For this week we are meant to talk about authors we want to meet or have met for The Broke and the Bookish Top Ten Tuesday meme. While there are some authors I’d love to meet, you will most likely be able to name them anyway if you know me a little. And the list is not very long. For that reason I decided to change the topic for today a bit.
I’ll be sharing with you the books I have gotten signed, by the author themselves or won through a giveaway for instance.
- Onder Mijn Huid by Marlies Slegers
I won this through a facebook giveaway through the publisher. I have yet to read it though. I have not been in the mood yet.
- De Stem van de Zee (Eiland in the Mist 1) by Mara Li
I got this signed by the author herself which was great.
- In Transit by Margaretha van Andel
I got this signed by the author at the same event as the previous book. It was great to hear her talk about her book and she seemed like a lovely lady.
- Talon, Rogue and Soldier by Julie Kagawa
I completey forgot that Julie Kagawa would be visiting a book store in a city nearby back in September and I was so sad (because I was still getting rid of those pesky pregnancy hormones, haha). When we visited the book store a few weeks later they had these signed so I bought them.
- Het Laatste Licht by Jen Minkman
It was great to see Jen in person after having seen her on social media and after having reviewed two of her books. So I bought another one and got it signed.
Other Signed Things
- Book plate and book mark signed by Jess Cluess
When you pre ordered her book she send out some pre order swag!
- Book plate signed by Anne Bishop
I got a goodiebag for The Others series by Anne Bishop by the Dutch publisher for sort of pre ordering the fourth release and in it was the book plate.
- Book mark signed by Vanessa Gerrits
As you could read in my post about the event, I got a book mark signed by Vanessa Gerrits.
Not a whole lot but still I’m happy with what I have. Do you own signed books? Do you stick your book plates in the books? Because I haven’t yet. For some reason something stops me from doing that.
