Can’t Be Hushed: Becca Fitzpatrick in Manila!

March 29, 2014 is one of the grandest days I’ve ever had as a book blogger. This post chronicles the day that Manila bookworms couldn’t be hushed as Becca Fitzpatrick, New York Times Bestselling author of the Hush, Hush saga, had a book signing at National Book Store Glorietta 1.

Prior to the event, I attended the bloggers forum where the whole PH YA Book Bloggers crew bonded a lot  and of course, had the opportunity to ask Becca Fitzpatrick some questions. Exuding a friendly, sweet, and gentle disposition, the lovely Becca graciously interacted with us. It was such a delight listening to her as she voiced out her thoughts. Her answers provided enlightening insights about her books and her writing journey. For the full transcript of the Q&A, you may head over toThe Bookaholic Blurbs’ post here.

After the bloggers forum was the book signing event! Hush, Hush fans waited excitedly for Becca’s arrival. Soon, the modulated noise crescendoed into the highest tone of cheers as Becca entered the venue. It was an amazing melody! It felt like I was watching a concert and the band is about to perform their grand finale. Anything but silence vibrated throughout the room.

That day was totally unforgettable! Big thanks to National Book Store and Simon & Schuster for making this event possible! We all had a great time! But most of all, thanks to Becca Fitzpatrick for visiting the Philippines! We hope to see you again sometime in the future. 🙂
