I just got these books signed this summer and they are my most precious signed books! Tamora Pierce is my favorite author and it was amazing to finally meet her - and to have her sign my old paperbacks that I've reread countless times. Totally worth the stress of getting to her signing.
Have you met your favorite author?
Happy Monday, lovelies!
I spent most of today painting walls indoors and pulling weeds outdoors.
Finally, though, you can see why I’ve been reluctant to replace my copy of A RING OF ENDLESS LIGHT (as I mentioned the other day). The #augustbookstagram18 prompt for today is “signed books.” From 1999 to 2001, I had the amazing blessing of seeing Madeleine L’Engle in person about a dozen times. Ergo, many of my copies of her books are autographed. My favorites are pictured here.
Along with my weirdly contorted hand holding a mug of tea. 🤷🏻♀️
Now available: Signed copies of Warcross, An Enchantment of Ravens and Song of the Current!
These books can only be purchased individually, along with other past @uppercasebox books.
You can find them by going to Slyfur.com!
This months @uppercasebox finally made it here and it was so adorable! This one gets a solid 4 💫 from me! The necklace promo was great and the journal don’t judge it until you open it. Because it is so amazing. Great@for any Wizarding World fan! The paper product this month was two cards which work gresrnif you send cards to people. And this month’s book was of course Dance of Thieves by @maryepearson which I will be binge reading the original series as well as this spin off next week. #uppercase#unboxing#wizardingworld#swords#cards#youarearareedition#signedbooks#maryepearson#danceofthieves
✨Q: How many signed books do you own? .
Today’s prompt for #augustbookstagram18 is ‘signed books’
I don’t have all that many because I only have the ones I’ve received direct in the mail from lovely authors who have sent me books for review, or ones I received in book boxes! .
All of these signed books came in past @owlcrate boxes 💜. .
Speaking of Owlcrate, there are just a few days left to order the August ‘Ruthless Royals’ box, then September’s ‘Masters of Disguise’ box will go on sale! .
As well as the cover being exclusive, the book for September will also have something beautiful and exclusive printed on the naked hardback! 😱
There will be items from Harry Potter, Six of Crows, The Diabolic, The KISS of Deception and A Darker Shade of Magic! .
Don’t forget to use code BOOKBOOK to save when you order!
Hii everyone! Hope you had a great weekend!
I wanted to tell you that I meet Marissa Meyer last Thursday! And it was awesome! She is so nice and funny and I had a really nice time! ✨
Queria agradecerle a @vreditorasya por traerla a mi país, por qué sin duda fue una experiencia inolvidable❤️ Ame cada segundo y lo pase hermoso!
Espero que hagan mas cosas cómo estás! ✨Challenges✨

I love this photo challenge because I collect signed copies of my favorite books and I love to see what other people have, too. Today’s prompt is any book so I’m going with Marie Lu’s books! Marie Lu is one of my favorite authors, and I’m so happy to have been able to purchase these signed copies from @bookoutlet, @oldfirehousebooks, and @booksofwonder. I also met Marie at a book festival this summer and had the rest of my books by her signed and she was so wonderful. 💕
P.S. I can’t wait for Wildcard!

Happy 3rd anniversary to #signedbooksundays ! Today’s theme is to feature any book! When I was at @yallwest earlier this year I brought my copy of #oneofusislying by the sweet @writerkmc While I waited in line I got to meet a young beautiful 15 year old girl who was there with her mom. We got chatting about books & the conversation quickly led to her mom trying to gain my help in convincing her daughter to buy less books. Unfortunately she was asking the wrong person as I have books strewn all throughout my house. I did make sure she was aware of ebooks & audio outlets like @audible_com & @scribd but there was no convincing her. She loves to feel the books in her hands while she reads them. I also learned she was an aspiring writer & getting to see her interact with Karen was heartwarming. Seeing young people passionate about reading & writing was my biggest takeaway from #YALLWest It was definitely one of my favorite experiences of that day. .
Celebrate this weeks #signedbooksundays theme by showing off your #signedbooks to enter to win even more signed books from @bookcrushin & @diamondxgirl .
Happy third anniversary to @bookcrushin @diamondxgirl and #signedbooksundays
What better than Simon and Cath and Baz and Levi to celebrate this Special Day!?
I'm allergic to most flowers, but these were too pretty and Hazel picked them, so I'm suffering happily.
If you could only read one author for the rest of your life, or read whatever you wanted but never finish a book, which would you choose?
Lawrence of Arabia is one of my favorite movies, so I was really excited to pick this up. The Mint is a book written by T. E. Lawrence and published posthumously. It describes his time in the Royal Air Force, working, despite having held senior rank in the army (colonel), as an ordinary aircraftman, under an assumed name, 352087 Ross. This is a copy of the limited edition, one of 2,000 copies in quarter leather. Though not called for, this copy has been additionally signed by A. W. Lawrence, T. E.’s youngest brother and literary executor who wrote the introduction. A nice copy in scuffed and soiled slipcase.
Day 20 of #augustbookstagram18 - Signed books. I don't have a ton of signed books (yet), but most of those that I do have are from @owlcrate . That's one of the main things I really like about their company! Plus, they do have cute bookish items as well. Hoping one day they will have a literary scarf in their box. Keeping my fingers crossed for fall/winter. HINT...HINT @owlcrate ..lol...
