You may skip over them or you may read them diligently, but author dedications are one of my favorite parts of reading a book! Some of them are sweet, other are heart-breaking, but sometimes you stumble upon that one dedication in a book that just makes you laugh so hard your stomach hurts. Well, today, I will be sharing some of the funniest author dedications in books. If you need something to lift your spirits today, you have come to the right place, because these dedications are absolutely fantastic.
the house of hades, by rick riordan
To my wonderful readers: Sorry about that last cliff-hanger. Well, no, not really. HAHAHAHA. But seriously, I love you guys.
my shit life so far, by frankie boyle
To all my enemies, I will destroy you.

For Aman who said:
“Say something cool about me.”
otherland Vol-1-5, by tad williams
1 – This Book is dedicated to my father Joseph Hill Evans with love. Actually Dad doesn’t read fiction, so if someone doesn’t tell him about this, he’ll never know.
2 – This Book is dedicated to my father Joseph Hill Evans with love. As I said before, Dad doesn’t read fiction. He still hasn’t noticed that this thing is dedicated to him. This is Volume Two—let’s see how many more until he catches on.
3 – This is still dedicated to you-know-who, even if he doesn’t. Maybe we can keep this a secret all the way to the final volume.
4 – My father still hasn’t actually cracked any of the books—so, no, he still hasn’t noticed. I think I’m just going to have to tell him. Maybe I should break it to him gently.
5 – Everyone here who hasn’t had a book dedicated to them, take three steps forward. Whoops, Dad, hang on there for a second…
let’s pretend this never happened: a mostly true memoir, by jenny lawson
I want to thank everyone who helped me created this book, except for that guy who yelled at me in Kmart when I was eight because he thought I was being “too rowdy.”
You’re an asshole, sir.
