Mark Your Calendars: #ZhangAndPortesInPH + Updates on Signing Tips

What is National Book Store doing to my contemporary loving heart!??? This coming July, they are bringing New York Times Bestselling authors' Amy Zhang (Falling Into Place, This Is Where The World Ends) and Andrea Portes. (Anatomy of A Misfit, The Fall of Butterflies)

If you've been a huge fan of the blog or have at least tried to bear with me through the years of blogging, you might've encountered my review of Amy Zhang's heartbreaking novel, Falling Into Place. The book sent my soul someplace for a while...then I read All The Bright Places a month after and then both of them double murdered my existence in this planet.

So here are the details of the upcoming book signing:

Misfit Adventures: #JenniferNivenInPH Event Recap

Hello there misfit booknerds! Gosh! It's been a while and seriously, I feel both happy and awful about my time off the blog but I'm glad that I somehow found the schedule that would fit me this year. Also, I did not expect work to get in the way of me really getting into reading and going through my bookish resolutions this 2016. I think that's scrapped out for now. *cries in shame*

Anyway, if you guys remember, I blogged about my anticipation of seeing Jennifer Niven, author of All The Bright Places (my favorite contemporary novel for a while now) for her book signing here in the Philippines.

Jen and I are actually very good friends and have been in contact with each other for over a year and I have been supporting (more like stalking lol) her for a long time, and the plan was that we meet each other, say, for lunch or dinner when she gets here. But because of my job and her busy schedule when she got here, with interviews here and there, we couldn't really find the time. I've set my heart into meeting her in the public signing. I said to myself, 30 seconds with her is enough for me and would make my entire year. Just the shortest amount of time meant the world to me, I didn't care at all if it wasn't as how I dreamed it was going to be.
