Favorite Dedication Pages

My favorite thing to do when I get a new book is read the dedication page. I find them so personal, simple and lovely. Today I am going to share a few with you that I have read and I quite loved.
1. The Fray Theory by  Nelou Keramati
To our collective consciousness


2. Act of Will by Barbara Taylor Bradford
Dedicated with love to the memory of my parents, Winston and Freda Taylor. She gave me the greatest gift a mother can give a child, the desire to excel. He taught me to be strong of heart and stand tall.
It is also for my husband Bob, whose love and support has equaled theirs, with all of my love.


3. Never Never by Brianna R. Shrum
For dad.
Hope your big adventure is everything we dreamed it will be


4. The Unforgettables by G.L Tomas
To all the geeks, nerds, weirdos, and kids (including adult – kids like us) that broke the mold even when no one saw it.
Your magic is real. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.


5. Wedding at King’s Convenience by Maureen Child
To Kate Carlisle
A great friend, a terrific writer, and the one person I want to share a latte with before RWA meetings!


6. Bedding the Secret Heiress by Emilie Rose
This one’s for LaShawn.
Thank you for teaching me to dance like nobody’s watching.
7. Shanghai Girls by Lisa See
For my cousin Leslee Leong, my cohort in memory keeping.


Are dedication pages important to you? Do you like them? What are some of your favorites? Let’s discuss below.
Happy Monday and a lovely week ahead. 🙂

  1. Aw, this is sweet. I love dedication pages. I always make sure to read them and if there is a little quote or story, I like to let it sink in a little. I don’t know if that makes sense. Great idea for a post !

  2. I love reading the dedications! Most of them are just names of people we don’t know, but sometimes you get ones that really stand out 🙂 lovely post!

  3. I always read the dedication and acknowledgments.

    My favourite is in Waiting For Callback: Take Two by Perdita and Honor Cargill.

    OK, you never mastered ‘fetch’, but you were an all-round excellent dog and the best writing companion ever. We miss you (and if we earn you’ll get your urn).”

  4. Hey there! This post could not be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this write-up to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!|
