Hey

Hi guys! I am really really having a hard time balancing things right now and I am sorry for not being able to post for my weekly features for almost a month now. I am still putting them on hold since I cannot promise to post weekly. But I will still post reviews whenever I have the time.

I have also been on a reading slump. I just can’t finish a certain book. Maybe because I have so many things to do and there a lot of things clouding up my mind as of the moment. I promise to make it up to this blog when things get really better. I don’t know when, but I’m sure it will.

Kiera Cass: Book Signing @ Glorietta

So yesterday was the first ever book signing event I attended, since I wasn’t really active in such events before. But a few months ago, I have been reading book blogs and read a lot of exciting bookish events. Ever since, I really wanted to go to events, plus I actually want to meet my fellow book bloggers and be friends with them. We actually got there at around 10:15, and whoa, I was already the 107th person to register!! And to think that the mall has just opened at the time.

At around 4PM exactly, National Bookstore was filled with excited Kiera fans! Everyone was actually screaming when Kiera appeared in front of us and, I assumed, she was actually touched by the crowd’s warm welcome because she was teary-eyed! There was a short interview before the actual signing started, and four people had the chance to ask her a question. I was so speechless since she was just a few steps in front of me.

It took an hour and 30 minutes before I actually had my books signed. I am still thankful for being the 107th person. Holy guacamole, there were 600+ people in there who wanted their books signed.

Finally, the most awaited. I get to hug and talk to her!!! Though, the event’s team were quite in a hurry because I understand that there are still a lot of people at the back. But still, you guys!! I was able to hug and talk to Kiera! Jeez, my feels!!! :’)

I left as soon as I got my books signed and as soon as I thanked and hugged Hazel! I really owe her one, because I forgot to bring a camera. It was nice of her to suggest of taking my photo since it was my first ever book signing. I am also glad to have met her, since she was actually my inspiration in putting up this book blog ♥

No. 107!!

I am just so happy that my books are signed!  The really long line + the wait + being scolded by Mom for going home late was all worth it! Kiera has been so kind and patient to all of us! ♥

Hi!

Reading has always been my escape from the big world. It was when I grew too old from playing pretend with my brother that I fell in love with books. It’s fascinating how you can travel the world, enter new and exciting wonderlands and meet new kinds of people with books.

Book shops has always been a playground to me upon growing up, the unique scent of books comfort me and the quiet and sweet ambiance makes me want to sit and read for hours.

My Mom would usually scold me for buying books almost every weekend. But it’s hard to make people understand how wonderful it is to invest in books rather than other things. Sure, I like clothes like all the girls out there, but I have a special love for books that I don’t settle for pdfs. My books are my collection which I will show my future son or daughter, and probably pass my passion for reading to them.

This blog will be the proof of my unending love for books. So stay tuned and keep booked! :)
