My Signed Books Collection | Second Edition

Greetings readers!

Over a year ago, I did a post where I showcased all my signed books and talked about how I got them signed. Well my signed collection has grown since then, and I wanted to share an updated version with you all!

I am very lucky to live in a city where authors do come. It’s still rare that author visits happen, but far more often than other places so I am very grateful.


Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh


I won this in a giveaway hosted by author Sarah Nicole Lemon of Done Dirt Cheap and Valley Girls. Being the nimkompoop that I am, I still haven’t read it, but I am hoping to do an Ahdieh binge soon!

The Caged Queen by Kristen Ciccarelli


I got this in a Book Outlet order and I was very surprised when I saw that it came signed! I have never had that happen to me before and I was super ecstatic to find it!

The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall


So every time I would go to this used bookstore I would see that they carried one hardcover copy of The Penderwicks. Every time I would talk myself out of buying it because I already owned a copy. However, this last time I went I decided I was going to buy it regardless. So I picked it up and just started to flip through it, when I looked at the cover page and saw that it was SIGNED FIRST EDITION. I lost it. Never did I run to the cash register faster.

Supernova by Marissa Meyer




Save the Date by Morgan Matson


Despite not having read a single one of her books, I went to Matson’s signing in Toronto with my friend. Luckily I was able to come up with something to say while I got my book signed. You can read that author event recap here.

The Beauty of the Moment by Tanaz Bhathena


I loved this book and I am so glad I got the chance to meet her at the last Penguin Teen Social. She even read my review, told me she loved it and gave me a hug! She is such a sweet person in real life and she is definitely one of my top Canadian authors!

The Triumphant by Lesley Livingston


Same story, I met her at the Penguin Teen Social. Although this is the last book in her trilogy and I haven’t read the first two *oops*, I’m very excited to though! It’s all about female gladiators, so naturally our conversation flowed to talking about The Gladiator, Hans Zimmer and more.

Nocturna by Maya Motayne


I was very excited about meeting Maya and I may have been overly um emotional that day. So while I am very glad to have this book signed and personalized to me in Spanish!, I uh am kind of traumatized from the event XD Read more about it here!

Blood and Sand by C.V. Wyk


This one is a bit bitter sweet. Wyk put out the announcement that her publisher decided to cancel the publication of her sequel, which is crushing because the book is actually amazing! She was lovely enough to do a reader appreciation and send out signed bookplates and swag! I jumped at the chance and love the aesthetic of it all!

Untamed Shore by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

I was head over heels excited when I found out I won a signed copy of one of my favourite author’s books! She even dated it, so I shall never forget the year I got it!

Last Star Burning by Caitlin Sangster

I won this in a twitter giveaway with a haiku I made from using the three words in the title:
The last day in time
When that star shines too brightly
The burning world dies

Maud by Melanie Fishbane

I won this for telling the story of how I was first introduced to Anne of Green Gables.

Book Plates

The Light Between Worlds by Laura E. Weymouth


I got this bookplate as part of the pre-order incentive! It comes with the most important quote on the book and I’m very happy to have it.

The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi

I got a signed bookplate for being part of the Street Team! I still have yet to read the book, so I am possibly the worst street team member out there, but it will happen very soon!

Cinder, Scarlet, Cress by Marissa Meyer

In the same giveaway I won Supernova I also won three book plates which I promptly stuck into my copies of the Lunar Chronicles!

Let me know what you think! Do you own signed books? Do you have a particular favourite signed book? Have you ever met an author you really love?

Happy reading!

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!

  1. Poison’s Kiss by Breeana Shields

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!
