My Signed Books Collection!

Greetings readers!

I am finally on my March break (Spring break) and it feels glorious to know that I will be away from that wretched school of mine! Joking…it’s not wretched…well only slightly! So, one day I had a mini conversation that inspired this post with a special blogger friend, Mandy @ Book Princess Reviews . You should all go check her out because she has an amazing blog, with amazing reviews and is just generally awesome! (<3 you Mandy!)

Now since this post idea was inspired by Mandy, I felt it necessary to create it and make her feel jealous! Mwahaha! Just kidding! I won’t make you too jealous…maybe. Today I shall be sharing with you all the books I have signed in my collection. I have acquired these books over the past year, from June of 2016 to today. I hold all signed books close to my heart because the author took the time to dedicate their book to me and sometimes I see them physically touch and sign my book, so I fangirl like crazy! *That does not sound creepy whatsoever!*

Let’s start with the first signing I ever went to!

It wasn’t really a signing but more of an event for Romance writers that the public could attend…if they payed the ticket fee. I knew Morgan Rhodes was going to be there, so I had to go and dragged my sister along. It was the first time I ever met Morgan Rhodes (or an author for that matter) and even though I only talked to her for a few minutes it was one of the best moments ever! *I was internally fangirling and blushing like crazy…I was that nervous*

  1. Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
  2. A Book of Spirits and Thieves by Morgan Rhodes

In June, I went to another signing featuring Morgan Rhodes, E.K. Johnston and Teresa Toten. I only had books for Morgan to sign that day, but it was so wonderful seeing and listening to the other authors as well.

  1.  Rebel Spring  by Morgan Rodes
  2. Gathering Darkness by Morgan Rhodes

In August, I was lucky enough to attend the Indigo Teen Fall Preview Event hosted  by my local bookstore Chapters Indigo. Surprisingly, E.K. Johnston joined our meeting and I was able to get an ARC of Spindle signed! (It is the companion to A Thousand Nights…you should definitely read it!)

  1. Spindle (ARC) by E.K. Johnston

In September, I went to the HCCFrenzy author signing featuring Lauren Oliver and Kendare Blake! You can read more about that signing in my Teen Tour Experience post! I actually had Three Dark Crowns made out to my sisters and I because we are going to buddy read it! Also, Lauren Oliver signed REPLICA twice! One signature and message on each side! So Cool!!!

  1. Three Dark Crowns by Kendare  Blake
  2. Replica (LYRA) by Lauren Oliver
  3. Replica (GEMMA) by Lauren Oliver

In October, I had the amazing opportunity to go to another signing event! Penguin Teen brought their teen tour to Brampton and so I had the chance to meet Morgan Rhodes (again 🙂 ), Catherine Egan, Kiersten White and Marie Lu! I was so incredibly happy that day, you can read more about that event in my The Lady is a Champ – Experience post!

I honestly get so giddy when I look at these books!

  1. Legend, Prodigy & Champion by Marie Lu
  2. The Young Elites, The Rose Society & The Midnight Star by Marie Lu
  3. Illusions of Fate by Kiersten White

In December, I got lucky and won a giveaway for an ARC of Blood Rose Rebellion by Rosalyn Eves! I didn’t think it would come signed but I am so happy it did! You can read my review here!

  1. Blood Rose Rebellion  by Rosalyn Eves

In January, I got lucky again and won a signed hardcover of Poison’s Kiss by Breeana Shields. Please take a moment to admire this beautiful signature!

Finally, in February I got lucky AGAIN! I won a signed hardcover of Frostblood by Elly Blake! (Another Canadian author YAY). I also attended the Veronica Roth signing for her Carve the Mark Tour and got the book for FREE and SIGNED! You can read more about that hilarious night in my Veronica Roth Event Experience.

  1. Frostblood by Elly Blake
  2. Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

That is it for my signed books! I have a total of 18! It feels so cool when I say that. Of course, I could have had 20 if I had gone to the Leigh Bardugo and Sabaa Tahir signings the year before, BUT NO I DIDN’T AND IT IS THE BIGGEST, LARGEST, MOST MASSIVE REGRET I HAVE! *cries*

Anyways, I will be getting more signed books in the near future! I will be meeting Sarah J. Maas when she comes to my town in May for her A Court of Wings and Ruin tour. It’s time for me to jump on that bandwagon. I will be getting Crown of Midnight signed with some other books and I, of course will obsess over Chaol and his novel! Look forward for that event recap!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and are feeling envious. Just kidding! Tell me about your signed books and author meetings below so I can get super jealous! Seriously, if any of you mention meeting Sabaa and Leigh I will get CRAZY jealous!

Happy reading!

      I’m lucky. Morgan Rhodes & E.K. Johnston are local authors so they have regular signings when they release books. For American authors…it’s rare. And I don’t get to go to all the famous author signings because they are too far! But whenever they do come close by, I run to take the chance. I’m lucky SJ Maas is coming to my town, she could have gone somewhere larger but the tour stops here. It’s just luck I guess. I’m so sorry! It must be so hard seeing everyone else go meet authors. Usually you have to beg your bookstore to pitch for a tour stop, maybe you can start leaving subtle hints?

    You’ve got an amazing collection! I have a couple I should share that I’ve won and some I have gotten signed (there aren’t many book events in MI). I am so envious of your Marie Lu collection.
    It made me laugh when you put the Rendz sticker on your name! Super anonymous style! 😉

      I would LOVE to see your collection! I have been a Marie Lu fan for a long time so it is so great to have two series signed by her! Thank you for appreciating my makeshift sticker cover up! I would have left my real name, but you all know me as Rendz and I don’t want to change that! 😂 I did a sloppy job but I at least coordinated colours hehehe! Anonymity at its best 😉

        I loved it! Sour stealth! It was so cute!
        My collection is nothing like yours. Nothing at all. But I don’t have as many events near me and I am newer to the blogging and reading thing. I actually stopped reading for a long time, and didn’t start again regularly until about 2 years ago…then the blog is only 7 or 8 months old…so I’m just catching up! But I’ll share them with everyone!

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Even better and more jealous inspiring than I first imagined 😉 that is such a ridiculously cool collection, though, Rendz. I can definitely see the Morgan Rhodes love now, and she seems so cool to keep coming back. Also, Spindle!! And that is also so cool that Lauren Oliver signed both sides. This was such a cool post and i was so eager to see what book was coming next!! And also, the Rendz sticker had me dying XD but it was perfect. Fantastic job, and it surpassed my signed book dreams. I feel the need to go hunt down some personalized, signed books now.

      HAHAHA YES MORE APPRECIATION FOR MY STICKER JOB 😂😂😂 Its terrible omg, but I wanted to keep my name as Rendz for you all! I coordinated colours to make up for that sloppy cover up with white 😁😂 I’m glad this upped your jealousy levels. That was the goal and the goal was achieved! I just love going to signings even if I act like a fool. I can’t wait to see what books you’ll get signed in the future. Maybe I’ll get super jealous then😉

        LOL. YESSSSSS. I noticed that you color coordinated, and color me impressed…that was lame, but can we just go for it? XD But hehehehe yesssss, you super achieved. LOL, but yes. I’ve never made it to one (there’s never any where I live D:), but I can imagine it’s amazing…even when being foolish (but trust me, I would be in the same boat as you XD). Lol, thank you! I think I literally only have two that were signed and personalized? One from a giveaway but the other is my crowning achievement: Kasie West. But I never got to go so it does take a tiny bit away. The rest of mine come from signed bookplates and I think only one of those is personalized. XD But still I shall never complain because it’s all epic. But thank you for the future wishes. Hopefully you will have more amazing ones in your future, too, Rendz!!

    This is so beautiful lol! I don’t have a signed copy of any book yet. .-. I don’t ever get to go to signings, because they always happen way too far away. But this has made me want to try even harder. 😀
