to grow beyond her control. She does not trust her newfound Elite friends. Teren Santoro, leader of the Inquisition, wants her dead. And her former friends, Raffaele and the Dagger Society, want to stop her thirst for vengeance. Adelina struggles to cling to the good within her. But how can someone be good when her very existence depends on darkness?
Bestselling author Marie Lu delivers another heart-pounding adventure in this exhilarating sequel to The Young Elites.

I bought this book with the money I got for my birthday last year, and still I haven’t read it. I love the first book, The Young Elites so when Books-A-Million had signed copies of this book, I needed to get my hands on it. I was worried about the chances of me not getting a signed copy because they had a big pile and I waited about three weeks before I got it. I have it now and I really need to read it before The Midnight Star.

Title: The Retribution of Mara Dyer

Author: Michelle Hodkin

Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

Released: November 4, 2014

Pages: 470 (Hardback)

Mara Dyer wants to believe there’s more to the lies she’s been told.
There is.
She doesn’t stop to think about where her quest for the truth might lead.
She should.
She never had to imagine how far she would go for vengeance.
She will now.
Loyalties are betrayed, guilt and innocence tangle, and fate and chance collide in this shocking conclusion to Mara Dyer’s story.
Retribution has arrived.

I didn’t even know this book was signed until after we bought it and got home. We went to Books-A-Million (like normal) with my dad because my mom was studying for some test. I was mad at them because I wanted to get the book an hour before and they told me no. My two sisters and I got a book, and we also got one of their membership cards. Once I got home, I started the book – which resulted in me staying up until 3 am – and I noticed that it was signed. It was an amazing day let me tell you.

Title: The Heir

Author: Kiera Cass

Publisher: HarperTeen

Released: May 5, 2015

Pages: 346 (Hardback)

Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won Prince Maxon’s heart. Now the time has come for Princess Eadlyn to hold a Selection of her own. Eadlyn doesn’t expect her Selection to be anything like her parents’ fairy-tale love story. But as the competition begins, she may discover that finding her own happily ever after isn’t as impossible as she always thought.

I got this book at Target while I was shopping for something for my mom with my dad and sister. My parents told us that if I shared the book with my sister that they would pay for the book. Well, I will never turn down a free book. I picked up one copy but my sister then says that there is a signed copy right behind it. I picked up that book and it is still living in my room. And my sister still hasn’t read the book yet and it has been a year already.

The queen has returned.
Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. But she’s at last returned to the empire—for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past…
She has embraced her identity as Aelin Galathynius, Queen of Terrasen. But before she can reclaim her throne, she must fight.
She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die for her. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen’s triumphant return.
The fourth volume in the New York Times bestselling series continues Celaena’s epic journey and builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter her world.

For Christmas, I wanted to get as many of the Throne of Glass series and our Target had signed copies of the 4th book. I kept telling my mom about this book and even texted her pictures of the book. When I unwrapped this book for Christmas and it was the signed copy, I freaked out. I am also so happy that I got this book.

With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.
Aelin’s journey from assassin to queen has entranced millions across the globe, and this fifth installment will leave fans breathless. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?

Well, on Saturday, we went back to Books-A-Million because I needed to buy this book. I NEEDED TO! I walked in and I went over to the teen section and the book was right in front of the row so I grabbed me a copy and I was ready in less than three minutes. I want to think that I grabbed the last signed copy because I didn’t see anymore of the display. I am so excited to dive into this book.

Title: A Court of Thorns and Roses

Author: Sarah J. Maas

Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens

Released: May 5, 2015

Pages: 416 (Hardback)

She stole a life. Now she must pay with her heart.
When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she knows about only from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.
As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

Just a little fun fact: the picture icon for my blog is actually this book. But anyways, when I read this book, I borrowed it from the library because I think it was the first book of hers I read. I really enjoyed it and I wanted to own it. I kept waiting for it to be on sale but when Books-A-Million had a signed copy of the book, I needed to buy it. I bought it, whoops.

Title: A Court of Mist and Fury

Author: Sarah J. Maas

Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens

Released: May 3, 2016

Pages: 624 (Hardback)

Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.
Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world torn apart.

I bought this on a trip out of town in another Books-A-Million. My sister was already getting a book so I asked my mom if I could get one. I noticed they had signed copies of this book when I walked in and I kept saying I didn’t need it. But, I got it, along with another Nicholas Sparks book. Something I thought was interesting was our cashier had a class with Nicholas Sparks’ son. That would be awesome if I had a class with an authors kid.

What signed copy books do you have? Have you ever met any authors? Who is your favorite author? If you could have one author sign your book right in front of you, who would it be? Let me know your thoughts in the comments! And like I said before, I was not trying to brag or anything. I just wanted to share with you guys my book collection.

  1. What a great haul of signed books! I didn’t for once think that you were bragging, so really, I think the disclaimer isn’t necessary.

    I won’t lie, though. I’m sort of low-key jealous that you have a book signed by Veronica Roth. She was a pretty influential author throughout my high school years. But that jealousy is greatly outweighed by how happy I am for you! Happy reading!

    P.S. In one of my earlier blog posts, I mentioned my intention of visiting every blog that follows me and leaving a little comment love as a small expression of my gratitude. Having said that, I personally want to thank you for being a part of my readership. You are incredibly wonderful, and your support means more to me than you realize! 😊💕

  2. Aww thanks! Veronica Roth is pretty influential to me as well since she did get me reading most of the books I read today.
    Anyway, you blog is really amazing as well and I cant wait to see what you do in the future!
