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

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!
