I was inspired to hunt for epigraphs in my book collection while reading this post by Sanne at Books and Quills. She didn't seem to find that many in her books, but I actually found quite a few! This is just a selection of my favourites.

Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne

Peter Pan in Scarlet by Geraldine McCaughrean
The J.M. Barrie Ladies' Swimming Society by Barbara J. Zitwer

Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Vera Rigler

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith
Smoke and Mirrors by Neil Gaiman
Captain Corelli's Mandolin by Louis de Bernières
The Restaurant at the End of the Universe by Douglas Adams
...and over the page!
The Ebb Tide by Robert Louis Stevenson; Taken at the Flood by Agatha Christie

Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl
Bonjour Tristesse by Françoise Sagan
The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis

What do you think of these lovely epigraphs? Have you found any interesting ones in your books? Let me know in the comments! 


  1. Oh how neat! I had no idea that's what that is called. The lawyer one gave me a good chuckle.

    Thanks so much for joining in on the Social Bloggers Rachel!

    1. I had no idea either until I saw the post on Sanne's blog! I can't believe how many of these I'd never noticed before. Glad you enjoyed them! :)
