Okay, you booknerds, listen up.
Just kidding. I really don't have any big announcement to make. Except for...
I'm giving away a signed copy of Hollow City by Ransom Riggs? Yep. That's right. Last Saturday, National Book Store brought Veronica Rossi, Tahereh Mafi and Ransom Riggs to the Philippines for a book signing at the Glorietta Activity Center. (If you missed my recap, you can just click this link right here: ME! ME! Click me!) I can't express just how thankful I am that I got to see all three of them in person. It's a weird feeling every time I attend a book signing. It's pretty much like meeting a rockstar (I haven't). They kinda are. ;)
I'm not actually done with Miss Peregrine's yet. I'm stuck at chapter four. Hee hee. But I have a perfectly good excuse! I'm a scaredy cat. I was reading it when... at night. It was super quiet then suddenly, I heard the stairs creaking like somebody was going up. NOBODY WAS HOME. While I know that the heat may have just caused the wood to expand and make tiny noises, it still freaked me out! It's Ransom Riggs' fault! His writing is so darn good. And the pictures make the reading experience even better (if getting scared is better, then YEAH).
I wasn't able to get a copy of Miss Peregrine's but heeeey~ Hollow City. Still as awesome! And I'm sure I'll enjoy it just as much :D
A preview of the creepiness.
