NOT SHOWN (pictures will go up later)

Signed copies of Divergent + Insurgent.

Here's the deal: I purchased these books because a) I wanted the exclusive content booklet and b) because I was told by a store clerk that the books would be personally signed if I added that note in the comments section. Both Insurgent and Divergent were signed. No personalization. When I called, they said that Veronica doesn't personally sign unless it's at the event. I'm not sure if this is because it's a bookstore policy or not. A part of me think that that's the issue here.

Don't get me wrong--I am HAPPY to have books signed by Veronica Roth (personalized or not). It's just that I'd rather wait to see her in person. Plus, what I got in the mail wasn't what I was told I would get. Therefore, I do plan on returning these books for a full refund. If I can't, then I'll just give these books away on the blog.


  1. EEEK. I hope you LOVE The Chaos Walking Trilogy as much I did. And happy belated birthday! :D

    Have a great week.

  2. Nice collection of books. I'm sorry you didn't get what you expected with the Roth books. I haven't had a chance to see her yet. I hope to one day. I'd like autographed copies. My new books posts are at Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media. Happy reading.

  3. Every book store's policy is different when it comes to signed books and sometimes publishers will put restrictions on books at Signings. Nice haul as well. Dark Unwinding was okay for me.


  4. You got so many amazing books! I hope you enjoy them all. I'm sorry you didn't quite get what you were looking for on the Roth books, hopefully they will let you return them.

  5. Happy birthday! It was also my birthday this week :) Masque of the Red Death sounds awesome and so does The Dark Unwinding. I hope you enjoy all of your books!
