15 Hilarious And Savage-As-Hell Book Dedications That'll Have You Rolling

SEPTEMBER 26, 2017  —  By Corinne S.

Most book dedications are personal (and sometimes generic) messages from the author to their loved ones, which is why many readers gloss over them.

Some writers, however, have found great pleasure in making theirs as entertaining as possible, to their readers' collective delight. From taking jabs at family members to insulting people of the past who did them wrong, these 15 authors filled their dedications with personality. Whether they're creative, ridiculous, or hilarious, one thing's for sure about them -- they definitely aren't boring!

1. "Opened up my Finance textbook and found this dedication."

2. "Skulduggery Pleasant: Mortal Coil" by Derek Landy

3. "This Book Is Full of Spiders: Seriously, Dude, Don't Touch It" by David Wong

4. "Diary of a Mad Diva" by Joan Rivers

5. "I Wonder What I'm Thinking About?" by Moose Allain

6. "No Way Back" by Matthew Klein

7. "An Introduction To Algebraic Topology" by Joseph J. Rotman

8. "Picked up a book by my lecturer and I'm pretty sure the dedication is to his dog."

9. "Moxie" by Jennifer Mathieu

10. The "Animorphs" series by K. A. Applegate

11. "Available: A Memoir of Heartbreak, Hookups, Love and Brunch" by Matteson Perry
