Event Recap: Jennifer E. Smith and Lissa Price in Manila!

I’m sure lots of Filipino bookworms’ hearts exploded with happiness when National Book Store announced that authors Jennifer E. Smith and Lissa Price are coming to the Philippines. And one of those hearts was mine! 🙂

Fast forward to September 21, 2014—Book Signing in Manila!

We had a Q & A with Jen and Lissa who are both friendly and full of wisdom. I enjoyed listening to them talk about writing and their books! Their thoughtful answers are truly great motivation for me to do my best every time I write.

*You may listen to the audio recording of the Q & A here.

Meeting Jen was a dream come true! Some of you might know that I’m a huge contemporary YA fan and Jennifer E. Smith is one of my super favorite authors in that genre. I’ve always wished to meet her in person someday and I didn’t expect that someday would come sooner than I thought! 🙂 While I haven’t read any of Lissa Price’s books yet, it was still a great pleasure to meet her. She’s a wonderful conversationalist who gave very helpful writing advice.

Furthermore, seeing my fellow book bloggers made the day even better. As always, we talked about our latest reads and upcoming books. I’ll never get tired of sharing bookish thoughts with my blogger friends! Our energies, when it comes to books, become one huge ball of effervescence. We’re truly a gleeful bunch of bookworms!

September 21 was indeed a HAPPY day from START to END. 🙂

Thank you so much to the brilliant National Book Store for bringing Jen and Lissa to the Philippines! You guys are extraordinary. Love you loads! ❤ Can’t wait for the next bookish event!
