Hurray! We made it (rather, I made it) to day thuuureeee of #FlashbackFebruary! (why does everything have to be hashtagged nowadays?) I'm kind of groggy as I'm typing this so bear with me. Don't worry though, there's not much of a difference compared to when I've had a full 6-hour sleep. Say, when did 8 hours stop being the normal length?
Just in case you need reminding about my giveaways:
And we fly!
DAY 3 OF SAB-GIVES-AWAY-BOOKS-AND-TRANSCRIBES-AUDIO-RECORDINGS-BECAUSE-IT'S-FLASHBACK-FEBRUARY!
*jazz hands and crazy eyes*
October 18th of last year (it's crazy how time flies!), National Bookstore brought Claudia Gray and Madeleine Roux to Manila for a book signing day at Glorietta 1. I swear, they sure spoiled us last year!
I got the opportunity to meet Claudia Gray -- the woman responsible for making me cry when I thought there weren't any physical copies of her book anymore at the store. (Backstory: I read the eARC of A Thousand Pieces of You and went absolutely gaga over it. When it came to the book signing, I was told there were no more copies of it. I cried... a bit... SERIOUSLY just a bit. Like, it didn't even roll down my cheek. I looked like this though. But as it turns out -- there were still copies in the backroom and I quickly felt like a huge dork for loosing mah cool like that. As if I had any cool to begin with.) And of course, I was also excited to meet Madeleine Roux. She just looks super badass -- with her do and her books? Hellz yeah.
A side story: Madeleine was wearing a yellow House Baratheon shirt-dress that day. I think I love her.
Here were are again with yet another Q&A! I actually arrived 20 minutes late this day! So while the other bloggers in attendance have 40-minute recordings posted on their blogs, I only have 19 minutes and 55 seconds of Q&A to share with you all but I promise, they're worth the read.
And don't forget! Giveaway at the end of the post!
