One of the most anticipated events of the year has reached its final date and I am so stoked to share with you how swell this event has been. National Book Store brought not one but THREE New York Times Best Selling Young Adult Authors in Manila. Meeting Ransom Riggs and Tahereh Mafi the second time is just mind-blowing knowing that they wouldn't remember me but they did! And Veronica Rossi's so gorgeous and swell friendly in person! There were almost 2000 people who lined up for the public signing and yes, I was so lucky to have been given the chance to attend the Bloggers Forum, thus meeting these authors upclose and personal.
Where I relive the experience and share all the feels before, during and after meeting these fantastic authors WHO ARE BASICALLY LIFE.
"The most important lesson I wanted you to take away is the one you needed to hear the most. But I think that what emerged from me and what I noticed after writing the books is that there are two main ideas: first was the idea of being persistent, treating others well, love and kindness that you can be happy and that you can find happiness. The second is the idea of home. Is it actually a roof, is it the people you have in your life? What home really means to you."
The forum didn't also last long because the public signing would start in an hour. So we took what we could and did what we would normally do in a short span of time. I think this is the first time we all fangirled this hard. I mean, there were a little pushing and a lot of rushing but still enjoyed the entire forum nonetheless. You wouldn't pass on having the chance to giggle with your bookish friends around your favorite authors.
|Awesome authors signing awesome books!|
Also, we didn't attend the public signing anymore. Why you asked. We didn't want to add up to the number of people having their books signed and also we weren't needed there anymore. So we just dropped by and took these pictures.

Am so privileged for having been chosen as a part of Bloggers Forum and I truly feel that all my years of investing in blogging has finally paid off. Thank you National Book Store for recognizing my labor of love for books and for choosing me to attend this swell event. I will be forever grateful for all the chances you've allowed me to grab.
(Oh, and how many times did I say SWELL again? Because this was really a SWELL SWELL TIME!!)
Thank you ever so much (over and over again) #PHYABookBloggers , Veronica Rossi, Ransom Riggs, Tahereh Mafi and National Book Store for making my bookish life phenomenal!
